If you are relocating from a large house to a small apartment, and as a result are being forced to downsize, you are going to need both moving and storage solutions in order to complete the process. Normally, you would probably associate moving and storage concepts with two different facilities and actions, but fortunately, there is a way for you to combine the two into one easy to utilize notion. To satisfy the needs of both moving and storage, you can rent a portable pod that can be dropped off at your old location to be loaded. During the moving portion of your process, you will fill your pod to the brim and then have it shipped off to the new apartment. After unloading and sorting has commenced, you can simply reload the pod with whatever is left and have it shipped off for storage.
