Why To Use Self Storage When Deploying

Whether you're storing a few personal items, a vehicle, or an entire houseful of furniture, renting a storage unit will ease your transition.  Deployment is a big transition, with many things to consider.  St Albert Storage allows military members to keep all of their favorite belongings, even when they're halfway across the world.  With monthly payments and a safe location, storage can help you prepare for your deployment with piece of mind.  You can generate income, save money, and take comfort in security while you're away.

Consider climate controlled storage if you're going to be storing things for an extended period of time.  Fluctuating temperature and humidity can easily damage your valuables such as furniture, electronics, and even your clothes while in self storage.  You can get units that are climate controlled to protect the integrity of your possessions, so that you'll find them just as you left them.

When you're deployed, it can become evident that no one has been home in a while.  This leaves you susceptible to possible break-ins, and leaves your home vulnerable.  St Albert Storage offers security with security cameras, to deter and catch would-be trespassers and personal access codes to protect your belongings.  As well as, onsite staff and regular patrols of the area.  You shouldn't have to worry about your belongings when you're gone.


It is becoming increasingly popular for military members to rent out their place while deployed.  This makes storage a perfect option while you're away.  Even if you plan on renting your home furnished, you will still want to move all of your personal items out into a safe and secure storage unit.

This is also a great option to reduce the stress in an already stressful transition period.  You won't have to worry about having to spend time trying to find a place when you come back because you gave up your place when you deployed.  If keeping your place, renting it out while you're away means that you won't have to be spending money on a vacant apartment for months or even years at a time.


Of the many items you may want to store, the most difficult item to store is often a car.  Security is the best feature that a storage facility can offer when it comes to outdoor vehicle parking.  Riel Park RV & Self Storage makes it a point to drive through the vehicle compound every day.   While most vehicles stored are kept outside, there are a few military members who want another layer of protection for their vehicles - protection that only an indoor unit can provide.  With a 10x20 or 10x30 storage unit, a car or truck can be stored indoors.
