iCan VS PODS® Portable Storage And Moving Units


image of a house with an iCan storage portable storage container outsideBeautiful Rockland County, NY. Home of the Rockland Boulders Can-Am Baseball team, half of the Tappan Zee Bridge (we are old school), and magnificent Harriman State Park. We love Rockland; it’s the home of our portable storage container business and our own home as well. If you’re moving to Rockland, welcome! If you want to rent a pod® and are considering moving pods® or storage pods® to help you with your move, we would recommend our portable storage units as a perfect solution for all your needs – and may we suggest ditching the cardboard moving boxes and using iBins (also known as crates, reusable moving boxes, bins, totes), our sturdy plastic rent-able bins for moving.

One of the things we love about Rockland is our large lot sizes and wide driveways, which means there’s plenty of room for an iCan mobile storage containers (sometimes we’ll see a POD® on someone’s driveway and think, “Guys! Think how much prettier an iCan would look!”) But even if you live in one of our beautiful condo developments, you can still use an iCan as long as your Homeowner’s Association agrees, because thanks to our iBot system, we can put iCan containers for storage in your parking lot spot. And ask our Nyack clients how we’ve manoeuvred down the hill to the waterfront or our Piermont folks about how we’ve found all the work-arounds to avoid the hairpin turn on Ash Street.

Climate Controlled Portable Storage Units

Whilst a regular container for storage is sufficient in most cases, on the rare occasion you may feel more comfortable placing your items in a climate controlled storage unit. Items such as valuable antiques or musical instruments will be protected in our climate regulated storage containers, giving you total peace of mind.

Store iCan at Home or at Our Warehouse

Even if you don’t have room (or permission) to keep an iCan container for storage at your house, we can easily bring it back to our warehouse – that’s the portable part of our portable storage units. It still saves you the trouble when you decide to rent a POD® or renting a U-Haul®, packing it up, driving it to a self-storage facility, unloading the U-Haul®, returning the U-Haul®, and then doing it all again in reverse when you’re ready to welcome back your stuff. Best of all, since our warehouse is located in Congers, NY, delivery anywhere in Rockland County will be at our standard base delivery rate (which covers 25 miles from our warehouse). This makes it a better option than renting a POD® or using U-Haul® services.
