Pod or portable on demand storage is a really clever way to transport your items, allowing you to store and move them easier when moving to or from Vancouver, BC or elsewhere in Canada.
Moving pods are very useful when you need to store your items for some time and move them later. A moving pod is relatively cheap and has enough volume of usable storage space. Pods are very helpful and with them you can make your move really easy if you know how to use them.
And where can you get a POD from? Most Vancouver moving companies provide moving pods on demand. Search on your preferred search engine for “Vancouver moving pods”, and you will find several Vancouver moving companies or storage container providers you can use.
You can rent a pod and have it at your disposal as long as you need. Because they are at the ground level, you can easily access them and store you items in them.
What to look for when renting a moving pod
Call those Vancouver moving companies for moving estimate and ask the questions below:
- Condition of the pod: how old is it, and how clean is it?
- How much does it weight. When you need to move it, some moving companies will add additional charges if it is heavy, so ask about that.
- Off course, how much does renting the pod cost per month and what is included in the price?
- How fast can they deliver the pod to you and what is the delivery fee?
- Do they offer any discounts for long term rentals?
One you have the pod or the portable storage container delivered, make sure there are no holes on the pod’s surface, to make sure your stuff doesn’t get wet if it rains outside.
Finally, ask for packing and moving supplies. Most Vancouver containerized moving companies will be able to offer you some affordable and high quality moving supplies that you will need to pack your belongings and store them in your pod.
If you need to move your pod, make sure that your Vancouver moving company sends a representative which will carefully inspect your pod before the move, so they can give you their advice on how to move your belongings safely.
