Moving can be a stressful time for anyone, especially when you need to make a long distance move, have a family or pets, or must maintain a schedule for work and school purposes. There are many options, both for the short and long distance movers, but the first thing to do before even thinking about hiring movers is to make a list of things that need to be done. You need to pack your items, decide on a date, find a moving company that fits your schedule and budget, and figure out a billion other things before making any substantial selections.
One of the most underutilized moving and storage opportunities is pods. Pods are also called portable storage units (which doesn’t make it an acronym, unfortunately), and they can be kept on one’s current or future property, used in the actual moving process, or stored in a warehouse if the movers offer that option. They help you and your family to stay organized, reduce clutter, and store items until they can afford or find time to set up house. This option gives you a lot more flexibility, especially if you have more than six months before the move. You can pack and label at a leisurely pace, keeping a record of where items are located. Your packing can also be organized based on necessity. For example, boxes of your mementos and keepsakes can be buried under boxes of clothing, dishes, and other items that are needed for daily life.
