When you're on the jobsite there's never enough of the right equipment and you can never have it too close to hand right? On any jobsite, there is already too much time wasted looking for tools or walking too far to retrieve them every time a new task comes up. That's where proper jobsite storage equipment comes into the picture. The more variety of jobsite storage you have the more efficiently you'll be able to work. Let's consider the varieties of jobsite storage that can make your work easier and all around more efficient and the absolutely critical role they can play in improving productivity.
Proper van and truck storage is critical and there are so many varieties of storage chests and drawers that we could probably write a book or a catalog about them and of course there have been catalogs written about them. If you have a van used form driving between jobsites, van storage drawers go beyond handy. As you drive up to a site you can have tools at the ready that you can quickly grab out of the drawers and use for whatever purpose you need. Homemade shelving or loose tools bouncing around the floor of the van are dangerous in themselves or easily lost.
There are a variety of truck boxes and the more you use the better. Just about everyone has a crossover box for easy storage of a wide variety of tools and equipment such as tapes, tubes and all the wide variety of useful jobsite products you need. But you can augment this storage with the wide variety of other truck tool boxes that includes top slider and innside truck boxes. And you still do not have to stop there: one of the underused truck box areas is the wheel well but wheelwell truck tool boxes make this just as useful a storage area as any part of the box. The entire box of the truck can be filled with tools if that's what you need. Do not go over weight of course but as savvy as you need to make sure that you optimize your jobsite storage in your onsite trucks.
Aside from vehicle storage, you want to also optimize your other onsite storage with piano boxes and storage cabinets that easily organize and store all the tools you will be using. Lock these up in the trailer overnight and your tools will be ready to go to work in the morning. Distribute storage strategically around the jobsite during the day using tow motors or trucks so that you can save time retrieving tools for any job at hand.
For liquid storage of fuel or any other industrial liquid you can also look into liquid transfer tanks, a super-handy tool for storage of any jobsite liquids or, as they are supposed to be used, for transfer. Consider all the workers on your site and calculate in your mind how much time each of them spends every day looking for the right tool. Across all industries maximizing employee productivity should be a constant consideration and is a constant battle. Inadequate storage and tool availability can lead to unnecessary loss of time. Optimize your jobsite performance with the right storage capacity and the right distribution of storage around your work site.
