Small contractors face challenges that large companies avoid, but even a large company will sometimes need temporary storage. You may not always have a dedicated building where tools and equipment can be stored, materials can be gathered, or that can be accessed by employees or subcontractors around the clock. These are a few of the many benefits a storage unit at Abba Self & RV Storage has to offer, in addition to a wide variety of indoor and outdoor storage options.
Out of Town Solutions
Contractors working on a project from out of town need a safe place to keep their tools and materials. A storage unit includes gated access, individual alarms and sprinkler systems, and the convenience of 24 hour access. Month-to-month storage rental allows you to pay only for the storage space and time you need, and makes it easy to pack up and move on when the project comes to an end.
Benefits for General Contractors
General contractors may need to store tools and equipment for a variety of work, from building a foundation to putting on the roof. The staff at a storage unit company can help you select the right size storage unit for your needs, and provide you with some insight on getting everything organized for easy access to everything when you need it. Outdoor, RV storage areas are available for temporary storage of heavy equipment, and units can accommodate a wide variety of tools and even a vehicle or two.
Storing Equipment and Supplies
On-the-go contractors who visit multiple job sites will appreciate the ability to stop by and swap out the tools or supplies they need between stops. For example, a cleaning service may need a floor buffer at the morning’s first job, and ladders with window cleaning supplies for the second. Having easy highway access to your storage unit means you don’t have to clutter your vehicle and carry everything around the entire day, and that can improve your company image while working on site.
Access for Subcontractors
Not all contractors work daytime hours. For companies that burn the midnight oil, a storage unit means your subcontractors and employees can get to tools and supplies around the clock without rousing the boss or making a long trip back to headquarters. Coded gate entry is an easy way to track who comes and goes will give you extra protection for your property as well as creating a documented record of who comes and goes.
