With traditional moving and storage situations you typically have to spend time finding a local storage facility that have units available in your recommended size category, hire a full service moving company to load your belongings and transport them to the storage location and unload. The process can be grueling and last all day and the cost can range from $900 to $1200 depending on the hired company.

With PODS the hassle of choosing the right storage is eliminated and PODS usually has a list of recommended professional moving helpers to load your storage container right in your driveway. The process of finding the best moving and storage is cut in half and cost range from $500 to $800 depending on the level of service.

Reasons to use PODS:

  • New home remodel or renovation (On-Site storage)
  • Moving and Storage while you transition

  • No need to load and unload multiple times
  • Stress free moving experience

Choosing PODS is not only the best option for moving and storage it is the most cost effective. Not sure where to start or if PODS is a good solution for you. Hiring a Moving Coordinator can help ease your mind and consultations are free. Find a local moving helper provider in your area  or ask PODS for recommendations!

Saving Big On Your Big Move

Moving can be a costly process…

You have to spend time hunting down the best moving companies in the area, calling and getting cost estimates, and your typical moving company apply truck and fuel fees on top of state mandated travel charges. Once you find a company that fits your budget you have to go through the hassle of upfront cost like deposits and service fees, overall making the experience tedious and stressful.

Let me take the time to introduce you to HireAHelper where moving is simplified and more cost effective. The concept allows you to have complete control over every aspect of your move and save you money, headaches and friendships.

First, find your local dealer and rent a truck (What size truck do I need?) or mobile storage container (Help me with container options) …most moving companies hike up the cost to use their trucks and over charge for travel and refueling fees, which in reality is not helping anyone

After you have your truck all squared away, it’s time to hire your local loading and unloading help. HireAHelper provides you with quality professional helpers that offer straightforward hourly rates with no extra or hidden fees and the ability from one page to compare, book, and pay for your service.

Now you’re all moved without a finger lifted, all you have done is drive… no back aches from fighting with that heavy oversized couch, your friends don’t despise you for dragging them through the process and your wallet hardly feels lighter because you saved almost 50 percent on moving cost.

Full service moving is a bit overrated and usually reserved for the convenience of having someone pack, load, drive, and unload for you …shopping at the convenient store is always more expensive. If saving money is important to you check out HireAHelper to compare mover rates near you today!

Hiring the Right Team

Hiring the Right Team

Do you need to get an Estimate?

You would not put a new roof on your home without comparing estimates, you should apply the same concept in moving, where estimates are just as important.

You want to make sure your estimator does a thorough walk through of your home to determine the bulk of your move. When you are walking through with the estimator ensure you point out all storage spaces, cupboards, garages and or crawl spaces and that inventory of all your belongings are noted.

 

Things an Estimator will answer when determining your price?

  • How many man will it take to move your belongings?
  • Best Transportation options to complete your move?
  • Will there be any Assembly or Dis-assembly of any furniture?
  • Are there any stairs elevators or long walk ways
  • Are there any specialty items involved in your move…? (Pianos, pool tables, safes etc…)

A reputable moving company will take inventory of all your belongings. An estimator who performs a quick walk-through without noting what you plan to move is going to be off the mark. A good estimator will ask questions about what you plan to take from your current house to your next home, be prepared to tell the estimator which items you don’t want on the truck—the items you plan to give away, donate to a charity, sell in a yard sale, or leave behind for the new owners.

Should you pay a deposit before your move?

Some moving companies will ask for a deposit before moving. Moving companies that require deposits usually do so to avoid customer cancellations, in which companies like to assess a penalty and ensure they are the company you go with. Deposits are typically associated with booking/administration fees and are normally built into the price which are usually non-refundable. If you decide to pay a deposit to your movers it should not exceed a small portion of your estimated cost. and should never be an extra cost

When you do pay make sure you use a credit card or a traceable form of payment to protect you from fraudulent activity. The final cost of the move should be calculated and payed for only at the conclusion of your move never prepay for a move.
