Mobile Storage Units for Armed Service Members

Category : Uncategorized

For many members of the armed service, getting deployed is a very real possibility. Now some deployments can be short term ( a few months or less) and some can be long term (up to several years). But either way, they are always nerve-racking. And one of the many concerns facing a soon to be deployed service member is: what am I going to do with my possessions while I’m away?

Mobile storage units are a great option in this situation. Most mobile storage unit companies offer a discount to armed service members (10% usually), which is good, but ours is usually well below that. The units  offer great security and are usually cheaper than standard storage units (sometimes as much as 50% cheaper per foot). And even more than that when factoring in the military discount!

They also offer great flexibility. Mobile storage units can be rented for a few weeks or several years depending on your needs. So whether you’re being deployed for a couple months or longer, they will have you covered!

All in all it is one less thing you and your loved ones have to worry about while dealing with the stress of deployment. You call the mobile storage unit company, they send one of the units to your home, you pack it up, and they haul it away. What could be simpler than that? And simple is definitely something you need when dealing with an impending deployment.

Category : Uncategorized

So it happened! You are finally legally an adult!  You are moving out of your parent’s house!  You are going off to college!  Congratulations!  Of course one thing you learn very early on as an “adult” is that moving is horrible.  Moving is incredibly stressful, difficult, and time consuming.  But what are your other options? Leaving most of your stuff at your mom’s house?  I doubt that would go over well.  Selling or getting rid of your prized possessions?  That sounds horrible.  But not to worry, you do have other options. Have you considered storing your belongings during the school semester?

I know what you are going to say: won’t I still have to rent a moving van and transfer all my stuff to the storage unit by myself?  Well that’s the great thing about mobile storage units.  Basically you call the storage company and order a storage unit.  Then that empty unit is dropped off in front of your house, you load it, and then it gets picked up and taken to a secure warehouse.  No muss no fuss.

Another great thing is that there are a variety of sizes of storage units to choose from.  Don’t have a lot of stuff?  Get a small storage unit.  Have a ton of stuff? Get a large storage unit.

But what about the cost?  Doesn’t it cost a pretty penny to rent a storage unit?  Well on average renting a mobile storage unit is often much cheaper than renting a standard storage unit.  Especially if you only need one for a semester or two.

So there you have it, the many reasons why mobile storage units are a great option for any college student.  So stop stressing about what to do with all your stuff and consider renting one as soon as possible! Call us or make a reservation today. We have a variety of packages to suit your needs and we serve all of the Atlanta Metro Area.

Home Emergency Checklist When Storing Your Possessions

Category : Uncategorized

What do you do when disaster strikes and everything in your home has been damaged? Unfortunately, you aren’t human if you haven’t experienced a home emergency. Whether you are a renter or a homeowner, things like water damage, fire and other events can wreak havoc on your home and your possessions. After you’ve called your insurance company, after you’ve determined just what will be remaining, you will probably need storage in the interim to get you through the repairs that take place. Here are some tips when going through your things to determine  how to store them:

  • First purchase boxes and other packing supplies.
  • Price out what you can afford
  • Start with a checklist of large items such as furniture, that you need storage for. Remember to measure these items so you know the size storage unit you will need.
  • Once you know your measurements, price out what you can afford in terms of storage units. You may want to rent a space without a contract because the length of time needed could vary.
  • Begin boxing all items that haven’t been damaged and create a detailed inventory list, which could be useful later for insurance purposes.
  • Create a section of your home that will be dedicated to damaged items, also inventory this list for insurance purposes.
  • Set aside personal items you will need to have for daily needs, toiletries, a good amount of clothing, computers, important documents and bills that need immediate attention.
  • Determine if the storage company you choose has vehicle parking in case you need to park an RV or auto.

No one likes to go through home emergencies, but keeping your things safe while you are in the process will give you peace of mind beyond measure. Call us about our specials today or make a reservation directly and we can help get you through it. We also offer movers and truck rentals if needed.
