Portable Storage News by UNITS Storage page 1

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 U-Haul®.

What really sets UNITS® ahead of the rest, including U-Haul®, is our locally owned and operated facilities. When you call us, 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 U-Haul®

  • 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.

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

How UNITS® Containers Compare to U-Haul®

Containers

2 Sizes of Containers (12' & 16')
Secure, Lockable Containers
Translucent Roofs are Optional
Side-by-Side Doors Allow Maximum Packing Space

  • All Steel Construction

    UNITS® containers are built tough. Our containers feature all steel construction, tough steel frames, and steel doors and are the most weatherproof containers on the market. No tarp necessary. U-Haul® containers are made of wood, adhesive, and staples.

  • More Interior Space & Capacity

    UNITS® containers are large and spacious – in fact because of our unique door design our smallest container (12') can actually fit 511 more cubic feet of space than U-Haul® containers can. On top of that, our 16' UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage Containers are able to hold up to 400% more by weight than the same sized U-Haul® containers!
  • Etrack™ Securing System

    Our containers feature the ETRACK™ securing system. Unlike U-Haul®, 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!
  • One Container Does The Job

    Compared to U-Haul's U-Box, you would only need one container that can store multiple rooms, furniture and all, whereas you would need multiple U-Box containers to do the same job.

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 U-Haul®.


*ROBO-UNIT is not available in all markets.

What Our Customers Say About Us

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

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  After having issues with a certain other company. I found Units online and called right away. Not only was Tom accommodating, but friendly and professional. We were able to get the storage container in a timely manner. They were on time for both delivery and pickup at both my old home and new one. His driver Rich is also very helpful! I would recommend them to anyone who is thinking about moving. Thanks again!Read More
