Several years ago, we decided to remodel our carport/utility room, turning it into a multi-use space. I'd have a nice home office space, and my wife would finally get her sewing room.
There are a lot of "moving parts" to any company. Along with daily operations, office security is a vital part of maintaining a business. Video doorbells and surveillance cameras often protect today's modern, connected homes.

Regardless of your industry, a must for any worksite is plenty of storage space. Since worksites are filled with necessary, yet expensive tools and materials, theft is a major concern for many construction sites. There are many ways you can help prevent job site theft, but a key factor is using secure storage options at your job site.
Work efficiency is another major concern when there is not enough storage for keeping all the necessary tools and materials on site. Therefore, having the right worksite storage solutions will not only improve work efficiency but also help reduce theft. This list will help you overcome a lack of worksite storage on your next job.
Portable Worksite Storage Solutions
Portable storage containers are a great way to overcome a lack of worksite storage. Also known as container storage, portable storage containers can provide temporary or permanent storage solutions that best fit your needs. Container storage is available in a variety of size options to accommodate all types of worksites. The easy mobility and long-lasting durability make portable storage containers an ideal solution for construction sites. And the ability to secure a container keeps tools and materials safe from theft when workers leave for the day.
It's important to find a company to provide this easily accessible type of storage that can work within your needs, and has a reliable system of delivery that won't upset your workflow.
Advantages of Using Portable Storage Containers
- On-site Access
- High-Security Locking Systems
- Weather and Pest Proof
- Options for Adding Shelving or Pipe Racks
- Optional Wall Divider: This allows separation of storage within the same container.
Choosing a temporary storage solution for your business can be challenging. There are so many portable storage options out there, but SiteBox Storage containers were designed with your business in mind. While you may have heard good things about PODS and other companies in the past, PODS is a consumer-driven product that is intended more for helping individuals move than for businesses to use for storage.
SiteBox Storage is a B2B company that is better-equipped to meet the needs of both large and small businesses, with a large variety of options and extra features to give businesses of any size a great option for container storage.
Only Pay For the Space You Need
We have several units available in different sizes to choose from so that you can rent a container that best meets your needs. PODS only offers three. We know that many of our customers are looking to get the most out of the money they spend on storage, and we don't want you to pay for more space than you need. Each of our containers is approximately eight feet tall, and lengths range from 10-40 feet. You can also decide whether you would prefer a unit with one door or two, an option that PODS does not offer. Our storage containers that have doors on both ends make it easier to access everything in your storage unit.
One of the great equalizers in the business world is space. Whether you operate a small start-up or a multinational corporation, quite likely you could benefit from space to help you reach your goals and grow your business. Storage space, in particular, seems to be at a premium. After all, when part of your office or facility is designated for storage, it isn’t being used to manufacture, sell products, serve customers, or otherwise raise capital. A lack of storage can also be felt during renovations and expansions when part of the building may not be accessible.
Typically, restaurants are renovated in intervals to stay up-to-date and relevant to customers. (It could be every five years, ten years, it depends on the restaurant.) Remodels can be disruptive to business and may even shut you down for some time, adding to the stress and difficulty of the process.
Routines are the great two-edged swords of life. On one hand, falling into positive routines can lead to better health and financial success. On the other hand, routines can trap you into a pattern with no progress.
Renting equipment is a great option when appropriate, but this can easily fall into the routine where you end up paying as much as, or more than the equipment would've cost. If you have been repeatedly renting portable storage units for your business, it may be time to look into a purchase. This article explores some of the considerations to make while you're googling, "How much does it cost to buy a portable storage container?".
For many businesses, the biggest part of hunkering down for the winter means shifting inventory and operations. Clothing stores need to break out the coats and wool suits from on site storage containers. Department stores put away the patio furniture and start advertising comforters and blankets. Construction companies begin the dance of scheduling tasks based on the expected temperatures.
If you are like most people, you've noticed the increase in mobile storage businesses in recent years. Growth in any industry is a sign of successfully meeting a need. In this case, the need is for temporary or cyclical onsite storage. Why build a brand new warehouse if you only need extra space a few months each year? But each new customer begins with that familiar question, "How much does it cost to rent a portable storage container?"
