How Much Do PODS Moving Containers Cost?


PODS moving containers are a popular way to move locally or across the country. Need more info about PODS and how much they cost, as well as alternatives to PODS? Let’s go over what you should know about this moving method.

What Are PODS And How Does It Work?

PODS is a moving container service that drops off a special box or “pod” at your home at a pre-arranged date. Then, you fill-up the PODS moving container with all of your stuff, and it’s picked up and shipped to your new home.

You won’t get any moving assistance from PODS, so you and your friends or family will need to load up the storage box on your own. PODS is a popular choice for people who are moving but may not want to rent a truck for their DIY move.

How Much Do PODS Moving Containers Cost?

According to PODS, it usually costs between $349 to $549 for a local move. For a long distance move, it costs $999 to $2,999. This fee includes a month of storage, and will vary depending on how far you’re moving, your timeframe, and whether you choose a 7, 12, or 16-foot PODS container.

Are There Other Options For Moving My Stuff?

If you want to move your stuff on your own, you can rent a truck or a van and load it up yourself, then drive it to your new home. This may be a better option for some people who want to save with DIY moving.

Your other option is to hire a moving company like Three Men And A Truck. The big advantage of doing this, compared to using PODS, is that you don’t have to load or unload your stuff on your own.

Instead, you’ll get the help of a few strong, experienced, and knowledgeable movers who can load and unload your stuff safely. This saves you the effort of moving stuff on your own, and the headache of finding friends or family members who can help you load or unload your PODS container.

In addition, we offer full-service moving at Three Men And A Truck. In this method of moving, we don’t just load and unload your stuff – we’ll pack it up at your old home and unpack it at your new home, too! This makes things even easier for you.
