Renting Warehouse Space is Good for Business
If you run a commercial business, you know the importance of an efficient supply chain. Knowing about storage, distribution, and the logistics of keeping ahead in the warehouse stakes is all well and good, but if your business starts to outgrow its own current warehouse space, then what options are available to you?
When In-house storage is at capacity, the simplest solutions is to rent warehouse space from a dedicated facility, either permanently or for peak demand times or seasonal periods. But in which other ways is renting warehouse space good for your business?
Time and Space
Space is a big concern when looking for new warehousing, particularly if your business deals in large or bulky goods and stock. Most warehouses offer flexibility; the amount of storage space you need might change if you expand or downsize in the future. Not only that, but it can be the cheapest short term solution, leaving more capital to put back into the business.
Having a team of experts in the warehousing business to take care of your storage needs frees up time for you to concentrate on other matters.
If you are looking to expand the growth of your business, warehouse space can be taken up almost immediately, but building your own facility would take months in which time you could have missed out on several business opportunities.
Hiring warehouse space allows you to focus completely on your business rather than having to run a commercial property alongside it.
When you rent warehouse space your business will benefit from the supplier’s inventory management and tracking; your stock will always be easily located within their computerised systems.
No Maintenance Issues
When renting warehouse space there are no maintenance costs. Running your own warehouse would mean that any damage or repairs to the fabric of your building would be down to you. But by renting you eliminate that cost.
An added benefit of renting warehouse space within a facility is that the pallet racking, and other storage is all there ready for your stock.
Long or Short Term Solutions
Many companies that use rented warehouse space do so because they only need it short term. But how about the long termers? They have the luxury of not worrying about updating equipment and systems or hiring experienced and knowledgeable warehouse staff. The option to use it either in the short term or for the foreseeable future and the flexibility it offers is something that any business would find attractive.
