THE BENEFITS OF PODS INDOOR STORAGE UNITS

Storage units

Added Security

All PODS Storage Centers are closed to the general public and offer access by appointment only. We also lock down our facilities overnight for your round-the-clock peace of mind.
Indoor storage facilities

Protection from the elements

All our Storage Centers are indoor facilities, offering protection for your container from rain, snow and extreme temperatures. In fact, when you store your unit at a PODS Storage Center, you get a “double layer” of protection – the steel-framed container plus the facility building.

We do all the driving

We bring the storage to you, delivering a sturdy, weather-resistant container to your home, then pick it up and drive it to the Storage Center after it’s loaded. No need to rent a huge truck.

Load once. Unload once.

With traditional storage facilities, you have to load your rental truck and unload it into the storage facility. To get your stuff out, you load a truck at the storage facility and unload it at your house. With PODS, you only load and unload once, saving yourself lots of time and heavy lifting.

When to store With PODS Vs. a Self-Storage Unit

Or, if you’re in college or the military and move a lot, you can keep some stuff in storage until life becomes more settled. Just load your container and we’ll drive it to one of our secure Storage Centers for as long as you like. Store in your old city, your new city, or anywhere in between.

Home Staging

Easy storage at one of our facilities can help make your place its ready-to-sell best. Clear your home of clutter and load it into a PODS portable storage unit. We'll move it to one of our secure Storage Centers until your home sells. When it's time to move, your PODS container will be pre-packed and ready.

Less effort, less stress.

Renting a typical storage unit usually means renting a truck, loading it, driving it to the storage unit, unloading it, then dropping off the truck. And when you’re ready to get your stuff out, you have to go through the whole process again in reverse.

With PODS, we bring the storage unit to you, give you all the time you need to load it, then we pick it up and take it to a PODS storage facility until you need it again. Then we bring it back. So you only load and unload once, and we do all the driving.

Moving stuff into storage can be chaotic sometimes, with boxes piling up in your house as you pack things up. But PODS gives you all the time you need to load your container, meaning you can load as you pack, so your house will be less cluttered and you will be more organized.

Storage Facility Reviews

Patty M., Chapel Hill, NC

"A fixed storage unit would have required us to hire a mover four times (to pack and unpack a moving truck and again when we moved to our home). With a PODS container, we only had to pack the items in and out. A fantastic system and wonderful communication by your company."

Gabriele S., Largo, FL

“There were many positive aspects in my interaction with PODS, however having my things delivered in the same condition as when they were loaded stands out. There were absolutely no problems relative to damage, temperature related issues, or convenience of access.”

Robin F., Pompano Beach, FL

“I had to access my container several times while it was being stored at the Pompano Beach, Florida storage facility. Scheduling access was with ease and professional. The gentleman that ran the storage facility was very professional, accommodating, friendly, and extremely nice to deal with.”

QUESTIONS ABOUT STORAGE FACILITIES? YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.

What does climate-controlled storage mean?

Climate-controlled storage is a general term used to describe storage that maintains air temperature and humidity levels in a specified space. Even though lots of storage companies advertise “climate-controlled storage,” many offer only vague descriptions of what that means. There are no official industry standards or regulations that set requirements for customers to rely on, so it’s up to you to ask how the storage facility backs up their claims about providing climate controlled storage.

To learn more about climate-controlled storage and whether you really need it, see about climate control and indoor storage.

WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW WHEN OR WHERE MY STORAGE UNIT NEEDS TO MOVE?

In our mobile society, uncertainty around moving and storage needs is a fact of life. That’s a big reason why people choose portable storage over traditional movers, rental trucks, and self-storage. With a company that combines portable storage units and moving services with a large network of locations, you can manage a move with confidence, even if you don’t know where or when you’ll ultimately land.

This is exactly why PODS reinvented how moving services are done, starting 20 years ago. With PODS, you can keep your container on your property or in one of our secure Storage Centers until your next home is ready. With our national coverage across 46 states, it’s likely your destination address is covered in our huge network, but before selecting PODS for your move, be sure to verify that we service the ZIP codes you may possibly move to by calling (855) 706-4758.

How do I pack stuff for storage?

Your approach to packing items for storage will depend on several factors. Whatever your situation, here are some of our most popular resources on the best ways to pack to prevent damage and ease stress when storing and moving your stuff:

How do I prepare my belongings for storage?

Your main goals when you’re preparing your belongings for storage are to optimize your space while reducing the risk of damage from breakage, mold, or mildew. The most important principles are preparation, organization, and inspection:

Preparing and organizing your items: This can range from decluttering and downsizing so you spend less on storage space to packing items carefully to protect from breakage. Our storage checklist will guide you through packing an entire household while staying organized from beginning to end.

