Protecting your tools, equipment and supplies is critical on any construction site. Shipping containers offer a variety of unique storage benefits to ensure that your tools stay protected from the weather, organized, safe and secure.
We understand that moisture often poses a bigger risk than cold or hot temperatures. Secure-Rite Storage Containers are all ventilated to combat condensation and to lock out moisture. All units are completely weatherproof, so you can relax knowing that your equipment won’t be subject to harsh environmental conditions.
Containers not only protect your tools from the elements, they provide ample space to keep your tools organized. Using storage bins inside the container will keep items like gloves, hats, safety glasses, and small items in their place. Hanging shelf brackets and other accessories can be used to store and organize larger items. Shipping containers come in a variety of sizes, offering versatile options to meet the different needs of each construction site.
Construction is a hazardous industry, which means an organized site is a safer site. Traffic flow, public access management, materials storage and waste management are all components of creating a safe work environment. When there is a secure, neat way for tools and dangerous equipment to be properly put away and organized, site safety is heavily improved. Since many job bids often require a safety plan, including Secure-Rite office containers, storage units, and first aid rooms in your planning shows potential clients that you are serious about safety.
Tool theft and loss of valuable equipment will delay project timelines, as well as cost time and money. Insurance may cover some financial losses, but uninsured costs can easily exceed the amount covered by insurance. There are two main sources of equipment theft or loss from construction sites – break-ins and misplacements.
Thieves who are looking for a quick way to make money are generally not willing to work very hard for it. Therefore, the more difficult you make it for them to steal your equipment, the less likely they are going to take the time to do so.
According to a leading national insurance company, most thefts from construction sites occur in the evening, usually within an hour of the workday ending, or on weekends. If a thief cannot enter a site, access the equipment, and then be clear from the premises in less than 10 minutes, they will usually move on to easier targets.
