Free self storage, not just affordable self storage, should be a right for military personnel.  Mind you that’s just our opinion at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage. We have no control over the thousands of mini storage facilities across this country, and we certainly don’t have control over military policies.

Our job at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, then, is to make self storage as affordable as possible for the men and women who protect our freedoms, and that’s what we do.  Call us if you are in the Fort Worth area at (817) 439-1380 for details.

How to find affordable self storage if you are a military member

There are a few things you can to do make sure you get the best price possible in whatever city you are in.  We cannot promise that all of these strategies will work in all situations, but we do know they are effective more often than not.

Shop around

It seems obvious, but amazingly many people do not shop around for the best deal available. If you are posted near a large city, and most military bases are, you will have dozens of mini storage buildings to choose from.  You need to take an hour out of your day and make as many phone calls as possible, and the phone call should go something like this:  “Hello, I’m Corporal Riley, stationed at Fort Lewis, and I’m looking for the best deal for military storage in town. What do you have to offer me?”  They will ask you a few questions, like size needed and duration of storage, you jot down the answers, and then you call the next place on your list.

Ask about move-in specials

This is the second question you need to ask after “what do you have to offer me.”  Most self storage facilities will have move-in specials. This is a highly-competitive industry, and some of the move-in specials are quite good, including first month, or first two months, free, so this will definitely be worth your while.

Make your decision

By that time you will have compiled enough information to make your decision.  You should be looking at a sizeable discount when you add the military discount with the move-in specials.   Choose the situation which best meets your needs, and feel good about your decision.

One other thing which is fairly important for you to check on:  make sure there are no penalties if you should have to extend the storage contract, or if you come back from deployment early.  Make the management include a “no penalty” clause to cover you should your orders be changed and your stay shortened or lengthened.
