Assuming you're moving about 50 miles and depending on the container size you select, the average price for renting and using a PODS container for moving is between $280 and $350, as of 2015. This figure may vary based on any additional options, such as accessories and insurance.
One thing to be aware of is that about half of the fee is a monthly payment. This means that if you're going to need your PODS container for more than 30 days, you'll be paying an additional $150 or so. Although it's been attracting more attention recently, PODS was originally created in 1998 as an expansion to a family storage business.
