MODESTO – PODS of Modesto recently formed a new business partnership with the National Association of Professional Organizers that allows PODS to work closely with the association’s professional organizers across the country.
“It makes perfect sense for PODS to team up with NAPO,” said Joel Courage, PODS of Modesto manager. “PODS provides our customers with flexible moving and storage options and then NAPO brings more order and efficiency to their lives.”
PODS, a leader in the moving and storage industry, currently provides service to customers in 48 U.S. states, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. The company is nearing its 2 millionth PODS container delivery milestone.
NAPO’s mission is to develop, lead, and promote professional organizers and the organizing industry. The organization has 4,200 professional organizers members across the U.S.
PODS was founded in 1998 and currently provides moving and storage services to more than 250 million consumers and businesses through its company-owned and independent franchise network. The PODS network has completed more than 350,000 long-distance relocations, exceeded 1.8 million deliveries and has nearly 143,000 PODS containers in service.
PODS secure containers are constructed of a steel frame and are available in three sizes: approximately 7-by-7-by-8 feet, 12-by-8-by-8 feet and 16-by-8-by-8 feet. The 12-foot and 16-foot containers have been tested to withstand winds of more than 110-mph when partially loaded. Newer PODS containers have the same steel frame construction, but are completely recyclable panels made of steel skins and a high-density polyethylene core.
The National Association of Professional Organizers is the premier association dedicated to the field of organizing. Since forming in 1985 as a nonprofit professional educational association, NAPO has been dedicated to serving its members through education, networking, industry resources, and promoting the profession to the public.
