March 2, 2023 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCommercial Storage

Construction workers require a wide variety of tools and equipment in order to be fully prepared for any given situation. From remodeling to building various structures, a construction worker always needs a large breadth of gear in order to get the job done right. However, having such a large toolbox can make for a difficult time when it comes to placement, organization, and storage. 

Having a centrally-located warehouse to properly keep and maintain all of your construction materials makes for an efficient, tidy, and safe job site. CRS Moving & Storage is able to offer just that. Our professional storage and moving experts have perfectly catered our weather-proof warehouses to meet your specific construction storage needs. 

3 Tips for Construction Storage

When it comes to storing your construction materials, it’s important to keep preservation top of mind. A good tool can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars, and maintaining it can be important to the future of your business. With that in mind, three tips for construction storage include the following: 

Keep Everything Dry

No matter what you are storing, keeping it protected from the elements is important, especially water. Your electric tools and bags of cement stand to be damaged, if not completely ruined, by exposure to damp or wet storage conditions. There’s nothing worse than coming to get a saw or a power tool out of your unit and discovering you need to purchase a new one. Storing your construction equipment in a weatherproof facility can help make sure your tools stay safe and dry.

Use Hard Material Bins

Divide your tools up and do so using bins constructed of hard materials, like hard plastic. It’s vital to not put your valuables in traditional moving and storage bins, like cardboard boxes. Proper storage bins will give your construction materials the support they need to remain preserved in perfect condition for whenever you need them. They are also waterproof and last longer.

Bins also allow you to create a labeling system and keep better track of your inventory. Broken or misplaced items are easily noticed and replaced if you properly mark every bin or even utilize a clear bin strategy. 

Employ Shelves

Shelves not only maximize your storage space, but they also allow for better circulation and visibility. Don’t waste precious time sorting through materials trying to find what you need. Using your bins, you can employ labels and shelves to make both sorting and searching easier. 

CRS Moving & Storage has your best interests in mind and offers a wide variety and range of storage units with shelving options.
