UNITS Moving and Portable Storage

Description

UNITS Mobile Storage is a rapidly growing company in the $40+ Billion a year moving & storage industry. In the past, the storage business has been dominated by "fixed location" service providers, which means that people needed to load their belongings into a truck, deliver those items to a storage facility, unload what they just loaded and then be ready to repeat the process when they need to retrieve their belongings!

This outdated difficult, inefficient and time consuming task has been replaced by a more convenient and less expensive alternative...UNITS! We deliver a container(s) to our customers, allow them to load the it at their convenience, retrieve it and then either store it in our climate controlled warehouse or deliver it to its final destination.

The business provides: Greater convenience, quality, value & service for our customers. Interstate moves, helping someone move from one city or state to another, will continue to grow as we build out our national network.
