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 & CapacityUNITS® 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 SystemOur 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 JobCompared 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.

This company is outstanding in assisting to meet your needs. Excellent Customer Service and follow up. I requested a 12 foot storage unit to be brought and left in place for clearing out the house for remodeling purposes. It was delivered promptly and the Technology was amazing. The truck never came on my property and the device was remotely maneuvered and placed exactly where I needed it. The technician was helpful and walked me through the operation of the doors and locking. It rained later that day and everything was perfectly dry inside. You wouldn't use anything else after your experience with this product and company. All I can is I love it!!!! Sherry LangRead More

The service I was given was absolutely outstanding. Not only did my Unit arrive on time but Dan was great! He provided a thorough demonstration and explanation of the Unit from A to Z after some slick maneuvering to place the Unit in the spot of my choice. Very clean with a fresh smell. I would highly recommend!
Everyone I dealt with was courteous, respectful, eager to please & answer questions. The unit was in perfect condition & met our needs. The whole experience was pleasant, positive, & easy to negotiate.Read More
