UNITS Portable Storage has unveiled the ROBO-UNIT, a delivery system designed to offer mobility and flexibility for portable-storage customers.
The ROBO-UNIT robot delivery system can lift up to 7,000 pounds, move up to 10,000 pounds and can place a storage container anywhere a full-size vehicle can fit. Because of its small size, the ROBO-UNIT can place containers in smaller areas, such as city streets and cul-de-sacs in suburbs. Other improvements to traditional delivery systems, according to the company, include:
- A leveling system to stabilize the container while transporting so items inside wont shift and break.
- Because the ROBO-UNIT carries the container, the truck stays in the street, meaning less property damage to driveways and lawns.
- An improved safety system securing the container to the truck. The ROBO UNIT locks to the back of the truck giving the container enhanced support and stability.
- Advanced technology that uses a motor and hydraulics.
Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Charleston, S.C., UNITS Portable Storage offers portable-storage containers in more than 40 locations throughout the nation.
