The Best Local Customer Service

Our locally owned and managed stores are operated by people who care about their customers and aim to make their lives easier. When you call one of our locations, you’ll speak with courteous and knowledgeable personnel that are familiar with your region and can assist you in obtaining exactly what you want – when you need it. Try to get that from a U-Haul® call center.


The UNITS® pricing varies by location, but our owners try to offer the most cost-effective solutions in their areas. As a result, our average moving and storage costs are frequently lower than U-Haul®. But you decide – get a quote from us today – and then compare our quote apples to apples with the U-Haul® quote. You won’t be disappointed! UNITS doesn’t have any hidden fees – PERIOD.

All Steel Construction

UNITS® containers are built tough. Our containers feature all steel construction, tough steel frames, and steel doors and are the most weatherproof containers on the market. No tarp necessary. U-Haul® containers are made of wood, adhesive, and staples.

More Interior Space & Capacity

UNITS® containers are large and spacious – in fact because of our unique door design our smallest container (12′) can actually fit 511 more cubic feet of space than U-Haul® containers can. On top of that, our 16′ UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage Containers are able to hold up to 400% more by weight than the same sized U-Haul® containers!

Etrack™ Securing System

Our containers feature the ETRACK™ securing system. Unlike Pack-Rat®, we acknowledge the fact that items can sometimes shift during moves due to differences in terrain. Using our strap and restraint system aka ETRACK™, your items will stay put!

One Container Does The Job

Compared to U-Haul’s U-Box, you would only need one container that can store multiple rooms, furniture and all, whereas you would need multiple U-Box containers to do the same job.

Container Delivery Re-Invented – UNITS® Robo-Unit

The ROBO-UNIT is our specialty delivery mechanism, that allows us to deliver containers to even the tightest of locations while also providing a level container for loading and unloading. This system greatly reduces any shift in container contents and provides greater flexibility in container placement when space is an issue. Our ROBO-UNIT can lift 7,000 pounds and move up to 10,000 pounds. NO OTHER Moving and Portable Storage Company has the ROBO – not even U-Haul®.
