This past Saturday, we were going through our normal routine for the day: greeting & giving our tenants their keys. All of a sudden, one tenant caught our eye when she parked in front of our office. She came in to the office smiling and greeting everyone with “Happy Peace Day.” She then added, “Well, I don’t look scary for my costume, but I do want to send a message of Peace and Harmony. Maybe this will make a statement”. At the end of the day, we realized what she had meant.
Halloween is right around the corner, but the message of Peace instead of Fear is a positive gesture that our tenants bring, and we like to provide the same to them.
Take full advantage of your local self-storage facility by using it to store items for which you have no room. If you plan to relocate some of your belongings to a storage unit, though, it is essential to get a space that is the right size.
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. Talk to your self-storage specialist at POUCH Self Storage about your options, or you can go to our website and use our unit size calculator to help you determine what size storage unit you need.

In the last week or so the fall flowers have come into full bloom here at Tustin. Since the parade, it seems the flowers have become a big crowd pleaser. We get all kinds of people coming by and taking pictures and asking who our gardeners are. Their comments have been that we have the most colorful and best landscape around here. We are pleased to hear it!

Moving into a new home should be enjoyable for the entire family. If you start planning early, you can experience a quick and easy move that allows the family to efficiently get from your old home to your new one! Utilizing the right tools, like POUCH self-storage centers , can help you enjoy the most efficient move possible. Follow these tips for a stress-free move:
Start Planning Early
Getting the family involved in the process as early as possible is essential for a successful move. Sit down with the family to talk about where your new house is located, when you will be moving, and what responsibilities you will need to take care of before you can leave your current home. Work together to create a moving timeline that will help you stay on track!
Get the Right Packing Supplies
Investing in quality packing supplies is important for getting your belongings to your new house without losing or damaging them. Purchase boxes in a variety of sizes, along with packing tape, paper and bubble wrap, and markers. Decide which boxes will work best for different items in your home. You can use the paper or bubble wrap to secure loose items, and don’t forget to make a list of what is inside each box with a marker.
Sort Through Your Belongings
Each member of the family can be responsible for packing the items in his or her room. As the moving date gets closer, ask each family member to sort through his or her belongings. Everyone should create a pile of items to keep, items to donate, and items to discard. This will help to get rid of unused or unwanted items before the move.
Take Advantage of Self-Storage
Make your move as smooth as possible with self-storage! You can store items you do not use regularly or do not want to bring to your new home, but do not want to give away. This will make it easier to focus on moving what you need.

Late Friday afternoon we saw some people hanging out on the corner of our parking lot. We were curious as to what they were doing. A few moments later, we saw a guy taking a video. Shortly after, we saw a TV van leave the scene. We aren’t exactly sure what the story of the day was, but we’re certain if it hits the news our facility will be on it!
With the right supplies and attention to detail, you can plan a long distance move with minimal hassle. Take the time to prepare to relocate so you can complete all of your tasks before the big day. Whether you are moving on your own or with your family, use these tips to plan and execute a successful move:
One of the best resources during a move is time. As soon as you know you are moving, start organizing your belongings to make the move as simple as possible. Create a timeline that clearly lays out all of the tasks you need to complete before you go. This helps you stay on track throughout the entirety of the moving process .
Take your time packing to ensure all of your belongings make the trip safely. Stock up on packing materials like strong boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and peanuts or newsprint paper. Use these items to provide padding and protection for all of your belongings.
Self-storage centers are extremely helpful before, during, and after a move. If you are trying to sell your home, place excess belongings inside a POUCH self-storage unit to make your property more attractive to potential buyers. If you are moving to a smaller residence than where you currently live, place your items into storage until you find space for them. If you need to move in a hurry, you can put your possessions into a storage unit and return for them when you have the time.
Whether you are moving or just need to clear out some space, Pouch Self Storage is here for you. With convenient locations around the Orange County area, including Pasadena, Rancho Cucamonga and Long Beach, we make it easy to safely store your belongings.
