Protecting Rented or Leased Equipment with Phoenix Warehousing
When you rent heavy duty equipment for construction or fabrication projects you need to make sure everything is stored in a safe and secure place when not in use. Rain and other environmental factors can degrade equipment if not properly stored. For certain indoor or outdoor equipment and conditions, Phoenix warehousing can be an effective solution.
Protecting Industrial Equipment
Despite the term "heavy duty," industrial equipment still needs storage protection to ensure its longevity. Storing equipment in a place where vandals could potentially reach it and cause damage presents costly risks. Additionally, certain metal equipment can rust if not covered during storms, especially if it lacks protective coating.
However, metal isn't the only type of industrial material that requires protection. Plastic components will degrade even faster from exposure to turbulent weather. Wooden pallets can also be diminished in quality if left out in the rain. The accessories that go along with rigging equipment, such as hoists, must also be stored in a safe place.
Equipment Safety Means Human Safety
If you don't take proper care of industrial equipment, it can lead to equipment failure, which can affect your own safety. Since operating worn out industrial equipment presents serious risks, you need to make sure you take proactive steps to minimize or eliminate potential dangers.
Operating heavy duty equipment requires training, knowledge and skill. Part of your job in any project is to thoroughly inspect the equipment before turning the power on. Any type of issue that affects safety should be an immediate red flag to put the equipment out of commission until it is fixed.
Advantages of Phoenix Warehousing
Aside from protecting equipment from damage, Phoenix warehousing will allow you to organize your inventory better than if equipment is randomly scattered in various places on a job site. The last thing you want to deal with, besides dangerous conditions, is missing rental equipment. By keeping all the gear in one place, you will have one less problem to worry about.
Another key advantage to Phoenix warehousing is that you will have a more professional attitude and image among your crew of helpers, knowing you're not cutting any corners. The more you simulate the practices of a quality rigging team, the better chances your workforce will be more confident and productive.
