Budget Self-Pack Containers — What You Need to Know

 In Moving, Storage

It’s no secret — moving home, whether that be interstate of regional, has always been viewed as a hassle and companies aren’t short of offering solutions.

Finding the best one for your needs, however, isn’t so easy. And when it comes to something as crucial to your move, making the right decision is the difference between a “yeah — that went smoothly” to “what an absolute nightmare”.

We at AUSPODS understand this, and that’s exactly why we’ve put so much effort into providing you with one of the market-leading self-pack containers1Podzilla.


4 Reasons Why PODS® isn’t a Standard Budget Self-Pack Container

Sure, most budget self-pack containers will get the job done, but why settle for second-best? Find out about the fantastic features that set PODS apart from the competition.


Pack Your Stuff — On Your Terms

Whether you’re moving house or simply in need of a reliable means of moving goods, it’s a process that’s jam-packed with stress. As a result, the last thing you want is the added pressure of packing against a deadline weighing down on your shoulders.

With AUSPODS, lack of time is never going to be an issue. In fact, with us, it’s quite the opposite. Whether you’re a prompt packer or not, it doesn’t matter, because you choose the time frame. A day, week, a month — it’s up to you. Just let us know when you need your container dropping and picking up and we’ll get it to you, giving you that added much-needed breathing room. It couldn’t be simpler.


Premium Security Protection

We don’t cut corners with quality, and that’s certainly no different with our security.

PODS budget self-pack containers are crafted from specially designed aluminium panels, with reinforced steel sturdily supporting the inner frame. Nobody’s getting in through those sides. In fact, the only way they will get in is through the front door, and you’re the one with the key to that. When you choose PODS, you can sleep sound with the peace of mind that your goods are safe.

Your container will also be stored within our secure PODS storage centre and is strength-tested to resist winds up to 170km/h when partially filled, so you don’t have to worry about the weather getting at your precious goods either.


Struggle for Room? PODS Have Plenty

Your PODS container is built to fit around your requirements, no matter how big or how small. Our containers are clean and spacious and designed to make it easy for you to load and unload and get the most for your money. Items like mattresses, tables and couches will typically take up space without adding a lot of weight.

They come in 3 sizes, each designed to help you get your stuff packed up and on its way without it being a tight squeeze.

Short or long-term, we offer a self-storage solution that works around your requirements.

    We are hoping to leave Townsville in August, we have a 3 bedroom average home.
    We will be travelling ( holidaying ) to Tasmania then moving into our new residence.
    If we pack our pod, do I understand correctly that you store it in one of your depot, then move our gear to Tasmania after we get there approximately 1month later.
    Any idea of costs would be great.

      Hi Debbie, yes, you have the idea of how we work correct but unfortunately we aren’t able to provide a service between Townsville and Tasmania.

  • Phil

    So you provide a moving service between Sydney and Tasmania?

    • Lisa Gerding

      Hi Phil,
      At this stage we don’t go to Tasmania, I would recommend contacting Chess Removals they could certainly assist you.
