ALLIED, 2 MEN AND A TRUCK AND UNITED DON’T STACK UP
Add in their rigid scheduling and inﬂexible processes of most professional movers, and people can often feel like they’re working for the movers, instead of the other way around.
PODS vs. Full-Service Moving Companies
- PODS’ damage claims are less than 2% compared to 20% in the full-service industry.* With full-service movers such as Allied, North American and Mayﬂower, your items are often unloaded and reloaded several times during transport, increasing the risk of breakage. With PODS, you only need to load and unload your items once. And since you get your own container, your stuff never gets mixed with anyone else’s.
- You have the flexibility to load and unload your container at your own pace. Full-service moving companies like Two Men and a Truck and Atlas have a rigid schedule. With PODS, you’re in control of scheduling and pick your own delivery and pick-up dates.
- Storage is part of our solution. Secure storage is built seamlessly into the PODS process, whereas full-service movers may not even offer storage as an option, and if they do, they usually charge additional fees to store your items – up to $500 per month – and you may not have access to your belongings!
- Easily access your belongings while they’re in storage. Some moving and storage companies do not give you access to your stored items. With PODS, retrieving or adding to your belongings is as easy as a phone call.
