When I opened my POD after it was stored at their facility for several months I was shocked! Everything was thrown everywhere! It was fairly well packed so the damage was minimal. Still, it looked like it had gone thru a 9.0 earthquake! It was so bad that one of the 4x4 beams that make the frame of the POD was broken! Luckily the valuable item I had secured to that beam was well wrapped in blankets or it would've been ruined. Many boxes were ripped open from the force and hundreds if not thousands of my photographs and paperwork was scattered everywhere. The second POD arrived with my belongings mashed up against the door and it took several hours to get it open. It appears this POD with my belongings was so abused that my items actually flew up and hit the ceiling! They hit with such force that they broke two holes right thru the roof! One hole is big enough that a large man could pass thru (which makes me wonder as to its security). The roof is also cracked and broken in many other places. It's only a guess because I'll never know the truth; but I think the POD may have been upside down at one point? To make it all worse; it rained hard the night before I opened the POD. I had no idea about the holes so many of my belongings were wet; damaged paper, books, electronics, rusted metal, etc etc - .
