PODS Long Distance Moving and Storage

Moving can be stressful. Moving long distances can be even more stressful, and moving long distances when your new home may not be ready yet can be the most stressful of all. From the beginning of a move until the last box has been unloaded and placed in your house, PODS has solutions that will help reduce the stress. Whether you just need long-distance moving services or you need long-distance storage, we can help.

How does PODS Long Distance Moving & Storage Work

PODS works differently from a traditional moving company. With PODS, we bring the container to you so that you can fill it at your leisure. Whether you need two hours, two days, or two weeks or more, you can take your time packing your belongings. If you need help loading, we can refer you to professional packers and loaders.

Once you've finished loading your container, we will come and pick it up. Our PODZILLA hydraulic lift system is designed to pick up your container and keep it level with the ground.

At that time, we can move your belongings straight to your new home, we can store them locally, or we can store them in your new city. Then, when you are ready for your belongings to be delivered, we can bring them to you. You'll have the opportunity to unpack at your leisure.

If you need to access your possessions while they are still in storage, just let us know. In most cases, you can access them in 24 to 48 hours.

For long distance moving and storage, PODS is a comprehensive solution. We do our best to make your move as convenient as possible.
