A common concern was damage done to the container. One was warped by move's end and the other had to be fixed after a forklift accident. The containers are moved using forklifts, which has its pros and cons. On the negative side, the forklift can be accident prone, especially if the professional handling it is new to this game. On the bright side, one reviewer, Suzanne S., who had moved from Berkeley to Boston, wrote the forklift was a lifesaver when navigating narrow, congested streets.
That’s what comes to mind for most people when you mention a filter in a house.  One of the first things you should do when taking possession of a house is to change the furnace filter.   Think about it – it’s got other people’s dust and dander on it.   Start fresh.   Write down  the size and note which way it’s installed.  With some filters it matters which direction the air is flowing, so don’t get it backwards.  Check your furnace manual to be sure what you should have.    Most large hardware/home stores carry the standard sizes.   Replace it at the start of each heating season, at least.   If you have central air conditioning, this filter will be catching stuff year round. Check it monthly and change it if it looks dirty.

Indeed, the company spends a significant bit of text explaining what makes their containers strong and durable. The storage containers are made of wood and prevent condensation, mold, and mildew and the cover resists weather, according to the website. It also touts the container's ability to fit into driveways and parking spaces and accommodate apartment and condo loading areas.

For those on municipal water, about 80% of Americans, the water is treated in most instances with a variety of chemicals such as disinfectants like chlorine, chloramines, as well as acid neutralizers and more. These chemical disinfectants also cause the creation of disinfection by-products known as trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAA).

These filters can trap very small particles of dust, pollen, mold, and other irritants. Some of these filters work much like the air and oil filters in your car. They are made using pleated filter paper. Other filters are made with fine synthetic polyester fibers. Higher efficiency air filters can sometimes be coated with chemicals that can kill tiny microbes such as bacteria and mold. There are several advantages to using these higher efficiency air filters. Not only will your heating and cooling equipment perform better, your operating costs may well be lower. The air you breathe will be cleaner, as will your furniture and drapes. That $60 service call could have bought 10 filters that may have lasted through five cooling seasons!  Source
Okay, I get it. Door to Door does not serve the entire country in the way a company like U-Haul does, nor does it go abroad even to places, such as our neighbor Canada. That's fine. But the website suggested it did provide moving services for New York City and Orlando and their surrounding areas. Fort Lee, NJ, the starting point for this hypothetical move, is literally home to the George Washington Bridge, which links the Garden State to Manhattan. Manhattan and the Bronx, which is even closer to Fort Lee, are both listed as moving destinations for Door to Door. In fact, U-Haul was possibly going to make the warehouse for my stuff be its Bronx location. So, Door to Door seems small potatoes if it can't provide service in a part of northern New Jersey that is as close to NYC as my town is.
Mechanical air filters remove dust by capturing it on the filter medium, the material that makes up the filter element. A mechanical air filter is any type of dry media filter. All of the throwaway air filters used in HVAC systems and Air Handlers are mechanical air filters. Any man made or natural fiber filter is a mechanical air filter. This includes HEPA air filters as well.  Source
The locations are limited and the age of the containers and fleet is not clear. "Some containers are new and some are older," says a customer service representative of the containers, who refrained from answering about the fleet age. But the company is operating a little more than 20 years and markets itself as constantly updating its offerings. I would imagine that includes the trucks and even the forklifts and not just the containers.
Installing a washable, reusable air filter can help save you money over disposable filters—which must be frequently repurchased (approximately every 90 days in the average suburban home, and every 60 days or sooner if you have pets). Instead of fully replacing your filter several times a year (which can be very costly), simply wash and reinstall your new K&N® lifetime washable home air filter in your cooling and heating system.

Hello. I have a 30 gallon tank I clean religiously every Monday to keep optimal and healthy happy fish. Freshwater with a couple mollies “Pearl, Spot and Elvis”, 2 guppies “Nemo and Dory”, an albino Plecko “Dart”, a bristlenoe Plecko “Dino” (very lazy and doesn’t do anything for my tank hence the albino plecko lol), and a community Betta “Cinderella” (yes that’s right a Betta in with my other community fish). She loves to play in the water flow from the side hanging filter BUT I can’t stand the noise it makes constantly like a waterfall. I was hoping for something a bit quieter but not to much it would hurt Cinderella’s scales. Also the bettas eat so slow with side hanging filtration I have to turn it off at every feeding to allow her time to eat otherwise as slow as she eats all her food just gets pulled away and she goes hungry and I need something I can trust to not harm her AND allow her food to rest at the top to eat comfortably. Also I’m on disability so the more affordable on upkeep such as replacement filters I NEED to keep in mind because this side hanger the filters are getting expensive. I need to change them every other week because they have become so cheaply made that cleaning them just doesn’t get the job done but once MAYBE twice now. Thanks in advance.

The filter with more pleats per foot across the face will allow you to have better airflow throughout your home.  The more air that flows through your house, the more often it is passed and re-circulated through the filter. The end result is cleaner air because of the higher frequency of air passes through the filter.  For example, if you could find a way to install a hospital grade operating room filter in your home unit, it wouldn’t do you much good because your fan and motor doesn’t have enough power to push enough air through it.  A good quality filter with a high MERV 11 rating can actually leave you with dirtier air than using a cheap 1 dollar filter if the MERV 11 filter doesn’t have enough pleats per foot.  Less pleats per foot is a cheap and dirty way for filter sellers to trick buyers into thinking they are getting a better deal. Insist on MERV 11 filters that have a minimum of 18 pleats per foot!  Source
In addition, I asked outright about Kissimmee, which is considered Orlando because of its vicinity. And the customer service rep said moving services were not available for that zip code either. This is even crazier to me because Orlando is a popular destination, especially with young people. And it is one of four cities in Florida that Door to Door claims to serve. Then, there are also colleges that the company serves for students who are moving from dorm to dorm. Even with all those covered areas and living and moving to major metropolitan areas, I was not able to make even a fake move with Door to Door. It's a small group that can actually use these services.
"The day of move in Boston was particularly crazy because the city had closed off our street for major construction. Door-to-door worked with me on the phone to help notify the driver and then he did some voodoo magic getting those pods from his truck that was parked on a neighboring side street that was one way the wrong way and to our front door… Mad props to these guys and their drivers."
“This filter has given us water that is as good or better than the large bottles of spring water we'd been buying,” one tester revealed. In addition to the water quality, reviewers liked that once it was set up, the separate faucet was easy to access, with the filter system fitting nicely underneath the sink. The one negative, according to our reviewers, was the time-consuming installation, but, overall, they thought it was worth the price tag: “We'll have to buy new filters, but we'll still save money in the long run by no longer buying bottled water,” one person noted.
