To office or not to office?

That's often the question when working on a jobsite, either in town or at a remote location. Of course, materials can be delivered as needed and stored in a fenced-in area. They'll still be exposed to the wind and rain and snow and hail. But for some materials, that's not much of an issue. (Unless it freezes, and they get stuck together).

If your stuff doesn't weather the storm well, or might "accidentally" walk off the job, you should definitely consider an onsite storage container. But …

Overcoming a Lack of Worksite Storage

Posted by SiteBox Storage Sales & Marketing on July 2, 2020 at 6:15 PM

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.

Container Storage or PODS? A Comparison

Posted by SiteBox Storage Sales & Marketing on May 13, 2020 at 4:30 AM

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.
