Values & History

Michael McAlhany established UNITS in 2004, just as the portable storage and moving industry started to pick up. His mission: to provide the customer service of a locally-owned business with the high-quality equipment of an innovative corporation. The goal? To offer solutions for any kind of space issues and eliminate the typical struggles that accompany moving to a new home or office.

Residents or business owners can make both short and long-term use of our spacious, clean and weather-resistant Unit containers. Whether they need the container for a quick move or to store the container in one of our secure, climate-controlled storage facilities, we can accommodate them. Currently, our nationwide network of UNITS® Storage and Service Centers reaches over 500 cities and continues to grow. We've developed a strong reputation for support the local community, building relationships, and providing unmatched customer service.

Industry Performance

Market & Demand

According to IBISWorld, the moving industry generated over $18 billion in 2017 and only continues to rise. According to the American Moving & Storage Association, the moving industry directly employs more than 186,000 people. In recent years, franchise growth, in general, has outpaced the rest of the economy in job creation.

As a provider of moving and portable storage services, UNITS® directly competes in four massive industries: self-storage, on-site storage, self-service moving, and inter-franchise (long-distance) moves. Together, these industries represent over $42 billion in estimated revenue. Over the last decade, we've forged a proven company model designed to help our franchises best the competition and dominate market share. At that time, we've also cultivated a powerful brand by providing consistently high quality and dedicated customer service. We're simply one of the best franchising opportunities around. Franchising through the country is on the rise and more potential business owners are catching on the benefits of franchising.
