5 Easy Airport Parking & Car Storage Tips, Anchorage, Alaska

Need a secure place to leave your car while you travel? International Self Storage’s International Airport Road location offers safe and affordable airport parking for anyone flying out of Anchorage. Whether you’re leaving town for the weekend or traveling around the world, you can trust International Self Storage to take good care of your vehicle while you’re away.

Do These 5 Things Before Leaving Your Car In Airport Parking

Clean Your Car Beforehand

When you drive a cluttered car every day, it’s easy to ignore the mess. But when you return from your trip and haven’t seen the inside of your car in a while, all that clutter will suddenly become ten times more annoying. Take a few minutes to tidy up your car before you leave it in airport parking, and it’ll feel incredibly satisfying when you return.

Long Trip? Disconnect Your Car Battery

Of course, this is very important during the depths of an Alaskan winter. Disconnect the battery any time you’re planning to leave your car in long-term storage to avoid draining it over time.

Use A Windshield Cover During The Summer

We’re used to protecting our cars from the cold, but if you’re traveling during the summer, it’s worth considering heat too. If you use outdoor airport parking when it’s warm outside, think about investing in a windshield cover to protect the inside of your car from excessive heat and light.

Keep Valuables Out Of Sight

The airport parking area at International Self Storage is highly secure, but if you’re leaving anything of value in your car, place it out of sight in the glove box, or hide larger items under the seat.

Save Money By Parking Smart

Don’t pay inflated airport prices for airport parking when there are independent lots available for much cheaper rates. International Self Storage’s dedicated airport parking lot is within easy walking distance of Anchorage International Airport. Like the airport itself, it’s accessible 24 hours a day. Unlike a major airport, it offers short-term and long-term parking at reasonable prices that won’t break the bank. Don’t make travel any more expensive than it has to be — call International Self Storage at (907) 563-3287 before your next trip, or visit their website to learn more.
