Tips for Preparing Your RV for Storage

Self Storage Anaheim Fall is in the air, and now is a time when many RV owners are preparing their vehicles for the winter season. Rather than leaving your RV out in the elements during the coming months, consider renting an RV storage unit. By placing your vehicle in storage, you can rest assured it will be ready for your adventures next year. Let’s review some essential tips that will help you prepare your RV for storage.

Clean the Exterior
An important step in preparing your RV for storage is to make sure that its exterior is clean and free of dirt or road debris. Before you place your RV into storage, take the time to thoroughly wash and wax its exterior surfaces. While you are washing your RV, you can also inspect various locks and seams for signs of wear and tear.

Maintain the Tires
Your RV’s tires are among its most essential components. Without proper preparation, your tires may deflate or become damaged when your RV is stored over the winter months. If you want to protect your tires, make sure to inflate them to the correct PSI, before you place your vehicle into storage. You can also choose to cover your tires with protective fabric once your RV has been moved into storage.

Change the Oil
Before your RV is ready for winter storage, it will typically need a fresh oil change. Leaving dirty oil in your RV’s engine is a recipe for mechanical problems during your next road trip. Along with changing your oil, you can also refill your coolant system and check the levels of your transmission fluid.

When you are seeking secure RV storage for the upcoming winter season, be sure to get in contact with the team at POUCH Self Storage. Our facility offers spacious RV storage in Lake Forest, and we will also be happy to provide you with personal storage for your belongings. To learn more about our current vehicle storage options, give us a call at (800) 378-4598.

Should Your Store's Inventory Be Stored in a Climate Controlled Unit?

Self Storage Anaheim

A fully stocked inventory can be a valuable asset to your business. However, if you do not store your inventory correctly, you may find that your products deteriorate and become damaged over time. To rest assured that your inventory is properly protected from extreme heat and cold, it may be a good idea to rent a business storage unit. Here is a look at some signs that your store’s inventory should be stored in a climate controlled unit.

Your business is located in a hot area.
When you are deciding whether climate controlled storage is necessary for your inventory, you should think about the average weather conditions in your area. If temperature conditions become extremely hot or humid during the summer season, it may be wise to invest in climate controlled storage for your inventory. The same philosophy applies during the cold winter months, when freezing temperatures can damage your products.

You sell delicate or fragile items.
Climate controlled storage can protect your inventory from humidity, excess heat, and freezing temperatures. If any of your company’s items are very delicate and susceptible to changes in temperature, it is a good idea to invest in a climate controlled storage space. Without climate controlled storage, you may find that your inventory becomes warped, discolored, or otherwise damaged.

You have experienced previous problems with inventory damage.
Damaged inventory can be devastating to the profitability of your business. When you are recovering from a major inventory loss, be sure to seek out a climate controlled storage unit for your next batch of products. A storage facility that is completely climate controlled will make sure that your inventory is completely protected.

When you are seeking storage units near San Juan, look no further than the business storage services that are available from POUCH Self Storage. Our company specializes in climate controlled storage services, and we will make sure that your inventory is protected. To reserve a storage unit for your business, give us a call at (800) 378-4598.
