Joining the military is a big step for anyone, and if you’ve signed up for the Navy, the Army, the Marines, or any branch of the armed forces, then you might not know what the future has in store. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we’re proud to serve those who serve our country, and we always offer a 10% monthly discount to active military personnel. If you’re deploying this summer and you need a self-storage unit, then we’d love to help you find the right one. With multiple locations across the metro area, you can find a space that’s close to home.
If you’ve already received your assignment, then you can begin planning for your deployment. It’s possible that you’re heading overseas, and you might not be sure when you’ll be back stateside. Planning for storage can be tough when you don’t know your return date, and you don’t want to pay for a space for longer than you need. Every one of our storage centers offers monthly leases, which means you pay for the time you need, rather than being locked into a long-term contract.
Since you’ll be out of the country for at least a few months, you might want to designate an emergency contact to manage your account. You can grant them access to your storage space, and they can handle any issues that come up that need to be handled while you’re serving. This way, your focus is on what you need to do, not on whether or not your boxes of belongings are secure.
What Should You Store?
Military deployment can take you anywhere in the world, and you can only take so much with you. You have a few personal effects that you’re allowed, but everything else needs to stay behind. If you’re moving out of a house or apartment before you leave, then you might have some furniture that needs to be stored. You may also have boxes or tubs of clothes that need to be kept safe until you return.
One thing that many military members need to store while they’re deployed is their personal vehicle. Your car or truck is often your most valuable possession, and you don’t want to leave it parked in a driveway, or even your friend’s garage, while you’re gone. By renting a larger storage unit, you can keep your vehicle safe and sound until you get back, and it will be protected from weather, vandalism, and other hazards.
Visit Us Today
We’re extremely proud to support our armed forces. We offer recurring payment options so that you never have to worry about missing a payment, and you can leave a spare key to your unit so that we can deposit any deliveries that need to be made. As we said above, active military members get a monthly discount on storage, and our resident managers keep an eye on everything every single day.
If you’re being deployed this fall, then visit us today for all of your storage needs. We’ll show you which units are available and gladly answer any questions you have.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
