A smarter way to move and store

Everything you need to know about us!

PODS in the UK is based in Manchester and operates out of a 30,000 sq ft warehouse five minutes outside the City Centre, which is where all of our PODS storage units and containers are kept. Our warehouse has a 24 hour security guard with a full CCTV system operating 24 hours a day 365 days a year. From our Manchester depot we deliver our storage containers all over the UK with our furthest trip so far being the Shetland Islands.

As well as our unique storage services, we also offer the more traditional removal service using our fleet of removal vehicles. All our removal teams are fully uniformed and trained to an industry high standard so whatever method you choose to move – whether it be with our PODS containers or with our traditional removal service you can be sure you are in good hands.

PODS History

Originating from Florida, USA, the first PODS operation opened back in 1998 by Peter Warhurst who was looking to expand his family’s standard self storage business. He invented the PODS Containers, as well as a hydraulic lift system which enables operators to easily deliver and transport the storage units. The lifting system was aptly named PODZilla.

PODS provides a unique containerised storage and moving service and because of it’s flexibility it can be used for a whole host of things from emergency storage, business storage, moving house, renovation storage and much more!

We have been making moving and storing more convenient and less stressful throughout the past two decades, making over two million deliveries worldwide and we currently have more than 45,000 containers in operation.

We put you in the driving seat – With PODS, you have control of your belongings and the whole process. Everything is done on your schedule. And no one has access to your things but you.
