Why Use UNITS For Your Moving & Storage Needs?

We are local owners who have lived in the bay area for over 20 years. We work hard to understand each customer’s unique situation so that we can provide nothing less than exceptional service!

  • Good Old-Fashioned Customer Care
  • Superior Quality of our Portable Moving Storage Containers
  • We’re price competitive

Moving?

We can help simplify your move. Rather than move your things painfully in and out of trucks, making several trips in and out of storage facilities; simply move your things once into a Portable Moving and Storage UNIT. Then, UNITS will deliver your belongings directly to your new location when you are ready to unload. Save half the work associated with traditional self-storage or half the cost of full-service movers – and we’ll do all the driving!

Need Storage?

Whether you just need storage, or need storage along with your move, we make it easy and secure. You can store your UNIT at your location for easy access of your belongings, or in our climate-controlled storage facility, which is staffed full-time and equipped with state-of-the-art security systems. Need to access your container to pull something out – no problem!

 

Our Story

"In 2008, Donna & Rick decided it was time to leave corporate America and try something new. We had moved over 10 times in our lives and remembered the stress, hassle, and work that came with each move. We thought that portable storage was a great solution for reducing the pain of moving. And, since we are both service oriented people, we thought we could add a level of empathy and accommodation by providing a personal touch to those in the throws of moving or in need of temporary storage. So, we built a customer experience that begins with answering our phones personally (no answering machines or call centers) and includes listening to our customer's needs, offering experience-based advice, and managing an ultra-responsive delivery schedule.

We believe that there is inherent value created by providing what we like to call, 'good ol' fashioned customer care' - the kind you may remember in your past, but rarely see in today's marketplace (that doesn't mean we're not price competitive, we are!).

Our highly-qualified team members have also been hand-selected to ensure that they also have the 'customer care' DNA.

Our Commitment to the Community

We show our commitment to service and the community by helping local organizations who help those in need. Here are just some of the organizations that UNITS has supported in our community: Open Heart Kitchen, Shepherd's Gate, One Warm Coat, Little League Baseball, Relay for Life, Girl Scouts, Contra Costa Food Bank, local churches and schools.

Our Customer Reviews

We believe that the best way to understand the difference between those companies in the portable storage market is to read what their customers are saying. In other words, don't believe what we (or they) say, take it from those that have used our service and have chosen to write a review. We're so confident that you will be impressed, that we provide links to all the major independent review sites in hopes that you will go and see for yourself. Below are just a few reviews, but we encourage you to go and read them all!

What Our Customers Say About Us
Christina G.

Christina G.
5  We hired UNITS to help us with our storage needs during our months-long move out of the Bay Area, and Rick, Donna, and their team were absolutely wonderful every step of the way! They answered every question without any pressure, stayed in clear communication with us throughout the entire process, and offered a competitive rate that was worth every penny. They helped us coordinate the best timing for having the storage pod delivered to our new home in the way that would save us the most money, provided an excellent recommendation for a moving company that could best meet our needs for loading and unloading the unit, and delivered truly outstanding customer service at every level, from the office staff to the drivers. I would highly recommend UNITS of Livermore. Thank you, Rick and Donna!Read More

5  Highly recommend UNITS! Received online quote super fast. Made reservation over the phone. Everyone I worked with were super friendly. They call in advance before arrival and were right exactly on time! The delivery was as described, dropping off the unit where I wanted it with the door facing the house. The unit was very clean. Will use UNITS again.Read More

5  It was a Friday morning...PODS had completely screwed me, canceling my delivery without notifying me and unable to get me a POD for over a week. Only problem is I had 4 more days to move. I called in a complete panic! Donna was amazing. She could very well have said I was crazy to think they could do something in my unreasonable time frame. But she didn't. I called at about 10 am, had a unit AT MY HOUSE by 1130 am. The driver was the best ever. All the while my panic was slowly disappearing. This company is truly about customer service. They go above and beyond in order to see their customers get what they need. I will forever use UNITS for my storage and moving needs. Thanks again Donna!!Read More

5  The UNITS crew are tops in my book. They were helpful and patient in explaining the process in full. There were no surprises just did everything they promised and exceeded our expectations. Prompt arrivals with communication along the way. We moved onto a court and it was tight for a truck to maneuver. They use a separate motorized tug that the driver operates by remote control. Very efficient and dropped the pods right on the spot. We had forgotten a couple of items that we needed to retrieve prior to our delivery date. They had the unit down and ready to enter by the time we got there. I highly recommend these guys for any temporary move.Read More
