As your business grows and expands, you may find it increasingly difficult to find a home for your collection of products and materials. To avoid your warehouse becoming cluttered and untidy, Doity Engineering Ltd have outlined a number of ways you can maximise your warehouse space and keep your office neat and tidy.
1. Clean Up
One of the cheapest and most efficient ways of maximising warehouse space is to run an audit and rid yourself of any surplus products or materials. By being brutal and discarding any items that you don’t need or cannot sell, you will free up a healthy amount of room to organise and sort the products that you and your company does need.
Before you throw anything away, however, be sure to familiarise yourself with the latest recycling guidelines to make sure any important materials are not wasted.
2. Build Extra Storage
At Doity Engineering Ltd, we understand how building extra space can maximize warehouse space for your business and your products. Structures such as mezzanine flooring and other types of storage platforms provide another layer of space, quickly doubling your available storage room. Having materials piled on top of each other is untidy and will make finding a particular product extremely difficult. With the introduction of storage platforms and filing systems, you can significantly increase your available storage room while introducing a system that is neater and far more organised.
3. Build Taller
Having previously spoken about building extra storage space, building taller is also another cheap and easy way of maximising warehouse space. Vertical storage and high rising filing systems are very common in warehouses for various industries purely because they allow workers to sift through thousands of products quickly, while maintaining room for an influx of other products.
If you regularly bring in new products and materials and are struggling to find a home for them, this could be a sign of your business growing and expanding. Instead of thinking of ways to squeeze products into every available nook and cranny, it may be worth considering expanding to a new warehouse that can accommodate for the growing size of your business.
