The Pew Research Center reports that 63% of United States citizens have moved away from the town in which they grew up. Whether you are about to embark on a military move, you have to relocate due to a job promotion, you need to be closer to relatives, or you are simply ready for a change in better housing, moving is often part of transitions that we all need to make.
If you are about to make this life change, you may want to contact moving pods companies about using portable storage units. Particularly if you do not have a large amount of personal items to move, you may want to bypass a large truck as an option and instead use a smaller vehicle to transport pods storage. This may also give you more freedom to pack your items in the way you see fit and even reorganize things during the trip. You may even have greater flexibility to complete your trip in the time period that best suits your itinerary.
Even when using storage moving pods, it’s wise to designate one of your boxes as the “Survival Box,” in which you pack the items you will absolutely need on the first day in your new home–the day’s clothes, a cellphone charger, blankets, and maybe even a coffeemaker. You can then pack this box last so that it is the first one you access when you unpack.
Perhaps you currently rent an apartment, and like a third of all renters annually,you find that it is time for a change of pace. Or maybe you live in the western part of the country, and another city seems more appealing to you at this time (those who live in the Northeast are the least inclined to relocate). In any case, storage moving pods may be the most logical choice for an efficient and stress-free move.
