One Container, Complete Convenience

Compare Go Mini’s® to PODS®

Discover What Makes Us a Step above the Rest

Containers from Go Mini’s® are designed with you in mind. Discover six ways we beat the competition to give you a better experience.

More Portable Storage Space

We are proud to offer a 20-foot unit, while PODS® does not. Our largest container offers 29% more cubic feet of space than the largest container PODS® offers. This means that when you choose Go Mini’s® over PODS®, you can enjoy 235 more cubic feet of storage – enough to fit six love seats or another entire room of furniture! In some cases, you would need to rent two PODS® containers to move the same amount of valuables 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 the 12-foot and 16-foot units PODS® offers. Based on internal container dimensions, our 16-foot container offers 31 more cubic feet of space than a PODS® 16-foot container. One of our 12-foot containers are specially designed to offer 17 more cubic feet than a 12-foot container from PODS ®. From the material our containers’ walls are made of to how we designed the doors to close, every detail of Go Mini’s® containers is customized to make storage as convenient and cost-effective as possible for you. Some of our locations offer 8-foot containers, while some PODS® locations offer smaller 7-foot containers.

That's a lot of data to prove one simple fact: Our containers offer 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, you can save money by renting one 20-foot portable storage container from us. You will save on rental, storage, and delivery fees, paying less per cubic foot than you would with our competitors. In addition, many of our locations allow you to rent portable containers on a weekly basis, as opposed to having to rent for a full month.

Top Four Reasons We're Better

  • Easier Delivery Options
  • Nicer Containers
  • More Space
  • Bigger Savings

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 container onto your driveway, protecting both your driveway and your valuables inside the storage container.

More Tie-Down Points

Our 16-foot containers offer 25% more tie-down points than PODS®' comparable 16-foot containers. More tie-down points equate to more opportunities to secure your valuables, making them safer on the road. For the best outcomes, load your container like you would load a truck. If you are planning on transporting your unit, it’s important to 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 all of the driving for you, so you can trust that your valuables will receive a safe and professional ride.

We’re Local & Not Corporately Owned

Each of our 200+ 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 of a business that’s not corporately owned. With a company like Go Mini’s®, your questions and concerns will always be addressed by local portable storage container specialists who are 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 of our containers are made of smooth, powder-coated steel. Wood-based materials run a higher risk of splintering and 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 of our locations offer climate-controlled containers, which are ventilated to reduce the moisture and humidity that contribute to mold and mildew.

With more storage, savings, tie-down points, easy delivery, high-quality interiors, and local ownership, it's easy to see why Go Mini’s® is the most convenient choice for all of your storage needs. Whether you're moving, remodeling, or need portable storage containers for any other reason, you can count on us to deliver.
