Good afternoon and thanks for visiting Movers.com, I'd be glad to help with your question about mobile storage containers.
Mobile storage containers are a great alternative to stroage facilities because they are portable and many of the companies offer shipping as well which is what you're looking for.
There are other options in portable storage other than PODS if you no longer wish to use them. Here are some other companies that offer similar services.
- MyWay Mobile Storage
- ABF U-Pack
- Mobile Mini
- Door to Door
These companies all have online quote forms that you can fill out to receive a quote.
When packing your container be sure to take the necessary precautions to ensure that your items are not damaged while they are being stored. For efficient packing, use the same sized boxes or plastic bins to make stacking them in your container, that much easier. For more packing tips and guides click here.
We do however, recommend that you do a background check on any company you wish to hire. You should always read reviews about the company and their service and check for any complaints on the Better Business Bureau's website.
Movers.com has numerous reviews on hundreds of moving companies in and out of our network, you can search for and read reviews on our review page.
Thank you for visiting Movers.com and we wish you the best of luck with your move.
