How PODS works without a driveway: City Service

We come to you

PODS brings your sturdy, steel-framed portable container on a truck to your location.  The container stays on the truck, so no driveway is needed.

You load/unload the container

A hydraulic lift, operated by our driver, allows for convenient ramp-free loading. It carries you, your helpers, and your belongings to and from your container.

We keep an eye on your things for you

Our drivers stay with your container as you load and unload it. If you want help loading and unloading your container, we can refer you to local packing and loading professionals. 
 

We take care of the driving

No need to drive a huge rental truck through busy city streets. PODS takes care of the driving to your new home or one of our 240+ storage centers.
