Founded in 1998, PODS operates by delivering a storage container to its customers’ location, which the customer packs themselves or hires hourly labor to pack and/or load. The units can then be stored at a warehouse or delivered to another location. The units and warehouses are a mix of corporate and local franchisees (75% of locations are company-owned).
Now an industry leader, PODS provides residential and commercial services in 43 states in the United States, as well as in Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. To date, the PODS network has completed more than one million long-distance moves, four million initial deliveries, and has more than 220,000 PODS containers in service.
