Storage units come in a variety of sizes. Not everyone will need a jumbo storage unit, but these spacious rentals can come in handy for certain people. For example, if you own a business that relies on inventory, then you probably already know how tricky it can be to predict how quickly your inventory will run out. To ensure you can steadily supply your customers, you can purchase more inventory than you need and store the items in a jumbo storage unit for convenience. Some businesses might even use these super-size storage units for light workshop use.
Jumbo storage units can also be appropriate for personal use. For example, if you’re in the military and you’ve received notice of an overseas deployment, you’ll probably want to hang on to your furniture and other possessions without paying for a house or apartment. Long-term jumbo storage units are your solution.
POUCH Self Storage provides a full range of self-storage options in Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino counties, for business and personal use, including storage units of all sizes. We even offer a free moving truck to make your transition as easy as possible! Call us at (800) 378-4598 today for more information.
RVs support a unique and engaging lifestyle, but ongoing maintenance and RV storage are major concerns for RV owners. If you’re a new RV owner or you’re thinking about purchasing one of these homes-on-wheels, you should give careful consideration to your RV storage options and your maintenance tasks.
Perform a Thorough Inspection
RV owners must perform routine inspections of every inch of the vehicle. This is especially important as you prepare the RV for long-term storage. You should check all life-supporting systems such as the water, gas, and waste disposal systems. Drain the water, turn off the main gas supply valve, and cover the gas regulator. Take a look at the engine compartment to make sure the carburetor is clean and the stud nuts are securely fastened. Check the bolts on the fuel line, clean the fuel filter and air cleaner, and check for signs of damage on all areas of the RV.
Preparing the Batteries for Storage
Some RV owners recommend removing the batteries for proper storage. Always remove the negative terminal first before taking out the battery. If need be, you can clean the batteries with a mixture of equal parts baking soda and water. Remove and clean the terminals, and spray them with terminal dressing to prevent rusting. Check the water and electrolyte level. Then, give the batteries a full charge before storing them. You’ll need to check the battery unit periodically to check the charge.
Preparing the RV for Storage
When you prepare the RV for storage, you’ll need to empty out the kitchen of any remaining supplies. Remember to check in the fridge and freezer. Defrost the freezer and leave both doors open. Leave all of the cabinets, drawers, and doors open. Check that all appliances are unplugged and turn off the main breaker.

If you’ve recently rented a storage unit, take a few minutes to think about the best way to pack your items. Delicate china requires extra care to prevent cracking or chipping during transportation or other problems during long-term storage.
You can see a demonstration of how to pack china safely by watching this video. It recommends getting together a stack of clean packing paper. Place a dish on top, then fold the sheet over and place another plate on the stack. Repeat this process until you have a stack of plates, then fold all sides of the paper in together and place the stack on its side in a padded dish carton.
