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.
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.
