PODS® Local's On-Site Storage Helps Contractors Save Time and Money
The Californer/10209498

VENTURA, Calif. - Californer -- Major construction companies waste billions of dollars every year due to process inefficiencies. As the final product typically takes priority, other areas, like the storage of equipment and materials, often fall by the wayside. Large pieces of equipment are left unsecured, leaving them susceptible to theft. Project managers and team members are burdened with shuttling tools and materials back and forth to off-site facilities, further expending valuable time. PODS' simple solution of on-site storage containers can help increase efficiencies by keeping tools, materials, and equipment at the job site.

Here are four of the biggest reasons to use storage containers on your construction site:
  1. Save Time and Money – On-site storage containers can help eliminate the cost of transporting tools and materials to off-site facilities. Save time and money by having these items readily available when you and your crew arrive at work.
  1. Secure Equipment – Unsecured equipment is vulnerable. According to The National Equipment Register, more than $300 million worth of equipment is stolen every year from unsecured job sites—and that does not include the billions of dollars stolen in tool and building materials. On-site storage containers can help protect equipment, tools, and materials from theft, weather, and vandalism.
  1. Reduce the Risk of Damage – Moving equipment and materials increases the risk of damage during transit. Securing everything on-site mitigates that risk by reducing the time equipment is on the road.          
  1. Create "On-The-Job" Efficiency – On-site storage containers can help create a reliable and dedicated space where everything is stored, eliminating the hassle of manually tracking down each piece of equipment every day.        

PODS Local is a smart choice for your job site's on-site storage for many reasons:
  • PODS Delivers – Between overseeing a crew, subcontractors, and equipment rentals, you're already managing a ton of moving parts. PODS delivers storage containers directly to your job site at the beginning of your project and picks them up at the end, giving you one less thing to coordinate.  
  • PODS Has Month-to-Month Agreements – Some contractors build temporary structures, buy containers, or sign long-term storage leases, often leaving projects overcommitted. PODS offers month-to-month agreements so you can return your storage container as soon as your project wraps.  
  • PODS Offers a Clear and Transparent Pricing Model – Construction and major landscaping jobs already have enough financial challenges. With simple and transparent pricing, PODS is a line item you can plan for with no hidden fees, no deposits, and no penalties when you change dates.    
  • PODS Carries Multiple Container Sizes – Every project has different needs, which is why PODS rents several different container sizes that are ready to meet yours.
