Pack Rat Moving and Storage Comparison

Our customers tell us all the time – UNITS® Customer Service, Fast Friendly Service and Competitive pricing are second to none when we are compared to our competition including Pack-Rat®.

What really sets UNITS® ahead of the rest, including Pack-Rat®, is our locally owned and operated facilities. When you call us, you aren't routed to a call center across the country – you are calling a local facility, with owners and employees who know your area, can answer all of your questions, and who care more about your moving and storage needs than ANYONE (except maybe you).

Try to get that from a Pack-Rat® call center.

  • Pricing

How UNITS® Containers Compare to Pack-Rat®

Containers

Ground-Level Loading or Unloading
Secure, Lockable Containers
2 Sizes of Containers (12' & 16')
Equipped with ETRACK™ Securing System
Can hold up to 8,000 lbs
  • More Capacity

    UNITS® containers are large and spacious just like Pack-Rat® containers, but one thing sets us apart from Pack-Rat® containers – our 16' UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage Containers are able to hold up to 25% more by weight than the same sized Pack-Rat® 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 proprietary strap and restraint system aka ETRACK™, your items will stay put!

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

The ROBO-UNIT is our proprietary delivery system which allows us to deliver containers to the tightest of spaces, while also providing level loading and unloading of your container. 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 Pack-Rat®.


*ROBO-UNIT is not available in all markets.

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

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  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
