As an active member of the military, you know better than most how to pack up and move in a hurry. You also know how to make the most out of tight quarters, especially at our nation's largest Navy training station in Addison, IL. We're proud to serve our country’s heroes with our nearby Safeguard Self Storage facilities.
Storage Units for Home and Deployment
When you share living and working spaces with 23,000 other people, you understand the value of staying organized. It's always nice to have extra space for everything from working gear to seasonal clothes. The same goes for when you're looking at deployment. You can start packing and finalizing plans, without worrying about how or where to park your belongings while you’re away serving our country.
Strategic Tips for Military Self Storage
Because your job keeps you on the move, you know your way around storage facilities. To get the most of your storage space, take these tips into consideration:
- Protect your belongings from Chicago's freezing winters and sizzling summers in a temperature-controlled unit. This type of storage also helps you comfortably weather the seasons as you move things in and out.
- Use our handy online Space Estimator to figure out how much square footage you need. It does the math to help you choose the right unit size for your storage needs.
- Share facility information and access codes with a trusted friend or family member. They can take care of anything that might come up while you're away on deployment.
- Don't use the same boxes over and over. Cardboard eventually wears out, gets moldy or invites insect invasions. Treat yourself to fresh storage boxes every few years.
- Keep personal items, bedding and important documents at the front of your unit for quick, easy access. Operate on the principle that last in is last out, and always leave clear paths between stacks.
Amenity Packed, Convenient and Affordable
With three convenient locations south of the base, our modern facilities feature a wide selection of storage units. We offer affordable space, from just a few boxes to bikes, boats and cars. Trust your belongings to our high-tech, digitally recorded video and individually alarmed units, and have the flexibility to manage your account online – anytime, anywhere.
Backup You Can Count On
Whether you're calling the base home for now or positioning for future deployment, our Safeguard teams are always here to back you up. Stop by, and visit with our friendly staff at the Palatine, Darien or Addison, IL self-storage facilities. You have plenty to take care of, so count on us to help make your job a little bit easier.
