Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Warehouse or Storage Unit for your Business

When it comes to choosing a warehouse facility or self-storage unit for your business, it's important to understand what you'll be getting for your money. While both will keep your goods safe, warehouses operate on a grander scale. Asking these important questions will also help you discern whether the benefits of a warehouse are worth the extra cost.

  • What will you be storing?
    The type of merchandise you're looking to house will have a lot to do with your final decision. If you are looking to store a high inventory of product, self-storage may not be practical. From there, you also need to consider the type of services you might want to contract from a warehouse. Will you simply be using the space, or do you need your units distributed? A warehouse will have these options available to you. If you're looking for storage for smaller merchandise or business files, a public self-storage unit can keep your items safe at a much lower cost. Furthermore, consider whether your items are temperature sensitive. Food isn't the only thing that needs climate control. If your product might be damaged in extreme heat or cold, find a facility that offers climate-control with AC or heating units.

  • What will be the carrying cost?
    It's also essential that you work your storage contract fee into your business plan. Each item being stored needs a price or value adjustment based on the cost of storing the merchandise, box, or equipment. This will help determine whether you can afford the facility.

  • What kind of access will you need?
    While warehouses will offer tremendous assistance in housing and moving your product, your personal access may be more limited. If the merchandise needs to remain more readily available to you, consider how a self-storage facility might satisfy the needs of your business.

    Working as a professional in the merchandise storage and warehousing industry can be both challenging and exciting. Since there is a great need for high capacity storage containers, refrigerated mobile units, and waterproof facility locations all over America, there is plenty of room for employment in this field. Therefore you may be able to work in most parts of the United States when you get involved with commercial merchandise warehouses.

    There is some training involved with a job like this. After all, in this line of work you may have to move large containers, take inventory of merchandise, stock racks so that all goods fit nicely, and deal with vendors that use warehouse facilities regularly. There is typically no need for a formal college degree when you are employed in this field. However, it is important to understand container capacity levels, commercial storage facility locations, warehouse unit sizes, and mobile distribution vehicles. You may end up working with cold, dry containers, as well as self-sufficient temperature controlled units at times. Generally, these long and short term secure warehouses have fixed rates, and transportation vehicles used to deliver merchandise to vendors. These are both facets of merchandise warehousing you will need to understand in this line of work in order to do a good job.

    It is common to work with a number of vendors and distribution professionals in this commercial industry. In fact, you will probably work with a wide variety of retailers and distributors from all over the country on a regular basis.
