PODS (Portable on Demand Storage) and UniGroup, Inc., the parent company of United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit, have agreed to a marketing alliance that provides for the exchange of services between leaders in portable container moving and storage and full-service moving.

The agreement provides UniGroup access to PODS' fleet of 138,000 moving and storage containers serviced by 166 franchise and corporate locations. In exchange, PODS gains access to professional packing and loading services through the network of United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit agents with nearly 750 locations across the country.

"UniGroup is pleased to enter a marketing alliance with PODS, the largest portable container moving and storage services provider," said Rich McClure, president of UniGroup, a leader in the full-service moving industry. "This alliance will enable UniGroup and its family of United and Mayflower agents to offer residential and corporate customers a complete range of moving and storage services – from full-service professional moving to do-it-yourself container services.”

Tom Ryan, CEO of PODS, said, "PODS has experienced tremendous growth in the moving and storage industries due to the flexibility and convenience of our services. Traditionally, we’ve appealed to the do-it-yourself moving and storage customer, but our agreement with UniGroup will enable PODS’s customers to access packing and loading services that many of our customers want from the most trusted names in the business – United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit."

The alliance with PODS will expand the capacity and efficiency of Mayflower and United agents within the portable container marketplace and ensure the van lines’ customers have access to a range of moving options to fit their needs. UniGroup entered the portable container moving and storage market in 2006 with its brand SAM – Store and Move. The SAM network of 92 dealers in 65 cities in the United States will continue to provide portable containers under the new agreement.
