Storage Tips for Military Personnel

Storage Tips for Military Personnel

We have put together a few storage tips for military personnel.

If you are military personnel preparing for deployment, it’s important to have a safe place to store your things while you are away from home. Whether your move involves a Permanent Change of Station (PSC), Temporary Duty (TDY) or Temporary Additional Duty (TAD), self-storage can be a convenient option for long or short-term use.

At Garden of the Gods Self Storage, we offer storage units for families, college students, and military personnel. Contact us today for more information about our storage unit sizes.

Utilize all your storage unit space

How much storage space do you need? Identify items you will be taking with you and what items will be left behind.  It will be more cost effective for you to pack your belongings as densely as possible. This is a more affordable option since you’ll be able to rent a smaller unit.

Choose Climate-Enhanced Units

Finding a storage unit that is climate-enhanced will help keep your belongings in better condition. The cool, dry climate will prevent moisture and heat from damaging your belongings. A dark storage unit will help prevent color fade for clothes, furniture, and other upholstery.

While a family member’s basement or shed might seem like a good idea, there is no guarantee what kind of pests or fluctuations in heat or dampness that your items might be exposed to.

Military Discount

Most members of the armed forces use storage for two reasons, storing their gear outside the house to make some extra space or to store their household belongings while they serve outside the country. Either way, we offer a 5% military discount for all active serving members! Also, we offer several payment options, so if your overseas or in town you can make your storage payments for the unit!

Consider our other services

We offer online and automatic payment options, which is helpful when you are deployed, it’s an extensive assignment or in a remote location. We also offer packing and moving supplies.  Moves and deployments can be very stressful but using self-storage can be a hassle-free process.

Do you need to store your vehicle, boat or RV?

We offer a clean secure place for car storage, boat storage, and camper or rv storage.  This includes 24-hour digital surveillance, electronic gate access, and quality lighting in an excellent location in Colorado Springs. Once you visit our storage facility you will know it’s the right place to store your belongings. Our customer service is our number one priority.

When it comes to military life, you have enough to think about between training, work assignments, and deployment. You don’t need storage to be another thing to worry about.
