• Changing Your Home’s Style With the Seasons

    Does your home décor feel outdated now that summer has turned to fall? Try something new! Changing your décor is a fabulous way to celebrate each new season. Check out some of our top tips :

    Interior

    Select New Colors
    You can easily change your décor by changing the colors! There’s a variety of ways to use colors to represent the spirit of each season. Now that fall is here, replace your cool summer colors with autumn-appropriate tones such as browns and oranges. Then when winter arrives, you can go back to cool colors with blues and whites or even add a touch of glamour with black and metallic décor.

    Find New Accent Pieces
    Once you decide on your colors, you can start shopping for new accent pieces to create your new theme. Do yourself a favor and don’t spend a lot of money to change into your new style; just stick to replacing accent pieces that are less expensive! Show off seasonal colors with pillows or a throw blanket on the sofa. Warm up your space for fall with new area rugs that include  season-appropriate colors and textures .

    Add Accessories
    As you know, the right accessories can enhance any space. This is especially true for seasonal accessories that can take your home to the next level through the year! The fall season offers plenty of opportunities for fun and attractive accessories, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, and even Christmas. Accessorize your space with candles, leaves, pumpkins, and other fall-friendly items.

    Store Items Between Seasons
    Investing in new items and accessories is always fun, but it can leave you with more items than you can store. Keep your home free from clutter with a self storage unit! As you redecorate your home each season, put last season’s items into a self storage unit to keep them organized and ready for next year.

  • POUCH Happening | “We Move You Free”

    Box truck advertising is working!  A lady comes in & asks “can I rent your truck to move from 1 house to another?” After Linda explained the advantages of renting a storage space as a ‘staging area’, the lady said ‘o.k., I’ll think about it’. – An hour later she came back to rent & used our ‘We Move You Free’ service.  Our new happy customer said “Thank you for having the truck there, because I never would have thought of it on my own- I would have just drove by!!”

  • POUCH Happening | ADA Compliant Doors

    Pouch Self Storage – Anaheim, recently replaced some of our roll up doors with those that are ADA compliant. These doors are easier for handicapped persons to operate. Some of the spaces chosen already had tenants who were not handicapped. They were picked because of entry way proximity.

    One of our lucky tenants had returned after 7 months to start pulling out her holiday decorations and noticed the door. She loaded her cart and came back in the office to return her key. She smiled and said, “ When I was here last, I was just old. Now, after 7 months, I return to find that I’m handicapped too! “ We chuckled a bit and then I explained what it was all about. She asked about the big orange stripe across the door. I told her it’s to show that it’s an ADA compliant door. She said, “ Oh, I thought it was in case my eyesight got worse, I could still find my unit. “

  • Unlocking the Puzzle of Self Storage

    Plan
    Just like any other task, packing your things into a storage unit can be made much easier with the proper preparation. Make sure you  keep a record of the items you pack  into each different box so you can avoid digging through every box in your storage unit to find what you are looking for. It helps to pack items from the same room in the same boxes, especially if these boxes are going to be transferred to a new house or apartment.

    Label
    Not only should you keep a list of the contents of each box, you should consider making copies to attach to the boxes themselves. Your boxes should be labeled with large, legible numbers or letters. Proper labeling will make it very easy to identify the box you need quickly.

    Store
    When it comes to physically storing your belongings in the storage unit, it is important to do so carefully. Make sure you use sturdy boxes and fill them to capacity so they do not crumple, bend, or break, this helps to utilize the cubic space upwards and save money by renting a smaller storage unit. Store your belongings according to how often you use them—items you frequently use should be kept towards the front, while those that will go untouched for a while can remain in the back.

  • POUCH Happening | Thank you Serrano Horse Stables!

    Recently we had some asphalt work completed here at Trabuco Self Storage.   This upgrade left us in a bit of a pickle when trying to find parking .  As a result of our good standing relationship with our neighbors at Serrano Horse Stables , we were able to park our company truck used for our ” We Move You Free ” program, staff member vehicles and some of our RV customers on their property for a few days.  We would like to publicly thank Serrano Horse Stables for helping us, in our time of need, so…. Thank you to Serrano Horse Stables from Trabuco Self Storage and Yelland Properties Inc.

  • POUCH Happening | Security

    One of our tenant’s customers came in to buy some packing supplies.  In the mean while, another tenant hit the door of the tenant making a packing supply purchase and left a dent in his door then drove off.  The tenant who had his door damaged came into the office and reported the incident.  He asked if there’s any way to help identify the person who hit his door and hold him responsible.  In full confidence we said “yes” and pointed to the video surveillance camera.  We replayed the footage and discovered who caused the damage.  We called the customer and inquired about the incident.   This incident made our tenants feel secure and confident that our video surveillance is really part of our security and not just a selling tool.
