Many Americans cannot comprehend the full sacrifice of serving in the armed forces, especially those of us who sit behind a desk every day. For those of you who are brave enough to serve, we commend and appreciate all you do to protect our freedoms and liberties. Not only are you making the ultimate sacrifice in risking your lives but you are also making many smaller sacrifices, one being you are forced to live on military bases in different cities and even different countries.
Fortunately, there are hundreds of self storage facilities located within a 10 mile radius of most of our nation’s navy yards and army and air force bases making it convenient and affordable for our servicemen and women who need a place to store their belongings when they get deployed. Whether you need San Diego storage, Corpus Christi storage units or Jacksonville self storage, you can simply search by zip code such as 92110 storage or 32210 storage. Many of these storage facilities will offer military discounts and month to month leases for deployed personnel.
In addition, many facilities have differing amenities and options for storing your possessions. Being deployed is stressful enough and the last thing a service person needs is worrying about keeping their safe and secure. Most storage facilities now have gated access with 24 hour surveillance, an onsite manager, alarmed doors and well lit parking areas. The storage managers will also be able to provide self storage locks, boxes for packing your belongings, tape and even a moving truck to get your stuff to the storage facility. The facility manager should also be able to assist you in the size of the storage unit you need and if you require a climate controlled unit. Typically, unless you are storing art, wine, photos or electronics you probably don’t need a climate controlled unit but you should ask to be certain.
Due to the fact military personnel will probably not be able to access their belongings for months at a time, the plethora of security and convenience will provide peace of mind knowing your belongings will be safe and secure. There is no reason deployment should lead military personnel to sell their furniture, books, music, art, cars or clothes when they have an affordable option of self storage.
Although we can never repay the sacrifices made by our military personnel, we hope these tips can be used as a guide to make life a bit less stressful once they return from protecting our country.
