I was about to close the store for the night, when suddenly I saw a black Suburban pulled right up front our driveway. I thought it was one of our tenants who has the same SUV. However, he never comes in at this time and never parks like that. He always parked on the yellow line. So I went out immediately to see what he wants. To my surprise, the SUV had four people inside with headsets and a Lap Top. I looked closely and all of them were wearing bulletproof vests and had firearms. So I asked if I can help them (As if I can do any better). I also told them that they were blocking the driveway and should park at the designated parking area. The driver apologized but then added that this is the best spot for them and will only take a few minutes. I did not say anything, went inside, and started closing the entry doors and ready to call 911. Honestly, I was scared and thought; what if they held up our store? Then, the driver stepped out and explained that they were undercover agents and was tipped that a marked vehicle will be passing on our parking lot. He also said not to worry because they had the area surrounded and under control if anything happens. Well, fortunately nothing happened. On my way out I asked them, if everything was fine. The officer said, fine and asked if he can park at the corner parking space to observe for a little while. I replied yes he can. Then I thought to myself guess we had some security for the night!
In general, people tend to accumulate a great deal of personal belonging over the course of their life and, more often than not, run out of room for all that stuff. Fortunately, storage units can solve the headache of trying to figure out where to put all of your belongings. Here are a few common reasons to rent a storage unit:
Make Room for Guests
Do you have a long-term house guest coming into town? Are you expecting a new addition to your family? Spare bedrooms often become a catchall for our home’s clutter, including housing boxes, waylaid pieces of furniture, or other misplaced belongings. Whether you need to make room for a seasonal visitor or for a new permanent resident, additional storage can provide the solution. Clear out a spare bedroom quickly and efficiently by renting a storage unit.
Store a Collection
A storage unit is a great place keep a collection that does not otherwise fit in your home. Whether you have compiled a record-breaking comic book collection or have been charged with keeping the family china, self-storage allows you to securely store your belongings while still freeing up space in your home.
Sell Your Home
If you are selling your home, eliminating clutter is a key component of home staging. Ridding your home of excess belongings can help to make your space look roomier and more appealing to a prospective buyer. Move your nonessential items into a storage unit to help sell your house more quickly.
A storage unit can be a key component of an effective moving plan. Before you move, go through your belongings and determine what to keep and store and what to toss . Once you know what items you are working with, rent a storage unit to temporarily house your belongings while you wait for your home to be prepared.

It’s easier to box your items so you can create a visual understanding of your needs. If this is not easily achievable, simply make a mental picture of how many items need to be stored and the general size of your collection.Determine How Effectively Items Can be ConsolidatedAfter identifying items that will be making their temporary home in a Pouch self-storage unit, try to consolidate them into the least number of boxes or bags possible.

Some renters choose to separate various items based on how they pertain to various aspects of their life such as work-related papers or strictly home-related items, such as clothing, artwork, and furniture.Establish a BudgetBe sure to establish a budget before visiting a Pouch self-storage center in your area. Your size options may be determined by this figure, which will simply mean you have to be more creative in packing and consolidating items into a smaller space.Pouch Self Storage Centers offer an array of size options to accommodate your needs.

Crazy moving story! A guy rented a 12 x 20 Storage unit. Close to closing time he came into the office and said he didn’t think he would be able to close his door to the unit. If you guessed that the reason he couldn’t close the door was because HE WAS STORING AN AIRPLANE, you were right! So after some adjusting we were able to close the door. You can store anything with Pouch Self Storage!
