PODS VS. U-Pack

U-PACK Vs. PODS

WHY U-PACK JUST CAN’T MEASURE UP TO PODS

20 years ago, we decided to make moving and storage easier and less stressful by redesigning the experience around you. We introduced portable containers and, if imitation is the highest form of flattery, then we’re about as flattered as a company can be. Because ever since, copycats like U-Pack have popped up everywhere. But they can’t match our experience, fleet size, or huge national network. In fact, it’s not even close. Take a look for yourself.

PODS RANKS #1 IN CUSTOMER SATISFACTION FOR MOVING

It’s always nice to get some love, especially when it’s in recognition of how we treat our customers. That’s why we’re excited to announce that an independent survey commissioned by Newsweek Magazine ranked PODS #1 in customer satisfaction for the moving category, beating UPack.
 

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR IF YOU’RE LOOKING AT U-PACK

ONLY ONE CONTAINER SIZE OPTION

Everybody likes options. And if you’re moving and storing lots of stuff, it’s nice to have the option to rent a larger container. You don’t get that with U-Pack. They only offer a single 6' container size, while PODS gives you 16' and 7' options. So, you’d have to rent 3 U-Pack containers to get the capacity of a single PODS 16' container. That means 3 containers in your driveway instead of 1, 2 additional locks to purchase, which also means 2 additional keys to keep track of. It’s also worth noting that our 7' container is 15% larger than U-Pack’s 6' container, so PODS gives you more space for smaller moving and storage projects as well.

HIGHER CHARGES FOR DOOR-TO-DOOR DELIVERY

For long-distance moves, U-Pack will occasionally provide pricing for “terminal-to-terminal” delivery, meaning the cost to transport your container from the temporary storage warehouse in your old city to one in your new city, instead of door-to-door from your old home to your new one. So be sure you understand which one they’re quoting, because their door to-door service is more expensive. With PODS, our quotes are always door-to-door.

LACK OF STORAGE OPTIONS AND LIMITED CONTAINER AVAILABILITY

PODS began as a portable storage company in 1998. So, not only are we storage experts, we’ve got more than 230 secure Storage Centers nationwide. That’s the most of anybody in our category. So, if there’s even a chance that you’ll need storage with your move, PODS is the right move for you.

COMPROMISED QUALITY FOR A CHEAPER PRICE

Our 20 years of experience and huge, nationwide network means we’ve become very efficient. But we’ll never compromise on the excellent quality of our service, which is reflected in our #1 ranking for customer service by Newsweek. So if you see a better price out there, think about what they had to compromise on to get there.
