How PODS city Service works

A PODS driver brings your container on a truck at your scheduled time and remains with the container for 4 hours. This gives you, or any professional help you may hire, time to load or unload. If you need more time, no worries, we invoice by the hour (after 4 hours). When your container is loaded and ready to go, we can:

  • Take it back to a secure PODS Storage Center and keep it there for as long as you like.

  • Deliver it to your new home, whether it's across town or across the country.

The benefits of PODS city service


We do all the driving

Driving a huge rental truck through busy city streets can be really stressful. PODS City Service takes care of all the driving so you don’t have to. In most cases, we also find our own parking and handle any permits or HOA requirements.

Reduce risk while loading and unloading

Your PODS driver stays with your container as you load and unload it, defending against tickets, thieves, and any other threats to your belongings.

Local expertise

Our team of local drivers knows your city’s streets, as well as local regulations regarding parking and loading, which helps keeps surprises to a minimum.

Perfect solution for moving or storing in the city

Flexible moving and storage solutions

Not ready to move in yet? No problem. We can store your container in one of our 250 secure PODS Storage Centers across the country until you’re ready for it.

Easy loading and unloading

PODS City Service trucks are equipped with a level-load lift system operated by your certified PODS driver. This heavy-duty, hydraulic lift-gate keeps all your items level during loading and unloading. You don’t have to struggle going up and down a ramp.

PODS can refer you to the packing and loading professionals at Moving Staffers, who will do as much, or as little of the heavy lifting as you need. Call them today at 1-866-667-5594.

Customer reviews: PODS city service

Matthew G., NYC

“The city service in NYC was amazing. It made moving out as easy as it could have been.” 

Christopher T., Brooklyn

“The driver who brought the PODS container to me in Brooklyn was the best ever!!!!! Not easy moving into a one way street on a busy sat afternoon. He helped move traffic, block off access so I could work more efficiently, and had my back as some New Yorkers are very difficult to deal with. He was professional and courteous and deserves a raise after what we both had to deal with for that hour. He is a keeper when it comes to customer service.” 

John A., NYC

“Friendly customer service. Everyone we dealt with was extremely positive and helpful. We set this up at the last minute and it went incredibly smooth - We have moved ALOT, this was the very best!”
