If you’re planning a warehouse move, keep these tips in mind to make it go as smooth as possible.
Conducting a warehouse move can present a unique set of challenges that require extra care and organization far in advance. To help a warehouse move go as smoothly as possible, consider the following tips:
Assess Current Inventory
By its very nature, a warehouse has a lot of stuff that needs moving. But not all of it is necessary at the new location. By assessing the current inventory, you'll not only organize much of what needs transportation to the new place but also identify things that don't need to take part in the warehouse move. Perhaps it’s stale inventory that requires disposal or return to the manufacturer. Or maybe it’s inventory that belongs at a different location. Either way, a full assessment of the entire inventory is necessary for a successful and efficient move.
Carefully Plan Warehouse Deliveries
During the transition between the old and new warehouse, you’ll still need to carry on your business. To work efficiently, you’ll need to make proper arrangements with your shipping companies. For example, the last thing you want to do is receive a shipment of new inventory only to have to pack and send those items to the new warehouse. Along those lines, you don’t want to make arrangements to move certain inventory from the old warehouse to the new one, yet have that inventory go out in a shipment before the movers can get to it.
Use a Moving Company with Warehouse Experience
Not every moving company is capable of handling a warehouse move. To receive the best service possible, choose a moving company with proven experience and capability of completing a warehouse move.
