How much can a PODS Storage Container hold?

PODS containers are clean, spacious and designed to make it easy for you to load and unload. We have multiple container sizes to accommodate different sized moving or storage needs.

We have a 7’ container which is recommended for smaller jobs like a single furnished room. Also available is our 12’ container which typically accommodates an average of 2-3 rooms, and the 16’ container for 3-4 rooms.

Both the 7’ and 16’ containers are available for long distance moves in the U.S. and Canada. For local moving and storage, 12’ and 16’ containers are available in most PODS locations. Many locations also offer our 7’ container to meet your local needs.
