Self 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 Self Storage.

What really sets UNITS® ahead of the rest, including Self Storage, 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).

How UNITS® Services Compare to Self Storage

  • The Best Local Customer Service

    Our locally owned and operated stores are run by owners who care, and are dedicated to making their customers lives easier. Every time you call one of our locations you will be speaking with friendly and knowledgeable staff who know your area, and can help you get exactly what you need – when you need it. Try to get that from a self storage call center.

  • Pricing

    UNITS® pricing varies from market to market – but our owners strive to offer the most competitive pricing in their respective markets. Because of this, our average cost of moving and storage is typically far less than Self Storage. But you decide – get a quote from us today – and then compare our quote apples to apples with the Self Storage 0quote – you won't be disappointed! UNITS® doesn't have any hidden fees – PERIOD.
  • Long Term Contracts? No Thanks!

    UNITS® provides month to month agreements vs. multiple months or even year to year agreements that storage and other self-storage facilities try to lure you into to store your belongings with them! We like to keep things short and sweet with our contracts, no gimmicks needed.

How UNITS® Containers Compare to Self Storage Facilities

Containers

Self Storage Facility

Weather-Resistant, Steel Containers
Tightly Sealed against Pests
Ground-Level Loading or Unloading
2 Sizes of Containers (12' & 16')
Secure, Lockable Containers
Side-by-Side Doors Allow Maximum Packing Space
  • One Move. One Time.

  • With UNITS® you don't have to worry about double or triple packing, truck rentals, or loading and unloading! One pack does it all and no extra rentals are needed for trucks that you would have to drive! UNITS® containers are delivered to you and picked up again at your location. No driving necessary.
  • Built Tough

    UNITS® containers are built tough. Our containers feature steel construction (with Morgans and Supremes as FRP sides), tough steel frames, and steel doors that make our containers the most weatherproof containers on the market. Storage® storage units lack some of this construction.

  • More Interior Space & Capacity

    UNITS® containers are large and spacious – in fact because of our unique door design we can actually fit more cubic feet of space than some Storage storage units can.

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.


*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  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

5  Highly recommend UNITS! Received online quote super fast. Made reservation over the phone. Everyone I worked with were super friendly. They call in advance before arrival and were right exactly on time! The delivery was as described, dropping off the unit where I wanted it with the door facing the house. The unit was very clean. Will use UNITS again.Read More
