The Best of Fall

A new season is officially here.  It means cooler weather, football season and fun holidays like Thanksgiving and Halloween. 

If you are a Gamecock fan (or even if you aren’t) and are at a game this year – be sure to stop by Cocky’s POD at the stadium.  It’s at the Old Farmer’s Market tailgate area where they have a kids area – pretty cool!


The State Fair is also around the corner – check out all the PODS there too!

Thinking about decorating but need some new ideas? Here are a few easy ways to spruce up around the house:

- Paint Pumpkins: Instead of carving them and making a mess, take paint to the outside to create colorful designs.  These can be placed around your house or outside your front door for a fun seasonal look

- Bring out the blankets: Have throws that you have tucked away in a closet? Layer them on your furniture to cozy up the atmosphere.  Okay, it doesn’t get THAT cold around here, but cold enough for a soft throw at night inviting you to snuggle up!

- Create an inviting door front that sreams fall! Mums are readily available in the fall and can add a burst of fall color to your doorstep.  Tie in a similar colored fall wreath for added dimension.

- Utilize outdoor space: If you have an outdoor deck or patio, don’t neglect it during this beautiful time of year.  Here in Columbia, fall means we don’t have to battle mosquitos as fiercely and the humidity has curbed from the stifle of summer.  Take advantage of this time, don’t neglect the outdoor space.

Here are some FAQs you might have been wondering about:

How is a PODS container moved?

The PODS delivery truck is equipped with a patented hydraulic lift system, PODZILLA, designed to keep your belongings level and reduce the shifting of your contents while the container is loaded onto and off the truck. It securely transports the PODS container to and from your location.


How long do I have to load or unload the container?

PODS allows you to pack your PODS container at your leisure. There are no deadlines; you move when you are ready.


Do you pick up and deliver on weekends?

We are open Monday through Saturday – closed on Sundays.  We recognize the need to offer loading and unloading flexibility; thus, we don’t limit the time a PODS container can stay on your property.


How does PODS prevent my contents from being damaged during the move?

Our professional drivers are experts at transporting our PODS containers. The use of PODZILLA minimizes the possibility of shifting or damage while the container is loaded onto and off the truck. PODS also offers a variety of packing supplies and a comprehensive content-protection program.


How much clearance do I need to place a container at my house or apartment?

To place a PODS container on your property, we need a clearance of 12 feet in width and 15 feet in height with no steep inclines, low branches, or wires.


How do I find out about my local regulations?

PODS will inform you of any regulation that we are aware of. If we don’t have information for your area, a quick Internet search of your city’s website should provide you with the needed information.


Do I have to be there when you deliver?

No, although we recommend that someone be present, if possible. Our deliveries and pickups may occur at any time after 7 a.m. local time. The customer is responsible for ensuring that there is adequate clearance and accessibility for the desired location of the container.  If you don’t plan to be there, we just ask you are available by telephone in case our delivery specialists have any questions about where you’d like your PODS container placed
