Long-Distance Solutions Built Around You

Long-distance moving made easier

Portable containers are ideal for local moves, whether you’re moving down the street or across town. PODS makes it easy with storage built into every move. That means whether you move all in one day or over the course of several, you can take as much time as you need to get settled in your new home.

Downsizing before your move to Evanston

Remodeling? Decluttering? Need some storage to prepare for an upcoming move? We’ll deliver a container to your home, then you either keep it in your driveway, or we’ll transport it to one of our secure Storage Centers where you can access it at any time. And when you’re ready we will pick it up and deliver it wherever it needs to go.

Affordable & easy home staging

If you’re staging your home for sale before moving across town and need to reduce the clutter, you can always use a PODS container to store the things you don’t want. Once the house is sold, we’ll bring your unit back so you can load the rest of your things. When you’re ready to go, we’ll move it all to your new place. Now that’s efficient!

Uncertain or complex moves

Are you sure about your closing date but unsure about your move-in date? Then built-in storage and flexible scheduling are just what you need. Whether you need more time looking for a new home or are finishing up home renovations, we'll deliver your essentials to a temporary apartment in Evanston and store the rest at a secure Storage Center nearby.

PODS is your best Evanston moving option

If you are in Illinois or the US in general and are looking for a great city to put down your roots in then Evanston might make a great option for you.

If you are looking for a great new home for yourself, your family, or your business, then Evanston could be just the place for you!

When you make your move to Evanston with PODS, you get a personalized experience with expert support.
