Military Storage Overview
It’s no secret to military members and their families that relocation comes with the job, and often on short notice. Whether the move will require short term or long term relocation, having a storage unit can be a huge relief.
Before you start packing, make sure to ask about what stipends are available for you. When going through a military move, you’ll have the option to do it yourself or hire a company to do it for you. So you choose to do it yourself, there are programs to assist. According to www.military.com, “The Do-It-Yourself (DITY) move is a voluntary program that allows you to be reimbursed by the government for moving your own belongings.”

How much will you be taking with you? Will you be storing a majority of your house, or a small part of your belongings? If you’ll be moving overseas or will be on gone for a long period of time, climate controlled storage units may be beneficial for you.
