I did it with PODS last time I moved. We had 4 months between the sale of one house and the completion of the other.
It worked out good for us. Alot easier than a storage unit although a little more expensive. When you move in you can do it at your own pace instead of having boxes everywhere.

My stuff got pretty banged up on a storage container move. The container fit inside a tractor trailer, but they didn't secure the wheels inside so it rolled back and forth slamming into the other pod and the wall for thousands of miles.

Default here's a pods coupon

I used PODS when I moved here from Jersey and they were great!!! In this area you can use code 9957 and get a free month of storage.
