How PODS works without a driveway: City Service

PODS City Service

We come to you

PODS brings your sturdy, steel-framed portable container on a truck to your location.  The container stays on the truck, so no driveway is needed.

PODS City Service

You load/unload the container

A hydraulic lift, operated by our driver, allows for convenient ramp-free loading. It carries you, your helpers, and your belongings to and from your container.

PODS city moving reviews

Matthew G., NYC

“The city service in NYC was amazing. It made moving out as easy as it could have been.” 

Christopher T., Brooklyn

“The driver who brought the PODS container to me in Brooklyn was the best ever!!!!! Not easy moving into a one way street on a busy Saturday afternoon. He helped move traffic, block off access so I could work more efficiently, and had my back as some New Yorkers are very difficult to deal with. He was professional and courteous and deserves a raise after what we both had to deal with for that hour. He is a keeper when it comes to customer service.” 

John A., NYC

“Friendly customer service. Everyone we dealt with was extremely positive and helpful. We set this up at the last minute and it went incredibly smooth - We have moved A LOT, this was the very best!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a driveway for my container?

No, you don't need a driveway to use PODS services. PODS has services to fit your needs whether you have a driveway or not.

How does PODS work when I don't have a driveway?

When you don't have a driveway, options depend on your community's regulations and your particular situation. We can easily deliver and place a container on the street near your home if your local municipality, HOA or property manager allows street placement. A permit may be required and your local government, HOA or community can assist with acquiring it.  If street placement isn't an option, PODS City Service may be the ideal way to go. PODS delivers a portable container on a truck to your location. The container remains on the truck while you load or unload it. PODS takes care of the permits and our driver remains with the container to keep an eye on your belongings.

Does the PODS driver load my container?

Due to government regulations, PODS drivers cannot assist in carrying your items, but if you need help, we'll be happy to connect you with professional packing and loading companies.

How long do I have to load my container?

PODS City Service includes 4 hours for you to load or unload your container. Should you need extra time, additional charges will apply.

What happens if I can't load my container in 4 hours?

If you are unable to load your container in the 4 hours included and require extra time, additional charges will apply.

Do I have to get permits for the PODS truck to park in the street?

No, PODS will look after obtaining the permits for street parking and the driver will stay with the truck while you load or unload it.

Do I have to hold a space for the PODS truck in my street?

No, PODS will look after securing a location for the PODS truck so you are able to load or unload your belongings.

How does it work if City Service is available only in the city I am moving to or from?

PODS services are available in thousands of locations across the country. The way we deliver your container depends on whether you have a driveway or not. If you're moving from a location with no driveway and we are unable to place a container on the street, if available, we'll deliver via City Service, where the container remains on the truck while you load or unload it. If the location you're moving to has a driveway, your container will be placed on the driveway.

Do you have packing & loading assistance to help me?

Yes, if you prefer not to pack and/or load yourself, we can connect you with local packing and loading pros to give you a hand.

How do I load the container when it's on a truck?

The container remains on the truck at all times. Our heavy-duty level, hydraulic lift makes loading and unloading easy with no walking up and down a ramp.  The PODS driver will operate the lift for you.

Do I have to walk up and down a ramp to load the truck?

No, there is no ramp! Our heavy-duty level, hydraulic lift makes loading and unloading easy with no walking up and down a ramp.
