Climate Controlled Storage

PODS Storage Centers are clean, dry, and receive regular pest control treatment. Not all PODS Storage Centers are climate-controlled, but your PODS Customer Care Associate can advise you about the standards for your local facility. Although PODS containers offer excellent protection for your belongings, if you need to store your belongings for more than a few weeks, we recommend keeping your container at a PODS Storage Center for several reasons:


Reduce the risk of damage by the elements

Long-term exposure to high humidity, peak summertime temperatures, or freezing temperatures can damage belongings. Indoor storage at a PODS Storage Center provides extra protection from extreme temperatures and humidity. Storing in our facility also reduces the risk of water damage and exposure to pollen and other contaminants.

Reduce the risk of theft and vandalism

Unlike conventional self-storage facilities, where anyone at the facility can walk right up to the door of your storage unit, PODS Storage Centers are not open to the public; access to your container is available by appointment only. And unlike warehouses used by full-service moving companies, only you have the key to your PODS container to access your belongings.

Reduce the risk of damage by pests

Portable storage containers, when stored outdoors, can be susceptible to bees, wasps, ants, and other pests. PODS recommends that all items placed in our containers be boxed, wrapped, covered, or otherwise protected. Indoor storage at one of our PODS Storage Centers, which receive regular pest control treatments, provides extra protection.
