PODS Moving and Storage

The maximum weight limit for our containers are:

  • 7’ Container = 5,200 lbs
  • 12’ Container = 4,700 lbs
  • 16’ Container = 4,200 lbs

Customers do not have to calculate their content's weight, so the weight limits should be used as a guideline when packing the container.

If you're concerned that you may be approaching the maximum weight, pick out your heaviest items and look for comparable items online. Most retail websites will list the weight of their items. The total weight of your heaviest items shouldn't exceed 75% of the total allowed weight.

Heavy items to consider are appliances, sofas, large entertainment centers, bookcases, bedroom chests, safes, exercise equipment, pianos and pool tables.
