PODS VS. MOVING TRUCKS

COMPARE PODS TO U-HAUL, BUDGET & RYDER

Moving is stressful enough without having to drive a huge rental truck. And when you add fuel costs, insurance, and food and lodging along the way, renting a truck can be more expensive than you’d think. And if you’re just moving some stuff into a storage facility, a rental truck makes even less sense. 

PODS offers a number of advantages over renting a U-Haul, Budget, or Ryder truck. See how our moving services and storage solutions compare against top truck rental companies.
 

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING AT RENTAL TRUCKS

PODS moving and storage

We do the driving

Driving a big rental truck sucks! It can be really stressful and more expensive than you’d think, especially for long-distance or one-way moves. And if you’re renting a truck just to drive stuff to a traditional self-storage unit, you can spare yourself a lot of time and hassle by using PODS, since storage and driving are both built into the solution. 

With a PODS container, we drop it off, you load it, then our professional drivers pick it up with PODZILLA to bring it to a secure PODS Storage Center. And when you need your stuff again, we bring the container back to you and you unload it. So we do all the driving!
 

STORAGE IS BUILT-IN

What if you're move-in ready but your new home isn’t? No problem! We can store your container at one of our 230 Storage Centers for as long as you need.

With a rental truck, you have to pick up the truck, drive it home, load it, drive it to the facility, unload it, then return the truck. And to get your stuff out of storage, you have to repeat the whole process in reverse.

Whew! See what we mean?
