PODS’ Container Vs. Storage Facility: Which is Best for Your Move?
By dm support

At some point, while planning a move, many people discover they will need storage space for some or all their items. In many cases, this happens because the destination location is not quite ready to house all your goods.

Whatever the case, movers have more options than ever. Both storage containers and storage facilities or space offer ways to store your belongings until you need them. Whether you are just moving across town or getting ready to move across the country, there are storage options that will work for you. Here’s a look at which one to choose for long-term storage needs.

Why People Choose PODS’ Containers

Storage containers work best for short-term storage. That’s because they are usually parked right on the driveway, making them an eyesore and an obstacle if they stay there for very long (some companies will come and pick up the storage unit and keep it stored for you, but there are costs associated with that).

But if you know you will only need storage for a short amount of time, they can offer a less-expensive choice for storage of your items. They work great for small moves, quick-turnarounds and getting ready for a garage or estate sale.

Why People Choose Storage Facilities

There are many advantages to using a moving and storage facility. Here are some of the most frequent reasons people will choose storage over a storage container.

More Space

At some point, you must ask yourself: How long do I want a PODS’ unit sitting in my driveway? Self-storage keeps your items stored safely away from your home. It also offers much more space, so you can rent as many units as needed for your items.

Security

Storage offers more security than having your items sitting on your driveway. In the case of Good Greek Moving & Storage, storage units are monitored 24/7 with CCTV. Each unit also uses a computer system to log your items.

You Have Fragile Pieces

You will feel more secure having your items locked away in a storage facility where they are safe and won’t get damaged if, for example, there is a storm with high winds.

Flexibility and Convenience

A storage facility offers much more convenience than a PODS’ container. You can choose from a variety of sizes that will best suit your needs and your budget. You also are set up to have long-term storage in case you need it. Many people who think they will only need storage for a few weeks are surprised to find that they may actually need storage for a few months. Having a storage facility handles that issue.

In most cases, a storage facility is the best choice, especially for long-term storage needs. The variety of choices, flexibility, and security make it a great combination for those who are moving.
