The Best Local Customer Service

UNITS® of North Houston is the better choice for your moving and storage container needs. You’ll receive fantastic customer service from our local staff who knows the area. We’re dedicated to making your life easier, unlike U-Haul®, which outsources its call center services.


The owners of North Houston’s UNITS® goal is to provide the most affordable pricing in the North Houston region. As a result, our moving and storage prices are typically lower than U-Haul®. But you decide — get a price from us now, then compare our quote apples to apples with the U-Haul® quote — you won’t be disappointed! UNITS® does not charge any additional costs beyond what is advertised. PERIOD.

All Steel Construction

UNITS® containers are extra tough and long-lasting. They feature all steel construction, including a steel frame and doors. Plus, they’re the most weather-resistant containers available – so you don’t need a tarp. U-Haul® containers use lower quality materials like wood, adhesive, and staples. If you want the best of the best, UNITS® of North Houston is the place for you.

More Interior Space & Capacity

UNITS® containers are both large and spacious – in fact, our smallest container can fit 511 cubic feet more than U-Haul®’s popular model because of our unique door design. Plus, 16′ UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage containers have the ability to hold up 400% more weight compared to similarly sized U-Haul® models!

Etrack™ Securing System

Our containers are equipped with the ETRACK™ securing mechanism. Unlike U-Haul®, we understand that items may shift during transportation as a result of various terrains. With our strap and restraint system, aka ETRACK™, your possessions will stay put!

One Container Does The Job

UNITS® of North Houston’s containers can hold considerably more than U-Haul® ‘s U-Boxes, which you would need multiple of to store everything our one container can. For example, our 12’ container is perfect for 4 rooms’ worth of furniture and supplies, or even large objects like patio furniture or a dining room table. Meanwhile, the 16’ size is great for larger family relocations or storing first responder supplies.

Container Delivery Re-Invented – UNITS® of North Houston ROBO-UNIT®

The ROBO-UNIT is our delivery system that allows us to deliver containers to tight spaces in North Houston. It also provides level loading and unloading of your container, which reduces 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-UNIT – not even U-Haul®.
