A one size fits all method for business storage usually means compromising in some way. Like many things in life, business storage is better if it is made to measure.
The right sort of storage for your enterprise could be determined by the number of square metres you have available in your stockroom. There again, you may have to limit your storage options depending on the height of your premises. Of course, the specifics of what you want your storage to do for you could also be a big factor in determining the system you go for.
How can you improve productivity with high-quality storage?
Lower Rental Costs
With bespoke storage equipment, you can fit more items into your facility without needing extra space. Even at busy times, avoiding temporary solutions means that your business operates with a lower cost base and, therefore, more efficiently.
By staying where you are rather than moving to larger premises, you won’t just save on rental costs but all of the expenditure and disruption that goes with relocating.
Improved Efficiency With Pallet Racking
With a pallet racking system, you don’t simply add capacity to your storage room but operate with greater efficiency. Pallet racks, for example, allow you to store items rapidly after they are received. Indeed, storing your stock on them means being able to pick things for orders more efficiently, too.
You will also be able to conduct stock checks with greater accuracy and fewer staff. Helpfully, you can find pallet racking systems – custom made to your business needs – from Warehouse Storage Solutions’ website.
Lower Utility Costs and Business Rates
If you use all of your available space in an efficient manner, then you don’t just put off the day when you need to move to new premises but save money on other business overheads.
High storage racks mean getting the best out of your business’ footprint. As such, you don’t need a larger warehouse which costs more to light and heat. Equally, smaller business premises tend to come with a lower business rates charge from the local council.
