Simple Moves & Storage

How Moving Pods Work

Moving can be a stressful endeavour that requires careful planning, strong organization, and the help of others. Whether you are simply moving to a new home or moving to a new city, at Simple Moves, we want to make the process of moving as stress-free as possible. 

To help you have an easy move, we offer pods for moving and storage to bring your belongings across town or even across the country. To help you make an informed choice, read on to learn more about moving pods.

What are Moving Pods?

Moving pods are portable storage containers that allow you to ship your belongings wherever they need to go. These moving tools can make it easier to transport your items because you can fit most, if not all, of your possessions into one large container. 

This takes the worry out of additional transportation costs or the risk of losing items along the way. Our movers with our pods can take care of this for you. Using a moving pod can also be helpful to store your items all together before moving, as the pods are excellent storage containers.

Rent a Pod by Planning Your Move

Moving can be a stressful experience, so the more organized your details are, the smoother the process should go. The first step in renting a moving pod would be to plan out your move. The details you will want to list are:

  • The date(s) you are planning to move.
  • The address of where you are moving.
  • How long you’ll need the pod for.
  • Your budget for how much the moving pods are to rent.
  • What kinds of items you’ll be shipping (i.e. boxes only or large furniture).
  • If you’ll need help with loading the moving pod.

When you have these details figured out, your next steps are to get a quote and book a time to get the pod, load it up, and have it shipped (or stored for the time being, if needed).

Different Container Sizes for Different Needs

The great thing about moving pods is that they come in different sizes to fit personal moving needs. If you’re doing a small move with a handful of boxes that don’t quite fit into the back of your car, you can save time, money, and the environment by renting a small moving pod.

If you’ve got a larger family with a full 2-storey house full of furniture that needs moving, we can easily accommodate this need. At Simple Moves, we’ve got the variety you may need to make your move as easy as can be.

The Best Option for Packing and Loading Assistance

Truly, the best way to go about packing and loading your moving pod is to hire professional movers. If an untrained person tries to move and load a heavy item, they can damage the item itself or damage the surroundings where the items are being carried. If you are not trained and try to do it yourself, you risk potentially serious bodily injury.
