Coastal Post Contractor “Pro-tips”
PLAN AHEAD - Be ready for a day out on the road! Coming mentally prepared with food, drinks and a great playlist will make the drive more enjoyable and go by quicker.
REVIEW YOUR ROUTE - Know your route! Familiarizing yourself with the route ahead of time will help ensure there are no surprises on the road and will let you know which roads are best to take.
ORGANIZE MATERIALS - Load your truck efficiently! Loading tools, signs and posts for easy access will help you stay organized, keep track of all materials and belongings, and will make each task that much smoother.
TRUCK RELIABILITY - Make sure your truck is road ready! Having a reliable truck with a full tank of gas and the capacity to hold tools and all signage materials is key!
IDEAL TECHNIQUES - Don’t work harder, work smarter! Parking close to job locations will minimize your unloading and loading time. Continue to increase your efficiency by utilizing the right tools and keeping them handy and ready to go! Using a lead stick for post installations and an extraction tool for removals can cut your work time and labour in half!
PROGRESS UPDATES - Keep us in the loop! Tracking your progress along the route with completion pictures will let us know that everything is going smoothly and to plan. All updates can be easily communicated and posted using a project management app.
