Portable Storage Units for Military Moving

U.S. flag and military moving

When you are in the military, you become very good at moving.  Most families make a permanent change of station (PCS) every 2 to 3 years, depending upon their branch of service and specialty.  And storage and moving seem to go hand in hand with military moving

If you take an overseas assignment, you may need to store furniture and other belongings that either might not survive a long trip or will not fit into your new living space. Taking a remote assignment is another common reason to use portable storage.  Your maximum allowable weight limit for household goods may require that you store a great deal of belongings stateside.  Regardless of the reason, portable storage units offer military families a convenient and stress-free solution for storage and moving.

You can utilize portable storage units for both your storage and moving needs if you are doing a DITY move or Personally Procured Move (PPM). Portable storage units allow you to save some money while still leaving the driving to someone else.  Or, if the government is handling your move or you are using a full-service moving company for your actual move, you can utilize portable storage units for only the belongings you wish to put in storage. 

1-800-PACK-RAT storage units are delivered to your curb, driveway or parking lot, and you can take your time loading your belongings. They are weatherproof, secure and easy to load and pack.  Once you have loaded everything, 1-800-PACK-RAT will pick them up and transport them for you. Your portable storage units will be placed in the secure storage facility just as you packed them and can stay there as long as you need.

No matter how you handle your military move, if you need temporary storage, there is no better choice than using portable storage units. The convenience offered by portable storage units gives military families and individuals a stress-free solution at a time when there is enough stress in their lives.
