We all know that many types of businesses use storage units to safely store their retail inventory overstock, business documents and office equipment. But self-storage is also the perfect solution for construction companies, contractors, and other specialised workers like plumbers, to store their equipment and tools.
Plumbers are hired to do a wide range of jobs, including fitting bathrooms and kitchens, installing hot water tanks or fixing heating systems, installing air conditioning units and responding to any emergency situation that can arise. To do this, they need and use a variety of tools and plumbing materials such as wrenches, pliers, pipes, and fittings of all sorts.
But many don’t have a “brick and mortar” location to keep all this equipment and generally work out of their trucks, vans or even their homes. Storing everything in a self-storage unit is a cost-effective solution for plumbers to store their piping, equipment and tools all in the same place and allow their vehicles to be more organised and less cluttered. As the overall cost of booking a unit is significantly lower than paying for a warehouse or storefront, it also helps them keep their budget in check.
Business Self Storage is an easy and affordable way to increase your storage space, without any long-term contracts or commitments.
If you’re a plumber, as part of your daily work it’s likely that you’ll need to use a variety of plumbing materials on a regular basis and buying them in small quantities only when you needed them, can become quite expensive and isn’t really time-efficient. Having a secure central location to store these items in bulk along with your tools, will allow you to cut on costs in the long term.
Also, plumbers sometimes are required to travel a lot between work sites. This can get tricky when it comes to storing everything your work requires. A self-storage unit allows you to store your tools in a convenient and safe location.
Let’s check some of its main advantages:
- Cost-Efficiency for Storage Space
It’s a lot easier and cost-effective for most businesses to adjust their self-storage space needs than it is to make a long-term warehouse space lease contract, especially if a large section of the warehouse is not being used. Our secure storage units are available in many different sizes, so you can book the exact amount of storage space you require at any given moment.
- The Convenience of Centralised Locations
It’s usually nearly impossible for plumbers to transport all their required tools and parts necessary for bigger jobs, this is why choosing storage facilities that are close to areas where you usually find work, is a more effective and easier way to have equipment, materials and replacement parts on hand to use at the work sites.
- Increased Protection and Security
Entry to each storage unit is controlled and all of our storage facilities are under constant 24-hour CCTV surveillance, so you can rest assured that your valuable equipment and tools are well protected at all times.
Our business storage solutions are the perfect option for your plumbing business.
