How tough would a job or task be to execute if you didn’t have the right tool to do it efficiently and effectively? You wouldn’t necessarily bake a cake on the stovetop of your oven, would you? Or store your milk in the cupboard to reach for when you have your morning cuppa? Well, the same goes for expecting your employees to do their job, and to do it well, if you don’t properly equip their workstations or the operating floor.
Too often people get excited watching videos online and think they can do the job better than those handymen and women in the videos and without the appropriate tools – now there is a show worth watching right? But on a serious note, if you run a company, or better yet built a firm from the ground up and turned your dreams into a reality, equipping your team of staff will work for both you and your company, and them as their workflow and efficiency is maximized.
If you have ever been inside a hardware store or tool shop you will know all too well how overwhelming it can be with endless choices of brands, sizes, and power of every machine imaginable. So what do you choose, where do you start, and do you need one of each (we can only wish)?
Well, ideally you want an idea of what your employees or company needs to operate daily. Work your way up from there, building on the various departments according to tasks or staffing needs, and before you know it you will have a well-established repertoire of power tools and handyman essentials that many businesses could only dream of.
Shopping for quality products, while we wish we didn’t need to mention it, should be an investment you are willing to make. Quality over quantity will always prevail and is a must for your team members to do their jobs well, but more importantly, safely. Always opt for trusted companies and brands, we are big fans of Max Warehouse Pro when purchasing your power tools, accessories, or anything in between so you have peace of mind your employees are working safely and with the right tool for the job.
Getting started on the right path from the get-go
There are a lot of categories and departments to ‘furnish’ when it comes to tools, so we have curated a list of the top essentials that you are more than likely to need for your business and to better understand what is needed to execute tasks. Let’s dive in and see what we have discovered to not only improve your company’s work efficiency but to maximize production as a whole.
These range everything from decking wood and drywall to concrete, gates and fencing, and insulation accessories. Probably the most important department you want to begin with because, without the foundational toolset, you can’t progress in a build.
Functioning lighting, electrical tools, and extension cords or plugs will help you begin setting up shop with optimal efficiency. Everything you could want for fire safety, security, and circuit breakers is in this section and which is why it comes in at a close second.
Power tools for men are like shoes and handbags for women, they love them all, they ‘need’ them all, and while we won’t necessarily use them as often as we would like to because of the price tag, their value never fades.
Power tools might be one of the more costly purchases you will make but it is truly an investment worth making. The last thing you want is to choose a ‘bargain deal’ of ten cheap drills sanders only to have your staff complain it has broken or given up the ghost within three months. Impact drivers, nail guns, rotary tools, or powered screwdrivers (have we lost you in the jargon yet) are worth every penny you are willing to spend on them.
Flowing water is like music to a plumber’s ears, it means all connections are set up correctly, tight with leak-preventative implementations, and your business can begin operations on time. Everything from water heaters, pumps, piping, and even the humble, much-needed valves is what brings it all together and your business will be up and running in no time.
At the end of the day
As a business owner or entrepreneur, you want your company to succeed, but you need to be willing to put in the work, and in this case, the right tools for the job.
When your foundation is done right from day one, the rest seemingly falls into place and your business and brand will be known for its quality workmanship and your employee team will give you their loyalty knowing they are valued and worth the investment of quality materials and tools.
Who knew a power tool would be so spiritually, mentally, and emotionally impactful?
