A Guide To Storing Your Treasures

Hello, my name is Pete Stone. Over the years, I have met a lot of interesting people and we have exchanged gifts. Many of these gifts are very unique and irreplaceable, with some being custom-made or created by the gift giver himself or herself. The problem is that I live in an apartment that is not very large. My only solution to this problem is to purchase storage space. There is an art to using a self-storage unit that I have discovered. With the right storage techniques, your belongings will last. Because I have learned so much, I have decided to create this blog to share my knowledge with anyone who needs it.

Getting Ready To Deploy? The Benefits Of Storing Your Belongings In A Self Storage Unit


One of the dilemmas that you may face if you are getting ready to deploy is what to do with your belongings. If you are renting a home, you may be thinking about placing your belongings in the garage of a friend or family member. If you live in your home, you may be thinking about leaving it where it is. However, there are many benefits to renting a self-storage unit in both situations. Here are a few of the benefits of placing your belongings in a self-storage unit if you are getting ready to deploy in the military. 

Your Belongings Are Safe

One of the benefits of placing your belongings in storage while you are being deployed is that you know your belongings are safe. When you leave items in your home, someone could break in and steal your belongings. And since you are not living there, you may not become aware of the issue until a family member goes to check on your home. Self-storage units use a variety of security features to help keep your belongings safe, including video cameras and guards. This can give you peace of mind while you are deployed that your items are safe and sound. 

No One Has to Move Your Belongings

Another benefit to storing your belongings in a self-storage unit is that you do not have to worry about anyone needing to move your belongings in the event of a natural disaster or emergency. If your home, or the home you are storing your belongings in, has a burst pipe or is facing the threat of a hurricane, someone may need to move your belongings. When your items are in self-storage, your belongings are not a burden to anyone else. 

The Fees May be Reimbursable or Used as a Write-Off

The last benefit to storing your belongings in self-storage is that the fees may be reimbursable by the military, or they can be written off on your taxes. In addition to this, many self-storage facilities offer discounts to military members who may be facing a deployment. This helps make self-storage affordable or free for you. 

If you are preparing to be deployed, stop wondering what to do with your belongings. There are many benefits to placing them in a self-storage unit. You know that they are safe, that they won't need to be moved and you may be reimbursed for the cost of the unit or be able to write it off on your taxes. Call around to local self-storage facilities today to inquire about rates and possible military discounts.
