One of our primary goals at UNITS® of Kansas City is to provide the most competitive pricing in the area. Our owners are committed to offering the best prices, and our average cost of moving and storage is typically lower than U-Haul®’s. We guarantee transparent pricing, and there are no hidden fees with UNITS®. If you obtain a quote from us today and compare it to a U-Haul® quote, you’ll notice the difference in pricing. We aim to make the process of moving and storage affordable for everyone.

All Steel Construction

UNITS® containers are renowned for their all-steel construction. Our containers are built tough, with steel frames and steel doors, making them the most weather-resistant containers available. Unlike U-Haul®’s containers made of wood, adhesive and staples, our containers are of superior quality. At UNITS® of Kansas City, we prioritize providing our customers with the best and most durable containers on the market.

More Interior Space and Capacity

Our containers are known for their spacious interior and capacity. The unique door design of our smallest container (12′) can hold 511 more cubic feet of space than U-Haul®’s containers. Moreover, our 16′ UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage containers can hold up to 400% more by weight than the same sized U-Haul® containers. When you choose UNITS® of Kansas City, you can rest assured that you’re getting the most storage space for your money.

ETRACK™ Securing System

At UNITS® of Kansas City, we are proud to offer the ETRACK™ securing system. We recognize that items can sometimes shift during a move, and our strap and restraint system, ETRACK™, prevents your belongings from moving around. Unlike U-Haul®, we take extra precautions to ensure that your belongings are safe and secure during transport.

One Container Does the Job

When compared to U-Haul®’s U-Box, our containers are a superior choice. With our containers, you only need one to store multiple rooms of furniture, while you would require several U-Box containers to do the same job. Our 12′ containers can accommodate the contents of up to four rooms, an entire basement, or large items such as patio furniture and dining tables. Our 16′ containers are perfect for large family relocations, jobsite storage, or first responders. At UNITS® of Kansas City, we strive to offer our customers the best and most versatile containers available.

Our ROBO-UNIT delivery system offers greater flexibility in container placement when space is an issue, making it easier for us to deliver your container exactly where you need it.
