Working in construction as a builder will mean that you come into a wide range of scenarios every week and no two events are quite the same. As you well know you must be prepared for all kinds of events and not having the right equipment on you at all times can mean heavy delays in getting the job done and, in turn, can cost you work that you then miss out on due to these delays. While you may think you are already fully stocked there are ways to know for sure and ensure you have a system in place to keep you stocked in the future.
A Builders Hardware
No matter what area of construction you work in you will need to be ready at all times. First of all you should already have a good relationship with your local builder's hardware store and there are ways to get regular deliveries of goods set aside for you so that you do not have to go through the hassle of picking out everything each time you need it. Whether it is companies online that can create a package customised for you to inquiring at your local store whether you can have some set aside for you each week, try and be as efficient as possible.
On your work vehicle, you should always have everything you could possibly need in its own designated area. This is very important -- having a designated spot for everything not only reduces clutter but allows you to quickly check if you need to refill something up if you are in a hurry. You should always have a spare, the cost for most items of hardware you will use are not prohibitive and losing out on business due to a delay can be way more expensive for you.
Have A Constantly Updated List Of Your Stock
There are of course going to be items you use way more frequently than others and so you should have those closest to you. You should still have a list of your stock in both your vehicle and at your storage facility, whether that be at your work or at home. By knowing how much you have at all times and in your two most common places of work you will know if you can complete any job the moment it is offered to you, and if you can't because you are out of something you will know what you need to get straight away. It is also just good to keep yourself in the loop on what you have to be as efficient as possible at the work site.
Being ready for every job really means that you are prepared before you get the job for every possible job and you can only do this by having every single piece of hardware you could possibly need categorised and stored as efficiently as possible.
