A Moving Truck vs. Storage Pods: Which Option is Best for You

by Dusty Rhodes | Oct 03, 2018

You can finally celebrate now that the “sold” sign has been placed in your yard…or can you?  While selling your home is certainly one of the biggest hurdles to overcome when you are moving, the truth is it’s only one of the many challenges you will be facing.  Next on your list is packing, finding a moving company, transferring utilities and services, unpacking, and the list goes on.  With so much to do, it’s no wonder you want the easiest possible moving solution.  In addition to the physical task of moving, it can put quite a strain on your checkbook.  Budgeting for a move can be difficult to do, especially if you are considering renting a truck or hiring professional movers.  Luckily, there is another option: renting a storage pod.  If you want to avoid the hassle of loading a rental truck or dealing with the time crunch of a moving company, portable storage pods might be the solution for you.  Let’s take a look at how a moving truck compares with a storage pod.

 

A storage pod allows for greater flexibility during a move because you can transport your belongings at your own convenience.  When you rent a moving truck, you are paying for each day of the rental and you typically have to move everything in a day or two.  The same is true with professional movers.  They show up to your home on a specific day and move everything that same day.  This can put a lot of additional pressure on your plate when you are faced with a time crunch.  With a storage pod, you can take as much time as you need to load and unload.  You can also keep the storage container on your property for convenient temporary storage.  If you plan on making renovations to your new home, you can also arrange for your storage pod to be kept onsite at a storage facility.  Storage pods give you the flexibility to customize your move.

 

Storage pods also provide unmatched convenience…something that is priceless during a hectic move.  They are delivered right to your door and when you are packed and ready they can be transported directly to your new home.  You do not have to schedule a time to pick up a truck and deal with the hassle of driving a large vehicle. 

 

Another advantage to using storage pods is that you can load and unload your belongings at ground level.  Who enjoys making multiple trips up and down a steep ramp with heavy furniture and boxes?  Storage pods are built with the customer in mind because they sit at ground-level, which allows for easier and faster loading and unloading of your belongings. 

 

While renting a storage container might cost a little more than renting a truck, it is certainly more affordable than hiring professional movers.  Furthermore, it allows you to budget more accurately for your move.  Unlike professional movers who can only provide you with a quote, a storage pod company can provide you with exact pricing so you aren’t left guessing how much your move will cost.  In addition, you don’t have to worry about fuel charges, mileage charges, and gratuity. 

 

In the end it comes down to flexibility, convenience, and affordability and storage pods offer all three.  Moving can be an expensive, stressful, and time-consuming task and storage pods provide a smart solution that will make your move less tiring and more enjoyable.
