Are you looking into moving? Are you scared of the cost of moving, and want to move yourself in the easiest, most convenient way possible? If so, you probably want to pack by yourself. You will need storage that can be set up anywhere. Most of all, you want something easy to move. If so, you may want to look into pods for moving.
Pods are so mobile because they have their roots in the container shipping industry. Invented in the 1960s, containers are very large steel boxes that can ride of a variety of transportation. They can be customized as ship containers, rail cars, and truck containers, and be moved to each very easily. Every move is a savings on packing and repacking trailers.
Pods are used for much the same reason as containers. Most pods are made of steel, and are generally air tight. Some models are climate controlled for temperature sensitive goods. Best of all, all pods can survive virtually any weather, even severe weather.
Perhaps the biggest reason to use pods is cost. Pods are cheap to lease, very durable, and easy to move. Because of their inter modal nature, you can tow them on trailers, and long distance movers can use them on trucks. Such changes dramatically lowers conversion and transportation costs, and lets companies pass the savings to you the consumer.
Pods are a great way to store and transport their goods. Not only are they weather proof and can be climate controlled, but they can go virtually anywhere. The cost savings on most pods are tremendous, and allow you to reap the savings movers generate. So next time you move, consider a self storage pod. Whether you hire a mover to drive for you, or you act as your own mover, a pod can dramatically lower transport costs.
