When it comes to portable storage units, the number of options available in this field is greater than ever before. Self storage in general has grown quite a bit as an industry over the past decade or so, and has become a large segment of the moving and storage industry in general. Many long distance moving companies use portable storage units nowadays due to their economy and ease of use, so it does pay to look into portable storage containers for yourself if a long distance move is on the near horizon for you.

Many users of portable storage units are trying to save some money, so it does pay to know how the industry works. First, note that June through September are the most expensive times to move due to high demand, so planning your move to fall outside this range of time is often a great way to save some cash right off the bat. Make a list of all items being moved via your portable storage units, and keep a box of essentials that will be used as soon as you move in, such as your coffee maker and cell phone charger, within easy reach. Sell or donate all of the unnecessary items in your home in order to minimize the charges associated with your portable storage units in general, and using an online calculator can really illustrate the difference between a cluttered and uncluttered home quite well, whether you opt for moving pods or not.
