Kinchela, a native of Ventura, will serve as a professional moving and storage consultant specializing in business to business relationships, and provide administrative support for Yapp’s franchises. She has more than eight years of professional customer service experience and has extensive knowledge of the Central Coast.

“I understand that even under the best conditions moving and preparing for storage is stressful,” Kinchela said. “I want to help make the process as stress-free as possible, and to educate others about the many benefits of PODS.”

“Having been born and raised in Ventura, Crystalynn has a deep understanding of the community, which will help her to better serve our customers,” Yapp said. “She will continue our philosophy of going the extra mile to make sure every PODS customer is satisfied.”

PODS containers are available in two sizes — about 8-by-8-by-12-feet and 8-by-8-by-16-feet — and can be delivered to use as temporary or long-term storage at a specified location or local PODS Storage Center.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
