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).

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. Try to get that from a Pack-Rat® call center.

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

  • 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 used units when we had a month in between moving out of our old house and into our new. Tom was very understanding and flexible when we had to change up our schedule because of the buyers. The customer service from Units is the best anyone can ask for. I definitely recommend them over anyone else.Read More

5  We highly recommend using UNITS. They are locally owned and operated. The owner Tom is responsive, has best prices and is fair. Much better than working with another company who has a call center in a different state. Do not hesitate working with this exceptional company! Tamera & AlanRead 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
