3 Signs It’s Time for Your Business to Consider Commercial Storage
March 25, 2023 by CRS Corporate Relocation SystemsCommercial Storage
As many small business owners know, the best and easiest place to start your business is your home. Many large commercial businesses saw their first few years gathering and stacking merchandise in their garage or on the dining room table. As you begin to grow and require more room, there may come a time when you may need to start considering commercial storage as an option.
CRS Moving & Storage has been the go-to spot for commercial storage in the Tri-State area for over 20 years now. With climate-controlled and centrally located facilities, we are proud to serve our community with a place to safely keep their important belongings, including merchandise and retail goods.
3 Signs It’s Finally Time to Consider Commercial Storage
How do you know it’s finally time to consider commercial storage options? Three signs to look out for include the following:
No Room For Additional Inventory
One of the clearest indicators it’s time to expand your storage horizons is when you physically have no more room for additional inventory. A cluttered workspace not only makes it hard to take preemptive ordering measures, but also makes it difficult to fulfill orders and get any work done at all. It’s always best to stay on top of inventory management, which includes replacing any used or expired items. When you can no longer do this without worrying about pre-existing items toppling over onto each other and breaking, it’s time to find an adequately sized storage unit.
We will work alongside you to find a cost-effective and appropriately-sized storage unit so you can stack everything clearly, safely, and securely. Plus, our inventory management system allows you to easily identify when anything needs to be reordered or replaced.
Worried About Security
Though your garage makes for a wonderful storage space when you are first beginning your small business, it is not necessarily the safest place to keep your valuable and expensive goods. When you transition over to a commercial unit, you are giving yourself access to the following:
- Onsite security
- In-house inventory management available to you online
- 24/7 access to your unit
A new unit means that you won’t have to worry about replacing stolen or broken merchandise.
Your Merchandise Is Spoiling
Without a temperature-controlled unit, it’s likely your goods will have a shorter shelf life. Not only is this more expensive to keep up with, but you also run the risk of a bad customer experience. Not being able to fulfill an order on time because of spoiled or expired products can slow down overall production and cost your business time and money.
Commercial storage units are constantly climate controlled and protected from the harsh outside elements. Shelving units are also commonly provided to keep everything off the floor and properly ventilated.
