PODS / left high and dry

NY, United States Review updated:

After paying them THOUSANDS for storage and pick up, they are unable to deliver the POD to my new home. Their response? Either 1. Get a city permit to park the POD on the street. This will take weeks and weeks. My movers are scheduled for the day after tomorrow! 2. Have the POD delivered to a parking lot. So then I have to find a parking lot near my house that will allow 3 spaces to be taken up for days. Yeah, right. Or 3. Get a rental truck and come to the PODS facility and empty the container myself. So I have to pay for a rental truck on top of the ridiculous amount of money I have already spent? Get real. PODS has failed me and now I am screwed. Their customer service people gave me a laughable 5 days grace period to scramble and figure out what I am supposed to do now. If I can't figure out another plan, I will get charged another $300 for a month of storage. Hopefully the movers are willing to drive out to the facility and empty it into their truck, drive back and move it into my house. Guess who has to foot the bill for all of the extra hours that will take? PODS is a joke and a scam operation.
