5 Items You Should Put in Self-Storage, Anchorage, Alaska

It’s difficult to feel comfortable in a cluttered home. At the same time, you don’t want to give away or sell most of your belongings just to have some extra space. International Self Storage offers the perfect solution for this dilemma: put some of your items in self-storage in Anchorage, AK. Here, the experts provide a list of the five most popular items that end up in storage units.

5 Belongings to Keep in Self-Storage

1. Unused Appliances

You might have an extra toaster or microwave you’re not currently using. Maybe your landlord provided you with a washer and dryer, but you still have a functioning washing machine you’re not ready to sell. Unused appliances are perfect for self-storage.

2. Extra Furniture

You may have furniture you’re not using or don’t have space for. Moving couches, chairs, and tables into self-storage is a great way to gain additional space in your home without getting rid of furniture you might need later.

3. Files & Documents

self-storageThere are a variety of files and documents you should keep, including medical records, personal bills, and tax returns. If you don’t need daily access to these records, it’s a good idea to put them in storage. That keeps them safe and out of your way at the same time.

4. Holiday Items

In most cases, you don’t need to get rid of Easter or Christmas decorations because they can be used again next year. But storing several boxes with holiday adornments will fill up your closet or attic quickly. The best place for your seasonal items is your storage unit.

5. Books & Photographs

You may have a collection of books and photographs you want to keep but don’t have time to read or sort through right now. Your self-storage unit is a great place for these items. To avoid damaging them, it’s best if you store books and photos in plastic containers with a lid that seals tightly.
