How PODS City Service Works

A PODS driver brings your container on a truck at your scheduled time and remains for 4 hours. This gives you, or any professional help you may hire, enough time to load or unload. But if you do need more time, no worries. We can invoice by the hour if that’s the case. When your container is loaded and ready to go, we can take it back to a secure PODS Storage Center and keep it there for as long as you like, or we can deliver it to your new home across town, or across the country.


City Service

Easy loading and unloading

PODS City Service trucks are equipped with a level-load lift system operated by your certified PODS driver. This heavy-duty, hydraulic lift-gate keeps all your items level during loading and unloading. You don’t have to struggle going up and down a ramp during your urban move.

Move across town or across the country

Whether you're moving out of a city, to a new city, or within your current one, we've got you covered. PODS has locations in 47 states, including Hawaii, so we can deliver your container almost anywhere in the US.

Storage you only have to load and unload once

With typical storage you rent a truck, then load the truck, then drive it to the storage unit, then unload it into your storage unit. That’s a lot of work. With a PODS container, you only load and unload once.

Matthew G., NYC

“The city service in NYC was amazing. It made moving out as easy as it could have been.” 

Christopher T., Brooklyn

“The driver who brought the PODS container to me in Brooklyn was the best ever!!!!! Not easy moving into a one way street on a busy sat afternoon. He helped move traffic, block off access so I could work more efficiently, and had my back as some New Yorkers are very difficult to deal with. He was professional and courteous and deserves a raise after what we both had to deal with for that hour. He is a keeper when it comes to customer service.” 

John A., NYC

“Friendly customer service. Everyone we dealt with was extremely positive and helpful. We set this up at the last minute and it went incredibly smooth - We have moved ALOT, this was the very best!”
