Turnkey Franchise: Opening a Moving and Portable Storage Franchise

October 16, 2019

For any entrepreneur, the benefits of launching a turnkey franchise are clear. A franchise is “turnkey” if the owner gets a complete package with everything they need to start the business. And by “everything,” the owner of a truly turnkey franchise gets help from the franchisor with site selection, lease negotiation, all physical elements needed including equipment, training, and business operational systems.


Any franchise unit of a successful brand comes with a big head start and reduction of risk, in that the business model has already been through trial and error, improving more and more over time, before the location owner hits the ground running with it. But the more turnkey a franchise is, the more the owner’s odds of immediate success improve — so long as it is a location of an established brand with proven profit power.


Moving On Up: Perfect for Semi-Absentee Operation


A turnkey franchise is especially ideal for an entrepreneur who looks to operate a moving and portable storage franchise as a side hustle, in addition to other business enterprises or a full-time career. Guesswork is vastly reduced with a turnkey franchise. So, the complete package of a such a franchise is ready-made for semi-absentee operation.


UNITS Moving and Portable Storage is one such “total package” franchise opportunity that offers a business owner everything they need to start the business. The specs are simple. The franchise owner starts with at least 16 8-ft. x 12-ft. UNITS containers and 36 8-ft. x 16-ft. UNITS, a truck or forklift and a climate-controlled storage facility with a minimum of 15,000 square feet.


And UNITS has its own software customized for operation of the moving and portable storage franchise. The complete package of the UNITS turnkey franchise includes operation manuals and comprehensive training before launch and continued training and education.


Plus, operators have access to professionally produced print, television, and radio ads, while benefiting also from UNITS’ extensive corporate advertising campaigns, as well.


The turnkey package also provides internet lead generation and search engine optimization (SEO) for the owner’s website, with tracking to turn leads into sales. And the UNITS online reservation and quote system provides real-time quotes to customers.


Ready to Move: Turning the Key


Unlike traditional self-storage facilities, a moving and portable storage franchise takes most of the “self” out of the equation. Rather than just store the customer’s stuff, the latter makes the moving process much easier, whether they are moving within the same town or across the country.


A portable storage franchise also enables people who just need temporary storage to load up a container onsite — at the house they are leaving, an office space they are closing, or a construction site where items need to be stored.


And that’s quite fitting, considering that UNITS Moving and Portable Storage, a turnkey franchise for its owner, is also providing a complete turnkey solution to consumers who are moving or need storage.


Founded by Michael McAlhany in 2004, the mission of UNITS Moving and Portable Storage is to provide personal customer service while supplying the most innovative equipment in order to eliminate frustrations associated with moving and storage space issues.


UNITS Moving and Portable Storage currently has 24 franchised and three corporate territories across the United States. With a presence in more than 40 markets, and growing, the brand is looking to expand with the right people in the right markets.
