Turn a Shipping Container Into a Secure Garage
No matter where you go, you see them all the time: Work trucks with ladders, cords, tool boxes and all kinds of equipment and power tools. Work trucks hold a business’s livelihood, allowing the job to be completed and customers to be happy. For drivers to be well-organized, they have to have the right tools and parts available for any given job at any given time.
Keeping Your Work Truck Safe and Secure
The trucks and all the valuable pieces of equipment need to be parked overnight, over weekends and extended holidays. Parking them outside of your business or the driver’s residence is not enough. Employers need a place to secure and stow any items that can attract the attention of potential thieves looking for an easy grab and some quick cash.
If the driver is lucky enough to have a larger garage, the task becomes easier. They just need to pull in and perhaps lock up the items that might be tempting for a potential predator. Other drivers might have yard space with well-lighted areas, security cameras and perhaps a few security guards or even some guard dogs. However, what about those who have to park outside of a guarded location?
The Expense of Power Tools
Are you aware of how powerful and valuable your power tools are on the job? At the average construction site, you might find a hand-held drill that can reach a speed of 2,000 revolutions per minute or a bulldozer weighing an incredible 49 tons. With these speeds, dimensions and weights around it’s clear why safely handling and storing these expensive and mighty pieces of equipment is imperative. In addition to safety, maintaining the power of these tools and machinery requires proper storage that protects them from damage and weather.
Why Not Convert a Re-Used Shipping Container?
You can now park your tools and your truck in a portable storage container converting it into a portable garage complete with the security needed to allow your drivers to have peace of mind without worrying about insurance claims or police reports. By locking the truck and everything in it in a secure place, there is no need to spend time rearranging equipment to secure areas. There is no wasted time going through locked boxes the next day.
ContainerOne can help make these portable secure garages a reality. Containers make great storage units when extra storage is needed for that excess inventory, and it saves you a lot of money. Buying a container instead of renting them from other companies is the best method to save your company money.
