In 2010 alone, 6.7 million Americans took to the road and moved their family and their many belongings accrued over the years; and while some people deal with the hustle and bustle of moving themselves, some lucky people that choose to use any of the portable storage containers options, saved themselves both time and money by doing so. There is also an added bonus of a package deal discounts that can be offered by many companies if choose to use as a self storage unit as well. Portable storage containers or portable storage units are another option for people that either find themselves needing to move and possibly store things, people that are building a house and need to wait and bring all their things in, and storage options that can be moved to virtually anywhere. Portable storage containers, such as moving pods, are less known alternative during peak “moving season”, when rates with other moving companies are inflated, from July through December.
With the hustle and bustle of moving things can get lost, so no matter if you are using a long distance moving company or a portable storage unit, for your moving and storage needs, you should always make sure that you have an itemized list of what you are packing and keep your valuable items with you, not sending them ahead to meet you when you arrive, even with liability insurance that all moving companies must have, they cannot guarantee that they can replace things that are one of a kind.
