Pack Rat Moving and Storage Comparison

Compare UNITS®to Pack-Rat

Our customers from the Phoenix area 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 Pack-Rat®.

What really sets UNITS® ahead of the rest, including Pack-Rat®, 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).

  • More Capacity

    UNITS® containers are large and spacious just like Pack-Rat® containers, but one thing sets us apart from Pack-Rat® containers – our 16' UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage Containers are able to hold up to 25% more by weight than the same sized Pack-Rat® containers!
  • Etrack™ Securing System

    Our containers feature the ETRACK™ securing system. Unlike Pack-Rat®, 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!

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 Pack-Rat®.


*ROBO-UNIT is not available in all markets.

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  Excellent service! I had a unique moving situation (and was slightly stressed about it) and called the first storage company that popped up to check out options. Tom, the owner, was amazing. He talked me through his companies services and how he could help in my situation. Tom sent the agreed upon contract to me via email, and I was able to sign it electronically. The pod was delivered and picked up when scheduled, and Rich, the deliverer, was awesome. Tom and Rich's customer service was amazing. I can't recommend this company enough.Read More

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
