1-800-PACK-RAT  vs.  PODS® Rentals

1800 packrat vs PODS mobile storage unit rentals

1-800-PACK-RAT and PODS® both offer portable storage solutions and warehouse
locations across the United States. However, 1-800-PACK-RAT offers a level of customer
service and quality that PODS® just can’t match.

100% customer satisfaction guarantee

Container Construction
1-800-PACK-RAT containers have all-steel walls, frames and doors and are the most weatherproof containers on the market. PODS moving containers are constructed of wood with steel beams, aluminum skin and vinyl semi-transparent roofs.

Furniture Blankets and Security Lock
At 1-800-PACK-RAT, the safety and security of your belongings is a top priority. That’s why we provide 20 professional furniture blankets and a no-cut security lock with every long-distance move. A pod rental from PODS does not include these items in their rental cost.

100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee
We are so proud of our employees and their dedication to customer service that we offer you a 100% satisfaction guarantee. A PODS rental does not include a similar guarantee.

More Interior Space
Unlike PODS storage units, 1-800-PACK-RAT’s storage units are constructed completely of corrugated steel with no wooden beams. Their interior support beams (found on most PODS storage containers) and roll-up doors take up about 30 cubic feet of valuable packing space, while we can offer our customers the best packing value for their dollar.

PODS® Pricing vs. 1-800-PACK-RAT Pricing
So how much do PODS cost compared with 1-800-PACK-RAT's moving containers? Most people find that despite all the additional benefits 1-800-PACK-RAT provides, we can still offer lower rates than PODS pricing.
