PODS vs. Traditional Moving Companies
How PODS Compares to Traditional Moving Companies@Model.Title.HeadingType>
Allied, 2 Men and a Truck and United Don’t Stack Up
Add in their rigid scheduling and inﬂexible processes of most professional movers, and people can often feel like they’re working for the movers, instead of the other way around.
PODS vs. Full-Service Movers@Model.Title.HeadingType>
With full-service movers such as Allied, North American, and Mayflower, your items are often unloaded and reloaded several times during transport, increasing the risk of breakage. With PODS, you only need to load and unload your items once. And since you get your own container, your stuff never gets mixed with anyone else's.
Full-service movers like Two Men and a Truck and Atlas have a rigid schedule. With PODS, you’re in control of scheduling and pick your own delivery and pick-up dates.
Full-service movers may not even offer storage as an option, and if they do, they usually charge additional fees to store your items – up to $500 per month – and you may not have access to your belongings!
Some full-service companies do not give you access to your stored items. With PODS, retrieving or adding to your belongings is as easy as a phone call.
How PODS Works
Get it & load it
We deliver your container -- and there's no need to meet the driver, as PODS is a contactless service.. Load on your schedule, right in your driveway. If you want help, we can connect you with local packing and loading companies.
At-home storage gives you the flexibility you need, whether you want easy storage just steps away, or you want to take your time packing and loading.
If you need temporary storage, we'll pick up your loaded container and bring it to a local PODS Storage Center, where it will be safe, secure, and easily accessible until you need it again.
