The Good

  • Moving Solutions 
  • Moving Resources

Location Coverage

The Bad

  • Undisclosed Prices 
  • Time in Business 

Undisclosed Prices

Unfortunately Pods does not disclose prices on moving containers, moving resources, or labor. You can request a free quote on their website by providing your contact information and details about your move. Prices on the moving resources, packing and unpacking services, moving labor and other resources is not disclosed as well. Knowing the prices that might cost you to move is a simple way to reduce stress and compare moving services near you.

Time in Business

Even though Pods is very unique and flexible solution to moving and storing, they haven't been in business as long as other moving companies. If you are looking for moving business with a more established reputation, Pods might not fulfill that qualification.

The Bottom Line

Pods is a flexible and smart moving solution that allows you to stay in control of your move and your stress. It is as simple as packing on your own schedule and leaving the driving to someone else. Pods is located in most of the states, as well as in Canada and Australia. You have the option to request additional moving resources if you need them; however, undisclosed prices will make it difficult to know how much your move will cost you and what additional fees you might face during your move.

We used Pods to store household goods when we sold our house and needed a place to hold our belongings until our new house was ready for us to move in. It was surprisingly easy to schedule delivery, placement, and pickup for the Pods because the scheduler was knowledgeable, pleasant, and patient with us, even when we had to reschedule when our closing date was changed. It was cheaper to use Pods for our move rather than using a regular moving company because we had to store our belongings for several months between moves.

We used PODS to move a few years ago and had a great experience with them. It was incredibly convenient and they were caring and flexible enough for our moving arrangements. The only downside is that their price has gone up over the years, but I guess that seems fair for a great service.

Our family friend sold her home quicker than expected and moved in with my mom while they waited for their home to be built. We rented her a Pods to put all her furniture in to have stored until it was ready to move into her new home. It worked out perfectly because she didn't have to move all of her belongings 3 times. Pods is the most convenient way to move and is such a great idea!

We used a Pod to help us get our house staged before a move. We had a garage full of storage and several items in the house that could be put away. We were able to have items stored until we moved into our new home a few months later. It was a convienent and helpful way to get two things done at once. And when they dropped it off at our new home, we had a few days to unload instead of having to rush. I have recommended Pods to all my friends who are moving.

Pods was something new and my wife and I decided to use when we sold our 1st half and was building our new home. They delivered the units to our home, picked them up and stored them until we moved into our new home. We were able to store thing in there that we normally wouldn't since they put them in climate controlled storage areas. I would strongly suggest thing company and the way of storing your things between moves. They were amazing to work with and I felt good with letting our family stuff go with them

When we built our house we used pods and it was so convenient. We had one come get our stuff to stage and then again when sled sold. It was stored until our house was ready and then delivered it to our driveway when we move in. Would use them again and again.

Great service for easy moving, but it's pricey. It was easy to plan my move and pod delivery and pickup times. My things arrived right on time and in good condition. Their pricing breakdown can be a bit confusing as they have separate charges for drop off, pickup, storage and moving. We lived in a rainy place a little rain leaked in the edges but our stuff was packed well so nothing was damaged.

When it is all over, I hope to give a good review since I sacrificed to get the POD and felt good about it as it would help me pack even though it's too hot to put half the crates in until just prior to shipping. I am renting it for a min. of 2 months - maybe a bit more. I still have to hope the POD arrives safely in Ohio when I call them; yet, I've called 3 times asking them to move it 2 feet since the very nice young man who delivered it and I did not realize my car needed more room to get by it. They would only move it for $186.00 which I can not justify paying with all on me. As a result, my car has been scratched (every time I go out) on one side and the top, and now, it will cost me a fortune to have my car painted. With 5 years of tragedy on me and a few rough years ahead (parents' deaths ending life for me since they were my world I adored, one flooded house 12 hrs. away, one hit by a hurricane, no life insurance, all 3 of our dogs died - one each year, and a severe spine injury), everything has gone wrong, so it is sad that this has happened with the POD.

Had to keep one of these Pods on our driveway for a few months and it was great! Loved how company just dropped it off in front of our house and moved it to our new house when we were ready!

Pods is simply the best way to move. You pack your own stuff when convenient. They they handle the move for you. They also have timely arrivals for delivery. All in all, they made it a great moving experience.

I currently have things in storage with PODS while I am in transition. I think the pricing is a bit high but I love the comfort of knowing my stuff is secure somewhere and I can ship it to wherever I land!

My thoughts on the pods.. Never seen nor heard of them until after hurricane Katrina came through on the Mississippi Gulf coast. Then I noticed everywhere pods!! Really allowed people to put there much love items into them. Keeps items clean and free of moister.

Moving my brother from OH back to PA, we didn't want to drive a big truck so far. Pods was an amazing alternative. Pack it up. They pick it up, and take it where you need. Awesome service.

Was hard to lock in a quoted price on the spot because I needed to speak to my husband so I didn't get that price and had to research and then get another quote. It was overpriced for me for the time I needed it but they were friendly.

Pods are very easy to use and allow you a little bit more flexibility with time to load your part up. I also liked the idea of not having to drive a big truck across multiple states.

When we moved from Ohio to Arizona, we used Pods because it was the best value for our money. All our belongings arrived in Arizona on time and in great condition.

The idea of having a pod dropped off to your house and you pack it, then when your done they pick it up and deliver is great. Customer service needs help with communication but overall a easy move.

I priced this out for a long distance move and the price was four times the amount of a different option.
