Storage for Plumbers and Contractors

Self storage is a great storage solution for many types of businesses from retail to construction to sales representatives who work from home or on the road. A self storage unit can be used to store retail inventory overstock, office equipment and business documents. But where do construction contractors, plumbers, electricians and painters store their tools and equipment? Many store tools of the trade at a self storage facility! ezStorage makes it easy for contractors, painters and plumbers to store their equipment with our construction storage solutions.

Plumbing Equipment Storage

Plumbers are trained to do a variety of jobs including fixing a clogged toilet, installing or fixing home heating systems or hot water tanks, installing air conditioning units, fitting bathrooms and kitchens and responding to emergency calls. Plumbers use a variety of tools during the course of the day. They require a variety of tools and materials such as pipes, Teflon tape, plungers and augers of all types. A self storage unit is a convenient place for storing plumbing tools and equipment.

Contractors, plumbers and painters usually work out of their vans, trucks or their homes; most do not have “brick and mortar” locations or buildings to store their equipment.  The cost of renting a storage unit is much lower than paying for rent and utilities for a storefront or a warehouse. Using a self storage unit for plumbing tools and equipment storage helps contractors keep their overhead low and their budget in check. Storing plumbing equipment at a self storage facility is a cost-effective solution for plumbers to easily keep their tools, equipment and piping all in one place and allow their vans or trucks to be less cluttered.

Storing Plumbing Equipment in Self Storage

Self storage facilities have computerized gate access hours typically from 6am to 9pm for contractors, painters and plumbers to access their tools before they need to be on the job site. Some self storage facilities offer 24 hour gated-access so plumbers can access their storage units at any time in the day. Safety and security measures such as video surveillance, individual storage unit alarms and keypad entry gates and building entry gives plumbers’ peace-of-mind that their equipment will be safe while in storage.
