3 Situations Where Self-Storage Is Essential, Anchorage, Alaska

When driving past a self-storage facility, have you ever wondered what people keep there or why they rent a unit instead of finding available space at home? In fact, there are a variety of reasons why people use these handy storage solutions. Below are a few of the most helpful.

Times You May Want to Invest in Self-Storage

1. You’re Moving

Renting a self-storage unit for a month or two allows you to migrate your belongings gradually instead of having just one or two days to transfer everything from one place to the next. Your move will be less stressful when you start transferring the nonessentials weeks ahead of time. When the big day comes, you’ll have only the essentials left. 

2. You Have Too Much Stuff

Maybe your garage has become a place for baby clothes and toys you may need again in the future. Free up these spaces by renting a self-storage unit and moving things you don’t need right now into the space. You’ll be able to use your closets again and your car will finally fit into the garage.

3. You’re Renovating

Many homeowners renovate to upgrade their houses. Unless you rent a self-storage unit, though, this construction period can be chaotic. Don’t move everything from the area being renovated into the rest of your home. Instead, empty the room you’re working on and place all the furniture and fixtures in storage. This gives the construction crew a clean slate to work and mitigates the mess so you can live as normally as possible until you can use your new space.


You can minimize stress and take back your home from clutter with the help of self-storage. To get started on reducing the chaos today, call International Self Storage in Anchorage, AK, at (907) 563-3287 to learn about their available unit sizes and competitive pricing. Visit the website for information on their temperature-controlled units. They can securely store your off-season adventure gear, clothing, family heirlooms, and your vehicle when you don’t need it.
