Managing Inventory with Self Storage

  • A young man with a clipboard in hand takes stock of inventory.
Managing inventory may not seem all that exciting, but it’s the foundation for an organized, successful operation.

After all, you can’t sell what you don’t have. And you certainly can’t sell what you can’t find.

What’s more, if your inventory isn’t organized, you’re likely to be sitting on dust-collecting merchandise that should have been dealt with long ago.

It’s hard to be organized when you’re short on space. Things get put wherever they’ll fit. Before you know it, your employees are wasting time searching for items and your customer service might take a hit.

The Self Storage Solution

If that description sounds familiar, it’s pretty clear that you need more space. But do you need it all year long or just at certain times of the year? And are you ready to take on the increased overhead that comes with expanding your warehouse or moving to a bigger space?

Many businesses find that self storage is the better way to go because of the flexibility in storage unit sizes and the ability to expand when they need to.

The beauty of self storage is that you’re not locked into anything. You can rent space only during the pre-holiday rush and let the space go until you need it again. You aren’t responsible for maintenance costs. You can lease as much or as little space as you need.

With self storage, you can keep your business lean, flexible, and ready to switch gears. Your overhead will stay low and, even more importantly, you’ll have the space you need to keep your inventory organized and accessible.
