Reserving your moving container

Reserving A Container For Your Move

Once you decide that PODS is the moving company for you, the next step is to book your moving container, or containers. We have 3 container sizes to choose from, and you can mix and match to fit your needs. You can book online or by phone, and if you have any questions while you're preparing to move, we’re always here with answers.

Review and accept your rental agreement

It’s really important to review and accept your moving container rental agreement once you’ve booked your container. It will be available for review in your account. It’s important to note that customers must accept the terms of the rental agreement before PODS can proceed with container delivery.

How you will be billed for your move

PODS offers a simple billing cycle and payment schedule for our monthly moving container rental and pay-as-you-go services. For local moves, billing will be charged one day before your initial delivery or re-delivery. Monthly rental charges will be billed on that same date each month. Billing for long-distance moves is divided into 3 sets of charges, each of which is charged 7 calendar days before your service. Here’s how they are divided:

  • Initial Delivery and First Month’s Rent
  • Transit/Shipping Charges
  • Re-delivery Charges

As with local moves, subsequent monthly moving container rental charges will be billed on the date of your initial delivery or re-delivery.

Enjoy the convenience of autopay

Our autopay option is an easy way to make monthly payments, whether you’re storing your container at home or at a secure PODS storage facility near you.
