Why Choose PODS

When it’s time to move, customers choose PODS over the competition because:

  • You’re in control of the timeline: You pick your dates, and your container is rented by the month so you can take your time. 
  • Stay flexible with built-in storage: Easily store your container in your driveway or in one of our 240+ Storage Centers nationwide.
  • We take care of the driving*: We bring the container to you and transport it to your new home – whether it’s across town or across the county.
  • You can customize your move: We have a solution for you, no matter how complicated your move is.

With over 20 years’ experience and 6 million deliveries, we know that local and long-distance moves aren’t a cookie-cutter situation. That’s why we encourage customers to call us for a quote.

When you call us, we ask and answer questions, walking you through each step before quoting a custom, detailed rate estimate based on your unique needs. You get a free quote on the spot, and another in writing via email.

PODS Pricing Gives You Flexibility & Peace of Mind

Moving can be stressful, which is why we keep billing simple.

  • No deposits, no obligations: Like most hotel reservations, you can reserve your moving container with a credit card – no payments due until 7 days before your container delivery.
  • Easy cancellation: If you change your dates or change your mind, it's no worries! Visit to view our full cancellation policy. 
  • Pay-as-you-go pricing: Unlike other movers, with PODS you don’t need to pay for your entire move upfront. You only pay for each stage at a time, making it easier on your budget.
  • No surprise costs: Our pricing isn’t based on the weight of your belongings. Many full-service moving companies charge by weight, so customers risk a big difference between their estimate and final cost.
  • Avoid late fees: You rent your container by the month, so you can take your time loading and unloading – without worrying about extra fees on a truck rental.
  • Flexible scheduling: With PODS there are no rigid schedules. Change of plans? Just let us know.
  • Acorn Finance Moving Loans: Financing through Acorn Finance can help make your move more manageable. Visit for more details.

Customer Reviews

Daniel S., Chicago, IL

“No hidden charges, what I was quoted was what I was charged. Also, everything was on time. The pick-up, the delivery, the drivers were always between the window of time I was given. Great experience and much more affordable than hiring movers.”

Brice G., Charleston, SC

“We sold our house so our closing was the 13th and bought our next house in the same month and closed on the 30th. The cost to rent a truck for the two different days and a storage unit at that size would have been well over what I paid not to mention refilling the truck with gas. [Not having] to run back and forth to a storage unit was also a fantastic perk. Once we delivered the [PODS storage unit] to our new home we had the flexibility to leave it in our driveway and move things in at our leisure.”

Patricia W., Sarasota, FL

“Very efficient and cost-effective way to move at our own pace! We were moving out of state to a rental property that was furnished and house hunting once we moved. We were able to store our belongings in a secure environment and waited to ship the [PODS portable container] after hurricane season to our new home! Your services and products were effortless on our part, thank you!”

Amanda B., Boston, MA

“From start to finish our experience using PODS was fantastic. If we ever move again PODS will be the first company I call. It was easy and affordable! I would definitely recommend it to anyone moving.”
