One of the best options when considering Thousand Oaks self storage is to use the mobile storage units supplied by Box-n-Go Storage. They offer many distinct advantages and benefits over traditional self storage sites.
Follow the following advice to ensure your storage is successful:
Use Packing Materials – To protect your furniture which is valuable to you and can be fragile use cardboard and bubble wrap. Sharp corners and edges can be particularly vulnerable to chipping or cracks so use more packing materials in those places or use corner protectors.
Allow Access – We all want to get maximum storage out of a unit by packing as much into it as possible so saving money. However the reality is if we need to access to the rear to retrieve something it is a burden to have to completely unload the unit. By leaving some space to move through the unit and not cramming you also allow airflow.
Cover with cotton – It is a common misconception that covering furniture totally in plastic is a good idea. However it can cause moisture build up which encourages the growth of odors and mold. Using cotton sheets to wrap and drape on furniture allows your items to “breathe” preventing moisture. Old cotton sheets are ideal for this purpose or specialist covers can be purchased.
Hopefully these tips will give you a great Thousand Oaks self storage experience and you will find many more useful tips on this site.

While self-storage is nothing new, the portable storage system has changed the age-old system into a convenient and simple storage process. Introduced quite a few years ago, mobile storage units provide an efficient and easy way to pack and store items. Companies like PODS® and Public Storage have, over the years, developed various portable storage concepts, including the portable storage delivery systems and several storage containers sizes, which they referred to as PODS® for Portable On Demand Storage (Box-n-Go Storage is not associated, sponsored or affiliated with PODS Enterprises, Inc.

Today, Box-n-Go Storage has taken the concept pioneered by Public Storage and PODS Enterprises, Inc. a step further: we can deliver one or several portable storage containers that are modular and sized right, at the same time, straight to your door in Southern California.
