Moving is a common occurrence for military personnel and their families. Assignment changes and deployments can happen on short notice requiring the military members and their families to quickly develop a moving or deployment plan. Military families learn to easily adapt and plan for any situation. For new military personnel planning for the first deployment or move can be a challenge. It is important to remember that the more that you can plan ahead, the better it is.
Stop N Stor has 5 storage facilities in the greater Hinesville & Savannah, Georgia areas located near Ft. Stewart and Hunter Army Air Field . Ft. Stewart is the home of the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division and the largest military base east of the Mississippi River. There are over 20,000 soldiers stationed at Ft. Stewart and Hunter Air Field. Currently, there are 9,000 soldiers from Ft. Stewart deployed to assignments around the world. If these deployments are for up to a year, it is a good idea to put personal items into a self storage unit during the time away. It is a safe and economic option for military personnel. The most important thing to do when you are renting a self storage unit is decide what items you need to take with you during your assignment and what items can stay in storage. If you have to store an entire home or apartment, it might be a good idea to invest in a climate controlled storage unit to protect your electronic items over long-term storage. Placing a car in self storage during deployment is also a great idea. With the proper pre-storage preparations, the car will be ready for use when you return home.
The self storage industry supports many different aspects of military life from sending essential gift boxes to supporting our wounded heroes. Stop N Stor is proud to support Wounded Warrior Outdoors , a non-profit organization that gives therapeutic outdoor adventures to wounded, but active duty service men and women. Stop N Stor also supports “Enlisted Angels”, a group, based at Ft. Stewart to help empower and support military wives. Stop N Stor also offers a 10% discount to active duty military personnel . Thank you to every member of the military past and present who have fought for and defended our freedoms!
