Business Storage: Expanding Is Better Than Multiplying

Tags: , , , ,

Part of your challenge as a business owner is to make sure you are independent in as many ways as you possibly can. You don’t want to be too exposed to another business. This means you cannot always rely on others to give you what you need and instead choose to be self-reliant. Being able to supply your distributors, your partners and customers with your products is one such way in which you should determine to stay self-sufficient. Storage warehouses thus come into your framework and they bring along with them benefits but also some logistical issues of their own. What happens when you are selling more than your storage space can handle? You need to stock more and more inventory and eventually your warehouse is going to be too small for you to cope with demand. The question will spring up, should you expand or multiply? Here is the case that suggests you should expand instead of the latter.

Control of space and money

Expanding your warehouse can be given the greenlight if you have enough room to do so. Bear in mind many storage warehouses for businesses are in specific parts of the country. Usually you’ll find big companies use a central location in a region so that distance between all relevant major cities is equal. A distinct zone is thus created for warehouses, often called a business park. If you have the space to build another warehouse or a contingent on your existing warehouse, you should expand the current warehouse. The best two reasons for this are because you can control the amount of space you actually want or need. Contracting a warehouse construction company means you’re only given certain wholesale options such as 300m x 400m. What if you want 150m x 50m instead? You can control the amount of money being spent on the warehouse also, by choosing your own materials, hiring your own team to build it and also only spending how much you need to for each additional square meter.

Helping in the construction

Expanding your current warehouse means you can keep the warehouse fully operational while extra work is being done outside. However, you need to take direct control of the situation and help in the construction. Don’t leave a hired team on their own all the time, as workers and the warehouse itself need to be monitored as construction is going on for safety reasons. You can use your own equipment such as Franna Crane Hire that supplies all kinds of heavy duty vehicles to move things around. If you have a pallet of raw concrete to move then you can do so yourself using this kind of equipment. If you need to move other things like storage racks or even pump trucks then you can use something like this to get the ball rolling. Again, an expansion gives you more control over how and what you build.

Business storage is constantly evolving. However this happens in the background for many businesses which is why expenses can get out of control when you don’t take full control yourself.
