When it comes to moving, there are different services you can consider and a moving company is not the only option. Portable storage containers are very popular because they are an effective solution when it comes to relocating or storing your belongings.
Portable storage units are cost-effective, so you won’t have to empty out your wallet. It is an option that is budget-friendly and renting a container for a short period of time is a lot more affordable than hiring a professional moving company. You will also have a lot of flexibility with this option because you will get to decide the day and time of the arrival of the unit and can schedule it based on the timeline of your move.
There are different types of portable storage containers and if this is an option you are considering, it is worth learning about them and their differences so that you can select the one that is best for you. Portable on demand storage, known as PODS, and containers on wheels storage, known as COWS, are the two main types of portable storage containers and your needs will help you determine the one that is more suitable for you.
PODS are available in three different sizes and the largest container can be used for long-distance moves. If you will be relocating locally, you can choose any of the three sizes based on your needs and depending on the size that you choose, it can hold a ton of content, including the belongings of a mid-sized apartment or a large house. They can hold anywhere from one to four rooms of furniture.
COWS is another option and provides portable storage containers for both home and business owners. They offer metal storage units that are available for short and long distance moves. They can hold the contents of a small apartment and will accommodate items of up to three rooms.
Both options are great and very practical, so you need to focus on their differences in order to select the one that is best for you. PODS are available in multiple locations and provide customers with different size options; however, they are more expensive and generally take longer to arrive. COWS are more affordable and you can customize the level of service you need. This means you can choose a hybrid option or a full-service one, so you will have more options. If you are working with a small budget, COWS are a better option. Both PODS and COWS are very sturdy and can withstand all types of weather, so they can be used during any season. PODS generally have a monthly payment requirement, whereas COWS offer flexible contracts.
