3 Helpful Self-Storage Tips for Newlyweds, Anchorage, Alaska

Whether you are already living with your partner or plan to move in together after you get married, fitting everything into a single home can be complicated. Fortunately, with the help of self-storage facilities, you can choose what to keep and what to put away. Here’s how you can help ensure your marriage starts off on the right foot. 

Using Storage Efficiently as a Newlywed

1. Calculate Your Space Requirements 

One question you’ll be asked when you rent a self-storage unit is how large of a space you need, so carefully evaluate the amount of objects you need to store. Think about the width and height of bed frames, dressers, entertainment centers, recreational equipment, and anything else you may need to store. If you aren’t sure about storage space sizing, ask to see available units in person. 

2. Use the Right Moving Supplies

Uself-storagesing the right moving supplies is crucial to keeping items safe and organized, so look for high-quality boxes, packing paper, and organizational shelving. Check the edge crush test (ECT) ratings when you look at boxes, which can help you to determine how many pounds of other boxes you can store on top of them. When you pack items for long-term storage, make sure they are covered to protect them from dust and debris accumulation. 

3. Take Full Advantage of Your Storage Unit

After you rent a storage unit, make sure you are using it to its fullest capacity. Hang fabric items from the rafters to save space, and visit the unit regularly to rotate out holiday decorations and unused clothing. 


Transitioning into married life can be demanding, but renting a self-storage unit doesn’t have to be.
