What to look for when renting a moving pod
Before choosing your pod moving company, we recommend to read moving reviews from our web site of pod moving companies to get the idea which of them are reliable. Call for prices and ask about those things:
- Condition of the pod: how old is it, is it a clean one?
- How much does it weight. When you need to move it, some moving companies will add additional charges if it is too heavy, so ask about that, not the most important thing, but good to know.
- Off course, how much does it coast per month and what is included in the price.
- How fast can they deliver the pod to you and what is the cost?
- Rental time, any discounts for long term rent ?
One you have the pod or the portable storage container delivered, make sure there are no holes on the service – you need to make sure your stuff will not get wet if it rains outside.
Finally, ask for packing and moving supplies. Most pod moving companies will be able to offer to you affordable and high quality moving supplies that you will need to pack your belongings and store them in your pod. If you need to move your pod, make sure that the moving company will send a representative which will carefully inspect your pod before the move, so they can give their advice on how to move your belongings carefully.
