Most of the time, when we move we do so within the city that we live in already, but every so often, we have to look at a long distance move. This is especially true for those in the military. When you are faced with a long distance move, the logistics are sometimes hard to work out and while there are a great many reputable long distance movers that can help you a long distance move, none are more convenient than the use of pods.
In 2010, 6.7 million households in the United States moved and according to the statistics released by the U.S. Bureau of Census more than 10 percent of the U.S. population will move in a year. If you’re getting ready to plan for a move cross country or overseas, you should consider the use of moving pods. These pods are delivered to you and over time, you can pack your items and furniture up in them. When it comes time for the move, a moving company will come and ship the pods to your new location.
Being able to take the time to pack your pods is also important when moving long distance. Even though all moving companies over a variety of liability coverage policies to cover your possessions, it’s always a good idea to keep a detailed inventory of the items that are being moved. Once the move is completed the pods used are also helpful in acting as pods storage while you unpack.
For many people in the military, pods are the most efficient and cost effective way to tackle a cross country or overseas long distance move. Pods are extremely easy for movers to load onto a shipping vessel to haul across the ocean and they are easily loaded onto a truck to move to your location.
Regardless of how you take care of your move, whenever you used a moving service of any sort, it’s always a smart idea to pack a ‘Survival Box’ that contains all the needed essentials for you and your family. Rather than packing this box away, it’s one that you keep with you in case it takes a bit of time to get your possessions.
Pods are about the easiest, most efficient and cost effective way to tackle any move.
