The Best Local Customer Service

As a locally-owned and operated business, our store is managed by owners who genuinely care and are committed to simplifying our customers’ lives. Whenever you call UNITS® of Houston, you’ll speak with friendly and well-informed staff who understand the Houston area and can assist you in obtaining exactly what you require when you need it. We are local residents who take the time to understand each customer’s needs to provide the finest customer service possible. This is something you won’t find at a U-Haul® call center.


The owners of UNITS® of Houston are dedicated to providing the most competitive pricing in the Houston area. As a result, our average moving and storage costs are typically lower than U-Haul®. See for yourself – request a quote from us today and compare it to the U-Haul® quote. You won’t be let down! UNITS® has no hidden charges.

All Steel Construction

UNITS® containers are designed to be sturdy. They feature all-steel construction, robust steel frames, and secure steel doors. Our containers are the most weather-resistant on the market – no need for a tarp. In contrast, U-Haul® containers are made from wood, adhesive and staples. You’ll only find this level of quality at UNITS® of Houston.

More Interior Space and Capacity

UNITS® containers are spacious, and thanks to our distinctive door design, our smallest container (12′) can accommodate 511 more cubic feet of space than U-Haul® containers. Additionally, our 16′ UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage containers can hold up to 400% more weight than equivalent-sized U-Haul® containers!

ETRACK™ Securing System

Our containers come equipped with the ETRACK™ securing system. We recognize that items can shift during moves due to varying terrain, unlike U-Haul®. Using our strap and restraint system, also known as ETRACK™, your belongings will remain in place!

One Container Does the Job

In comparison to U-Haul®’s U-Box, you’ll only need one of our containers to store the contents of multiple rooms, including furniture. With U-Box, you’d require several containers for the same task. Our 12′ containers can accommodate up to 4 rooms, an entire basement, or large items like patio furniture and dining room tables. Our 16’ are perfect for large family relocations, keeping supplies on hand at a jobsite, or first responders. With our containers, UNITS® of Houston can do what the others can’t.

Container Delivery Re-Invented – UNITS® of Houston ROBO-UNIT®

The ROBO-UNIT is our innovative delivery mechanism, enabling us to place containers in even the most confined spaces in Houston while ensuring level loading and unloading. This approach significantly minimizes any movement of the container's contents and offers increased adaptability in container positioning when dealing with limited space. 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®.
