HOW MUCH DOES A PODS CONTAINER COST?
Moving and storage can be expensive – but with PODS, it doesn’t have to be. Whether you are looking to move to a new house or store your belongings, renting a PODS container can save you big bucks compared to hiring a professional moving company or renting a self-storage facility. Let’s break down exactly how costing works with PODS.
What does it cost to move with a PODS container?
PODS containers are one of the most cost-efficient and common-sense ways to move house. To get a price, you’ll first need to figure out (with our help) what size, and how many containers you’ll need.
Our containers come in three sizes as shown below, making them suitable for any moving job, small or large.
Renting a small PODS container starts from $169 per month. This container size is ideal for a studio or 1-bedroom apartment. For a “standard” 3-bedroom home, we would recommend our largest container, which starts at $289 per month. For families with a large four- or five-bedroom home, you would likely need two large PODS containers.
That being said, the number of PODS containers you need really depends on how much stuff you have – you might live in a large home but enjoy a minimalist lifestyle, or perhaps you’re more like our own Office Manager Lisa, who’s confessed to being a hoarder of many things.
The overall cost of your booking with PODS will also depend on where you are moving to, whether that’s a few suburbs away or moving interstate, and whether you also need longer-term storage. If your move takes weeks or months, as some moves do, you are able to store your container in one of our storage centres for as long as you like. Depending on the position of your drive-way, if a container is not able to be placed securely, then additional charges may also apply.
Additionally, you might like to consider purchasing packing boxes and supplies, locks and our content protection program, which will also increase your overall quote.
Either way, when you speak to our friendly customer service team, they’ll be able to delve further into your specific needs and provide you with the recommended size, quantity and the total cost of hiring a PODS containers for your move.

What if I need two large containers, but I don’t have enough space in my front yard?
No problem! We understand that not every property has the right clearance for end to end placement (that’s 3.8m width and 4.6m in height, with no steep inclines, low branches or wires) so if you require multiple PODS we can stagger the delivery times of your containers. We’re flexible on pick-up and delivery dates too, for your convenience.
What does it cost to hire a PODS container for self-storage?
There are many benefits to hiring a PODS containers for both long-term and short-term storage. When you choose PODS for self-storage, there are two options – you can keep the container onsite at your property, or store it in one of our secure local storage facilities around the country. The cost will depend on which option you choose, your location and the amount of time you require the container.
If you are only requiring storage for a short period of time, it’s convenient to have the container delivered directly to your location. Storing a PODS container on your property starts from just $145 per month.
For a longer-term storage solution, we’d recommend taking advantage of our secure storage facilities, which also start at $145 per month . PODS also offer Contents Protection, which will give you piece of mind in knowing that your belongings are protected for as long as you need.
If you need extra storage space for an upcoming event, you might also consider hiring a PODS container for a festival, school fete, marathon or more.
