R&R Painting and Flooring, based in Dayton, Ohio, has served the southwestern Ohio area for more than 30 years. With about 20 employees, the business specializes in commercial and industrial painting, cleaning, and drywall, as well as installing flooring.
The Challenge: Documents to Store
Before R&R could start cleaning and preparing the walls to paint, they had to remove all the racks in the warehouse and all the archived documents that were stored on the racks. The team needed a place to store all the goods from inside the warehouse while work was underway, and then return everything after the paint dried. R&R's customer also needed to access certain documents during the process.
The PODS Solution: Off-Site Storage
PODS kept a steady flow of containers arriving to be filled as R&R workers began unloading and dismantling the warehouse racks. Because the project schedule changed based on workforce availability, PODS' ability to provide flexible delivery was ideal, Rech said. The contents of the warehouse never piled up waiting for another container to arrive, so workers didn't have to delay their progress.
In addition to providing containers on site when needed, PODS stored the containers off site in a PODS Storage Center while the warehouse work was underway, as there was no room at the warehouse site to store containers. The project took about four months and when the work was completed, PODS delivered the containers to the warehouse for R&R workers to restock the warehouse.
“We needed to get everything out quickly, and PODS kept the containers flowing as we unloaded the warehouse so we didn't get backed up. Our people didn't have to stop working."

The Results: An Organized Job
When the customer requested materials out of the containers during the renovation, R&R staff could easily pinpoint which containers were needed. “PODS was very responsive and quickly brought the ones we needed when we needed them," Rech said. “The entire process flowed smoothly."
