Whenever you’re shopping for a service, it’s important to do your research, and the self storage industry is no different. It’s important to make sure that you find the right location, price, and amenities, but did you know many storage facilities also offer discounts and specials?

While you’re searching for the perfect self storage unit, be on the lookout for some of these discounts and other promos to get a good deal on the right unit.

First Month Deals

One of the most common deals you’ll find on self storage is first-month rent promos, which are typically either $1 or completely free first month’s rent. Major storage facilities, such as Safeguard Self Storage and Extra Space Storage, typically offer such specials on new storage rentals.

Free Truck Rental

While some facilities can offer you savings with storage rentals, others can help you cut the cost of transportation. Rather than having to rent a moving van or truck, storage facilities, such as Uncle Bob’s Self Storage, will likely offer a free moving vehicle rental with a new storage rental.

Senior and Military Discount

Military and Senior Discounts

Many places will offer a general discount for senior citizens and military servicemen and women. Major storage facility groups, such as Uncle Bob’s Self Storage as well as more locally-owned facilities, offer these discounts, especially when located near military installations.

Web-Only Specials

Browsing for deals

Some storage facilities will offer web-only specials, such as 15% off regular monthly rent. This can be found at storage facilities such as StorageMart.

Specials and discounts can be a great way to save some money while getting the storage unit you need. Feel free to search through our storage facility directories to find a deal that meets your needs or call in to one of our many storage facilities to ask if they have any specials going on.
