About Us

A smarter way to move and store.

Everything you need to know about us! PODS is a franchise business and was started in the UK by Scott Cassidy, managing director of Swift Moving and Storage Limited. PODS originates from Florida, USA. The first PODS operation opened back in 1998 by Peter Warhurst who was looking to expand his family’s standard self storage business. He invented the PODS containers, as well as a hydraulic lift system which enables operators to easily deliver and transport the storage units. The lifting system was aptly named PODZILLA.

PODS have been making moving and storing more convenient and less stressful throughout the past two decades, making over two million deliveries worldwide and we currently have more than 45,000 containers in About Us truckoperation.

The UK operation runs out of a 30,000 sqft warehouse five minutes outside Manchester City Centre, which is where we store all of our storage containers. The warehouse has a 24 hour security guard with a full cctv system operating 24 hours a day 365 days a year. From our Manchester depot we deliver our storage containers all over the UK with our furthest trip so far being the Shetland Island.
