Moving your warehouse can be a daunting task, but if there’s growth in your business, you may need to relocate in order to get the storage solutions you need. Before you relocate your warehouse, here’s what you will need to consider:
Review Your Current Space
It is important your current space is reviewed thoroughly before you relocate. This will give you a better idea of what type or racking or other storage you may need in your new space. Organise your inventory in your old space before taking it over to the new one to ensure you have an accurate impression of how it will need to be stored.
Do You Need any New Systems?
In most cases, your new warehouse will be bigger than your old one and may have a different layout, so it’s important to think about how your old racking and storage options can move into your new warehouse, while still taking full advantage of the new space. You may also like to add new racking or a mezzanine floor into your new space to instantly boost your existing storage capacity.
Plan Your Budget Carefully
Relocations can quickly get out of hand in terms of budget if a cost analysis isn’t done, and a firm budget is put in place early. Consider the cost of the relocation itself, along with any racking or new storage that will be installed in your new space.
Figure out a Timeline
Warehouse relocations can inconvenience your business and cause loss in revenue, so it should be done as quickly and efficiently as possible. Be realistic with your timeline, but make sure there’s a process in place where each stage of the relocation is completed within the set time. Relocation services will be able to assist you with this.
Plan how Your Process Systems will Change
A new warehouse will bring changes to your process systems. When relocating your warehouse, you want a warehouse that will bring you great efficiency and convenience for your business. Now is a great time to change up your logistics to make things run smoother, and faster. If you are using a paper trail, you might consider going digital.
