Moving to a new home can be both exciting and overwhelming.

Obtaining and utilizing a portable storage container is simple and affordable. A company like Cubeit will drop off the container at the location of your choice. Cubeit has offices around the country and can offer you services no matter what city you live in; visit their website for more information about renting PODS in Edmonton or anywhere else in Canada. Once you rent your portable storage unit, a nominal rental fee is charged. The unit remains at your location as long as you need it there, and when it is packed to your satisfaction you contact the company and have it moved to either your new location or their onsite storage facility. The storage unit is loaded on and off the truck using a horizontal motion that minimizes shifting of contents.
These storage containers are constructed out of steel, and the units are sturdy enough to safely hold your most valuable possessions. The units are clean and waterproof, and in most designs a roll up door allows ground level access to minimize the need for additional lifting or the ramps usually found on moving trucks.
There are other uses for these types of containers that go beyond typical moving-related needs. Many people are caught by surprise when it comes time to relocate, no matter what the reason is for their move. In order to market your home, it is often necessary to remove some household items to make the space home seem more open and inviting. A portable storage unit allows homeowners to safely store their possessions during the sales process, “staging” their homes conveniently without losing track of any of their furniture or other items.
Traditionally, families have been required to either have their possessions packed and ready for the arrival of the movers (a process that can be both stressful and costly) or pay to have strangers pack their homes for them one or two day prior to moving (something that can break a budget while also having the potential to go terribly wrong in many ways). Unlike the process of renting the services a traditional moving company that shows up on the day of the move, making use of a portable storage container allows families to pack up their household on their own schedule. This allows families time to sort and donate or discard items no longer needed. It also prevents strangers from rummaging through personal items.
A portable storage container offers the best of all possible worlds when it comes to self-storage and organization.
