Are your PODS® rates too high?
If you’ve seen a PODS® container around town, you may have thought they were much better alternative to driving a rental truck across the country. They fit into a driveway or in front of a house and they sit close to the ground so moving things in and out is easy – what could be better? But then you request a quote and see the price … and maybe you start wondering if there are any cheaper container moving options out there.

When we moved out of our small apartment, we didn’t have much stuff, but it was a bit of an inconvenience to carry everything up a ramp to load it in the rental truck. If only I would have known about portable storage containers back then. Because they’re ground-level, they’re easy to load and very convenient for moving. There are several companies that offer moving containers—two of the most talked about are PODS® and U-Pack.
