We’re at the height of summer. It’s the time of year where everyone is either looking for a place to cool down or planning activities that involve fun in the sun. One type of business that does both is a beachfront hotel. If you own one of these hotels, you depend on seasonal business and know that this is the most critical time of the year. It’s possible you might not even be open during the winter. You need to be ready and that means you need to be organized. Your business has to store all of the beach equipment you need that makes your hotel unique plus all of the items you need to make it run smoothly. A.B. Richards can help make this happen. We have portable storage containers that will give you easy access to what you need inside and outside of your hotel.
Portable Storage of Safety Equipment
As a hotel owner, your most important responsibility is the safety of your guests. This is particularly true when you’re operating a hotel on the beach. You’re going to need lifeguard equipment. According to the United States Lifesaving Association, the chances of drowning at a beach that’s protected by a certified lifeguard is only 1 in 18 million, so it’s vital that they be able to do their job. But it’s not enough to have a lifeguard on duty. You need to keep and store lifesaving equipment.
The USLA recommends keeping at least one rescue floatation device for each lifeguard on duty. You’ll also need masks, snorkels, binoculars, marker buoys and swim fins. It’s important to store medical equipment such as first aid kits at each lifeguard post, as well as spinal stabilization equipment, oxygen, cardiac defibrillators and equipment to protect against bloodborne pathogens. Radios and communication equipment are also a must, as are the basics, such as lifeguard uniforms, whistles and chairs. It is important that you take good care of all of this equipment and a portable storage container will help you do that.
Keeping Your Beachfront Hotel Operating Smoothly
In addition to keeping your beach area safe, you’ll also want to keep it looking great. This brings up a number of storage issues. You want to have beach chairs, umbrellas and tents on hand. You’ll also need storage space for plenty of towels for use on the beach and inside your hotel. Robes are also a must. There’s a good chance you’ll want to sell or rent items that people normally bring to the beach from boards and other flotation devices to beach bags, sun screen, bathing suits and other apparel.
If you allow food and drink on your beach, you may sell ice, water coolers, and beach carts to carry everything to your customers’ favorite spots. You might even have an outdoor bar which will require you to store stools, tables and chairs, as well as bartending equipment and a place to stock your bottles. If you serve food, you might want to store grills, cooking equipment and uniforms for the waiters or waitresses.
