Did you know that people in the Northeast move more regionally than folks in the West? For whatever reason, it appears that more residents in the western United States are happier right where they are than their northeastern counterparts. Maybe it’s for different jobs, or perhaps it’s in search of better weather, but Americans are once again become more mobile for the first time since the “Great Recession” of 2007.
The busiest season for moving companies exists between the months of June and September. This has prompted companies to dub these months the “moving season.” Although U.S. migration rate has been steadily decreasing since the mid-1980s, it hit its low point in 2009. Since 2009, however, the moving rate has rebounded from under 10% to nearly 12%.
Since nearly half of all Americans who relocate do so for job-related reasons, the increase in migration is great news; but this does not mean that moving is any less stressful or inconvenient. However, one advantage that today’s movers have over movers of other eras is storage and moving pods. Portable pods storage units can reduce the stress and inconvenience of your move by helping your move to be better organized and more efficient.
Storage and moving pods usually come in sizes 10’x10′ or 10’x15′. The smaller size is perfect for moving one to two rooms, and the larger size can accommodate up to four rooms. Since portable storage units are made from steel and have lockable doors, customers can rest assured that their belongings are safe and secure for the long haul.
When movers order pods storage units, they can order their pods in advance of their moves, and take their time sort, pack, and load their possessions into their pods. By the time the day of the move arrives, their personal effects will already be packed and loaded, and the moving company can load the pod on a flatbed truck and transport it to destination.
Pods storage units may be simple, but they can be a considerable help to movers who want to experience better organized and less stressful moves. The bottom line is moving pods can make any move feel less convenient, and allow customers to focus on the excitement that lies ahead.
