All military families know the pain of a permanent change of situation (PCS), which never seem to be as permanent as they sound on the first pass. Suddenly uprooted, and you have idea how big your new home will be, but you do know exactly how much stuff you need to move. Odds are, it will be more expensive to bring everything with you than the stuff is worth. That’s where iStorage can help.
We offer long-term and short-term storage solutions all for the same month-to-month leasing agreement. If you find yourself in a new country for months at a time, it is nice to know that the last thing you need to worry about are the things you put into storage. With our auto-pay system, you will never need to think about making a payment. If that doesn’t sound quite like what you are looking for, try our easy to use online payment portal. There are a few more things to consider before getting a military storage unit.

What Kind of Storage Unit is Right for Me?
Truth be known, the storage unit size you need depends on how much you plan on storing. Larger objects need more space and it might be smart to look for units with drive-up access when storing bulky things. If, however, you need to store a few small boxes, an upper-level unit might suit your needs better. Having a unit where you need it, which includes for loading and unloading purposes, will always be in your best interests.

How Should I Prepare My Belongings for Storage?
Preparing your belongings for storage is often much more difficult than it first appears. First, decide what should go into storage, then ensure that everything is appropriately packed and labeled to make finding things easier.
We offer a guide to packing a first time storage unit rental.
- Make sure large appliances are clean. Remove crumbs, residue and any residual water in pipes. This will keep mold and mildew from forming.
- Cover furniture when possible. Covered furniture should be loose enough to maintain consistent air flow. Smothering furniture shortens its lifespan and results in musty furniture.
- Label boxes clearly. Be sure that all moving boxes are appropriately labeled for easy navigation. When possible, keep similar boxes together.
- Use all available space. When possible, use the inside of drawers, cabinets, and appliances as additional storage space. This will allow you to fit more things with ease.
