Saving You Time
To better assist with your residential or commercial move, The Mover Guys recommends containers and Portable on Demand Storage (PODS) as a solution for storing items and property before they can be moved into the new location. This is a great alternative for if you’re moving long-distance, or if there’s a waiting period before you take possession of your new home or office. Even for short-term or short-distance moves, PODS allow for flexibility in your packing and unpacking schedule and offer a place for storage as you transition.
While the benefits are numerous, loading a container (especially with bulky and heavy household items and furniture) is physically demanding work. Besides the strain on your back and patience, packing a container requires expertise to balance the load properly. Our experienced Edmonton movers can maximize your container space, saving you money and hassle at the same time!
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost for container loading and unloading services?
The cost of hiring The Mover Guys for container loading and unloading services mostly depends on the size of your move and the number of items you wish to store and how many containers that will require. Contact The Mover Guys for a free estimate on container loading and unloading services.
Are PODS waterproof?
Although PODS sturdy, steel-frame containers are designed to be weather-resistant to keep your items protected from the elements, if you need to store for more than a few weeks, we recommend keeping your container at a secure indoor PODS Storage Center. When you keep your storage unit at a PODS Storage Center, you further reduce the risk of water damage. For more information on preparing and packing items, see our tips and advice page.
What is the process for storing my property in PODS?
When you choose to store your items in a container such as PODS, the storage unit is brought to your property. With the conveniently placed container, Mover Guys’ professional moving team will load your storage unit and then it can either stay on your property or it can be sent to a secure PODS Storage Center. When you’re ready to receive your items, we will bring your storage container to your new home or commercial property and unload the contents there.
What is your cancellation policy?
At The Mover Guys, we understand that moving can be a stressful and overwhelming event for you, your family or business and for that reason, we have never had a cancellation fee. We know that moving days tend to include all types of unforeseen surprises and the last thing you need to worry about is extra fees and stress.
