Why choose PODS over U-Haul U-Box®?

When PODS invented the concept of portable storage containers in 1998, moving and storage were changed forever. As great ideas are contagious, it’s only natural that other companies followed our lead and entered the portable storage industry, as U-Haul did with their U-Box containers.

Nevertheless, after two decades, PODS continues to be a trusted leader in portable moving and storage. That’s because from the very beginning, we’ve never stopped innovating in our effort to provide the most flexible, convenient experience for our customers.

Here are some ways PODS stands out from U-Box:

  • PODS’ sturdy, steel-framed, and weather-resistant containers are built for peace of mind, whereas U-Box containers are made of pressure-treated wood and covered with a tarp.
  • Get all the space you need. PODS offers multiple container sizes, whereas U-Box offers only one size option. At most locations, PODS offers 7-foot, 12-foot, and 16-foot containers to accommodate your needs.
  • You don’t have to spend all day waiting for your container to show up. PODS provides you with an estimated service window the night before your delivery.
  • You don’t have to be home for deliveries. There’s no need to take off time from work just to receive your container.
