Self Storage for Contractor Tips

Self Storage for Contractor Tips


For a contractor, in order to get the job done, it’s important to have easy access to the necessary tools. A self storage unit is a great option for contractors because it allows their storage location to be just as flexible as they are. Renting a storage unit is a convenient and cost effective solution for construction workers, plumbers, painters and other contractors.

How to Store Tools in a Contractor Storage Unit

  1. Ensure Tools Are Clean Before Storage- As a general rule of thumb, ensure your tools are completely clean before putting them into storage. To clean your tools, wipe them down with a damp rag to remove any dust, dirt or other debris. Before placing the tools back into storage, ensure they’re completely dry.
  2. Utilize Small Clear Bins for Storage- Group small tools together in small plastic bins. This will help to protect your tools from dust or dirt settling on your tools during storage. To make it easier to find your tools, label the outside of the bin with a list of the tools inside.
  3. Organize Your Storage Unit Strategically- For a contractor, time is money. To minimize the amount of time spent looking for tools inside of the storage unit, place all of the more commonly used tools closer towards the front. Additionally, if the storage unit is a 10x10 or above, create an aisle leading from the entryway to the back.
  4. Utilize a Climate Controlled Storage Unit- A climate controlled storage unit is essential when storing temperature sensitive items like tools. Overtime, if your tools aren’t stored in a climate controlled storage unit, corrosion can form which will damage your tools.
