If you are planning a long distance move, you are not alone. Every year, thousands of Americans will move across the country, or state lines. Moving is one of the most stressful situations that people can deal with. Only a death of a loved one or a divorce is more stressful than moving. The good news is there are ways to reduce the amount of stress usually associated with moving, especially long distance moves. Long distance movers provide solutions like portable storage containers. Portable storage containers provide various benefits that many people may not even know. First off, long distance movers will ship a portable container to your driveway.
Having a portable container shipped to your driveway is convenient. You do not have to worry about going to pick up a moving truck or van, which takes time and gas money. Secondly, pods are easier to load than traditional moving trucks and vans. Portable containers sit on the ground, making it extremely easy to carry in heavy furniture and appliances. Moving trucks and vans, on the other hand, require a steep loading ramp that can be difficult to navigate while carrying heavy furniture or appliances. Even electric loading ramps are a hassle to use while moving.
In addition to shipping a portable container to your driveway, long distance movers will ship your container to your new address for a fee. Therefore, you can enjoy your flight to your new home without worrying about your possessions in the back of a truck or moving van. You can also avoid the hassle of driving across the country by having your vehicle shipped as well. Writing down a list of amenities that you expect to see from long distance movers will help you determine which company to hire. Furthermore, you should write down an inventory list of everything you are going to ship for insurance purposes.
