Moving Out of St. Louis with PODS
So let’s get into the nitty gritty of our move OUT of our St. Louis loft. (Yes, tears may have been shed.)
We decided to devote 2 days to report to “move-out duty.” That way we could have our PODS container delivered one day, and then fill ‘er up the next.
Since we live in downtown St. Louis, we were a little worried about where we would actually put the container. It’s not like we’re in a house where we could just plop it on the driveway. But after consulting with our building management, we found out we could put the container in our back alley, as long as it wasn’t blocking the street or the dumpsters.
PODS also assured us that it was a-okay with the City of St. Louis. In fact, they handle registering the device with the city. As long as you have it out there for less than a week…you’re not breaking any laws.
On a nice Friday afternoon, our PODS container was delivered. Here are some photos of the thing being lifted and moved onto the ground. Pretty crazy technology they have…
In the last few years of living together, Finn and I have acquired a lot of stuff. I mean a lot. Too much stuff if you ask me. Before we saw the container, we were a little unsure about cramming all of our belongings into it. In fact, we thought there was a 0% chance of us getting it all in that bad boy.
But, the moment we saw the PODS container and opened it up…we became a bit more optimistic.
So do you think we can fit all of this…
I’ll let you know next week when we chat more about the big move. I’ll also have some packing tips and tricks for ya…