Inspecting items: It’s critical to inspect all items before you store them to ensure everything is 100% dry and free of moisture, mold, or mildew. One single damp item could spread mold throughout your storage unit, even if your unit is well protected from the elements or you’re paying extra for climate-controlled storage. Rather than leaving items exposed in your storage unit, wrap them individually with moving blankets or plastic wrap, or place them in plastic storage bins. This can prevent the spread of mold in case one of your items is damp or carries mold spores.

How do I pack and load a PODS storage unit?

If you’ll be keeping your storage unit on your property, that simplifies loading because you don’t need to prepare your items for transport. If we’ll be transporting your container to a storage center, your new home, or both, then check out our expert packing and loading tips and watch our video. You’ll learn how to maximize your storage space and secure your belongings to minimize the risk of damage along the way.

How far away can my storage container be delivered?

The geographic locations where your storage container can be delivered depends on the company, so be sure to choose a portable storage company that offers delivery where you need it.
With PODS locations across 46 U.S. states including Hawaii, as well as in Canada chances are we can deliver your storage container where you need it. Check our locations here, or call us at (855) 706-4758 to find out if we deliver containers where yours needs to go.

When should I use a portable storage unit?

If you want to maximize flexibility and control while minimizing stress, portable storage units are hard to beat. Depending on the storage company you choose, portable storage lets you store your stuff out of the way and keep it close on our own property or at a storage facility. When you’re ready, you can have it delivered where you need it, and when you’re done, you can have the empty container picked up and hauled away.

If you want to set your own pace and don’t want to drive a big truck or vehicle to haul your stuff to a self-storage unit, portable storage could be the right fit for you. The services and degree of flexibility — such as timing, storage center availability and access — will depend on your portable storage company, so be sure to ask plenty of questions. To learn more, see comparing PODS and self-storage.

How does PODS scheduling work?

You schedule dates for delivery and pickup for your portable container at the time you book your PODS order. While we do our best to accommodate your needs, delivery dates are subject to availability. To help get the dates you need, we recommend scheduling your storage container's delivery and pick-up as far in advance as possible. Keep in mind that Saturdays and the summer months are usually in highest demand, and deliveries are generally not made on Sundays. If you need to change your delivery or pick-up date, just call us. Your new date will be based on availability.

Remember that you don’t have to be present for us to deliver or pick up the container. However, if you’re not sure about where you want the container placed, you should be there to discuss the options with your driver.

Can I rent my storage unit month-to-month?

While most storage companies will offer rentals on a month-to-month basis, some may have lease requirements and charge penalties if you want to stop renting the storage unit before the end date of the commitment. Check with the companies you’re considering and get the rental terms in writing. If you’re using a special offer or discount, be sure to check if the offer requires a minimum storage time before you rent a space and move your stuff into storage. Some storage rental companies use introductory offers with deep discounts combined with long-term rental commitments to attract customers.

With PODS, all storage rentals are on a month-to-month basis, whether you’re keeping your container on your property or at a PODS Storage Center. There are no commitments beyond your first month’s rental, because we know how plans change.

Do I need contents protection for items in storage?

Since storage companies are usually not liable for lost or damaged items, you may want to consider getting contents protection, depending on the value of your items. However, if you have homeowners or renters insurance, you should check your policy first to see if it provides “off-premises” personal property coverage. If so, ask your insurance agent or company about your policy’s coverage limits and what types of perils are covered.

If your stored items aren’t covered by another policy, then ask the storage company if they offer contents protection. For example, PODS offers a wide range of coverage levels so you can decide on an amount that best fits your needs. For details on PODS coverage, see PODS Contents Protection options.

Why choose portable storage vs self-storage?

Most people make the decision to use portable storage because of the added convenience, flexibility, and control that it offers compared to self-storage. For example, you don’t have to drive a big truck or load and unload your stuff multiple times. Another benefit of on-site storage containers is you can use them for moving, too.

Whether you need to store your things short term or for several months, portable storage units are ideal solutions for:

  • Combining moving and storage, especially moves that involve uncertainty or require temporary storage
  • Home staging
  • Remodeling projects
  • Downsizing and decluttering

Depending on the company you choose, portable storage lets you store your stuff out of the way and keep it close on your own property or at a storage facility. But the options and degree of flexibility — such as timing, storage center availability, and access — will depend on your portable storage company, so ask plenty of questions and check customer reviews.

Questions to ask about portable storage:

  • Can the portable container be stored at a secure storage facility?
  • Can you access your container easily while it’s in storage?
  • How much time do you have to load and unload your container?
  • Are there different container sizes to choose from?
  • How weather-resistant and secure are the containers?
  • How far away can the containers be delivered? (This is an important question if you’re moving and want to have your container re-delivered to your next address.)
