Part of operating a construction business is the ownership of large equipment. You use large machinery like skid steers, dump trucks, and other equipment to handle larger construction projects.
The problem with owning large equipment is having enough storage to keep your items safe against weather, vandalism, theft, and other damages. You may need more storage space than you think; here are signs you need to rent a construction yard to house your large equipment for your construction business.
You use up space that is needed for other things
If you are storing your machinery in areas of your business that could be used for other things, then you need to consider renting space so you can run a more efficient and organized operation. For example, if you're housing equipment in your parking lot, customers and employees have limited areas to park. If you're using a garage, then you have little to no place to store inventory so you can't keep your supplies fully stocked. A construction yard rental company will give you a quote for month-to-month or longer term renting.
You keep your machinery out in the open
Your construction business relies on the use of your heavy machinery to operate and keeping your equipment stored out in the open is a risk. Your equipment wears out more quickly when it's left out in the weather, falling susceptible to rust from rain, wire damage from rodents and insects, and exterior wear from the sun's constant rays.
Protect your expensive investment by renting a storage yard that has covered storage areas to keep your equipment safe. Seek a facility that has a fenced in yard that is under constant surveillance to keep your equipment safer against theft and other damage.
You want to expand your business
If you want to expand your construction business but can't buy more needed equipment because you have nowhere to store it and you don't have the funds to add onto your business to make room for your machinery, a great solution for you is to rent the storage space you need. Your contractor storage yard specialist will give you options for rental space so you can rent no more than you need and stay within your allotted budget.
Renting storage space for your construction equipment is a wise choice. When you are ready to rent, your storage specialist will assist you in finding a location that works best for your needs.
