Renting a storage unit is similar to moving. You need to pack your items
appropriately to protect them from damage and to organize the space in
your storage unit effectively. Fortunately, most storage units offer the
packing supplies you need on-site, to make the process as convenient as possible.
After you rent a storage unit, you will need basics like boxes, box cutters,
packing tape, bubble wrap, and newsprint. Depending on what you plan to
store, you may also need dust covers for electronics, furniture covers,
and mattress bags. You may need rope to secure your belongings, and everyone
who rents a self-storage unit needs a sturdy lock.
At POUCH Self Storage, not only do we sell all of these supplies are our
storage facilities in Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino counties,
but we also offer a
FREE moving truck to everyone who rents a unit to make the transfer process simple and affordable.

Shredding documents is part of doing business, but taking care of the process
on your own could be a costly mistake. There are practical reasons that
in-house shredding doesn’t work, such as machine maintenance, and
security reasons, such as exposing sensitive corporate information. Here
are some reasons you should look for a facility with
secure on-site document shredding for all of your document destruction needs.
Keep Your Information Secure
When you handle shredding in-house, you open yourself up to several security
risks. First, you may have documents that contain information not all
employees should see but that they could easily come across somewhere
in the shedding process. This risk is especially prominent for medical
offices, who risk violating HIPAA compliance guidelines, and law firms.
Other businesses may simply want to reduce the number of people who see
things like customers’ Social Security numbers or credit card numbers.
Doing shredding in-house raises the chances this information can be accessed.
Likewise, competitors and identity thieves may realize your trash is a
treasure trove of information when you don’t use a secure facility with
on-site shredding who can take of disposal for you.
Use Time More Efficiently
Shredding documents is not generally an efficient use of your employees’
time, and it could distract them from the tasks you really need them to
perform. The more paper your company generates, the more time your employees
will need to dedicate to shredding, which could significantly impact the
efficiency of your business. Doing shredding out-of-house lets your employees
focus on doing their jobs instead.
Avoid Shredding Machine Issues
Many companies who attempt in-house shredding quickly find out how frustrating
it can be. Shredding machines are sensitive, and with a large number of
people using them, it’s inevitable many people will do things to
damage the machine, like overfeed paper or run staples through it. The
time spent keeping the machine operational is a further drain on productivity.
