The USUThis is one of our new favorite things!  The USU was created for urban dwellers, and is especially useful for high-rise residents as it provides much-needed storage space right in your parking space.  USU launched in Austin, TX, where they have hundreds of units in buildings throughout the city.  Because of the demand USU has expanded and can now ship and set up their storage units throughout the United States.  If you could use about 60 cubic feet of extra storage give them a call at 512-981-5735 or visit the USU website.  They even provide "white glove" delivery and set up right in your parking space.  Click here to see their brochure.
