Rental Trucks VS Moving Pods On Cost

Sep 16, 2008
Are you worried of controlling your moving budget? If you do not want to hire a moving company since you have a limited budget, you can always think of planning your move on your own. But this can be very tiresome. You need to take care of every thing from packing, loading, unloading as well as hiring a rental truck. If you want to save more, you can cut down the expenses of hiring a driver too. You can drive the truck across the country on your own. But if you find all this very stressful but want to save a few bucks too, you can go for hiring the moving PODS.

Moving PODS are basically portable on demand storage containers that will be left at your place when you need to pack your stuff. These moving PODS are left at your place at your demand as early as one month before you need to leave. One of the most important advantages of using the moving PODS is the convenience of packing they offer you. The containers are placed at the ground level. So it is very easy to pack your possessions in them. Your stuff is absolutely safe in the containers as you can lock them and only you can open them when you want.

The moving PODS are made as such to withstand rough weather as well as rough handling. Once you finish your packing, you may call the moving company and they will lift the moving PODS with the help of hydraulic lift so that the packing of your stuff within the PODS is not disturbed.

Moving PODS are best suited those who want to stop for sight seeing on the way to their destination. In case you want to take the delivery of the moving PODS later, they can be stored in the ware houses as long as you want. The only disadvantage with the moving PODS is that your society or the home owner may object to the PODS lying for a month outside blocking much of space. But if you have a good space of your own outside your house or office, moving PODS can be very useful for you.

For those who prefer using Rental trucks to shift, have an advantage of saving a bit more. You have the freedom to drive at your convenience when you have a rental truck. But it is really not easy to drive the truck across the country. In case there is a problem in the way, you will need to contact with the moving company so that they can send in another vehicle.

Truck rentals are good when you need to go for shorter distances but if you plan to move a good long distance, moving PODS will definitely give you peace of mind as well save upon your budget.
