PODS ® and United Mayflower's Interior
PODS ® Container Interior vs. United Mayflower Container Interior

United Mayflower Container Services - A difference you can appreciate

United Mayflower portable moving and storage containers were designed to the specifications of the moving professionals at United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit to benefit you, the consumer. Our customers praise the superiority of our containers  for storage vs. other containers such as PODS ® and Pack Rat ®.

 

"I like United Mayflower containers much better than those of PODS ®. Their containers are higher quality and have better attach points inside the container to secure the load down. They also have better frames which don't flex."
 
- Ken J.
 Mill Creek, Ariz.

 

Delivered to your location - Your United Mayflower container is delivered to your house or business. You specify the date and time and we'll arrange to get it there. You don't even have to be present. It's that easy.

Smooth interior walls - Every United Mayflower container features smooth walls to make loading your belongings much easier.

Translucent roof - United Mayflower portable moving and storage containers were designed to the specifications of the moving professionals at United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit to benefit you, the consumer. Our translucent roof material maximizes the amount of natural light in the container, an important feature when loading or accessing your belongings in the container outdoors without artificial lighting. One of the most preferred features is our translucent roof!

Flush-mounted tie-down rings - Every United Mayflower container features strategically positioned flush-mounted tie-down rings throughout the container for an extra measure of stability when loading and tying-down your goods. The flush-mounted feature allows you to position your furniture and boxes so your moving container is unobstructed for continued easy loading.

Online pricing - You can easily determine the costs to rent a United Mayflower moving container for a local rental, a long-distance move or for storage. And, you don't have to provide any of the personal information required by PODS ® or Pack Rat ® to obtain a storage rate.

No hidden fees - When shopping for portable containers, make sure you are getting the complete picture! We confidently display the total comprehensive price for container rentals for both storage and moving while competitors such as PODS ® and Pack Rat ® require you to either call for rates or show only part of the cost you will need to pay unless you click on additional sections to add services to the total price. Compare United Mayflower to PODS  ® rates.

Manage your services online - It's easy to manage your storage container rental online. Just login to edit your event dates, review your billing, view your agreements or use one of our moving resource tools.

16-foot containers - When comparing our prices with others, make sure the comparison is for a similarly sized container. For example, when looking at competitors such as U-Pack ®, be sure to note the length of their container which is less than half the size of one of our 16' containers.

Online space calculator - Planning a rental for your moving or storage needs is simple with United Mayflower Container Services' online space calculator. The calculator helps you determine how many containers are recommended for your moving or storage needs.

One call - It's simple to arrange all of your moving or storage needs from United Mayflower Container Services. In one simple phone call you can rent your container, book professional packing and loading services and buy packing supplies. No transferring, no other connections, just one call. You can't receive this level of service from PODS ® or Pack Rat ®.
