Some belongings just don't belong in a home, such as scarecrows or the blacksmith apprentice you'll "get around" to teaching about smelting. Pack away inconveniences with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $150 toward moving and storage services from PODS Moving and Storage, located in Hauppauge, Calverton, and Melville.
PODS securely carts, caches, and conveys furniture, clothing, and other personal possessions using its mobile PODS containers. To accommodate each client's needs, the company will deliver a container (available in three sizes) to locations throughout the greater Long Island area, which storage seekers can then leisurely fill with boxes, knickknacks, and Christmas presents for nosy children. Once full, containers can be held at a local PODS storage center, left on site in driveways, or delivered to a new destination for unpacking. Moving fees start around $425 and vary according to the container size, the distance and duration of the move, and whether storage is required (up to one month of complimentary storage is included at either end of the trip). Fees also vary daily according to supply and demand, much like airplane tickets, car rentals, and Jumbotron marriage proposals.
Rates vary depending on the size of the container, how customers plan to use it, and transportation requirements. When held at a secure PODS storage center, prices generally range from $129.99 per month for 7-foot or 12-foot containers to $174.99 for 16-foot containers, with additional charges for both delivery ($49.99–$89.99) and pickup ($49.99–$89.99). Those planning to store the container at their house as an industrial addition to art-deco lawn arrangements should expect rental prices ranging from $109.99 to $154.99, with additional charges for both delivery ($59.99–$89.99) and pickup ($59.99–$89.99). Customers planning to use a container to move from one home to another will pay the at-home rental rate as well as a moving price determined by distance.
