not moving We used Door to Door in 2005 for a cross nation relocation (East Coast to out here) and were pretty pleased. The shipment service works well and our stuff made it through extremely well. They had a number of computer system problems where they billed us excessive for the storage however remedied 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 move last year - moving options. We understood we would be momentarily living in a smaller sized place when we first moved out here, so we put some of our larger furnishings and other products in 2 pods in DC, had them shipped to California through City to City and have been saving them through Door to Door considering that then.
wound up costing about the very same to do this regarding just include it to our big relocation, but we conserved a great deal of trouble by just filling it as soon as, instead of putting it on the moving truck and then moving it to storage here. We have had a couple of annoying billing mixups - being method overbilled-- but they have actually constantly been corrected immediately when I call.
I 'd advise not putting anything in there you actually wish to get to up until you are settled. I would also advise purging definitely as much as you potentially can prior to you move. The less stuff, the less it costs to move or keep. We eliminated all furniture that didn't have significant monetary or personal worth, except for absolute basics (beds, sofa).
Pod individual I had best of luck with Door to Door Storage and their affiliate, City to City Moving (cheapest moving pods). Situations were different (I had to keep the contents of my mom's home while she was in a retirement home and the home was being offered; 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 unloading yourself, however! Debbie Pods sound like a great way to choose you. But a word of care: my friend just moved from Oakland recently, and she was planning to use a pod.
So instead of drive her stuff down to Hayward to fill in a pod, my buddy employed space in a truck and after that rented a storage system in the city she relocated to. I believe there are numerous companies in the pod business, so you might examine around anon We utilized" Pods" when we moved from Boston to Pleasant Hill early July and I should say I really liked the" Pods" in addition to the company we utilized (ABF U-Pack).
There is an actually good website/community that I discovered really valuable when I did research study on the" moving companies" - the webaddress is: http://www. movingscam.com/ Loads of recommendations on who to use (and NOT to utilize). All The Best:--RRB- Camilla I had a bad experience with pods, as they were alot more expensive than they said they would be.
As they do not provide you the charges ahead of time for getting your things back. I would recommend utilizing a storage facility. You can get things out that you may need along the method before your final relocate to Austin. Excellent Luck! KATY We utilized pods to move homes from Oakland to San Jose - with interim apartment or condo living between our houses.
The bins vanished from our lives for 3. 5 months and after that came back when we contacted us to have them provided to our new house in SanJose. We used www. pspickup.com, but there are lots of business that do this pod-moving and storage now. The one thing we found out was to find out which area your pods will be kept at - and what their theft/breakin history is.
Anyway, we had a very smooth relocation using the pods and I highly advise it. Use your linens and pillows to cushion your furnishings. we had nary a scratch on our items. Safe moving! delighted peas from pod moving I've used the pods and they're excellent! The moving business drops them off in front of your house.
This worked particularly well for me considering that I had one pod going to their storage facility and the other pod being delivered directly to a temporary address. There was no filling up a truck and then dumping a truck into a storage space and then reloading a truck when I was all set to retrieve my personal belongings.
I was able to evacuate the important things I would require while I remained in transistion and store the things I didn't require till I was ready to settle into my brand-new place. I packed and unloaded just when! I advise them! Best of luck with your relocation Candace For the person transferring to Texas who asked about PODS or other concepts for a few weeks' storage in the Berkeley location - to start with, I invite you to come to www.
I have been a moderator there for more than 3 years. The company that you are probably believing of is PODS at www. pods.com (moving options). It promotes widely on TELEVISION and offers fairly large containers that are good for people who have a large total up to shop and move or just wish to keep things in a container on their home while they remodel.
ABF U-Pack at www. upack.com uses smaller 6 foot x 7 foot x 8 foot containers called ReloCubes that hold up to 2000 pounds or the contents of a studio apartment or condo. These are much more cost-effective than PODS for people who have just a small shipment and need storage because ABF charges only around $100/month to save each cube at one of its terminals.
