Pack Rat Moving and 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 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

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.

How UNITS® Containers Compare to Pack-Rat®

Containers

Ground-Level Loading or Unloading
Secure, Lockable Containers
2 Sizes of Containers (12' & 16')
Equipped with ETRACK™ Securing System
Can hold up to 8,000 lbs
  • 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  You possessions are in good hands with this company. The well made storage units are not only sturdy, durable, and extremely well made. They're also equip with steel frame bars that have been slotted to fit buckle straps every couple feet. This makes strapping your belongings a breeze. As a professional mover for AAA Landon Movers this is the best mobile storage in my opinion as i have loaded and unloaded units as well as pods for various customers with the best experience being with units. The owner is very attentive, professional, and and will make sure your items will be moved with the same care as you personally would use. For a wonderful experience do not hesitate to call the amazing company!Read More

5  Very impressed with this service offering. The UNIT made our move from the Italian Village to New Albany such a breeze. Using a 16ft x 8ft UNIT for 30 days is essential for every move. Pricing is very reasonable and management stayed in contact with us throughout the entire process to make sure everything was going well. Definitely hire this organization!Read More

5  Using UNITS was the best decision we could have made with our move into our new home. The process was so easy, and the owner, Steve, was incredibly helpful & accommodating. Very reasonably priced, ample room for all of our belongings, and the team was on-time TO THE MINUTE for pick up & delivery. We absolutely loved not having to climb up and down a ramp when loading and unloading our unit. I'd recommend UNITs to anyone! Such a wonderful experience.Read More
