PODS® is One Smooth Operator

Pretty much anything that disrupts a household in a major inconvenient way is not pleasant. Where we usually have a routine to getting kids ready for school or ourselves ready for work, the flow is redirected, and not in a good way.

I don’t like not being without my belongings for a long period of time, but when a kitchen fire broke out (I promise it was not my cooking that did it!) we were forced to enlist contractors for a remodel. Along with walls and flooring, our furniture and personal belongings needed to be removed from the downstairs living areas.

There was no place to store all of this stuff in the garage so we called PODS.  We had a 12-foot storage container delivered to our home, which we promptly loaded so construction could commence. A few days later the container was picked up and taken to the PODS® storage center about 15 miles away.

A month later, we had a new kitchen. Our storage container was re-delivered with all of our furniture still tucked inside just as we packed it. Thanks to PODS patented lift called PODZILLA® not one thing shifted or toppled over to or from each destination.

PODS is one smooth operator, but not in a Barry White kind of way.

What Not To To with Your Luxury Sedan

Ok, is it just me, or is it a little strange to see a luxury sedan pulling a moving trailer filled to the brink, riding super low on the back axel springs.

It happened, and it took a moment for my brain to comprehend this ghastly sight. Then I took a picture, because, well – I was there!

At the max, this was a 6-cylinder engine pulling this monstrosity of a trailer, changing lanes right smack in front of me. A tall oak television cabinet was balanced between two mattresses, lamps toppled back and forth outside the rails and there was an overstuffed chair for grandpa to take a nap in.

Yeah. I rolled my eyes. Did you think I wouldn’t?

Two words: PODS® container.

That is all.

Oh Please! Allow PODS® to do the Heavy Lifting for You

I am not macho. I avoid heavy lifting whenever I can. I might break a nail or something. My teenage son has no problem telling me he can do it, so I let him.

PODS® is much the same, providing delivery and pick-up of a really big box (PODS® storage container) and taking all the weight of a relocation, renovation, remodel or as extra storage.

Recently, a PODS® container was delivered to our driveway as we set out to completely remodel our downstairs living areas. At ground level, my strong uncles removed heavy furniture and appliances into the open storage container and my teenager happily carried boxes until he was bored. Then, I took over with the light stuff.

No one was rushed since we can have the PODS® container onsite for as long as we want. In this case, however, I was unable to keep it at my home, so PODS picked it up a week later and transported it back to itsStorageCenter just a few miles away for short-term storage.

PODS moves, stores and delivers with three sizes of PODS® containers to fit the contents of your home. The largest, 12×16-feet, will transport an average 3-bedroom home.
