Self Storage: Construction Companies' Offseason Space Solution

When the busy season winds down, you need to park equipment and supplies. Your construction business doesn't fit in the garage anymore, and you're still working on several offseason jobs. Solve these space and access problems with affordable self storage in Lyons, IL and throughout the Chicago metropolitan area.

Slow Down and Take Stock 

Now is the time to put downtime to good use. As the schedule eases up, scout different types of storage units in your area. Small units work for tool and supply storage, while drive-up units are great for unloading heavy equipment.

You can lease secure facility parking for company trucks, vans, and forklifts. Everything stays centrally located, and you don't have to worry about theft or vandalism back at the job site. When you're between projects, tools and equipment are always in one place for inventory, inspection, and repair.

Organize and Stock Up 

A climate-controlled storage unit keeps tools and equipment insulated from freezing Chicago weather. It also keeps you comfortable as you organize everything for quick access. Labeled plastic bins make it easier to retrieve multiple toolsets, while wood pallets and shelves keep supplies within easy reach. 

Take advantage of offseason pricing on some of those supplies. Save money now with bulk buying strategies that put you ahead of the next quarter's budget. You have plenty of room in an affordable storage unit that leases for a fraction of the cost of warehouse space. 

Relax and Enjoy Self Storage Benefits 

Saving money always counts, but self storage also adds value to your construction business and gives you a competitive edge. 

  • Tools and equipment stay in top condition and ready to go.
  • High-tech, on-site security systems give you peace of mind.
  • You don't have to schedule around equipment pick-up from multiple locations, as it’s all in one place.

Make the Most of the Last Day of Summer in Lyons

Summer isn't over until it's over here in Chicagoland, and that doesn't happen until September 22. That's the day that the Fall Equinox brings this long, lazy season to an end. Still, you want one last shot at fun in the sun before packing away your favorite summertime toys in self storage. Lyons, IL stands ready to entertain with historic sites, water adventures and acres of beautiful parkland.

Explore the Portage

We take portage for granted today. Back in the 1600s, French explorers Marquette and Joliet considered it essential as they explored this part of Illinois. Without a crossing between the Chicago and Des Plaines Rivers, the adventurers might have taken a different turn. Fortunately, they found their way, and you can follow their trail. Join your friends, and break those bikes out of your storage units for a cycling tour through the Chicago Portage National Historic Site.

Get Wet, Cool Off

After you've taken in plenty of portage scenery, head up Ogden Avenue for a final summer splash. The city's Cermak Family Aquatic Center caters to kids with plenty of wet fun for grownups, too. Get soaked at the splash pad, sail down the water slide, and make waves on the lazy river. Stay cool in the shade of surrounding Cermak Woods before heading over to the quarry. That's where you'll find out if the fish are biting on the last day of summer.

Fire Up a Sunset Grill

Finish off the Fall Equinox over on Lawndale Avenue where two beautiful parks offer fantastic sunset views. Give your backhand a final spin with a game of tennis at Smith Park. Catch up with fellow skaters, and show them your best Casper slide. When you're finally worn out, it's time to cross the street and salute summer with a farewell cookout. Fire up a grill in Veteran's Park, feed friends and family, and then kick back and relax. You've celebrated the last day of summer in true Lyons style.

It's not hard to say goodbye to summer when you know that you're waving farewell to sizzling temperatures. It's easy to enjoy the season's last day with faith that you'll get to do it all over again next year. Between now and then, we're always happy to take care of your summer gear with storage units all across Cook County. Safeguard Self Storage stands ready to keep your stuff secure all year-round.
