Self-Storage Pros Share Tips for Storing Winter Items , Anchorage, Alaska

With spring right around the corner, it’s time to clear your home of winter items and bring out your summer belongings! To make room for warm-weather gear, the professionals at Anchorage, AK’s International Self Storage have a few helpful tips for storing items you won’t need until next winter. Their knowledge comes from 30 years of experience providing snowbirds with a wide range of self-storage options to keep their belongings secure.

Below, Alaska’s self-storage experts share three recommendations for storing winter gear:

  • self-storageUse Protectors: If your storage unit isn’t climate-controlled, humid conditions could attract insects. These bugs can destroy clothes, upholstered furniture, and anything else made of fabric. To keep clothing safe, place it in plastic bins with secure lids. Drape plastic tarps over furniture to keep it protected.
  • Store Large Items in the Back: Do you need to cram a lot of stuff in a storage unit? If so, you’ll optimize the space if you place large items in the back. Chances are it will be a while before you need skis, snowmobiles, or sledding gear again. By placing these bulky items in the back, it will be easier to get what you need before next winter.  
  • Group Items: If you plan to store a lot of items, you can easily lose track of smaller items. To keep everything organized, group belongings according to theme. If you have boxes labeled “winter accessories” and “sports equipment,” you probably won’t lose a glove or an ice skate.

If you need a secure place to store your belongings, the team at International Self Storage is ready to help. They have storage units in various sizes and some are even heated.
