Our store is overseen by caring owners who are deeply committed to enhancing the lives of our valued customers.

They are here to assist you in securing precisely what you need, precisely when you need it. We’re not just service providers; we’re your fellow neighbors who take the time to understand each customer’s unique requirements to offer nothing short of the best customer service imaginable. It’s the kind of personalized care you won’t find from a U-Haul® call center.


The dedicated owners at UNITS® of Minneapolis have made it their mission to provide you with the most competitive pricing in the Minneapolis area. As a result, our average moving and storage costs are typically more economical than those of U-Haul®. However, we believe in letting you be the judge. So, request a quote from us today, then compare it apples to apples with a quote from U-Haul®. We’re confident that you’ll be pleasantly surprised. When we say transparent pricing, we mean it – there are absolutely no hidden fees. PERIOD.

All Steel Construction

Regarding durability and resilience, UNITS® containers are in a league of their own. Our containers feature a robust all-steel construction, fortified with sturdy steel frames and doors. They stand tall as the epitome of weather resistance, eliminating any need for cumbersome tarps. In stark contrast, U-Haul® containers are constructed using wood, adhesive, and staples. This level of quality and ruggedness is a hallmark that can only be found at UNITS® of Minneapolis.

More Interior Space and Capacity

UNITS® containers are renowned for their vast and spacious interiors. In fact, due to our innovative door design, our smallest container (12′) can comfortably accommodate a remarkable 511 additional cubic feet of space compared to similarly sized U-Haul® containers. Furthermore, our 16′ UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage containers can support up to 400% more weight than their U-Haul® counterparts of equivalent size. That’s versatility and capacity you can rely on.

ETRACK™ Securing System

Our containers come equipped with the advanced ETRACK™ securing system, setting us apart from U-Haul®. We understand that during moves, items may shift due to variations in terrain. That’s why we’ve developed our strap and restraint system, aptly named ETRACK™, to ensure your belongings stay securely in place.

One Container Does the Job

Compared to U-Haul®’s U-Box, you’ll find that one of our containers can effortlessly handle the storage needs of multiple rooms, including furniture and more. Meanwhile, numerous U-Box containers would be required to accomplish the same task. Our 12′ containers can comfortably house the contents of up to four rooms, an entire basement, or oversized items such as patio furniture and dining room tables. Our 16′ containers are ideal for substantial family relocations, keeping supplies readily accessible at job sites, or providing support to first responders. With our containers, UNITS® of Minneapolis rises to the challenge when others fall short.

Container Delivery Re-Invented – UNITS® of Minneapolis ROBO-UNIT®

Our revolutionary ROBO-UNIT serves as our delivery system, allowing us to seamlessly deliver containers even to the tightest spaces within Minneapolis. Additionally, it ensures level loading and unloading of your container. This groundbreaking system significantly reduces the likelihood of any shifts in container contents and affords greater flexibility when it comes to container placement, particularly in cases where space is limited. 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-UNIT – not even U-Haul®.
