PODS, known initially as Portable on Demand Storage, changed the moving and storage industry in 1998. We pioneered the concept of portable storage containers, allowing our customers to conveniently store and access their belongings right in their driveway. We also introduced the world to PODZILLA®, our revolutionary hydraulic system, which enables our certified drivers to maneuver containers on and off our trucks while keeping customers’ belongings level.
PODS was founded in Tampa Bay, Florida, and has since expanded to over 46 states. We are committed to providing our customers with the best possible moving and storage experience, and we are proud to be a leader in the industry with +25 years of experience, + 6 Million Moves, and over 50 awards in 2023.
