Zippy Shell vs PODS

PODS vs. Self-Storage

In 1998, we revolutionized the industry by delivering storage to our customers. Decades later, self-storage facilities still can’t compete.

Compare PODS to Self-Storage Units

PODS-VS-Self Storage

Public storage, U-Haul Storage, and extra space just don't compare.

Moving stuff into storage shouldn’t take an entire weekend. The great news is that now it doesn’t have to. PODS eliminates the need for driving by delivering a sturdy, steel-framed, weather-resistant container to your door. We give you all the time you need to load it, then we pick it up and drive it to one of our secure storage facilities where we keep it until you need it again. Then we drive it back to you. Does your local self-storage facility do that?

We didn’t think so.

Storage That Fits Your Needs

PODS brings the storage to you with contactless delivery

Don’t worry about renting a truck and hauling your stuff across town. There's no need to meet the driver or be present when we deliver or pick up your container. 

Load your stuff just one time

Save yourself the trouble of loading, unloading, re-loading, and re-unloading.

We do moving, too

PODS can transport your container from your local Storage Center to one in your new city, or we can deliver it to your new home.

Store at your place or ours

Keep your things close in your driveway, or we’ll store your container in our secure indoor facilities.

Easy access to your stuff

Keep your things just steps away 24/7 in your driveway or get free unlimited access to your items at a PODS Storage Center.

Protect your stuff

Our sturdy, steel-frame, weather-resistant containers and secure indoor storage facilities are designed to give you peace of mind.

Packing and loading help available

Need a helping hand? We’ll connect you with highly rated pros in your area.

Clear, up-front pricing

Watch out for sweet, first-month bait-and-switch deals that are so popular with self-storage businesses. Once you’re locked in, many of them will automatically increase your monthly rent.
