In general, people tend to accumulate a great deal of personal belongings over the course of their lifetime and, more often than not, run out of room for all those items. Fortunately, storage units can solve the headache of trying to figure out where to put all of your belongings. Here are a few common reasons to rent a storage unit:
Make Room for Guests
Do you have a long-term house guest coming into town? Are you expecting a new addition to your family? Spare bedrooms often become a catchall for our home’s clutter, including housing boxes, waylaid pieces of furniture, or other misplaced belongings. Whether you need to make room for a seasonal visitor or for a new permanent resident, additional storage can provide the solution. Clear out a spare bedroom quickly and efficiently by renting a storage unit today.
Store a Collection
A storage unit is a great place to keep a collection that does not otherwise fit in your home. Whether you have compiled a record-breaking comic book collection or have been charged with keeping the family china, self-storage allows you to securely store your belongings while freeing up space in your home.
Sell Your Home
If you are selling your home, eliminating clutter is a key component of home staging. Ridding your home of excess goods can help make your space look roomier and more appealing to a prospective buyer. Move your nonessential items into storage to help sell your house more quickly.
A storage unit can be a key component of an effective moving plan. Before you move, go through your belongings and determine what to keep and store and what to toss . Once you know what items you are working with, rent a storage unit, temporarily house your belongings, and wait for your home to be prepared.

Today’s happening is about our newly installed KIOSK. So many of our tenants are curious about it. Some even thought it was a ATM machine. I explained what it is and its purpose. I feel this will be very helpful for those tenants who prefer to pay at the KIOSK rather than drop-off a payment thru the night slot. The jury is still out on its success.
In the past, every time we do a skip check on this unit, it gives us some goose bumps when we roll up the door to see what’s inside.Seeing a pair of legs behind the door makes us wonder what this person is doing here and how in the world did he get inside.Only to find out, that this “man” is not a man but a “mannequin” after all. Well this week he moved out. Hopefully it doesn’t have friends in other units waiting to be discovered.
This was a busy weekend over here at Tustin Self Storage. On Saturday we had our Shredding service here in honor of our Pouch Founder John Yelland who was Elected to the self Storage Hall of Fame. We even had a customer from one of the sister storage who had just missed the truck he traveled over here just for the shredding service.
This was one week end that we could have use the Tustin Police traffic control people were parking on the street just goes to show you people wait for a long time to go to storage. We at Tustin offer many different services from Storage ,Shredding, and yes even Clothing donation from Planet Aid and this is one service that a lot of customers use. We at Tustin would like to say to John Yelland Congratulations!!!
There are times when it gets so busy that tenants are trying to get the carts as soon as they come in. Even if they need the cart later they always get this ahead of time so they don’t have to wait until other tenants are done using it. So this is what one of our tenants would do. She would come here early and place the cart next to her car as if she’s loading some stuff. But look at what she’s loading. This is it. So we would politely explain to her and to other tenants as well to be considerate and use the carts as needed.
A quick thank you from a happy Pouch Self Storage Customer
Document shredding can serve a multitude of purposes. From protecting your security to safely disposing of your family’s or business’s confidential documents, paper shredding can be an important and useful tool. Shredding important documents not only eliminates unnecessary clutter, but it also helps to protect your personal information and that of your business or organization. Still not convinced? Here are just a few of the many benefits of document shredding.
Protect Your Personal Identity
- Identity theft is becoming an all too common occurrence in the United States. Often, identify theft occurs when a victim’s trash is combed through for pieces of personal identification. Protect your family by arranging for regular on-site shredding of important documents including bank statements, credit card statements, credit card offers, obsolete tax records, and medical or legal information. As a general rule of thumb, you should be shredding all documents that contain a signature, account number, or social security number.
Destroy Obsolete Records
- While receipts, bank statements, tax information, and other important documents should be maintained for some time, at some point you will be ready to dispose of outdated records. However, you’ll want to eliminate clutter while still maintaining your personal security. Obsolete paperwork can be destroyed safely and efficiently with an on-site shredding solution.
Fulfill Business Requirements
- If you run an organization that handles or disposes of documents containing the confidential information of clients or consumers, you are legally required by the Federal Trade Commission to discard documents containing personal information on a routine basis. By utilizing a shredding service, you can help to avoid the legal liabilities associated with failing to dispose of the appropriate documents.

In addition to personal and business storage solutions , we also offer record management and document shredding services for individuals and businesses throughout Orange County.
