STEP 5: Loading your container
Loading your container
Now the fun begins! Start loading your PODS container. It’s sturdy, steel-framed and weather-resistant, so your stuff is well protected. And because our containers are ground level (with no ramp to climb!), it’s a lot easier to load heavy boxes and furniture.
Take a load off
Need help loading your stuff? Or with packing? We have connections! We’ll refer you to trusted packing and loading companies in your area who can help with whatever you need — however little or much. They’re experts in maximizing space in PODS containers and minimizing the risk of damage. Interested? Be sure to schedule their arrival date at least one day after your container arrives. Find a Local Packing and Loading Company.
Take your time
PODS works with your schedule! Our containers are rented by the month, so you can take all the time you need to load and unload. Need more time? More container space? No problem. We can deliver additional containers or extend your container rental with a simple phone call to PODS Customer Care at (855) 706-4758.
Lock it up
You can use your own lock to secure your container or purchase one from PODS. Either way, you can rest assured that no one else will have access to your container. Please note that if you’ll be moving your container later to a storage facility or another property, we require loaded containers to be locked for pick-up.
Round-the-clock access to your stuff
How’s this for convenience? You can get to your stuff anytime you like. With the container right in your driveway, so you’re free to access it anytime.
