Self Storage Comparison

Self Storage Comparison

Our customers 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 Self Storage.

What really sets UNITS® ahead of the rest, including Self Storage, 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).

How UNITS® Services Compare to Self Storage

  • The Best Local Customer Service

    Our locally owned and operated stores are run by owners who care, and are dedicated to making their customers lives easier. 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 self storage 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 far less than Self Storage. But you decide – get a quote from us today – and then compare our quote apples to apples with the Self Storage 0quote – you won't be disappointed! UNITS® doesn't have any hidden fees – PERIOD.
  • Long Term Contracts? No Thanks!

    UNITS® provides month to month agreements vs. multiple months or even year to year agreements that storage and other self-storage facilities try to lure you into to store your belongings with them! We like to keep things short and sweet with our contracts, no gimmicks needed.

How UNITS® Containers Compare to Self Storage Facilities

Containers

 
Weather-Resistant, Steel Containers
Tightly Sealed against Pests
Ground-Level Loading or Unloading
Weather-Resistant, Steel Containers
2 Sizes of Containers (12' & 16')
Secure, Lockable Containers
Translucent Roofs are Optional
Side-by-Side Doors Allow Maximum Packing Space
  • One Move. One Time.

  • With UNITS® you don't have to worry about double or triple packing, truck rentals, or loading and unloading! One pack does it all and no extra rentals are needed for trucks that you would have to drive! UNITS® containers are delivered to you and picked up again at your location. No driving necessary.
  • Built Tough

    UNITS® containers are built tough. Our containers feature steel construction (with Morgans and Supremes as FRP sides), tough steel frames, and steel doors that make our containers the most weatherproof containers on the market. Storage® storage units lack some of this construction.

  • More Interior Space & Capacity

    UNITS® containers are large and spacious – in fact because of our unique door design we can actually fit more cubic feet of space than some Storage storage units can.

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.


*ROBO-UNIT is not available in all markets.
