5  I highly recommend Units Moving and Portable Storage. We used them to store our extra "stuff" while our house was listed for sale. So easy to use them, just called and they came and dropped off the unit right away. Picked it up promptly for storage and when we were ready to get it back had it to us right away. Everything was just as we had packed it, nothing damaged or moved around. Easy easy!!! Thank you, Tom!Read More

5  I work for a restoration company and every once in awhile we will need a container to store a customers contents. We called a competitor first (our mistake) and they could't come out for almost 4 days. We decided to call Units and I spoke with Tom, the owner, directly. We requested a container for the next day and he said he could even get it out there the same day if we needed. We did actually need it ASAP but I had low expectations due to the other company being so behind. Tom had a container delivered the same day!! It was a unique situation where the customer lived in an apartment so placing the unit was difficult. He made it seem like it was nothing! His unit was small enough to only take up one parking spot (all the association would allow us). We needed him again the next week and he had a unit delivered within an hour this time. He is just amazing to work with and QUICK. He has raised my expectations for how business should be performed. Plus, his units are way nicer than competitors. I have more confidence in using Tom than anyone else. Great work, Tom!Read More

5  Great company that provided good service for my storage needs. Tom is very personable and Rich placed the unit on my driveway exactly where I wanted it. One suggested improvement is to add a drip cap over the doors so water on the roof from rain would not leak on the floor when opening the doors.Read More
