Construction sites are busy places with a lot going on all at once. Supplies are being delivered, walls are being erected, rooms are being wired, plumbing is being installed, windows are being placed, and on and on – workers, equipment, and materials, it doesn’t take long for everything to be all over the place. Success comes from keeping track of what can easily become a mess. Organization is really the only way any construction site can work smoothly and safely.
PUPS Containers offer portable storage containers that do wonders for helping to organize a construction site while providing the convenience of having everything you need on hand at all times. They can increase productivity and the safety of your site. Whether a container is used to store tools or supplies (or both), portable storage containers help make construction projects run more efficiently.
Adding a container to your site will change how your site operates for the better. Read on to hear what a PUPS portable container can do for your construction site and your team.
Convenience and flexibility
The most obvious advantage a mobile container can bring is its flexibility and convenience. Being mobile means it can arrive on any day your project needs it to, and be taken out of the way just as easily. If it makes sense in one location on the job site during initial phases of the project, it can be moved to other locations as the project progresses. It will work for you and your site.
In fact, finish at one site, and then move the entire container to your next job without needing to waste time to empty and refill it. To be sure, our truck’s lift system keeps your container level whenever it is moved, leaving the contents inside secure in their place. Even if you’re in between jobs, PUPS can store your container at our facility until you need it again. The flexibility and convenience that mobile storage containers bring to construction projects are of great value from this perspective.
Of course, there’s a whole other perspective of a portable storage container’s convenience. Having one on your job site means that you can leave your supplies and equipment onsite at all times, there whenever you need something. Don’t waste time loading and unloading tools and materials every day when you can keep them all onsite in a mobile storage unit. This is convenience for a construction site done right.
Equipment, tools, materials – these are all expensive items that can make or break any construction project. PUPS portable containers are excellent solutions for keeping all of your equipment and supplies onsite without them being at risk of theft or damage. Our professional line of containers are made heavy duty with corrugated steel paneling, are completely water resistant, and feature double swing doors with pad locks. They’re easy to get into when you need to, and can keep unwanted visitors out just as easily.
Completely secure, a portable container will safely house the items that make your construction site operate, keeping tools and materials protected from both dust from the site and any harsh weather as well. Have the peace of mind knowing that nothing’s gaining access here unless you want it to.
Safety and organization
Construction sites can be dangerous places, and any misstep or accident can cause serious injuries to workers, or even death. Hard hats and steal toe boots are necessary for a reason, but the greatest strategy to keeping employees safe is keeping the job site organized.
With a mobile storage container as a resource, items can find a home and remain out of the way when they are not in use. The same thing goes for materials; there’s no need to have drywall, wiring, and paint all out when you are installing the foundation. Leaving everything out can create unnecessary hazards. Having a home inside a secure container minimizes the possibility of disorganization, and, as a consequence, any danger that may be caused by it.
Your workers have been educated in safety for a reason; ensure they exercise that education by setting them up with the tools to do so. Organize your site and increase your workers safety with a portable storage container.
The extra benefits
The versatility of a portable storage container for a construction site is practically unlimited. With the space to house materials, your company will have the opportunity to purchase supplies in bulk for a lower cost. Purchase extra materials for a lower price, and then save them for the next job, safe and secure in the mobile container. The container should pay for itself in no time this way.
A portable storage unit can also provide shelter from the rain or snow (or even the hot sun!). It provides additional space that you can use to hold meetings with your team or clients. Set up a desk and chair inside, and you can even have an office space onsite as well.
Thankfully, mobile storage containers are also very low maintenance. Once one is dropped in place, there’s very little you need to do with it, besides locking it at night, and giving it a sweep when it needs cleaning. With something as easy as a mobile storage container, it’s a ‘leave it, and forget it’ equation.
Portable storage units are incredible ways for construction companies to keep their job sites organized, workers safe, costs reduced, and efficiency increased. They are an affordable way to accomplish all of the above, and require very little to arrange. You talk with us, we’ll set it all up as per your needs.
