How to Get the Most Out of Your Stock Storage in Chingford

If you have never used stock storage Chingford, it can be a little overwhelming. However, as your e-commerce business grows, you will quickly find that you are in need of a designated area to store your stock. There is only so much room in your spare bedroom or your garage.

In our ‘How-to’ guide, we will take you through everything you need to know about where to start and how to get the most out of your storage.

1: Create an inventory of all your stock

Before you begin looking into stock storage Chingford, make a detailed list of all your stock. This will allow you to easily see how much space you need. 

Many e-commerce businesses have busy periods where they need more stock, such as Christmas. Check how much extra you need during these periods and take this into account when choosing your unit. 

2: Choose the right size unit for your stock storage Chingford

After completing your inventory, you should now have some idea about the unit size you need. You will be able to enquire about renting stock storage Chingford, over the phone or by filling out an online form.

If you have any uncertainties or are stuck between two unit sizes, it is always a good idea to go into the store and take a look at the units. Our Chingford team is always happy to show people around and answer any questions they have.  

3: Decide where everything is going

Once you have chosen your unit, make a plan of where everything is going to go. And actually draw out a plan so you and all your staff know where every single item you sell should go within your unit. 

Place all of your top sellers at the front, in the most easily accessible place. This will make your life so much easier when you are packing up orders. 

4: Leave room for you and staff

When you are making your plan, make sure that you leave space for you and your team to work in. You will want to be able to get products and pack orders with ease but also with comfort. 

5: Add shelving

Making a decision on where everything is going should also make it easier to decide on the type of shelving you need and how much shelving you need. 

Choose high quality shelving so you know all your products will be safely stored within your unit. 

6: Label everything in your stock storage Chingford

Every single shelf, every single rail, every single box – label everything. This will make keeping your stock storage Chingford organised so much easier. 

If you stock a variety of different products, you may want to consider a colour system – but this is dependent on your business. 

7: Have an inventory list in your unit

Place your inventory list at the front of your unit and make sure to keep it updated. Having this information to hand will make your business run much more efficiently. 

8: Be clear about any changes 

When you have been in your unit for a couple of weeks you will be able to see what is working and what isn’t. Don’t be afraid to change things and try new ways of organising your unit. 

But make sure you tell all your team members about any changes you make. This will make everyone’s work day run smoothly.
