Self Storage is a great storage solution for both homeowners and businesses. For businesses, a self storage unit can be used to store retail inventory overstock, pharmaceutical samples, business documents and office equipment and tools. In past blog posts, we have shared that self storage is a perfect storage option if you are doing a home renovation or remodeling project. But, where do many construction workers, contractors, plumbers, electricians, and painters store their tools and equipment? They store it at a self storage facility! ezStorage makes it easy for contractors, painters, and plumbers to store their equipment with our construction storage solutions.
Contractors, plumbers and painters work out of their vans, trucks or out of their homes; most do not have “brick and mortar” locations or buildings to store their equipment. The cost of renting a storage unit can be significantly lower than paying rent and utilities for a storefront or a warehouse. Using a self storage unit for storing building materials and tools helps contractors keep their overhead low and their budget in check. And the right size self storage unit is a convenient place for storing building materials as well.
Building Material Storage
Some self storage facilities have drive-up storage units, which allows for easy access for contractors to load and unload their equipment. Some self storage facilities also have computerized gate access hours starting at 6am for contractors, painters and plumbers to access their tools early in the day. And some facilities even offer 24 hour gate access. Security amenities such as video surveillance, individually alarmed storage units and key coded gate access gives contractors peace-of-mind that their equipment will be safe while in storage.
