Moving strikes fear into the hearts of many, but none more so than the warehouse or factory owner. The relocation of potentially thousands of stock items is a daunting task that causes countless downtime for your business. Live in fear no longer: a warehouse mezzanine can save the day.
Seriously. Moving your warehouse’s location is a huge hassle that can easily be avoided. We have compiled the top reasons why someone thinks they have to move, and explained why a mezzanine is better!
Running out of workspace
We all agree that being more efficient is extremely important, but a lack of adequate workspace can make it nigh-on impossible to do. Warehouse mezzanines make the most out of your existing space. They will increase your warehouse capacity by unlocking the wasted space above your head – potentially doubling your floor space!
We’ve done the maths. Installing a mezzanine is up to 80% cheaper than moving premises! Not only this, but compared to moving premises a mezzanine provides the highest return possible on your investment.
Lack of warehouse storage
Is a lack of storage space impacting on your warehouse? Storage issues are often the biggest limiting factor to growth for our clients. However the answer is not to move! By installing a mezzanine in your existing location you can create a whole new floor to:
- Hold new stock
- Store old stock
- Rotate stock
Having more storage in your warehouse leads to increased efficiency and production, allowing you to have a broader range of products on hand.
Not enough space for existing or new employees
You need more staff, or your existing staff are crammed into impractical spaces. This can be a major warehouse issue, and a big reason to consider moving.
Many people don't realise that a mezzanine can be installed as an office. By maximising the available floor space, mezzanine offices are a cost-effective way to make the most of your current warehouse.
Generally, there are three different types of mezzanine offices:
- Mezzanine office above storage area
- Office under raised storage area
- Two-storey mezzanine office
So there you have it. Don’t move, mezzanine! Still not convinced? Well find out ‘How to get more space with a mezzanine’.
