stagnating We utilized Door to Door in 2005 for a cross country move (East Coast to out here) and were quite satisfied. The shipment service works well and our stuff survived really well. They had a couple of computer concerns where they billed us too much for the storage however fixed it immedidately when we called.
Did Door to Door August 2006 We used the City to City/Door to Door choice for our cross country relocation last year - cross country moving pods. We understood we would be briefly living in a smaller sized place when we first moved out here, so we put a few of our larger furnishings and other products in 2 pods in DC, had them shipped to California through City to City and have been keeping them through Door to Door ever since.
wound up costing about the same to do this as to just include it to our big move, however we saved a great deal of hassle by simply loading it once, instead of putting it on the moving truck and then moving it to storage here. We have had a couple of irritating billing mixups - being method overbilled-- however they have actually always been straightened right away when I call.
I 'd recommend not putting anything in there you actually wish to get to up until you are settled. I would also advise purging absolutely as much as you possibly can prior to you move. The less stuff, the less it costs to move or keep. We got rid of all furniture that didn't have considerable financial or individual worth, other than for absolute basics (beds, couch).
Pod person I had best of luck with Door to Door Storage and their affiliate, City to City Moving (best moving pods). Situations were various (I had to store the contents of my mom's house while she was in a retirement home and your home was being sold; we weren't sure if she was going to make it and need her personal belongings or not.
But I was really pleased with both the storage and the moving. You do need to be prepared to do the packaging and unpacking yourself, nevertheless! Debbie Pods seem like an excellent way to opt for you. However a word of care: my good friend just moved from Oakland recently, and she was preparing to utilize a pod.
So instead of drive her stuff down to Hayward to fill in a pod, my buddy hired area in a truck and then leased a storage unit in the city she relocated to. I believe there are several companies in the pod business, so you might check around anon We utilized" Pods" when we moved from Boston to Pleasant Hill early July and I need to say I really liked the" Pods" as well as the company we utilized (ABF U-Pack).
There is a truly great website/community that I found truly valuable when I did research study on the" moving companies" - the webaddress is: http://www. movingscam.com/ Lots of advice on who to use (and NOT to use). Good Luck:--RRB- Camilla I had a disappointment with pods, as they were alot more expensive than they said they would be.
As they do not give you the charges ahead of time for getting your stuff back. I would recommend using a storage center. You can get things out that you might require along the method prior to your last relocate to Austin. All the best! KATY We utilized pods to move houses from Oakland to San Jose - with interim apartment living between our houses.
The bins disappeared from our lives for 3. 5 months and then came back when we contacted us to have them delivered to our new house in SanJose. We utilized www. pspickup.com, however there are great deals of business that do this pod-moving and storage now. The one thing we learned was to learn which location your pods will be kept at - and what their theft/breakin history is.
Anyway, we had a very smooth move utilizing the pods and I highly suggest it. Use your linens and pillows to cushion your furniture. we had nary a scratch on our items. Safe moving! delighted peas from pod moving I have actually used the pods and they're terrific! The moving company drops them off in front of your home.
This worked especially well for me since I had one pod going to their storage center and the other pod being delivered straight to a temporary address. There was no filling up a truck and after that dumping a truck into a storage space and then reloading a truck when I was all set to obtain my possessions.
I had the ability to load up the important things I would need while I was in transistion and store the stuff I didn't require up until I was ready to settle into my new place. I packed and unloaded only as soon as! I suggest them! All the best with your move Candace For the individual relocating to Texas who asked about PODS or other ideas for a couple of weeks' storage in the Berkeley location - first off, I welcome you to come to www.
I have been a moderator there for more than three years. The business that you are most likely believing of is PODS at www. pods.com (container moving companies). It promotes commonly on TELEVISION and offers fairly big containers that benefit individuals who have a big total up to shop and relocation or simply desire to keep things in a container on their property while they remodel.
ABF U-Pack at www. upack.com offers smaller sized 6 foot x 7 foot x 8 foot containers called ReloCubes that hold up to 2000 pounds or the contents of a studio apartment. These are much more economical than PODS for people who have just a little shipment and require storage since ABF charges just around $100/month to store each cube at one of its terminals.
