Portable Moving Container Information | PODS

How much can a PODS Moving Container hold?

PODS containers are clean and spacious, and designed to make it easy for you to load and unload and get the most for your money. Items like mattresses, tables, and couches will typically take up space without adding a lot of weight. For some customers who are moving large book or magazine collections, weights and workout equipment, or heavy tools, you may not be able to use all of the available space and should take extra care to balance and secure goods inside of their PODS containers.
