How UNITS® Works

  • We deliver a portable storage container to your house or business. Instead of going to your storage unit, the storage unit comes to you.
  • You put your belongings into the container. You go at your own pace — two days, two weeks, or two months — whenever and as your schedule allows.
  • When finished, you call us back and we will pick up your container. If it is full, we will drive it to your new home or office or back to a storage facility near Sea-Tac Airport for safekeeping until you're ready for it to go to its new destination.

Why UNITS® Is the Best Mobile Storage Product for Seattle 

We serve Seattle, Bellevue and the Eastside, and Tacoma, including all communities which surround them all the way from Shoreline and Woodinville in King County to Lakewood and Bonney Lake in Pierce County.

  • Superior Container Design: In Seattle, we only use containers that are optimized for the Seattle weather. Every UNITS® container in Seattle is constructed 100% from high-quality steel and features a barn-style door design to prevent the onset of moisture and mold. In contrast, other portable storage providers offer containers that are made of wood, covered with tarp, or have roll-up doors whose tracks are detached from the container walls and thereby increase the risk of water and mold penetration. As a result, our containers are also much harder to break into than our competitors’!
  • Revolutionary Delivery Technology: We are bringing the latest generation of UNITS® delivery technology to serve our Seattle customers. Your container will be loaded and unloaded on our trucks using a remotely-operated robotic mini-forklift which ensures that your belongings are always level with the ground and can be efficiently maneuvered into the tightest spots on the streets and parking lots of even Queen Anne, Madrona, or Belltown.
  • Flexible High-Touch Service: Unlike many of our competitors, we haven’t yet grown up to be a multi-national company. So we don’t block certain days like Wednesdays when we don’t deliver in Seattle. We don’t nickel-and-dime our customers with fuel surcharges or admin fees. We don’t have a call center in another state or country, and we don’t have to check with our manager or talk to another manager who has to then talk to the person who can actually get what you want done. Because we are smaller, we try harder - as in that famous car rental commercial. When you call us, you will always talk directly to the person on the ground in Seattle who can solve your issue. We promise!

We also use unique robotic mini-forklift technology to place your UNIT practically anywhere a car can go. And because we live in the same community as our customers, we are very easy to deal with and can give immediate turnarounds.

Give us a try today if you need to store your belongings between real estate transactions, while you are remodeling, when moving your home or office, or anytime you need to put away a portion of your household or business or expand your square footage.

History

We are a team of technology entrepreneurs. We used to build great products at Microsoft, hatch successful software and Internet startups, and operate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, otherwise known as "drones", for the U.S. Marine Corps.

We decided that our next venture should be about bringing an innovative technology to solve a problem bound by the physical constraints of the world we live in, rather than a problem that only exists in cyberspace.

This is why we launched UNITS, a new portable storage service for consumers and businesses anywhere in the Puget Sound region. UNITS takes a category that was created 15+ years ago and re-invents it through the use of robotic technology.

While our unique contribution to self-storage is technology innovation, it is not what motivates us. When our customers need us, it is because they are moving forward in their life - new house, new career, or a new life. Our mission is to make their move forward simple, stress-free, and affordable.

UNITS Guide to Selling Your Belongings Before Your Move

When decluttering your home, it’s likely there some things you don’t want to throw out. Here's how you can sell those items before your move.
< Back

If you are looking to sell your home, then you are most likely considering staging your home for sale. And for good reason, house staging is a great way to reduce the amount of time your home stays on the market and helps in attracting the highest number of potential buyers. According to the National Association of Realtors, 53% of buyers’ agents claim that house staging reduces the amount of time a property is on the market and 44% state that staging your house increases the dollar amount offered. 

 

However, staging a house can be a lot harder than it sounds, especially when you have children. Not only do you have to worry about preparing your home for sale, but you have to be concerned with making sure your children are comfortable and entertained during the transition as well.

 

At UNITS Moving and Portable Storage, we know that moving can be a difficult experience. That is why dedicated to making the moving and storage experience easy for our customers with our helpful tips and tricks. Our state-of-the-art portable storage containers can make your house staging and moving experience a breeze. To get a free quote on your UNITS container today call (855) 981-8648. Read on to learn how you can stage your house for sale, even with kids around.

Declutter Your Home

If you have children, then it’s pretty likely that you have a lot of clutter laying around: old clothes that they’ve grown out of, broken or outdated toys, and general house clutter. The first step in staging your home is decluttering all the unused stuff that have been sitting around.Toys and clothing in good condition can be sold online or at a yard sale. You can also donate your unwanted items to charities like Goodwill or to shelters. Many sellers opt to rent a storage unit when decluttering to store items they intend to keep or larger items like furniture and appliances. 

Decide on Necessary Toys/gadgets

If your children are older, then it’s likely that they understand the importance of this transition. However this transition can be tough for younger children. When staging your home with kids, it’s essential to determine which items are crucial for keeping your kids engaged during the staging process. These can be items like a favorite book, favorite toys or even a tablet. Having methods of keeping your children entertained is important for helping them manage the transition. 

Ask for/hire Help

Staging your home for sale can be an endeavor, especially when you have children running around. During the process of staging your home, it can be useful to ask for help or hire the help of professionals. The help of friends and family can make staging your home much easier. Alternatively, you can seek the help of professional house stagers. While this can be expensive, the increase in the value of your home is well worth your investment. 

Keep the Kids Away

If you’ve spent money and time staging your house, the last thing you want is for your children to ruin your perfectly staged home. Think of things to do to keep them occupied. During the school year, a good option is to have your kids stay with their grandparents during the weekend so that they have little time to be bored.

 

UNITS Moving and Portable Storage is dedicated to making the moving and storage experience simple and affordable for our customers. That is why we provide tips and tricks to help ease your transition.Our patented storage containers are the perfect solution for staging your home for sale.
