How do steel shipping containers compare to PODS?
The largest nationwide portable storage company is PODS (Portable On Demand Storage). While both PODS and Western Container Sales offer nationwide portable storage rentals, there are some key differences.
Primarily that PODS’ containers are smaller, lighter units that are made from a combination of steel, fiberglass, aluminum, and plastic, and designed to be moved while loaded. In contrast, our rentals are re-purposed used shipping containers (all steel construction, with wood floors over steel cross members).
Overall, steel shipping containers are a larger and heavy-duty alternative to standard PODS storage containers. PODS now offers an all-steel 16 ft container.
PODS will move loaded containers, we won’t.
While Western Container Sales offers steel storage containers in sizes up to 40′ in length, PODS offers smaller, 8′, 12′ and 16′ storage units with aluminum and plastic exteriors, in addition to a 16′ all-steel container option. Steel shipping containers are difficult to load/unload without the heavy equipment found at ports and depots, but PODS units are small enough to be easily managed with light duty lifts. Western Container Sales does not move loaded units, so if you need your container moved after it’s loaded PODS or similar companies might be a better option. However, if you need storage at your location we offer larger, all steel containers. Our cost per square foot is almost always lower, as well.
