Construction Equipment and Tool Storage
Renting a self storage unit is a perfect storage solution for contractors and construction companies. Many small businesses including painters, electricians and contractors work out of their vans and trucks. They do not have an office or building to store their equipment. These companies can keep their overhead low by storing tools and equipment in a self storage unit. Another way for contractors to keep overall costs down is to by using a self storage unit for the bulk storage of construction materials, supplies and tools until these products are needed on a work site.
Having a self storage unit in a centralized place, closer to a project location, makes it much easier for the contractor to transport equipment. Using a self storage unit for construction storage, including tools and equipment, will help to protect the items from damage from rain, temperature extremes or being vandalized if kept on a construction site.
Most self storage facilities have drive-up storage units, allowing for accessible storage for contractors to easily load and unload their equipment. Convenient computerized gate access hours allow contractors, electricians and plumbers to pick-up their tools before they need to be on the job site. Deliveries of building supplies and materials can be accepted at some storage facilities, which allow the contractors to continue with their work and not have to wait around for that special tool, equipment or supplies. Larger storage units are also good for construction or contractor storage of larger tools or equipment. Security systems such as video surveillance, individual storage unit alarms and gated gate and building entry gives the contractor peace-of-mind that their equipment will be safe while in storage.
Construction Tool Storage Tips
