How to Clear Up Space During a Move
Are you getting ready to move into a new home? Now is the perfect time to sort through all of your belongings and decide what should come with you to your new space. Your family can save time and money and reduce stress by donating unwanted items before the move instead of bringing them along.
Encourage your family to start inspecting the items in their rooms as early as possible. They can create separate piles for items they want to keep and items they no longer want. Items in good condition can be donated to secondhand stores, libraries, and other community locations.
If you have items that you want but do not want at your new house, consider keeping them here at Pouch Self Storage ! See if our Long Beach, Rancho Cucamonga, Pasadena or any of our Orange County self-storage services are right for your upcoming move by visiting us online at www.pouchselfstorage.com or giving us a call today at (888) 258-9626.

Gather all of the belongings that you plan to put into a self-storage unit in one location. You can then take detailed measurements of the height, length, and width surrounding the perimeter of these items.

Moving Cattle in Australia
The following pictures were taken by a relative of Pouch President, John Yelland, documenting the cattle trains at Helen Springs Station. Only in Australia will you see this!
Some interesting facts:
There are 17 trucks with 3 trailers and 2 decks per trailer. This means there are 102 decks of cattle and approximately 28 cattle per deck, which totals to 2,856 head of cattle. The cattle weigh approximately 500 kg each (1,102.3 lbs.). The sale price for cattle at Longreach is approximately 165 cents/kg (75 cents/lb.). Therefore, each animal will be sold for $825. The total revenue from this analysis is $2,356,200.
For the 72 truck/trailer combos there are 6,192 tires on the road.

Getting Your Household Items Ready for Professional Movers
Although movers handle the labor-intensive aspects of relocating, there are plenty of ways you can get your home and belongings ready for their arrival. The more prepared you are when the movers arrive, the easier it will be for them to transport your possessions. Use these tips to get everything ready for moving day :
Take the Time to Purge
Transporting items that you never use is a waste of time for you, and for the movers. Instead of dragging along belongings for which you have no use, spend some time throwing away what you do not need. Clearing out the closets and drawers before you start to pack makes it easier for the movers to get you set up in your new home or office.
Label All of Your Boxes
If you don’t want to sort through dozens of boxes that are randomly placed into your new home, you should consider labeling them. Once you finish packing a box, clearly label it with the room where it belongs. When a moving company has these labels to work with, they can easily leave the boxes in the rooms where you want them.
Finish Packing Before Moving Day
It is important to completely finish packing before the movers arrive at your house. Try to aim to complete the job the day before the movers arrive at the latest. This way, you are free to oversee the logistics of your move and the movers are free to do their job.
Whether you need last-minute packing supplies or storage for belongings, Pouch Self Storage can help simplify the moving process. Our self-storage facilities are spread around Orange County to give you the convenience you need.
