Migrating snowbirds find a welcome home with PODS®

Snowbird (noun) is defined by Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary as “one who travels to warm climates for the winter.”

Many snowbirds today maintain residences in two or more different cities or states, traveling throughout the year to warmer climates. If I was a snowbird (but alas, I am not), I would want to bring lots of things with me for the winter – stuff that won’t fit in a suitcase or my mid-size SUV, which I also want to bring with me.

How can I bring my car, all my stuff, pets, furniture, golf clubs and big umbrella? There are evidently 3 choices: Call a traditional moving company ($$$$$), rent a truck and drive the entire route ($$$$) or I can call PODS® ($$). Located in 48 U.S. states across the country I know there is a PODS franchise that can deliver directly to where I’m going to roost for the winter and I won’t have to spend all of my green to do it.

Quick Tips for an Organized Garage

As life progresses we acquire items of all shapes and sizes. Often, when these items outlast their usefulness, they up in the garage. A messy garage can create frustration and potential hazards.

Now is the perfect time to clear the clutter in preparation of warmer weather and summer fun – a time when surfboards, swim gear and camping equipment are put to use! Organizing a garage can be done in stages, but first things first: Make a plan!

1. Divide the garage into zones: storage, charity, garage sale and trash. To help streamline the process and keep items safe during the process, call PODS® to deliver a PODS® container right to your garage door.

2. Loading the PODS® container at ground level is easy, so work at your own pace. The garage didn’t become cluttered in one day so don’t expect reorganization to take place in one day, either.

3. Consider using garage organization systems to organize tools, sporting equipment, lawn and gardening tools.

4. Once the garage is organized, set ground rules for ongoing maintenance such as keeping the parking area clear and putting tools and sporting equipment back in assigned places after use.

A garage free from clutter offers a setting for weekend or school projects with the kids and an opportunity to bond with family and friends.

Moving and storing with PODS®  is more convenient and less stressful than other alternatives. Some of our customers prefer to pack, load and unload their own belongings, but you don’t need to do everything yourself.

PODS wants your moving and storage experience to be the very best. Whether you want to pack and load the easy stuff, and let the professionals do the rest, is entirely up to you. The choice is yours. Once your things are properly packed and ready for pick up, you lock the PODS® container and keep the only key.

We also sell moving kits and supplies in a variety of packages. PODS can deliver these items with your PODS® container or send to you in advance. Contact us to place your order. It’s that simple!

Deliver. Pack. Store. Move!

We deliver an empty PODS® container at your convenience. You fill the container your way, at your pace, and call us when you’re ready for pick-up.
