How Do 10ft Steel Storage Containers Compare to PODS?

PODS are a great option for that moving house or redecorating and needing to store their smaller household items. PODS are cost-effective for a short amount of time and can easily fit in most spaces.

PODS are delivered to your chosen address, loaded, and moved to the new destination when customers request. Some PODS services also include removalists, meaning you can pay to have someone load the household items for you.

If you need more time to store your belongings but need the POD moved off-site, they can be stored at a convenient PODS location.

Both PODS and containers have fast delivery options (depending on availability).

Where PODS are a reasonably secure storage design, 10ft shipping containers are much sturdier than PODS due to their strong steel manufacturing.

Shipping containers also come in a broader range of sizes compared with PODS and may suit those needing to transport goods further interstate or out of state where PODS are not guaranteed to keep goods secure from the elements.
