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?).

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.
