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.
The U.S. Census Bureau reports that the average American moves over 11 times in their life. The moving and portable storage industry isn't going anywhere - demand will only increase as time goes on.
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.
