Self-storage is a great business storage solution. A self-storage unit can be used to store tools, retail inventory overstock, pharmaceutical samples, business documents and office equipment. Renting a self-storage unit is also a perfect storage solution for contractors and construction companies. Many construction contractors like painters, electricians and contractors work out of their vans and trucks. They do not have an office or building to store their equipment. Many successful contractors keep their overhead low by storing tools, equipment and bulk construction materials in a self-storage unit.
Choosing a self-storage facility in a centralized place, closer to a project location, makes it much easier for a contractor to transport equipment and tools. Using a self-storage unit for construction storage, instead of storing on-site, will also help to protect the items from weather damage, vandalism and theft.
Most self-storage facilities have drive-up storage units for quick loading and unloading of 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 materials can be accepted at some storage facilities, so the contractors can continue working and not have to wait around for supplies to be delivered.
Construction tools can be kept in good working condition while in storage by following a few basic tool storage tips. Small contractor tools should be stored by type in plastic bins in a self-storage unit. Plastic bins protect the tools from dirt, dust and other types of damage. The bins are also easy to stack and carry from the storage unit to a truck driven to a construction site. Make sure to label the boxes with its contents so you will be able to find a specific tool when you need it.
