Our Storage vs. PODS® Storage
When it comes to self-storage, Box-n-Go Storage units offer a tremendous flexibility and convenience for storage and moving when compared to PODS®.
In both cases, Box-n-Go and PODS® storage container is delivered to you. You can pack on your own pace. There is no need to rent a truck and handle the belongings multiple times. However, unlike PODS®, our containers are sized with you in mind. They accommodate about 1½ rooms of furniture and belongings. PODS® container is much larger. It’s important to understand how these size and other differences can affect your storage experience.
In order to better assist you in your decision, we have prepared the table below that summarizes the differences between Box-n-Go and PODS® as well as offers you a quick glance at the advantages offered by Box-n-Go storage units.
Please see for yourself how we stack up against PODS®:
|Box-n-Go Offers you Convenience and Value When Compared to PODS®
||PODS® Enterprises, Inc
|Affordable. When you compare us to PODS®, you will find Box-n-Go services are very competitively priced compared to those of PODS®. Box-n-Go offers a scalable storage solution: order as many delivered as you want, pay only for the ones you use!|
|Fast Delivery. In most cases, Box-n-Go is able to deliver an empty unit to you same day or the next,. If you need several units – no problem. We can deliver! Its a different case with PODS®|
|Maneuverable. Unlike PODS®, Box-n-Go Storage pod can easily be placed near your house or just about anywhere from the driveway to the backyard. Box-n-Go storage pods only take up a parking space, which makes it easy to find a suitable location for them to make the packing easy and save you time!
Large sized storage containers like PODS® and others with a specialized delivery system cannot, in most cases, be delivered and placed close to the house. With a large container storage concept (such as PODS® or Mobile MINI), the size and delivery methods for such a container prohibit the delivery and placement conveniently near your home or on sloped surfaces.
|Neighborhood Friendly. Each of our container is sized right to meet you individual needs. Making it perfect for the urban neighborhoods, condominium and apartment complexes and any place where parking is at a premium.
Even the smallest PODS® container is too large for the individual needs. The large sized PODS® container will require more than one parking spot which may translate into an inconvenient placement further away from your apartment complex as well as unhappy neighbors.
|Efficient Delivery. Unlike PODS® our large trucks can deliver up to 4 storage units at any one time without any extra cost to you. You can order as many storage units delivered to you as you wish and pay only for what you actually use. With PODS® you can only take delivery of one container at a time. So, if you need more storage space you will have to be around to accept additional container deliveries as well as to pay the additional delivery fee.|
|Cost Effective Storage. With our storage unit size you can utilize the storage space more efficiently. You will only pay for the units you end up using and will not have to pay for the extra space that you did not fill up with your belongings. Even the smallest PODS® are 40% bigger than our units. With PODS® you will be paying for the entire storage unit, whether you pack all of it or not. This could mean that you are paying for the space you are not using!|
|Easy to Organize. Our storage units are sized right: 5’x8’x7’tall. Each is designed to accommodate about 1½ room of furniture and belongings. This makes it is very easy to separate and pack the items you are planning on storing. For example, you can separate your good, high value and delicate furniture from smelly and dirty garden tools, barbeque grills, bicycles, etc. Also, many people like to keep their belongings separate for one or two rooms to make loading or unloading into a new home easier.
Large size containers like PODS® and others will force you into storing ALL your belongings inside one large container.
|Easy to Access. A smaller storage unit makes it easier to logically sort through and separate your items while packing. So, when using our storage units, you can quickly and easily find any particular item you have stored. The same task is much more difficult and time consuming finding an individual item when everything is packed in a much larger PODS®-type “all in one” mobile storage container.
You no longer need to empty the entire large storage unit (like PODS® or other large units) to find an item packed all the way in the back.
|Belongings Safety. Smaller size storage units can be packed tighter which will help to avoid damage from shifting while in transit. Large containers such as PODS® make it very difficult to load properly. They often require hold down straps be installed inside to prevent the items from shifting should the container be partially filled. Unless the unit is properly and tightly packed, the items may and will shift in transit, resulting in damage to your belongings.|
