Moving and storage company earns top honor against seven competing California PODS franchise locations
“Joel Courage and his team had an exceptional year,” said Ken Ude, president of Storage Mobility. “They set a very high bar in terms of delivering outstanding customer service to their customers in the region.”
PODS of Stockton/Modesto is also active in the community through its charitable donations to various nonprofit organizations. During the 2012 Toys for Tots drive, which is the national charity for PODS® Enterprises, Inc., the moving and storage company donated four PODS® containers and helped collect 18,000 toys for area children.
Other charities the moving and storage company supports each year include: Bethel Church Children's Ministry, BR&JC Homeless Park Ministry, Celebrate Recovery, Modesto Fire Department’s “Fill the Boot for Burns” campaign, CHiPs for Kids toy drive, Assemblies of God Missions Outreach to Africa and Dell Osso Kids Day. In total, PODS of Stockton/Modesto helped save these charities $10,600 in moving and storage logistics for 2012.
“Delivering excellent customer service is always a top priority for our team,” said Joel Courage, territory manager for PODS of Stockton/Modesto. “We have worked very hard this year and receiving this award has given us reassurance and confirmation that our work exemplifies the best practices to uphold PODS’ standards.”
PODS provides portable moving and storage solutions for customers who are moving or need extra storage by delivering a safe and secure PODS® container for the customer to load their belongings. PODS can then move the container across town or to many U.S. locations. Customers can also store their container for as long as they want in a PODS climate-controlled storage facility.
