But don’t take our word for it; take advantage of our quote service today and compare it apples to apples with the U-Haul® quote—you’ll be pleasantly surprised! Furthermore, UNITS® is transparent in pricing, with no hidden fees, PERIOD.

All Steel Construction

Our UNITS® containers are renowned for their robust construction. They are the most weather-resistant containers, featuring all steel components, including rigid steel frames and doors, eliminating the need for cumbersome tarps. In contrast, U-Haul® containers are constructed using wood, adhesive, and staples, a far cry from the level of quality found at UNITS® of North Shore.

More Interior Space and Capacity

One of the outstanding advantages of choosing UNITS® containers is their ample interior space and capacity. In fact, due to our unique door design, our smallest 12′ container can accommodate a remarkable 511 more cubic feet of space compared to U-Haul® containers. Additionally, our 16′ UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage containers can hold up to 400% more weight than similarly sized U-Haul® containers, making them an ideal choice for various storage needs.

ETRACK™ Securing System

Our containers feature the cutting-edge ETRACK™ securing system, a feature not found in U-Haul® containers. We understand that during moves, items can shift due to differences in terrain. Our strap and restraint system, also known as ETRACK™, ensures your belongings stay securely in place throughout the journey.

One Container Does the Job

When it comes to efficiency, UNITS® outshines U-Haul® with our one-container approach. While U-Haul®’s U-Box may necessitate multiple containers for storing your belongings, our spacious containers can efficiently accommodate the contents of numerous rooms, including large furniture items like patio furniture and dining room tables. Whether you’re planning a large family relocation, need to keep supplies on hand at a job site, or require storage for first responders, our containers at UNITS® of North Shore are designed to meet diverse needs, surpassing what others can offer.

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

Our revolutionary ROBO-UNIT delivery system empowers us to transport containers to the most constrained spaces in North Shore, ensuring level loading and unloading. This cutting-edge system offers unparalleled flexibility in container placement, especially in challenging spatial conditions, by significantly minimizing any potential shift in container contents. 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®.
