Storage During Military Deployment

Military soldiers being greeted

Signing up for military service can be one of the biggest decisions of a person’s life, and there are many reasons why a man or woman may make that decision. Perhaps they have a family history of military service, and they want to carry on that tradition, or perhaps they’re unsure what career path they want to take, and the armed forces can provide training and guidance for their future. Regardless of the circumstances, a person in the military has to undergo basic training, which requires them to leave home, and could be deployed overseas, which requires them to leave for even longer. If they have personal belongings that need to be stored, they might want something more secure than their parents’ basement or a friend’s attic. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we can supply the ideal self-storage while a soldier is on deployment.

When in the military, the chances of going overseas are quite high, and maintaining contact with family and friends stateside can be a challenge. You could be going to parts of the world with limited to no technology, and while the U.S. Armed Forces have state-of-the-art tech that allows soldiers to video chat and email with their loved ones, it’s not always possible to keep track of everything going on at home. With self-storage, it can be a challenge to remember to make a payment each month, or to coordinate moving things in or out of the storage unit. With EZ, you can designate a stateside contact who can manage your storage account and take care of your belongings while you’re on deployment.

Managing Unexpected Changes

Military service can also be very unpredictable, with a soldier having to leave at a moment’s notice for a new assignment. With our month-to-month storage leases, you don’t have to worry about paying for storage longer than you need, and if you need to rent a storage space at a moment’s notice, our St. Louis facilities have a number of options available. We want to make the storage process as easy possible so that you can focus on the things that truly matter. If you come home earlier than expected, you can pick your belongings up whenever you want, and if your deployment is extended, you won’t have to worry about the safety of your things.


EZ Storage is proud to support our troops and offer affordable and convenient storage when they need it most. Active military personnel receive a 10 percent monthly discount, and our recurring payment options take the worry out of paying each month or having your stateside contact drop off a check. Instead of finding a temporary space in a basement or attic for your belongings, come to one of our metro area locations and rent a sturdy, secure storage unit that will protect your items for as long as you need. We even have climate-controlled units for those fragile or antique items!
