U-HAUL® 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 U-Haul®.

When you call us, 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 U-Haul®

  • 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.

  • 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 U-Haul® storage. But you decide – get a quote from us today – and then compare our quote apples to apples with the U-Haul® quote – you won't be disappointed! UNITS® doesn't have any hidden fees – PERIOD.

2 Sizes of Containers (12' & 16')
Secure, Lockable Containers
Side-by-Side Doors Allow Maximum Packing Space

  • All Steel Construction

    UNITS® containers are built tough. Our containers feature all steel construction, tough steel frames, and steel doors and are the most weatherproof containers on the market. No tarp necessary. U-Haul® containers are made of wood, adhesive, and staples.

  • More Interior Space & Capacity

    UNITS® containers are large and spacious – in fact because of our unique door design our smallest container (12') can actually fit 511 more cubic feet of space than U-Haul® containers can. On top of that, our 16' UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage Containers are able to hold up to 400% more by weight than the same sized U-Haul® containers!
  • Etrack™ Securing System

    Our containers feature the ETRACK™ securing system. Unlike U-Haul®, 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!
  • One Container Does The Job

    Compared to U-Haul's U-Box, you would only need one container that can store multiple rooms, furniture and all, whereas you would need multiple U-Box containers to do the same job.

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 U-Haul®.


*ROBO-UNIT is not available in all markets.

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

5  Excellent customer service and very convenient. They coordinated delivery and pickup within 24-48 of calling. They setup the unit in the exact spot requested and leveled it which made it very easy to load and unload. They returned any phone calls and followed up the day before delivery to confirm everything. The rates were similar to utilizing a U-Haul and renting a the size storage unit.Read Kyler B.'s review of UNITS Moving & Portable Storage on Yelp">Read More

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
