Self storage can be a vital part of running an efficient and successful business. You may not have room to store everything you need for your business on your own commercial premises. Inventory, stationery, office supplies, packaging, and spare office furniture can be bulky. If your business space becomes crowded or cluttered, it could reduce efficiency and you may find it difficult to locate the things you need. To use self-storage units near you in the most effective way, there are a few business storage guidelines you should follow.
Start by Making a List
The first step is to decide which items to store on your premises and which to allocate to a self-storage unit. Stationery, supplies, and equipment which is in regular use are best kept on-site. You can store office equipment which you use less often. A self-storage unit is also the ideal place to keep spare inventory. You can retrieve it easily as soon as it is needed. To make it easier to locate individual items, group similar objects together. Make sure all boxes and containers are clearly labeled.
Pack Things Carefully
To avoid damage to your valuable stock and supplies, make sure you use suitable packing materials. Stack furniture neatly. Box things carefully using sturdy boxes of an appropriate size. Use smaller boxes for heavier items. Enclose delicate objects in bubble wrap for protection. Stack heavy boxes underneath lighter ones. Consider installing shelving in your self-storage unit.
Create a Map of the Storage Unit
A hand-drawn or computer-generated sketch of the storage unit, with a map of everything that is stored inside, can be extremely useful. To prevent hours of searching, create a list of exactly what you have stored and where.

One of our tenants came in and said she has got to get in her unit and organize it. She mentioned before that she has some old clothes she needs to go through and take to the Goodwill. A while later she came back into the office carrying a big box of clothes and to sign out.
As she was leaving, an old homeless woman happened to be walking by the front of the facility. We could see out the office window and witnessed something wonderful. The tenant was speaking to the old woman and began handing her clothes from the box. They both smiled as the tenant held several garments up to her verifying size to fit. It looked like they were done and started to walk away.
Then, the tenant hurried back to the old woman, removed the scarf around her neck and wrapped it around the old woman’s neck and shoulders. The tenant hugged the old woman and waved goodbye. The old woman continued on her way with a smile on her face that she did not have earlier.

Whether you live in your RV full time or only use it for occasional trips, there will probably be occasions when you need to place it in storage. There are a few important precautions you should take before storing your RV . improperly stored, RVs can develop mold and may even become infested with pests or rodents. With a little preparation, you can ensure your vehicle remains in peak condition during its time in RV storage.
Wash, Wax, and Check Seals
The first thing you should do is thoroughly wash and wax your RV, paying special attention to the roof, which is particularly prone to dirt and the sun. Check that all silicon, rubber seals and areas of caulking are intact. Leaky or damaged seals can allow water to enter, which may cause expensive damage to your rig.
Prevent Mold Growth
To prevent the growth of mold, keep your RV dry while in RV storage. Specially designed roof vents can help. These allow air to circulate while keeping water out. Make sure you prop open all cupboard, fridge, and freezer doors.
Install Screens to Prevent Pests from Entering
Screen off all openings to the outside. This will stop bugs from flying into the rig and will also block any possible entrances for mice, rats, or other pests. Specially designed screens are available for this purpose. To further discourage an infestation of rodents, keep the rig free from food and nesting materials.
Switch off the Electricity
First, make sure your battery is fully charged. Then, turn off the electricity using a battery disconnect switch. If your rig runs on solar power, you can leave that connected.

A long time customer of POUCH Victoria came into the office today and said you guys are really “The bomb! Your customer service cannot be beat, I love this place!” We thanked her and said, “To us our customers here in Rancho Cucamonga are “The Bomb!”
Busy day! Last Sunday, we realized that our parking lot was not quite big enough. The day started typically but the afternoon became a little more hectic. Our facility front was one big traffic jam. We had three big trucks from new tenants unloading into their units. Two of the big trucks had to park side by side.
Every single parking spot was occupied. Tenants were coming and going. All the carts were being used and the lifts were going non-stop. Yet, in spite of all the hectic activity, all the tenants accomplished their tasks without difficulties. Everyone shared the carts, took turns using the lifts and stayed out of everyone else’s way. Another fine example that Pouch, “makes it easy as it should be.”
