to PODS

Local: DMV owned and operated, we believe in the mobile storage revolution against expensive and inconvenient traditional self-storage and moving. We are fanatical about creating on-demand, customized, and flexible storage and moving solutions for our customers. Because we are not a franchise or a large national corporation, we can provide a customized service at a competitive price that the others simply cannot match.

  • Locally owned and operated – we answer the phone here in the DMV
  • On-demand, customized, flexible customer service
  • Next day and Sunday delivery available
  • Affordable – we save you money!

Precision delivery system: Our state-of-the-art technology allows us to fit where our competitors don’t and can deliver a container wherever a car can be parked. Hello DC, Arlington, and Bethesda!

  • PODS: Requires 12 feet in width, 15 feet in overhead height, and 40 feet in length (about the length of 2 parking spaces) for them to deliver a container to you. Many times, a POD simply won’t fit in front of your house or apartment. In a parking lot, you must reserve 3 consecutive spaces side-by-side for pick up or deliver - good luck in this area. We can fit into 1 space.
  • Packrat: Requires 13.5 feet of height clearance free from obstruction, 12 feet of width clearance, and a total length of approximately 55 feet (almost the length of 3 parking spaces!), for the driver to position the truck for offloading.
  • Our Mule can lift over 5,000 lbs and move over 10,000 lbs.

Best containers and container variety in the industry: The only mobile storage company with both 8’ containers, a game-changer for the tight spaces inside the Beltway, and 20’ containers, the preferred size for onsite storage, contractors, and our business customers. Our 16’ containers are also rated to carry over 7,400 lbs, at least 1,400 lbs greater than Packrat and well over 3,200 lbs greater than PODS.

The U-Box by U-Haul utilizes a wood box, as do some other companies. Even for temporary onsite storage, these can be susceptible to the elements and break in. The wood boxes are more easily get damaged in transit or while loading, and eventually their doors do not even close tightly. These services also tout their economic pricing; however, these containers are much smaller than ours and once you add up the cost of renting several of these, any savings is often lost.
