Compare Go Mini's to PODS and
Other Competitors

Containers from Go Mini's Moving & Portable Storage are designed with you in mind. Discover six ways we beat the competition to give you a better experience.


More Portable Storage Space

Go Mini's largest container has 29 percent more cubic feet of space than the largest container that PODS offers. This means that when you choose Go Mini's over PODS, you enjoy 235 more cubic feet of storage—enough to fit six love seats or another entire room of furniture! Go Mini's also offers a 20-foot unit, while PODS does not. In some cases, you would need to rent two PODS containers to move the same amount of valuables that you could move in just one Go Mini's container.


While most of our customers require only a single 20-foot unit to move their home, we do also offer 16-foot and 12-foot containers. However, even those units contain more cubic space than PODS' 12-foot and 16-foot versions. Based on internal container dimensions, a 16-foot container from Go Mini's offers 31 more cubic feet than a PODS 16-foot container, and a 12-foot container from Go Mini's offers 17 more cubic feet than a PODS 12-foot container. Some Go Mini's locations offer 8-foot containers, while some PODS locations offer a smaller 7-foot container. That's a lot of data to prove one simple fact: Go Mini's portable storage containers simply have more space than the competition. Our storage calculator can help you determine how much space you need.

More Storage Savings

Not only does Go Mini's offer more space, but we also offer more savings! Instead of renting multiple PODS containers, save money by renting one 20-foot portable storage container from Go Mini's. You will save on rental, storage, and delivery fees, paying less per cubic foot than when you rent from the competition. In addition, many Go Mini's locations will allow you to rent portable containers on a weekly basis, as opposed to renting for a full month.

Easier Delivery Options

Our delivery system requires only 6 inches of space on each side of the container, for a total of 9 feet in width. This allows us to place a container just a few inches from the edge of your driveway or just a few inches from a second container, maximizing your space. The PODS delivery system requires 2 feet on each side of the container for a total of 12 feet in width, taking up more space without adding any storage. Our delivery system also includes padded wheels that allow us to smoothly roll the Go Mini's container onto your driveway, protecting both your driveway and your valuables inside the storage container.

More Tie-Down Points

Go Mini's 16-foot containers offer 25 percent more tie-down points than PODS' comparable 16-foot containers. More tie-down points equate to more opportunities to secure your valuables, so they are safe on the road. For the best outcomes, load your container like you would load a truck. Don't just throw everything inside like you would with a stationary container. A special lift system is not enough. You must prepare your contents for riding on the open road, going up and down exit ramps, and withstanding stop-and-go traffic. Rest assured, however, that our excellent customer service team can advise you on the best ways to position and tie down your items. We also do the driving for deliveries and relocation of the container, so you can trust that your valuables will receive a safe and professional ride.

Local & Non-Corporate Owned

Each of our 200+ franchise and dealer locations is owned by a local or regional entity. Our locations are not fully or partially owned by a corporation. We believe that you should experience the accountability and oversight that a non-corporate owned business can bring. With a company like Go Mini's, your questions and concerns are addressed by a local portable storage specialist, familiar with the area's conditions.

Smooth Interior Storage

While competing portable storage companies have walls and support beams made from porous treated lumber, all Go Mini's containers are made of smooth, powder-coated steel. Wood-based materials run a higher risk of splintering or holding odor, but powder-coated steel is designed to greatly minimize odor, mold, and mildew when household goods rest up against them over a period of time. Some Go Mini's locations offer climate controlled containers, which are ventilated to reduce the moisture and humidity that contribute to mold and mildew.

With more storage, savings, and tie-down points, easy delivery, high-quality interiors, and local ownership, it's easy to see why Go Mini's Moving & Portable Storage is convenience in the form of a container. Whether you're moving, remodeling, or need portable storage for any other reason, Go Mini's clearly beats out the competition. Get a quote today!
