These versatile containers have many advantages for onsite storage in the construction industry. Perhaps you’re looking for somewhere to store expensive equipment overnight, safe from potential thieves. Or maybe you need a place to keep personal protective equipment so that it remains in good working condition.
Either way, there are plenty of reasons why the 8 foot shipping container should be your first choice for onsite storage.
Space is often at a premium on-site, which is why an 8 foot shipping container is an excellent option for builders’ storage. No matter how small or oddly shaped your building site, it’s easy to find room for an 8 foot container.
You might be surprised by just how much construction equipment and tools you can fit inside them, too. Eight foot containers are taller than they are long, which makes them compact but roomy. Add a set of shelves, and you’ll be able to take advantage of almost 40 cubic feet (12.13 metres) of onsite storage space.
While we recommend 8 foot containers for onsite storage, they’re also well suited to use as security offices, two-person offices and more. And since they’re small enough to fit in most gardens, they can also function as storage space for one-person teams, such as self-employed mechanics, plumbers, electricians and decorators.
Construction equipment can be expensive to replace, while damaged tools can lead to health and safety issues. That’s why we recommend 8 foot containers for onsite storage.
Containers are far more secure than a garden shed or simple toolbox. They’re made of hardened steel and are lockable. Opportunists will struggle to break in and steal or tamper with your equipment.
Here at CBOX Containers, we also provide a lockbox for extra security and peace of mind. The lockbox covers the padlock to prevent anyone from having easy access to it. This makes it almost impossible to open the container with a crowbar or unlock the padlock without the key.
What’s more, all our containers are waterproof and windproof. They’ll protect your equipment from rain, dust and other environmental conditions. In turn, you’ll extend your equipment lifecycle and reduce your running costs.
Unlike large containers, compact ones are easy to transport between sites or even from one onsite area to another. And unlike sheds and other construction storage options, these containers are durable enough to survive the journey without being damaged.
While onsite, you can move your 8 foot storage container with a forklift. This makes them suitable for road construction, building construction or any other project with multiple construction zones.
Plus, when you’re between construction projects, 8 foot storage containers take up very little space. They’re smaller than a large van or a small excavator, meaning you can cut down on costs.
8 foot containers are a cheap storage option, whether you prefer to rent or own them. You can lease them from just $1.50 (plus GST) per day, or buy your own from $4,180 (plus GST).
Struggling to choose between buying or hiring a container? We recommend renting 8 foot containers for short-term projects or if you don’t have a place to store them between projects.
However, if you plan to use your 8 foot container for a long period of time, or you wish to modify or brand it, then purchasing often works out better. Not only can you reduce your ongoing costs, but your company then gains a valuable asset.
If you’re looking for onsite machinery or tool storage, there’s often no need to invest in a large container. The convenient and surprisingly spacious 8 foot container will store plenty of equipment, from tools and machinery to personal protective equipment.
It comes with all the pros of storage containers, including durability, security and waterproofing. And its compact size means it’s suitable for a wide range of onsite projects, and transporting and storing it is also relatively simple. Plus, it’s an affordable option for projects of any size.
