No surprise fees

We don’t determine the cost of your move by the weight of your belongings, like many long-distance moving companies do, so there’s less likely to be a huge difference between your quote and your final bill.

Cross country moves


PODS portable containers are ideal for long-distance moves or moving across country for a job, especially if you haven't quite figured out your final housing. That's because storage is built into every move, so you can take your time finding a new place.

PODS offers unlimited time and space, so you can keep a container in your driveway while you decide what to get rid of. Then, we can pick it up and bring it to a secure Storage Center, ship it to your kids, or both.

Home staging

If you’re staging your home for sale before a long-distance move and need to reduce the clutter, you can always use a PODS container to store the things you don’t want. Once the house is sold, we’ll bring your container back so you can load the rest of your things. When you’re ready to go, we’ll move it all to your new place. Now that’s efficient!

Your stuff won't get mixed up

Traditional long-distance moving companies will often transport several customers’ belongings in the same truck, increasing the possibility of mix-ups and lost items during transit. PODS containers are loaded by you, locked by you, and unlocked by you, eliminating these possibilities completely.
