UNITS Moving and Portable Storage Celebrates Strong Franchise Growth in 2019

December 18, 2019

New Franchisees and Locations Fueled Strong Franchise Growth and Will Continue in 2020

(Daniel Island, South Carolina) — Providing personal customer service, while supplying the most innovative equipment in order to eliminate the frustrations associated with moving and storage space issues, UNITS Moving and Portable Storage continues to expand steadily — a trend that gained momentum in 2019, with strong franchise growth spreading into 2020.


UNITS added seven new franchisees this year and eight new offices. Two more offices will open in the first quarter of 2020  in Columbus, Ohio and Jacksonville, Florida. 


“Over the past two years, UNITS locations  have grown in number by about 15 percent,” says Matt Dillon, director of franchise development at UNITS Moving and Portable Storage. “Our franchisees have seen strong double digit percentage – increase in revenue. We’ve added a significant number of  new containers to our inventory.”


New locations included offices in Austin, Baltimore, , Northern Chicago, Northern Virginia, Denver, Miami, and Nashville. According to Dillon, the upward trajectory of UNITS Moving and Portable Storage is due to the company’s simple, effective business model and experienced team.


“Portable storage and moving is such a convenient solution that this segment of the moving and storage industry continues to grow exponentially,” he said. “We provide the ability to have the container delivered right onsite so that customers don’t have to rent a vehicle or a truck to take their belongings to a storage facility. This makes it much easier as well for customers who just need temporary onsite storage and moving services.”


What continues to separate UNITS from competitors, Dillon said, is that its offices are locally owned and operated by franchisees enabling hands on customer service. 


“It sets us apart from the national container providers because they are all run corporately out of a headquarters and aren’t as familiar with each individual marketplace,” said Dillon. “Our customers really appreciate that face-to-face, one-on-one, customer-centric approach.”


Another differentiator assisting with the company’s growth is that UNITS can deliver containers to places other companies cannot. 


“We utilize a maneuverable, remote-controlled system to drop our containers off and move them onto the customer’s property exactly where they want the containers to go,” Dillon said.


By staying the course, Dillon predicts UNITS Moving and Portable Storage will open another 10 to 12 new offices in 2020 and that its existing locations will continue to see double-digit percentage growth in revenue.
