Baltimore's Peter Burstein shows a strong commitment to the community as a board member for CHAI (Comprehensive Housing Assistance Inc.), a non-profit focused on providing affordable housing and services in northwest Baltimore. Now, he's using his new business venture to help CHAI and local seniors in need stay warm in the coming winter months.

The local business community celebrated the grand opening of UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage of Baltimore, a national franchise brand, on Tuesday, June 18th at their 20,000 square-foot facility at 815 Central Avenue in North Linthicum Heights. Burstein used the grand opening celebration to kickoff a "Fill the Unit" Fall and Winter Drive for CHAI, collecting winter emergency supplies and blankets for seniors.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with UNITS of Baltimore and Peter," said Lisa Budlow, CEO of CHAI. "He has always been so good to our organization. And now, to deepen the relationship by hosting a supply drive to help seniors weather the harsh winter months is very exciting. We look forward to partnering with UNITS throughout the year and working together on making some special deliveries of these packages."

The celebration also included a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, a reception with light refreshments, demonstrations of the UNITS Robo-Unit, a proprietary delivery system which can place containers in tight places and tours of the UNITS Moving and Portable Storage 20,000 square-foot facility.

After spending almost 20 years working in the Baltimore real estate and mortgage industry, Burstein knew the bustling B-town area needed more storage - from commercial businesses to homeowners on the move. His childhood dream of owning his own franchise business (in high school he tried to buy a Philly-based Italian water ice franchise) became a reality when he found UNITS Moving and Portable Storage.

"After years of considering owning a franchise, I found the perfect fit in UNITS Moving and Portable Storage, with their brand, technology and values," said Burstein. "We are going to do this right as a locally-owned and operated storage company that is entrenched in the community and 110 percent committed to making sure every single customer has a really great experience."
Commitment to Community.

With 100 mobile containers, UNITS of Baltimore is providing top-notch storage solutions and logistical convenience to all its customers. The high-quality containers, featuring barn-style doors and all-steel construction, may be placed in a UNITS Moving and Portable Storage service warehouse or at the customer's desired location - always at ground level for easy access. Containers can also be transported at the time and place of the customer's choosing. Burstein's UNITS business even offers a robotic delivery system - the most technologically advanced in the industry - which allows movement in small spaces and virtually eliminates any shift in contents when lifting containers on and off transport vehicles.
