Tips for Using Portable Storage during Restoration and Remediation
by boxwell/April 29, 2021
The storage industry has been thriving for decades. Storage containers work for people in a variety of ways, and the list keeps growing! These versatile units keep belonging safe and secure. You can store equipment, move from one location to another and create a remote workspace. Did you know that portable storage containers are also convenient for restoration projects? Homeowners and businesses store and move their belongings in portable storage containers when they need more space while rebuilding after a natural disaster.
Natural disasters will occur, and when they do the first decision you need to make is whether to rebuild and restore your home or business. Of course, a lot depends upon how bad the damage is. Once that decision is made, new challenges include hiring a builder, getting permits and choosing which features of the home or business to restore, upgrade or let go. Rebuilding after a flood, fire, hurricane, earthquake, mudslide or tornado is not easy. When your home or business is destroyed, you may lose irreplaceable possessions and feel helpless and vulnerable. When this happens, you are faced with the tough process of rebuilding.
The bottom line is that when you’re restoring or remodeling your home or business, the new structure may be ever better than the old one. That’s good news! While nothing can prepare you for what lies ahead when rebuilding, here are some ideas to help along the way.
2. Use portable storage to store your items.
Portable storage solutions can help with the process of rebuilding. After a natural disaster (or even if you want to do some remodeling), a portable storage container is dropped off at a home or business. The containers are filled with items, and once the restoration is complete the items can be brought back into the home or business. Clients can rest assured that their items are safely stored on-site and have access to them when then need them. Clients also use portables to set up a closet for easy access to their everyday clothing. There is also the option to move the loaded portable storage container to an off-site location during the renovation if needed or desired.
3. Offer portable storage to contractors during renovation.
Many homeowners, no matter where they live, suffer from property damage and natural disasters each year. Whether it’s damage from a flood, fire, mold, or asbestos, when disaster hits, you need reassurance that your possessions will be safe. You’ll also want to look out for the contractors who may be helping with your renovation project. Contractors often don’t have a place to store all their equipment. It’s also easy to use a container as a break room area for the construction team. Having portable storage containers on-site is convenient for everyone!
