PODS has 145 locations in the United States, Australia, and Canada, consisting of 33 company-owned locations and 177 franchise locations. The Company delivers its specially designed storage containers to the customeraEUR(tm)s location, which the customer can load at his convenience. Once the customer has completed his packing in the container, PODS will either take it to another location or will place it at a storage warehouse, until the final destination for the moving goods is ready to receive them. PODS containers are moved by trucks that are equipped with the PodzillaA(r), a patented hydraulic lift system, specially designed so that the contents of the container do not shift when loaded onto a truck.
