The Benefits of PODS When Carrying Out House Renovations

Below are just some of the possible problems you may come up against whilst you are undertaking building work or carrying out house renovations on your home. Getting dust all over your furniture even when covered with sheeting

  • Not having enough room to “swing a cat” as they say
  • Tripping over everything that’s in the way
  • Faraway journeys to distant lands (well storage facilities anyway) when you need to get something or store something else.

It would likely be just as frustrating for any builders or contractors that are undertaking the work as it could cause them delays if contents are having to be moved or shifted around from room to room.

PODS v Shipping Containers: Mercedes Benz

We’re happy to announce that we’ve recently delivered three of our PODS Containers to Mercedes Benz to provide them with on-site storage! After looking at a shipping container option they soon decided that the dark, damp, ugly nature of shipping containers didn’t coincide with their state of the art dealership. After having a chat with the guys at Mercedes they decided PODS would provide the perfect solution!
