Listen up long distance movers. This one goes out to you. Okay, you short distance movers can read this too. But I do not want any giggles. You do not know what it is like to have to move a long distance. You cannot just borrow the beat up pick up truck from your brother and make 30 trips. No, for long distance movers it is much more high stakes. You have a time crunch. And you have to fit everything into the truck all at once. One trip and that is it. If it does not fit, it gets left behind on the curb. Imagine to have to prioritize your life like that, short distance movers. You just do not know!
Tirade complete. But get this. There is this kind of new thing when it comes to moving, that will make your life so much better, the tears will be joy, not pure liquid frustration. They have these things called pods. I know. I bet that you have seen them without even realizing it. Think about when you drive by a storage facility, and you see all those big metal rectangles with the doors on one end. Those are essentially pods. Except pods are portable. You call the company and tell them the date that you want it, and then they just drive up and drop it off on that day.
The most beautiful part is now you get to take all the time in the world. Granted you pay for each day that you have it, but it is nowhere near the price of a moving truck, so you can take two days to get everything packed in securely if you need to. Then, once everything is packed good and tight, you call the company back up and tell them the eagle is ready for flight. They drive up with their truck, load the pod onto the back, and drive it off to your destination.
You do not have to deal with driving the giant, scary truck. They will drop the pod off at your new place, and you can leisurely drive there and then unload it in your own time. Take another two days to get everything out and in the right place. Then you call the company one last time and they come pick up the empty pod for you. It is that simple. That. Simple.
