Successful inventory management is vital for every business to avoid waste and losses, and one option available to assist with those aims is to rent secure Perth storage units from a commercial storage facility. By getting a proper inventory management system in place with the help of secure storage units, you will avoid unnecessary purchase orders, expired excess stock, and wasted working hours trying to deal with all those issues.
In this blog post, we will take a more detailed look at why effective stock management is vital and, specifically, how to use a secure storage facility as an integral part of what will make implementing your stock management easier for you.
The first step is to select a storage facility with the space available and the additional services you need that will suit the needs of your business. Look at factors such as the size of the storage unit you require, the security on-site, flexibility such as opening times, and availability of climate-controlled units if they will be required. Also, ask other business owners if they can recommend any storage facilities they may have used.
Take An Accurate Inventory Count
Before transferring your existing inventory to your storage unit, accurately count what you currently have. This will not apply if you have no inventory or are a new business and will send your first inventory purchase to your storage unit. An accurate count of what you have provides the basis to check your inventory levels more easily and get an ongoing accurate inventory count once your stock is stored in your storage unit.
