PODS Vs. U-Pack Trailer 

U-Pack Trailer rentals vs PODS


We introduced portable containers in 1998 to make moving services and storage solutions easier and less stressful for people. A few traditional moving and freight companies like U-Pack Trailer introduced moving and storage trailer services at about the same time. And while they might offer a couple of the same conveniences as PODS, they can’t offer the level of flexibility, security, and control that we do. Compare PODS vs. U-Pack Trailers for yourself.
PODS #1 in Customer service 2019

PODS ranks #1 in Customer Service for Moving Companies

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 so excited to announce that an independent survey commissioned by Newsweek Magazine ranks PODS #1 in customer satisfaction for the moving category. Thanks, Newsweek. More importantly, THANKS PODS CUSTOMERS!!!

Take your time loading and unloading

PODS gives you all the time you need to load and unload your portable storage container. U-Pack’s Trailer service, on the other hand, limits your loading and unloading time, so you better hope for good weather! 
control your moving and storage


We work according to your schedule, instead of the other way around. So you tell us when to drop off, pick up and deliver your container. Whether it's a long-distance move or local move, or a project that requires on-site storage or indoor storage at one of our storage unit facilities, we put you in control. We also offer unmatched flexibility, so we can easily change service dates and locations if your situation changes unexpectedly.

Ground-Level Loading

Hiking up and down a ramp all day gets old fast, especially when you’re carrying heavy furniture and boxes. That’s exactly what you get with a U-Pack Trailer. But PODS containers are ground-level, so loading and unloading is much easier. We also have PODZILLA to help keep your container level when we lift it onto, and off of our trucks. 

How PODS Works
