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.

What Our Customers Say About Us

5  When we began our move saga back in October, I did a lot of research on PODS, 1-800-PackRat, U-haul, etc. After reading some Yelp reviews, I decided to give Sacramento, UNITS Moving & Portable Storage a try by getting a quote from them. Tyler was extremely helpful every step of the way...the price was slightly higher than what PODS and PackRat had quoted me, but something made me continue on with UNITS Sacramento and I am SO SO SO happy I did. We had to move out of our house in 4 days, Tyler helped make that happen. We got a 16' unit delivered and found that our house stuff didn't actually fit in that unit and we didn't have enough boxes! In a panic I called Tyler to ask if he had some other units, and he found a 12' and got it delivered that very same day with more boxes even though he had a truck in the shop and was short on time. It was an absolute lifesaver! On the backside of this move 2.5 months later, I called Tyler to have my units delivered and he got everything timed perfectly. The first pod arrived with the movers arriving right after to help us unload and then the second pod arrived just as the first was emptied. When the second pod was unloaded, Tyler was able to send someone to pick it up and we didn't have a thing to worry about anymore. I can't say enough positives about my whole experience with UNITS, Sacramento. I am sure that the other companies probably wouldn't have been able to jive with what ended up being a touch and go situation on my side of the moving saga. If I ever have to move again (hoping not for a long, long time), you can bet I will be using these guys again. The peace of mind and ease of use was well worth the price I paid! Thank you Tyler and team for your wonderful attitudes and work!Read Christy J.'s review of UNITS Moving & Portable Storage on Yelp">Read More

5  VERY happy with service and the storage unit. I had to move from one house to another but there was a 3 month period that I had to wait while the other house was getting ready.  Tyler had the unit at my old house ready to go in the morning.  It was very easy to fill since it sits on the ground (not 2-4 feet in the air like a truck).  And since I was renting it by the month, I could take my time loading it.  The unit was clean and the floor was in pristine condition.  He brought 20 (high-quality) moving blankets as well.  I called to have it picked up 2 days later, and off it went.   When I called Tyler 3 months later to deliver, it was no hassle.  They delivered it Saturday morning and my son and I were able to unload it in a couple of hours.  They picked up the unit on Monday (I was at work, so no hassle there). I will say again, I was VERY HAPPY with my rental with Units.  I just wish all companies worked this way.Read L. H.'s review of UNITS Moving & Portable Storage on Yelp">Read More
