Moving?

We can help simplify your move. Rather than move your things painfully in and out of trucks, making several trips in and out of storage facilities; simply move your things once into a Portable Moving and Storage UNIT. Then, UNITS® will deliver your belongings directly to your new location when you are ready to unload. Save half the work associated with traditional self-storage or half the cost of full-service movers – and we’ll do all the driving! This is a much better solution than compared to either of our competitors.

Need Storage?

Whether you just need storage, or need storage along with your move, we make it easy and secure. You can store your UNIT at your location for easy access of your belongings, or in our climate-controlled storage facility, which is staffed full-time and equipped with state-of-the-art security systems. Need to access your container to pull something out – no problem! This is a less stressful solution than compared to either of our competitors.

We specialize in servicing the business community (as well as government agencies), with long - and short-term storage capabilities and moving transportation.

If you're thinking "how will this help my business productivity?", we'll give you a few examples.

Let's say you're a real estate agent who often stages a home to enhance its sale potential.
