Portable storage, or mobile storage, containers emulate the stationary type of storage unit you'd rent at a storage facility. The only difference is that they're dropped off and picked up at your convenience.
A truck will drop off the storage container at your house. Once you pack it with all your stuff, you can keep it on your property or have the mobile storage company pick it up and take it back to their warehouse. Moving? They can also deliver it to your new home.
The PODS interaction was terrific. Excellent communication, very respectful and timely. We moved cross-country and had to store our belongings for 6 months while our new home was under construction. Everything arrived in perfect condition and PODS also offered referrals for moving help, which was great!!— Marlene K., Cleveland, OH
A+ Service. It's very rare that I deal with a company that delivers on everything it says but this is one. If you're moving I highly recommend this place. They arrived on time and had my stuff moved from across the country much sooner than I expected and delivered everything on schedule.— Bobby D., CA
Amazing. I will never use another moving company! I will highly recommend U-Pack to anyone who asks. Could not have had a better, easier, faster, no hassle moving experience. Totally worth the price for the pickup/drop off. Thank you guys all so much!— Fae G., Englewood, CO

One of the most common reasons people need storage is that they're moving to a new home. Portable storage is a safe and convenient solution for getting all of your stuff where it needs to go - especially if you have to deal with the weird in-between stage of not having anywhere to put it. The best part of using portable storage for moving is that the company can then deliver your unit to your new home!
Some moves can be tricky. For example, your new home might not be ready when you move out of your old home. Portable storage is an excellent storage option for these situations. Whatever your specific moving logistics are, portable storage can come to the rescue!
If you're packing for a long-distance move, you may have been considering using a storage container such as a PODS container, rather than renting a truck or hiring professional movers.
If you want to avoid the hassle of loading a rental truck and driving it to your new home, there's another moving option to consider: portable storage containers. In addition to offering storage services, portable container companies will deliver units directly to your new home, said Kyle Taylor, Vice President of the MI-BOX of San Diego.
Using a portable storage container to transport your belongings to a new home may sound appealing, but there are things you need to understand before you book a unit.
