How does Go Mini’s compare to a POD®.
First off, Go Mini’s portable storage unit come in three different sizes and our largest unit at 20’ is bigger than anything offered by PODS®. Unlike PODS® and other portable containers that rest on the ground, Go Mini’s rest on poly coated steel castors so they are 8″ off the ground and avoid contact with ground water during inclement weather. Our container is specially designed for moving and storage, so loading and unloading is an easy process.

Switched From Pods to Go Mini’s
I just wanted to let you know how much my business has appreciated our relationship with Go Mini’s since we switched from Pods last year. With you being local, I don’t have to wait to get a box when we need one fast. Being in the disaster recovery business, our customers can’t wait for a week when the washer hose breaks. Your Go Mini’s has always been quick to help us out when we needed it.
When I first looked in to switching from Pods it was mostly due to price and Go Mini’s pricing was better. What I did not expect was the great service improvement we have seen by your being local and so customer oriented.
Now there are new people in Jacksonville, Pack Rat and Units, who have been calling trying to get our business away from Go Mini’s. Even though they are offering price discounts and even free boxes, we won’t switch. Your consistent service and pricing and helpfulness have made us a loyal Go Mini’s customer. Keep it up and we’re staying where we are.”
