PODS vs. U-Haul U-BOX
PODS vs. U-Box
Why choose PODS over U-Haul’s U-Box?
U-Box Size & Quality Disadvantages@Model.Title.HeadingType>
No matter the size of your job, PODS has three container sizes to meet your needs. U-Box only comes in one size, 8’x5’x7.5’, and it would take four of their containers to equal the capacity of our popular PODS 16’ container.
PODS containers are sturdy, steel-framed, and weather resistant. They’re reinforced with thick plywood walls covered in aluminum or fiberglass on the interior. U-Box containers sacrifice quality, durability and security due to their wood framing and thin vinyl cover.
U-Box is new to the portable moving and storage industry, but PODS has nearly 25 years of experience. We know what it takes to properly protect your things. That’s what led us to design our innovating level-lift system, PODZILLA, which keeps containers level while being lifted on and off PODS trucks.
PODS has a nationwide network of portable moving and storage facilities backed by award-winning customer service. We don't sacrifice the quality of our products or the support you'll get through every step of your move. If you see a lower price, you may be sacrificing quality and care for savings.

How PODS Works
Get it & load it
We deliver your container, and to ensure your safety, PODS is a contactless service so you don't need to meet your driver. Take your time loading on your schedule, right in your driveway. If you want help, your PODS personal moving and storage team will connect you with local packing and loading companies.
At-home storage gives you the flexibility you need, whether you want easy storage just steps away, or you want to take your time packing and loading.
If you need temporary storage, we'll pick up your loaded container and bring it to a local PODS Storage Center, where it will be safe, secure, and easily accessible until you need it again.
We've got this, so you don't have to. We'll deliver your container to your new home, whether you're moving across town or across the country.* If you need to ship your car, we can connect you with one of our preferred car shipping providers who will arrange professional services in your area.
