Our customers tell us all the time – UNITS® Customer Service, Fast Friendly Service and Competitive pricing are second to none when we are compared to our competition including PODS®.

What really sets UNITS® ahead of the rest, including PODS®, is our locally owned and operated facilities. When you call us, you aren't routed to a call center across the country – you are calling a local facility, with owners and employees who know your area, can answer all of your questions, and who care more about your moving and storage needs than ANYONE (except maybe you).

How UNITS® Services Compare to PODS®

  • The Best Local Customer Service

    Our locally owned and operated stores are run by owners who care, and are dedicated to making their customers lives easier. Every time you call one of our locations you will be speaking with friendly and knowledgeable staff who know your area, and can help you get exactly what you need – when you need it. Try to get that from a PODS® call center.

  • Pricing

    UNITS® pricing varies from market to market – but our owners strive to offer the most competitive pricing in their respective markets. Because of this, our average cost of moving and storage is typically far less than PODS storage. But you decide – get a quote from us today – and then compare our quote apples to apples with the PODS® quote – you won't be disappointed! UNITS doesn't have any hidden fees – PERIOD.

  • All Steel Construction

    UNITS® containers are built tough. Our containers feature all steel construction, tough steel frames, and steel doors and are the most weatherproof containers on the market. PODS® containers are made of wood, steel beams, and vinyl.

  • More Interior Space & Capacity

    UNITS® containers are large and spacious – in fact because of our unique door design we can actually fit 30 more cubic feet of space than PODS® containers can. On top of that, our 16' UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage Containers are able to hold up to 60% more by weight than the same sized PODS® containers!
  • Etrack™ Securing System

    Our containers feature the ETRACK™ securing system. Unlike PODS®, we acknowledge the fact that items can sometimes shift during moves due to differences in terrain. Using our proprietary strap and restraint system aka ETRACK, your items will stay put!

Container Delivery Re-Invented – UNITS® Robo-Unit*

The ROBO-UNIT is our proprietary delivery system which allows us to deliver containers to the tightest of spaces, while also providing level loading and unloading of your container. This system greatly reduces any 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 – not even PODS®.


*ROBO-UNIT is not available in all markets.
