Frequently Asked Questions

Is it allowed in my building?

The USU is approved for use by residents in several local communities. To find out if the USU is approved for use in your building, please check with your property management company, or simply drop us a line and we will be able to assist you with obtaining any approval information.

How do I know if it will fit in my space?

The USU is designed and manufactured specifically for in-parking-space locations and should fit in most any regular sized parking space (please click here for fitment details).

However, please note that in some rare instances there may be contributing factors such as sprinkler head locations and or plumbing or electrical piping that could prohibit the USU from fitting in your space.

I drive a large SUV, how do I know if it will fit over my hood?

The USU is designed to fit over most any regular car, truck or SUV.

The base stand is height adjustable and can be set as low as 44″ off the ground to a maximum height of just over 55″ off the ground.

What is it made out of?

The USU is made with pride and care in the USA.   The top box is made from brushed aluminum with fully welded seams and mounts to our steel powder-coated adjustable base unit to ensure a maintenance free and aesthetically attractive appearance.

What sizes does it come in?

The USU is currently available in our standard box size measuring 98″ wide by 36″ deep by 30″ high (please click here for fitment details).  The USU is also available in a compact size measuring 91″ wide by 36″ deep by 30″ high.  Please contact us directly for more detailed information and pricing.

How much stuff can it hold?

The USU can hold up to 1,000 pounds of your precious stuff.  It provides about 61.25 cubic feet of storage space (equal to about 3 refrigerators w/ freezers).

How is it installed?

The USU is constructed in our factory and arrives fully assembled.  All that is required is to assemble the base stand, then lift and secure the USU to the base stand.  It should take 2 people with limited assembly experience about an hour from start to finish, when referencing the assembly guide. Here’s a LINK to a short assembly video overview.

If that seems like all too much, you could always simply request our no hassle White Glove assembly option.

My parking space is on a sloped floor. Will it still work?

Yes, the USU’s modular base stand has 12″ leg inserts in each leg that allow for installation on sloped or uneven floors as well as on parking spaces located on ramps.  All USUs also feature 3″  multi-directional, self-leveling foot pads that offer instant adjustment for flooring that is not perfectly level.

My building won’t allow us to penetrate into the walls or floor?

Not a problem, the USU is completely freestanding.  It does not require any anchoring or drilling.

If I sell my unit can it be moved?

Yes, although the USU is a pre-assembled and fully welded structure, its base stand is modular in design and can be easily broken down to facilitate moving, relocation or storage.  In fact, the base stand once dismantled can be stored inside the USU itself. If you have purchased an USU from us previously and are moving to a new property but need help or guidance relocating your USU – please contact us for assistance.

What’s the warranty?

The USU features a limited 1 year parts and labor warranty.

If I rent my unit from someone else, can I still buy or rent an USU?

Absolutely!  Although you’ll probably need to obtain your landlord’s consent first.
