Jana Rawlinson moves with PODS®
Top Australian athlete and Gold Medal winner, Jana Rawlinson (née Pittman) talks about her recent moving experience using PODS®.
Moving is never fun but I was really dreading the thought of moving from Sydney to Canberra, especially with a 15 month old to chase after. But with PODS® managing my move, it couldn’t have been easier. Their experienced staff were always friendly and helpful, working with us to make the whole experience as painless as possible.
It’s amazing, PODS® literally deliver a container right to your front door. Within 15 minutes, the driver had simply and safely lowered the container on to our driveway, exactly where we wanted it. We couldn’t believe how manoeuvrable their system was, it was actually great fun to watch!
I loved the idea that the container doesn’t tip when it’s loaded on the truck, so our valuables were safe. And it was so easy and quick to load since the container didn’t need a ramp and sat right in our driveway – keeping everything doubly safe at all times.
I took advantage of their great ProPack service, where PODS® professional packing partners takes care of all the work, physically packing up our belongings, loading the container and then unloading at the other end. These guys were polite and super efficient – everything was carefully packed, labelled and loaded in no time. And nothing missing or broken at the other end.
One of the advantages moving interstate with PODS® is that our belongings are dispatched to the next location immediately – in fact, I think they beat us to Canberra! With other removalists I’ve had to wait while they fill the rest of the shipping container, or get a spot on the train. With PODS®, your stuff isn’t mixed up with other peoples or constantly handled or reloaded. And better still, PODS® can store your belongings during the moving process. They simply take your container straight to one of their secure Storage Centres until you’re ready for it.
I can’t imagine ever moving again without PODS® – and will be recommending them to all my family and friends.
