Storage Snapshots: Photography Equipment

When I launched my photography business, I knew that I needed more space than I had at home. That's when I decided to rent a local storage unit to keep my studio gear organized. I spent a lot of time researching backdrops, staging, racks, and storage tips to keep all of my gear organized and protected when I wasn't shooting. With so many photographers looking for ways to expand their operations, I decided to share my storage tips so that I could possibly help others with their needs. I hope the information here makes it easier for you to organize your equipment and grow your studio.

Ownership Of Construction Containers Or Trailers ~ Sensible For Today's Contractors

Brian Hamilton

Are you a construction contractor? If so, you may have considered construction containers for your work projects. Perhaps you have rented some in the past for larger projects. Renting units leaves less flexibility for making amendments or upgrades. The following are a few perks to owning your own construction containers or trailers. 

Theft Prevention

Securing your building materials and equipment in a construction container or trailer will aid in ensuring that you are protected against thefts. Some construction sites leave their goods exposed on worksites. This can equate to significant losses, and the goods may never get recovered. There is also the possibility that stolen goods can impact productivity and deadlines.

Site Safety

Having equipment and building materials stored in containers can also aid in keeping the work areas less cluttered. Workers can access what they need without having to step over things that are not being used, which could be a trip hazard. This can also aid in keeping hazardous liquids off of the worksite until they are needed.

Weather Protection

Perhaps you have some building materials that may be sensitive to the elements. Rain and other precipitation can cause projects to come to a temporary halt. By having a trailer or container onsite, you can ensure that sensitive materials are secured from the elements and easily accessible when the weather clears up. This is a far better option than having to locate appropriate shelter for materials and equipment at the last minute. 

Conversion Options

It is possible to transform a construction trailer into a space that can be used by your crew or office personnel. For example, you can make upgrades that transform a trailer into an office or restroom. If you select a trailer that is big enough, you may be able to have both. This can save you on office and portable toilet rentals. It also ensures that everyone is located at a central location. 


Storing goods offsite in storage units is one option that some contractors utilize. This can impact productivity when goods need to be retrieved or transported back to the storage units. 

A company that sells construction containers or trailers is a good resource to use to determine more benefits of owning your own. They can help you determine the best size based on your current business needs as well as expected business growth. These companies may also offer financing options that make ownership a better option than renting. For more information, contact a company like A & N Trailer Leasing Co Inc.
