Tips on increasing commercial storage spaces

If you are looking to store your products in a warehouse or storage facility, then it pays to take the time to understand how much space you will need. While this may sound like an obvious step, experts like Aw Structures say that there are many things that can go wrong when dealing with commercial space such as incorrect measurements and over-ordering. Here are some tips on increasing commercial storage spaces. 

Maximize your space: If you are using a commercial rack or pallets, then make use of every inch of it to store as much as possible. Of course, this means that you need to invest in the right tools for efficient storage. You can purchase an assortment of hooks and shelves at your local hardware store or online retailer like Amazon Prime for less than $50 each.

Gather the supplies you will need: Inventory all your items and then work out how many pallets, racks, and what size will be required. Make sure that you have enough space to store the materials. Make sure that you have enough storage space for all of your items so that it doesn’t get cramped or smelly in there.

Create thorough documentation: Quality control is more than just inspecting your order when it’s delivered. It means looking at the whole packaging process, from start to finish.

  • Create a checklist of what to check: Look at each step of your packaging and make sure that everything has been done correctly before moving on to other steps.
  • Make sure you have the right information about your order: Check that all items are present and accounted for in good condition, as well as properly packed (i.e., not crushed or damaged).

Know your limitations before placing an order: 

When selecting a warehouse storage partner it is important that they know what they are doing. Knowledge of your limitations will help you save money, time and avoid problems.

  • Know your limitations: identify the number of units you need in your commercial storage space so that the company can provide you with the correct size unit for your needs. This will ensure that everything is stored safely and efficiently without having to move items around between different spaces within the same building or across buildings altogether!
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions: if there’s something about an upcoming project or service which makes you nervous, don’t hesitate to ask as many questions as possible before signing contracts that may cost much more than what was discussed at first glance (and then some). The same goes for any kind of agreement regarding payments; always get everything written down in writing so there aren’t any misunderstandings later down the line when trying hard not to look like an idiot over email exchanges between parties involved.”


Commercial storage spaces can be increased through a variety of methods including adding more shelves, creating partitions, and using correct shelving designs. By following these tips, commercial storage spaces can be made more efficient and effective.
