For some, the first sign of spring is the sound of birds singing. That may be a beautiful sound, but for a select few, the sound that signifies the actual start of warm weather is the sound of heavy machinery starting up. If you run a construction company, you’ve reached the beginning of the busy season. It can be a time of great opportunity, but running a construction company requires organization and logistical knowledge. You want the job done as efficiently as possible, and that means being able to get your equipment to the work site and if possible keep it there. A.B. Richards can help make that happen.

Richards prides itself on helping customers solve their storage problems, and we do it throughout the northeast. We can provide you with 20ft storage containers which can fit on smaller lots.

They can help keep your inventory close, store items if you own a seasonal business or store construction equipment as we gear up for construction season.
Keeping Your Stored Equipment in Good Condition
It’s a good idea to make sure your equipment is in the best of shape when it goes into storage. The government action website Municbid suggests that you make sure that all equipment is cleaned regularly before being stored. One reason for this is that equipment is very often exposed to dust or dirt when it’s being used on a job site. This can contaminate whatever else you’re keeping inside the portable storage container.
Cleaning is also necessary to keep equipment durable and work properly. It’s advisable to keep the equipment lubricated during storage as well. This will help in starting up your equipment when taking it outside. Check the parts regularly to make certain everything is in working order. You should also protect any sensitive parts. For example, wires and electronic components can often become easily damaged, so they should be covered, and insulated from possible exposure to moisture.
Another thing to be concerned about when you’re storing machinery and materials on a construction site is security. If you can build fencing around the site and illuminate your portable storage container, this will add even another level of security.
