Not all companies are willing to rent or purchase an independent warehouse once their small business begins to grow. Not only is signing an annual lease a big commitment but miscalculating space or demand can have a negative impact long-term. Unused space is a waste of money and fluctuating utility bills to cool warehouse space can also be hard to budget for. Since small businesses are often a bit rocky in the beginning, thinking small initially can end up rewarding big down the road.
Here are 6 reasons Why Mini-warehousing makes sense for small businesses over independent warehousing:
- No annual contract. Units are on a month to month basis allowing a small business owner to upsize or downsize a unit based on their business demands.
- Utility bill. There isn’t one! This is one less expense to worry about even when choosing a climate controlled unit because monthly prices are fixed regardless of outside temperatures.
- Security. Facilities are equipped with a security gate, guards and cameras so why worry about losing your inventory due to theft when you don’t have to? This also means it’s safe to access your unit 24/7.
