As a contractor, you need to have a decent number of tools and equipment on hand each workday. While you may have room in your work vehicle to keep various equipment items, it can be hard to keep track of your supplies if they are not organized. Keeping your equipment organized allows you to find it easier and get the job done more efficiently. We’ll walk through how to organize your equipment in a self-storage unit to better manage your day-to-day work schedule.

1. It keeps your tools and equipment organized

Utilizing self-storage can help keep your business equipment organized and easily accessible. You’ll find a wide variety of storage unit types and sizes, allowing you to select the right storage unit for you. Whether you have larger equipment or small appliances, you can find storage unit sizes comparable to a closet to a garage. Many facilities offer a range of storage unit sizes from small 5×5 units to large 10×30 units.

2. It’s a more affordable workshop

It can be helpful to view self-storage as an extension of your business rather than an additional expense. Renting a spare workshop or workspace can cause your expenses to add up fast. However, a storage unit can have dual functionality for both storing business supplies and utilizing the space for work when needed. Avoid having to store your equipment in your truck or at home and have a dedicated space for your items when you utilize a self-storage unit.

3. It’s a central location for your equipment

As a contractor, you are needed in several different places. Renting a self-storage unit in a centralized location can help you access your equipment easier. Whether you choose a storage facility that is near home or in an area you work frequently, it allows you and any other employees to access equipment when needed while simultaneously keeping them in a secure location. Plus, many of our storage facilities at Absolute Storage Management offer 24-hour access with personalized gated access.
