In the world of construction, where valuable equipment and tools are the lifeblood of a business, ensuring their safety is paramount. For Tim Ingram, a lifetime resident of Concord, New Hampshire, and owner of Ingrams LLC., a landscape, hardscape and construction business, the adoption of used shipping containers as a storage solution just made sense.
"As essential as my network of subcontractors is to my business, the upkeep of my tools and equipment holds equal importance in ensuring the seamless operation of Ingrams. Like many professionals in our industry, we eventually outgrow our garage and need to seek additional storage solutions. The acquisition of 40ft high cube and 20ft containers rang the bell, with even the delivery process exceeding my expectations. Ingram expressed his satisfaction, adding, 'I couldn't be happier with the outcome.'"
Security is a paramount concern for these professionals, and shipping containers provide a robust fortress for their valuable assets. These steel structures are not only highly resistant to break-ins and vandalism but also offer protection against the unpredictable New England weather. This means that expensive tools and equipment are sheltered from the elements, reducing wear and tear and ensuring that they remain in optimal working condition.
One of the most compelling advantages of purchasing a 20ft or 40ft shipping containers is cost-effectiveness. Instead of investing in expensive, purpose-built storage facilities, contractors and builders can opt for repurposed shipping containers at a fraction of the cost. This affordability allows businesses to allocate more resources to other critical aspects of their operations, ultimately minimizing delays and ensuring that projects move forward as expected.
By embracing shipping containers for storage, Ingram has been able to a secure, cost-effective, and weather-resistant solution, safeguarding the tools and equipment that keep him in the game. Any builder who has had his equipment stolen off a jobsite can relate.
In an industry where equipment maintenance and security are vital, shipping containers are proving to be a growing solution for builders, contractors and landscape companies navigating heavy machinery and tools.
