Picture of Shiromi A.This post is part of our “Real People” series. Each post is written by a real person, not employed at HireAHelper, that actually used the service listed. These posts offer the inside scoop on the pros and cons of using moving equipment and services from moving container companies like PODS, U-Pack ReloCubes, and 1-800-Pack-Rat, or rental truck companies like Penske Truck Rental, Budget Moving Trucks, and U-Haul. Today’s post is from Shiromi A. of Seattle, WA.

My husband was retired military so we moved seven times in four years and I can tell you it never gets easier. You’d think we would have the moving thing down by now, but I find each move has its own set of unique challenges to overcome. When we decided to move from Portland, OR up to Seattle, WA to live near the water, we knew this would take some planning. We called around a few interstate moving companies but it was pricey. We didn’t want to rent a truck because you pay by the day and that time crunch can be stressful. My husband and I quickly came to the conclusion that either PODS or U-Pack ReloCubes would be our best bet.
