A new strategic alliance between the two franchise giants – PODS®, the leader in portable moving and storage, and 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, a full-service junk removal company, will offer special discounts and joint service solutions to residential customers and commercial businesses.

Residential customers looking to move, renovate or stage homes for sale have an easy and convenient way to move and store items they want to keep and gain assistance in throwing away the rest. Businesses opening new locations or renovating existing facilities can move goods, store securely onsite, and remove unwanted items using services from the two companies.

“PODS provides flexibility for moving and storing valuables you wish to keep and 1-800-GOT-JUNK? clears out the rest,” said Christine Pierce, Chief Marketing Officer at PODS. “Together we make big projects easier and less stressful for everyone.”

“The alliance of two recognizable brands offers customers of PODS and 1-800-GOT-JUNK? a solution for their moving, storage, and junk removal needs,” said Christene Best, Vice President Commercial Sales and Strategic Alliances at 1-800-GOT-JUNK? “We are thrilled to partner with PODS, a true industry leader.”

Corporately, PODS and 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will offer discounts to each company’s customers, work together on joint commercial solutions and seek ways to deepen existing third party partnerships. In local markets, franchisees can work together on marketing and joint solutions to promote business in their communities.
