Why Choose PODS@Model.Title.HeadingType>
When it’s time to move, customers choose PODS over the competition because:
- You’re in control of the timeline: You pick your dates, and your container is rented by the month so you can take your time.
- Stay flexible with built-in storage: Easily store your container in your driveway or in one of our 240+ Storage Centers nationwide.
- We take care of the driving*: We bring the container to you and transport it to your new home – whether it’s across town or across the county.
- You can customize your move: We have a solution for you, no matter how complicated your move is.
With over 20 years’ experience and 6 million deliveries, we know that local and long-distance moves aren’t a cookie-cutter situation. That’s why we encourage customers to call us for a quote.

PODS Pricing Gives You Flexibility & Peace of Mind@Model.Title.HeadingType>
Moving can be stressful, which is why we keep billing simple.
- No deposits, no obligations: Like most hotel reservations, you can reserve your moving container with a credit card – no payments due until 7 days before your container delivery.
- Easy cancellation: If you change your dates or change your mind, it's no worries! Visit pods.com/cancel to view our full cancellation policy.
- Pay-as-you-go pricing: Unlike other movers, with PODS you don’t need to pay for your entire move upfront. You only pay for each stage at a time, making it easier on your budget.
- No surprise costs: Our pricing isn’t based on the weight of your belongings. Many full-service moving companies charge by weight, so customers risk a big difference between their estimate and final cost.
- Avoid late fees: You rent your container by the month, so you can take your time loading and unloading – without worrying about extra fees on a truck rental.
- Flexible scheduling: With PODS there are no rigid schedules. Change of plans? Just let us know.
- Acorn Finance Moving Loans: A personal loan through Acorn Finance can help make your move more manageable. Visit https://www.pods.com/moving-loans for more details.
