Top 5 Uses for a BigSteelBox on a Farm
Every farm has equipment, tools and gear that needs to be kept safe from theft, rodents and protected from the elements. BigSteelBox storage containers will do both. Here are the top 5 ways farms use BigSteelBoxes for storage:
1) Tool Storage
Expensive tools and equipment needs to be kept safe and dry, and relying on a shed with a pad lock that is easy to break does not offer peace of mind.
A BigSteelBox is extremely secure. They’re made of 8-gauge steel and come equipped with a Lock Box that protects your padlock from bolt cutters. Plus, all new containers have waist-height door handles, making them easy to open and close.
2) Storage for Large Equipment and Small Tractors
Large equipment and smaller tractors used for snow removal and yard maintenance will have a much longer life and run better if they are kept out of the elements. A BigSteelBox is the perfect “mobile garage” for keeping these types of vehicles dry and secure. But remember, for safety reasons, fuel tanks should always be empty when stored inside a shipping container.
3) "Toy" Storage – Quads, Sleds and Bikes
Quads, snowmobiles, motor bikes and other “toys” need secure storage too! Rather than taking up room in your garage or storing it in a larger shed that isn’t secure, using a BigSteelBox is a better way to store your seasonal toys. And again, always ensure fuel tanks are empty while inside the Box.
4) Feed Storage
One of the worst things that can happen to your stored feed is losing it to rodents and other animals. A BigSteelBox is the best way to protect your grain and feed from pests of all sizes, because they are wind and water tight, and completely rodent-proof!
Plus, not only will a BigSteelBox keep your feed protected from pests, but it will also keep it dry and off the damp ground. No need to worry when it rains or snows either, because a BigSteelBox is completely sealed.
5) Increase Efficiency and Productivity
Because we can place a BigSteelBox just about anywhere you need one, they are the perfect storage solution for farmers who have multiple yards or fields. There’s no need to cart all your equipment around with you in your truck, in a trailer, or drive back and forth when you need something. Strategically placing storage containers in different areas of your property will make it easy to store and access the things you need to get the job done faster.
