The good, the bad and the faulty: Finding high quality Warehouse Storage Space and Shelving

By CVGiCanada Subscribe to RSS | April 11th 2012 | Views:

Businesses have storage needs. Whether you're a small local business owner or a nationwide company, you know that you have to utilize every spare inch of storage space. Everything you carry and everything your business uses has to be organized in such a way that both your employees and your customers are safe. It is for this reason that considerations surrounding industrial material handling as well as storage systems are taken. Your systems should have your business goals in mind, as well as optimizing the way your daily operations are run, with quick and ready access to the things you need.

In each situation, businesses will have different needs. You are first going to want to find a vendor that recognizes that. Specialized knowledge of materials, handling and storage is key here. Speak with an expert in the field so that you are able to find the most economical but also the most productive solution for your business.

Every business around the world needs neat and organized storage space, and that amount is going to change from company to company. Your business may need a vast amount of storage space for those products you manufacturer or it may only need a small amount, to store information, documents and other necessities of serving your clients. Storage space needs to be set up properly, and the shelving has to be the best.

Poor quality shelving is always a bad choice. It does not matter how much money you imagine you are saving or how economical it may seem at the start: poor quality shelving will end up costing you money in the long term as you have to pay out the same amount, or possibly more to replace that shelving when it breaks down. That is to say nothing about your products that you may be using it to store.

Poor quality shelving also poses a potential on the job hazard to your employees, as well as damage to equipment. Sturdy warehouse storage shelving is most definitely the cornerstone of any business storage needs. There are two types of shelving you find, predominantly, in warehouse shelving:

There are a number of different types of warehouse shelving options. These include woods, which will usually be pine or oak, but can sometimes be other types that are not only durable but rot resistant. Solid wood shelving usually works best for smaller businesses because it isn't all that easy to install. It is however, one of the sturdiest options for shelving that you can find.

Steel shelving is the next type of shelving that most look into. Stainless steal is sturdy, and it is remarkably strong. It's also much thinner and lighter than wood, and the advantage there is that it is easier to work with- the disadvantage is that it can sometimes tip easier than wooden shelving.

If you are a smaller business you may have considered going to chain stores for your shelving needs. This is a bad idea. The shelves that they manufacture tend to be quite easy for you to put together, yes, and they do tend to cost less. However, they usually are not as sturdy as needed for long term storage and it's usually made of pressboard. Pressboard is a cheap material that breaks easily, so it might be useful for light storage, but typically not heavier uses.
