Is your PODS® rate too high?
If you’ve seen a PODS® container around town, you may have thought they look like a convenient way to move—much better than driving a huge rental truck across the country . They fit perfectly into a driveway or in front of a house, and they sit close to the ground, so moving things in and out seems super easy. But then you request a quote and see the price…
If you’re moving long distance and your PODS® rate is higher than your budget allows, check out U-Pack!
It’s a similar "you pack, we drive-type" service, where a container is dropped at your home, you load it, and we pick it up and drive it to your new home, but the price often compares to truck rental.

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.
