Military Families and Self Storage | Morningstar Storage

When it comes to moving, no one does it more often than military members and their families. Whether it’s being deployed overseas for extended periods or assigned to different bases around the country, our service members dedicate themselves to fulfilling their duty to our nation wherever—and whenever—they’re needed.

At Morningstar Storage, we appreciate and honor our U.S. military members and their families by doing what we can to help make any life transition they’re going through simple: with self storage.

Self Storage During Deployments

When military members are assigned overseas, they can’t take everything with them. If they’re not homeowners, they’re renters, but it may not make sense to leave an apartment full of stuff behind if they’ll be gone for an extended period. Packing up and moving everything into a self storage unit can often be more affordable than paying apartment rent for the length of the deployment. In addition, climate controlled storage can keep everything protected from the elements—from extreme winter weather to sweltering summer heat.

Whether you’re going it alone or taking your entire family with you for your deployment to a base overseas, a self storage unit can help you avoid the hassle of gifting, selling, or paying to move your things during your deployment.

Self Storage While Looking for a New Home

If you’re assigned to a new base and need some time to get your bearings, renting a storage unit can be a great way to keep all your belongings in one place without crowding a bunch of boxes into an apartment. While you and your family seek out that perfect place to call home, we’ll keep your stuff in one convenient spot while you do your apartment or house hunting. When you’re ready, our free moving truck rental can get your boxes to their final destination.

Self Storage Benefits and Features for Military Families

When picking a storage unit to handle your needs, don’t skimp on the details. You’ll want to find a unit or facility that can hold all your stuff, whether that’s furniture, electronics, and even your vehicles. In addition to space considerations, you’ll need to choose a facility that offers convenient billing and payment options.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I pay? Can I pay online?

    We have several ways that you can pay, and they are all FEE FREE! Online, by phone, in- person, or auto-pay. We strongly suggest using the ACH Autopay method. It safely and automatically transfers your payment directly to us for an always on time payment from your checking account on the first of every month. If you wish to pay online, you will need to create an account with the original email you used to reserve your unit, as well as your unit number.
  • Do you prorate in and out?

    Absolutely! We do not want you to have to pay for any days in the month that you’re not storing with us! For instance, if you sign your lease on the 11th of the month, your first payment is only for the 11th through the end of the month. On your move-out, we only ask that you give us a 10 day notice and that you vacate no later than the 15th. If you abide by those two easy rules, we will refund you for the entire second half of the month!
  • Do I have to stay a certain amount of time?

    At Morningstar you are never locked in to a long term lease. Stay as long or as little as your needs apply. We offer month to month leases with prorating in and out.
  • Do I need Insurance?

    If it’s worth storing then it must be worth protecting! We offer low-cost coverage for most of life’s mishaps for as little as 40 cents a day. So, even in the unlikely event that you will ever have a claim, it’s comforting to know that the coverage that we can offer protects your belongings in transit on the way to our facility, and there is never a deductible.
  • Do you require a deposit to hold a unit?

    We do not require a deposit to hold a unit for you.
