Here’s What You Can Store in Your Portable Storage Buildings

Written by Small Business Magazine on October 24th, 2018. Posted in Uncategorized

Produced in one-fifth the time and at half the cost of site-built homes, manufactured housing assembled in a controlled, factory environment uses fewer materials and generates 35% to 40% less waste than comparable site-built units. That’s why portable storage buildings are being embraced as a financially and environmentally efficient option for all types of residential and commercial storage needs. Don’t think you need extra storage? Think again — here are just a few of the many types of belongings that portable storage buildings can help keep safe and well protected.

Vehicles

If you work in the transportation industry — or any industry that requires sufficient upkeep of a large number of vehicles, for that matter — then used modular buildings may be the right investment for your needs. From trucks to vans, trailers, and more, any number of large vehicles can be stored for safekeeping in a modular storage building. Don’t let your vehicles gather rust or wear as a result of improper storage — invest in their longevity with a storage system that’s secure, protective, and reliable.

Lawn Tools

Similarly, landscaping businesses and other professionals working outdoors can keep all of their equipment safe by storing tractors, shovels, leaf blowers, rakes, lights, hoses, and more in an appropriately sized modular storage building. Even equipment that doesn’t have a motor is susceptible to damage through the elements — it doesn’t take long for gardening tools to become rusted in the rain. And covering this equipment isn’t very protective. Invest in a modular building for an efficient storage solution.

Other Machinery

It doesn’t end there — modular storage buildings are particularly beneficial for construction companies, which can safely store all high-end equipment. This includes bulldozers, excavators, telehandlers, and more. This equipment is very expensive and needs to be stored properly, making modular buildings an efficient and affordable solution.

Keep in mind that any residential accessory building larger than 200 square feet will require a building plan review and permit. Regardless of size, any electrical, plumbing or mechanical work will require a permit and all building locations must honor zoning and subdivision set backs. Fortunately, portable storage buildings are versatile for residential and commercial use and rarely require electrical or plumbing work.
