3 Ways Self-Storage Helps the Military

November is Military Family Month, though at Tidewater Drive Storage Center we wish the best for all active-duty military and retired vets in the Hampton Roads area every day of the year. If you currently serve or have served, thank you for your hard work and dedication. In appreciation, we offer military discounts at our Norfolk self-storage facility, and invite you to contact us to see if you are eligible.

Self-storage can come in handy if you are currently stationed at NAS Norfolk or Little Creek. We are conveniently located near both bases and offer clean, climate-controlled units for your needs. When you rent a unit, it can provide some ease to your busy lives.


Deployment. Say you’re being deployed for several months…do you have a plan to keep your valuables safe? Most likely you are leaving behind a car or motorcycle, plus other items you may not want to leave unguarded. If there is no family nearby to watch over your things, self-storage is an affordable option that lets you deploy with peace of mind. Tidewater Drive Storage Center offers a range of different-sized units, some large enough to keep a vehicle while you are away.

New Orders. Sometimes life changes happen too quickly. One day you may receive orders to transfer to a new base, like Norfolk, and you must report before you can fully settle into a new home. Self-storage gives you a place to keep your belongings while you find the right apartment or house to begin your next adventure.

Retirement. Once you’ve completed your service, you may wish to place roots and enjoy a well-earned retirement at home. Over time, you may accumulate items like furniture, seasonal decor, and outdoor equipment you refrained from buying while you were active duty. Rather than let them clutter your home, consider self-storage to help organize belongings you won’t use year-round.
