The Best Local Customer Service

UNITS® of Houston Gulf Coast is a locally owned and managed business, run by people who care about their customers and are devoted to making their lives easier. Every time you contact UNITS® of Houston Gulf Coast, you will be speaking with courteous and knowledgeable staff who are familiar with the Houston Gulf Coast region and can assist you in obtaining exactly what you want. We’re local residents that get to know each customer on a personal level in order to provide exceptional customer service. U-Haul’s® call center offers nothing similar.


Our goal at UNITS® of Houston Gulf Coast is to always offer the most competitive pricing in the area. This allows us to keep our average cost of moving and storage significantly lower than U-Haul®. But don’t just take our word for it – get a quote from us today and compare it side by side with a U-Haul® quote! We’re confident that you’ll be pleased with what you see. And unlike some companies, we don’t have any hidden fees – period.

All Steel Construction

All of our UNITS® containers feature steel construction, frames, and doors. They’re also the most weather-resistant containers money can buy — no tarp necessary. Containers from U-Haul®, on the other hand, are made mostly of wood held together with adhesive and staples. You won’t find this level of quality anywhere else except at UNITS® of Houston Gulf Coast.

More Interior Space & Capacity

Our UNITS® containers are huge and roomy, with the smallest one (12′) able to hold 511 more cubic feet than a U-Haul ® container can. In addition, our 16′ UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage Containers are capable of holding 400% more weight than the same sized U-Haul® containers!

Etrack™ Securing System

At our company, we utilize the ETRACK™ securing system for all of our containers. This is to ensure that none of your belongings move or shift during transport — unlike U-Haul®. With our straps and restraints, you can be guaranteed that your items will stay right where you put them!

One Container Does The Job

U-Haul’s® U-Box system would require multiple containers to store the contents of what one of our UNITS® containers can hold. For example, our 12’ container can store everything from 4 rooms worth of furniture and belongings to an entire basement or large patio furniture. If you’re moving a family or need supplies on hand at a worksite, then our 16′ container is perfect for you! With UNITS®, we provide a much more efficient storage solution than any of our competitors.

Container Delivery Re-Invented – UNITS® Robo-Unit*

The ROBO-UNIT is a delivery mechanism through which we can transport containers to the tiniest of spots on the Houston Gulf Coast, as well as level loading and unloading of your container. When space is restricted, this process greatly reduces any shifting in container contents and increases flexibility regarding container placement. 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-UNIT – not even U-Haul®.
