Compare the Cost of PODS® to U-Pack

If you’re looking for a containerized moving option, and you’ve done some research, you’ve probably discovered that the two companies most often compared are PODS® and U-Pack. The services are fairly similar (drop a container off at your home, you load it, it gets picked up and moved to your new home), but there are few important differences. And in a lot of locations, one of the leading differences is cost—which means the big question is “How much does PODS® cost compared to U-Pack?

It’s a great, legitimate question.

But, because prices differ so much throughout the country, giving a “ballpark” cost isn’t possible (bummer, I know). You can easily get quotes from both companies and compare, though.

Does your PODS® rate seem a little high?

If you’ve seen PODS® containers around town, you’ve probably found yourself thinking that they look like such a convenient way to move – much better than a renting a huge rental truck for a cross-country move (because who wants to drive, right?). It looks like they would fit just perfectly into a driveway or in front of a house, and they sit close to the ground so moving things in and out would be super easy. But then you get the rate... and you reconsider.

Looking for something similar to PODS® but less expensive?

There’s no question that PODS® is an excellent concept; a container is delivered to your door, you load it, and it’s picked up and moved to your new location. You can’t beat that for convenience. But sometimes the price tag is just a little more than a tight budget allows, and sometimes PODS® just isn’t able to deliver to your location. That gets folks looking for PODS® alternatives. If that’s the boat you’re in, let me introduce U-Pack® a “you pack, we drive” service that may be exactly what you’re looking for.
