You've just closed on the sale of your home, but your new house in St. Clair isn't quite ready for you to move into yet. What to do? You might consider getting a POD or two!      

A POD is a movable storage unit that will be brought to your front door by truck, where it will be unloaded onto your driveway or any nearby area where you and your friends and family can load it with all your household items -- furniture, boxes of "stuff", lawn equipment, bikes, etc. Friends and family don't care to participate? No problem, the POD company will help you find local movers to load your POD for you.

Once the POD is loaded -- and you can take your time -- you lock it with your own lock and keep the key. Movers will never enter your POD! What they will do is come to your home when you let them know that it's all packed and ready to go and pick up your POD – carefully -- and haul it either to your new home, or if that isn't quite ready for you yet, they can store it in their warehouse.

Then, when your new home is ready, the POD will be moved to your location where it can be unloaded by your family, friends or local professional movers. POD companies not only offer the ability to move yourself, with almost no work, and store your belongings until you're ready to put them into your new home, but they can also store your belongings while you're remodeling your home or if disaster should strike your home and you need a place to put your possessions until the damage is repaired.

Most companies offer three sizes of PODS to fit different-sized loads. To keep your property from moving around inside the POD, grommets in the walls allow you to secure everything with bungee cords. The PODs are weather and water resistant to keep things dry, and to make it easier to load and unload, the POD is only a small step above the ground. 

So when you're ready to move to St. Clair, call the POD people to bring you a POD to load. Still need to find a new home? Give me, Scott Hickinbotham, a call at 636-629-3419 or contact me online today! We're ready to help you buy or sell in the St. Clair area.
