Storage sheds come in all shapes, sizes, and material types. A shed can function as a standard storage shed, but there are also several other things you can do with one. Here are just a few uses for storage sheds that might prove useful to your construction business in the future.
Tool Inventory and Tracking
Tools sometimes have a way of disappearing off the worksite lot and never returning. This may just be due to oversight, but if your tools are being pinched by your crew or by thieves at night, you may need a storage shed for tool inventory and tracking. This means that every tool you own is locked up tight in the storage shed, and anytime your crew members need something, the shed gets unlocked, the tool is signed out, and the shed is locked up again. At the end of the week, you can check the sign-out sheet and the walls for the missing tools and know exactly who to talk to to get your tools back.
Oversized Sheds for Your Trucks
Keeping your trucks in good shape is vital to your business too. That means keeping them out of the elements when not in use. If you do not have access to a commercial garage offsite, then an oversized storage shed might be the next best thing. If you cannot find an oversized shed kit that builds a shed that is tall enough and wide enough, you might want to just design and build your own.
Extra Long Sheds for Lumber and Steel I-Beams
In this business, your job is only as good as your materials. Exposed lumber warps and steel I-beams may tarnish. That is not a good way to start or finish a job, which is why you may want to invest in an extra-long storage shed sooner rather than later. All of your lumber and steel beams can be stored in these sheds and protected from rain, sleet, snow, and ice. Additionally, the sheds are lockable, a bonus benefit if your worksites have been the target of numerous "scrap metal" and lumber burglaries. If you buy the plastic shed kits, these snap and screw together quickly, and your crew will be able to take them down just as easily as they will be able to put them up. This particular feature of these extra-long sheds means you can use them again and again and transfer them to various job sites.
