PODS Storage Container Dimensions

More recent measurements of the 16' PODS container are reported in a post here.

Many portable storage customers ask me what size a container is.  The sizes claimed throughout the industry are a bit confusing as all the providers offer fairly vague sizes or nominal dimensions.  PODS has two popular sizes of storage containers, a 12-foot version and a 16-foot version.  These sizes are a reference to the approximate overall outside dimensions of the container.  Outside dimensions probably don't matter to you unless you are trying to make sure you have enough room in your driveway for the box.  What really matters to you is probably how much stuff you can fit into the storage unit.  You care about the interior dimensions.  So here they are:

  • 12 feet long

  1. Thanks for posting these dimensions. Didn't find the easily on other sites. Wish there was a 3D planning tool to try out various packing scenarios. Maybe I need to build one ;)

    1. hi brian-speaking of useful information-i am using the 7x7x8 box-do you have internal dimensions for this one?

    2. Sorry I have never actually seen that size. I would assume the width and height are the same as in my new post from today, 7'7" wide and 7'7" tall. I am going to guess the depth is 6'10" or so. These are all interior dimensions which actually matter.

  3. Nominal interior v. clear interior dimensions... please clarify the difference. Does this have to do with the door opening?

  4. Nominal interior is always to the inside of the wall ignoring a limited amount of structural members within or protruding into parts of that interior space. Clear interior would be the smaller dimension that would be applicable if you had something large that would cause those posts or ceiling beams to be in the way of an item fitting inside the storage unit. Refer to a newer post about a 16 foot PODS unit here: http://portablestoragereview.blogspot.com/2013/11/pods-16-storage-unit-dimensions.html

  5. I want to get a storage pod like that for my back yard. We just had a storm come through and it destroyed my old shed. I would just use it as a storage shed for all of my gardening tools.
