Do you remember the days when your car was safe and sound in your garage? Well, many people do not remember those days as the garage has become an extra storeroom. The garage is great for a multitude of purposes. But the time when it was a home for your beloved automobile has long gone. As our homes seem to become bulging with our belongings and possessions, the garage becomes a default storage unit for the home. Your car is left out in the cold where it is exposed to the damage caused by the sun, wind, and rain.
When the sun beats down on the car in your Tustin driveway or road, the direct sunlight will do harm. If your car is garaged it will be safe from damaging UV rays. Heat is one thing, but destructive, long-term damage to interiors (and exteriors) occurs with extensive exposure to UV rays. We can use alarms and other devices to secure our vehicles from theft, but they will be more secure in a locked garage. It will also not be exposed to any damage by accidental dings from other road users.
An ideal solution is to free your garage by moving your car to a storage unit provided by Box-n-Go in Tustin.

What’s usually involved in getting a storage unit

- Renting a truck
- Packing your items and loading them on the truck
- Driving to the Tustin storage facility
- Unloading the truck
- Storing your items in one or several storage units
- Paying for storage space even if you don’t use all of it
To help you store your stuff like a pro, we’ve put together this list. It can help you avoid the common mistakes when using traditional storage units.
Top 5 common mistakes when using low-cost storage in Tustin, CA
1. Picking a unit that’s too small.
You definitely want to get the most bang for your buck by picking cheap storage units in Tustin, CA that are the right size for your needs. Don’t try to scrimp too much on the unit size. You don’t want to be that person who wastes hours struggling to cram piles of boxes, furniture, bikes, and more into a storage unit that simply isn’t big enough.
2. Wrapping breakable items with newspaper.
Newspaper makes great packing material, right? After all, it’s free, easy to find, and using it to pack up your glassware and breakables is the environmentally friendly thing to do, right?
Newspaper ink has a nasty habit of bleeding when it’s packed around items in one of our storage units. This can leave your belongings covered in dark stains that are pretty much impossible to clean off. Skip the newspaper and use plain kraft paper, old t-shirts, or towels instead.
3. Not labeling your boxes before placing them into your storage facility.
Despite your best efforts to make sure you only use storage facilities in Tustin to pack away items you don’t need access to any time soon, there’s always a chance you’ll have to haul something out of your storage unit on short notice.
If your boxes are all clearly labeled with the contents, then finding what you need will be easy. While not labeling your boxes means you’re in for a long, frustrating day of digging through your storage units.
4. Using storage facilities to stash away food.
I know it sounds a bit odd, but you wouldn’t believe how many people end up clearing out all their kitchen cupboards—food and all—and packing the contents away in boxes at our secure self-storage facility serving Tustin. Over time, that food starts to rot, mold, and attract pests, leading to all sorts of headaches and property damage at our storage facilities in Tustin.
5. Storing stuff you simply don’t want anymore.
Whether you need to rent self-storage units for a few weeks, a couple of months, or you even need long-term self-storage facilities in Tustin, the last thing you want to do is pay to store stuff you never want to see again.
Before you pack your storage unit, take the time to sort through your belongings, donate any good, reusable items to a local charity, and toss the rest in the trash. That way you’ll only pay for the storage in Tustin you really need!
