4 Summer Uses for Your Storage Unit, Anchorage, Alaska

Wintertime is the most popular season for many storage facilities. During this season, people use storage units to house summer clothes, boats, and sporting equipment. While storage is certainly important during cold weather, there are plenty of uses for it in the summer, as well.

Winter Clothing

The most obvious use for a storage unit during the summer is to house winter clothing. Boots, sweaters, and jackets are bulky and can take up a lot of room in your closet or garage. Self-storage allows you to securely store these items while also preserving your precious closet space.

Dorm Room Items

Students who live off-campus during the summer may also benefit from storage. Renting a unit allows you to securely store your textbooks, furniture, and school supplies until next fall. To save you the trouble of hauling these items home and back to campus, choose a storage facility near your school so you can easily access your belongings.

Seasonal Clutter

Holiday lights, Christmas trees, and Halloween costumes are fun, but they can contribute to household clutter. Even if you store these items in an organized manner, you could still wind up with piles of boxes stacked in your attic or basement. Stashing these items in a storage unit makes them easy to find while still keeping your home neat and tidy.

Teaching or Sports Supplies

While certain school districts allow you to keep supplies and equipment on campus during summer break, this isn’t always an option. Rather than trying to make room for these items in your home, consider a storage unit to keep them safe until the following school year begins.
