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

Self Storage Facility

Weather-Resistant, Steel Containers
Tightly Sealed against Pests
Ground-Level Loading or Unloading
2 Sizes of Containers (12' & 16')
Secure, Lockable Containers
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.

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

5  UNITS moving and storage was amazing! The house we were moving into fell through so I needed affordable moving and storage last minute. They were punctual dropping off the pod and they were able to maneuver the unit right in front of my house in the tight streets of German Village. It was very helpful for the movers. They picked up the unit the next morning, so that we were not a burden on our neighbors in terms of parking. I love that they worked with our timeline and the unit was super clean and sturdy. Plus, our stuff is being stored in a climate-controlled facility safely. I would definitely use them again! Pod storage is much easier for moving between places for us, but the other companies were too expensive. We are happy we found this 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  Very impressed with this local company. The unit itself is very clean and secure. Steve, the owner has spectacular customer service and was present upon delivery. In comparison to other companies I have no worries with my items being stored inside, sits on steel platforms and an air tight unit. The price was also the best with comparable companies in the area. So happy we decided to choose Units.Read More

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
