Storage Units 101: Essential Self-Storage Tips for College Students, Anchorage, Alaska

While the college experience can be a lot of fun, dorm life can sometimes be a bit hectic—especially when you’re finished with the school year. The self-storage experts at International Self Storage in Anchorage, AK, know that it isn’t easy or convenient to haul your stuff back home for the summer. Nor is it always easy to store items in your dorm.

The following storage tips will help you find simple solutions for these common problems:

  • Summer Storage: Towing all your school supplies back home for the summer is no picnic—especially if you’ve accumulated a lot of belongings during your time at school. Rather than driving everything home and then hauling it back when school starts again, leaving your possessions in a storage unit during the summer months can provide a more convenient alternative.

  • Location: International Self Storage is conveniently located to the University of Alaska Anchorage and has storage units ready for move-in. Your items can remain safely stored throughout the summer and be available for easy pickup when you return for classes.
  • Extra Space: There’s nothing worse than moving into a new dorm and finding that you don’t have space for everything you brought from home. Storage units are an excellent solution for this problem, providing you with a secure location to store additional items that won’t fit into your dorm room.

Whether you need a full-sized storage unit after the end of the school year or simply need a mini storage unit for your extra items, International Self Storage has plenty of options to fit your needs. For more information on pricing and availability, call (907) 563-2655 or visit them online.
