The real deal with how long you can keep a POD storage container on the street?
The DC TOPS website states:
The maximum time allowed for a moving container to remain in public space is 5 days…
But I’m sure I’ve seen PODS on the street in Petworth for much longer. There are a couple on 9th & Gallatin NW that have been there for over a week, for instance.
Just wondering if anyone has any first-hand knowledge/experience to pass along on this?
We’re renovating and moving a ton of stuff into a POD. I don’t want to keep the POD out there for months, but more than 5 days (10-14?) would certainly be helpful, and so I’m just gauging my risk / options here.
Minor personal detail: Our POD will actually be off the street, behind our house, but this is still considered public land by DC. I’m hoping this might also give us a few more days of wiggle room, but again, anyone that has personal experience to share, please chime in!
Thanks in advance!
