All Steel Construction

Our containers are built to last. UNITS® containers feature all steel construction, tough steel frames, and steel doors. They’re designed to be the most weather-resistant containers on the market, which means you won’t need to use a tarp to keep your belongings dry. In contrast, U-Haul® containers are made of wood, adhesive, and staples. When it comes to quality, UNITS® of New Orleans & the Gulf Coast is the clear winner.

More Interior Space and Capacity

UNITS® containers are designed to maximize space. Thanks to our unique door design, our smallest container (12′) can fit 511 more cubic feet of space than U-Haul® containers. Our 16′ UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage containers can hold up to 400% more weight than the same-sized U-Haul® containers. This means that you can pack more belongings into a single container, which can save you time and money.

ETRACK™ Securing System

We understand that moving can be bumpy, and items can sometimes shift during transport. That’s why our containers are equipped with the ETRACK™ securing system. Unlike U-Haul®, we use straps and restraints to keep your belongings in place during transport. With the ETRACK™ system, you can have peace of mind knowing that your items will arrive at your destination in the same condition they were packed in.

One Container Does the Job

Compared to U-Haul®’s U-Box, our containers are more spacious and versatile. With our 12′ containers, you can pack the contents of up to 4 rooms, an entire basement, or large objects like patio furniture and dining room tables into a single container. Our 16′ containers are perfect for large family relocations, keeping supplies on hand at a jobsite, or first responders. With our containers, UNITS® of New Orleans & the Gulf Coast can provide the storage solutions you need, without the hassle of multiple containers.
