Whether you’re storing your tools for the short-term or long-term, organisation in your self storage unit is key. There are steps you can take to ensure your tools remain clean, safe from damage and don’t end up with any nasty surprises like rust. Your storage unit is your blank canvas, so you can make it work for your trade business in whatever way is needed. Need shelving units to place your tools on? Easy! You can utilise the space however you would like. If you need to organise smaller tools and accessories, our box shop has a wide range of sizes to help you keep things spick and span!
Store Your Tools The Right Way
Your tools see a lot of action! Hand tools, power tools and all their accessories require a bit of TLC before going into storage, and we’ve put together a few easy tips to help you make sure your gear stays in top shape. If you plan on sharing your tools around, we definitely suggest sharing these tips with your mates so they continue the healthy cycle of leaving things the way they were found. So here are the best things you can do to prepare your tools for storage:
- Clean all your tools thoroughly. Remove any leftover dust, grease, oil or dirt with an approved cleaning solution. If you’re looking to access and use your tools regularly, then this step won’t be crucial, but it’s important to remember a little TLC goes a long way to increasing the longevity of your equipment.
- Organise your tools and equipment. This is a huge time-saver, especially when you’re on the run to the next job. Having cords, accessories and smaller tools organised into labelled boxes or bags means you’re not digging around for that drill attachment for half an hour.
- Power tools need a little bit of extra care if they’re heading into long-term storage. Use a fuel stabiliser to prevent fuel from going bad and keep the tools covered in a box to stop dust getting trapped and causing motor problems.
