Moving is a part of life. Most families move at one time or another, but few families move as often as military families do! In fact, military families relocate 10 times more often than civilian families; an average of once every 2 or 3 years. That’s a lot of moving around, and over time, service members and their families get pretty good at picking up and relocating. But, there are always challenges that come with moving so often.
Besides all the usual annoyances that come with moving to a new place—packing everything up and hauling it, transitioning kids into a new school, learning the best places to shop—military families face the added hardships that can go hand-in-hand with frequent relocations. It can be difficult to decide what to bring with you from station to station, and sometimes your new home may not have as much room (or storage) as the one you left behind.
Fortunately, self-storage near Ft. Sill can help military families find a safe, convenient place to keep everything that they bring with them, or anything they might need to leave behind but can’t quite part with. Self-storage is more than just something for busy military families without enough space at home; it can help with every stage of a relocation, from packing and moving to long-term storage or a temporary home for items while you’re on a short-term relocation to someplace out of the state or out of the country.
