How to Store Electrical Equipment

Self storage is a great storage solution for self-employed electricians and electrical companies to store equipment and tools.  Rather than keeping these items at home or stuffed in a work van, electricians can store their tools and equipment at a local self storage facility.  With 45 facilities throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C., ezStorage makes it easy for electricians to store their equipment and materials near a job site with our construction and electrical storage solutions.

Self storage facilities have computerized gate access hours typically from 6am to 9pm for electricians to access their tools before they need to be on the job site. Some self storage facilities offer 24 hour gated-access so electricians can access their storage units at any time. Safety measures such as video surveillance, individually alarmed storage units and keypad restricted entry gates and building doors, give- electricians’ peace-of-mind that their equipment and materials will be safe in secure storage.

Electricians are tradesman that design, install, maintain and troubleshoot electrical wiring systems in homes and commercial or industrial buildings. There are different concentrations for electricians including inside wiremen, outside wiremen, service electricians and construction electricians. Each concentration has a different focus and tools. Electricians can install new electrical systems, repair power outages for homes and businesses, and troubleshoot and repair electrical issues. Electricians use a variety of tools during the course of the day. There are a variety of tools and materials for electricians such as wires, tape, power drills and saws, and smaller tools such as pliers, screwdrivers and wire strippers.  They also will have a supply of lighting fixtures, fuses and other electrical equipment.  A self storage unit is a convenient place for electrical tools and equipment storage.

Electricians and electrical contractors usually work out of their vans, trucks or their homes; most do not rent buildings or offices to store their equipment. Using a self storage unit for storing electrical equipment and tools helps contractors keep their overhead low and their budget in check.  The cost of renting a storage unit is much lower than paying for rent and utilities for a storefront or a warehouse. Storing electrical equipment at a self storage facility is a cost-effective construction storage solution for electricians to easily keep their tools, equipment and wiring all in one place allowing their vans or trucks to be less cluttered.
