The independent voice of the global moving industry


PODS Joins The Alliance of Independent Movers

Jul 06, 2015
PODS, the Manchester-based containerised removal and storage company, has joined The Alliance of Independent Movers.

The PODS concept was originally established in 1998 in Florida, USA. The Manchester operation – the first in the UK – began trading in 2010.

Unlike a conventional removals service, customers are provided with a special PODS container, which they can fill themselves at their own pace, or use PODS professional packing service.  When ready, the container is collected using a specially equipped vehicle - affectionately called a ‘Podzilla’ - and taken either to the customer’s new home or to the PODS storage facility. 

PODS’ Managing Director Scott Cassidy said, “We wanted to join AIM to ensure we are providing the best possible service for our customers.  It’s great to have expert advice from other industry professionals and to share ideas. We hope to grow and expand the PODS business throughout the UK and establish relationships with other members of AIM.”

AIM founder Scott Rust said, “I am very pleased to welcome PODS to the Alliance and look forward to working with Scott and his team to help them build on their success in the future.”

The Alliance of Independent Movers was created to assist removers of all sizes to grow and expand their businesses while offering their customers a high level of service. For the mover with limited resources, or even larger more established businesses, AIM offers a wide range of benefits, including training services and lead generation.
