• POUCH Happening – Great Things to Be Said About Randy!

    I’ve been at Anaheim for 13 years, as of yesterday. Wow. I have to say that your wonderful self storage in Anaheim has been the one stable thing in my life, since I’ve been on the road all that time, and I am so glad my things have been safely in your hands. Thank you. I am truly blessed.

    And the person who really has helped me from the get-go is Randy. Yes, I know he’s in Tustin, now, but he is such a gem. When the company made on-line payments a reality in 2009, Randy is the one who took the time to show me how to do that, by phone. And whenever I called there about something, he was always friendly, helpful and besides answering my question, he’d always make me laugh with his wonderful sense of humor. I can’t tell you the number of times he’s set the whole tone of my day with his customer service mindset. Thank you so much for having him on your staff. He’s truly made a difference for me.

    And one more note: It’s too bad that the Orange County Chamber of Commerce does not have an award program like the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce does: They honor people like Randy who truly have provided outstanding, customer service. Just know that if Pouch were in Las Vegas, I would nominate Randy for a Customer Service Excellence award. He’s that good.

    Most Sincerely,

    Ms. Matteson Barcklay ( a.k.a Miss 632)

  • Tips for Storing Your Wooden Furniture

    To avoid damaging your furniture from improper storage, carefully prepare each piece before putting it into storage. Read on for a few tips for safely storing wooden furniture.

    Know the Threats to Your Wooden Furniture
    The primary threats to wooden furniture in a storage facility are moisture and humidity. These can both cause mold and mildew, making a climate-controlled storage facility a great option. Avoid over-packing as trying to cram too many items potentially cause your furniture to crack, chip, or break. If you plan on storing your wooden furniture for a long period of time, you may want to invest in a climate-controlled storage unit .

    Arrange the Furniture Carefully
    If you can, disassemble your furniture prior to storing it, making it much easier to arrange. Store your furniture upright, and slightly elevated off of the floor to increase ventilation and decrease the risk of mold growth. Avoid storing furniture directly up against the walls of the storage unit. Concrete walls can store and transfer moisture to your furniture. Use canvas or linen covers to help protect your items while keeping them ventilated.

    Use a Little Extra Effort
    Treating your wooden furniture with linseed oil or furniture polish will help your furniture stay moisturized and help prevent mold growth. If the state in which you live has termites, do not store the furniture on used wooden pallets.

  • Preparing Your RV for Storage

    Many RV owners only use their RVs for a few weeks every year. Once the travel season is over, you may be ready to store your RV at a vehicle storage facility. There may be a number of steps to take to prepare your RV for storage, depending on the season and your state’s climate.

    Find a High-Quality RV Cover
    RV covers are available in many different sizes, and you will want to find one that fits your RV very snugly. Find one that is made of a breathable material that will allows the air to circulate around your RV. This will help prevent mold and mildew growth. A good RV cover is particularly necessary if your RV storage facility is outdoors. It will help protect your RV from dust and rocks that can scratch and damage the RV.

    Clean and Repair Your RV Prior to Storing
    Do a thorough inspection of your RV, look for cracks, holes, and tears. Seal cracks and holes to prevent water from entering the RV. Don’t forget to repair all fabric tears as well. Clean the inside of your RV completely, removing food from the cabinets and vacuuming the carpeting and upholstery. Any crumbs left behind can attract rodents, which can infest the RV and cause quite a bit of damage. Clean the outside of the RV, and grease the tires to keep the rubber from cracking while the RV is being stored.

    Shut Down All RV Appliances
    Clean out your refrigerator and defrost the freezer. Leave the refrigerator doors open, and put a box of baking soda inside to prevent odors. Unplug all appliances and turn off the RV’s main circuit breaker. Clean the RV’s air conditioning filters, and empty and wash holding tanks.
