17 Feb New or Used Modular Warehouse Office for Your Business – What to Consider
“If you have been scrawling your work across boxes, pallets, or whatever surface you have found in your warehouse while listening to the constant drone of activity then maybe it is time to upgrade your situation to something else.”
Getting a new or used modular warehouse office is a big step to growing much larger. If you need an office in your warehouse then you, probably, are experiencing one of a few scenarios. In fact, two of which are pretty common. Your office is located somewhere else other than near your warehouse. The other is doing office work in the warehouse. A situation that is not conducive to getting things done. It is likely you have been scrawling your work across boxes or whatever surface you have found in your warehouse. All while listening to the constant drone of activity in the warehouse. It is time to upgrade your situation to something else.
It does beg the question of should you get a new or used modular warehouse office? A new one would be great but it might not always be financially feasible. If you do get a used one then you need to be cognizant of a few issues. You do not want to get caught in a situation that makes your use of that modular warehouse much more difficult.
“The last thing you want to do is to take the owner’s word for its efficacy. They may have ulterior motives for getting rid of it. They may fail to tell you upfront about the hidden damage we just mentioned.”
Are there any pieces missing from the modular warehouse? Buying a modular office from a person without an intermediary or a third party is not smart. Ideally, this third party would be a company that deals in the material handling industry. You would want this just for their experience and knowledge. You have to wonder why they are selling the office. Subsequently, dealing with a person with no relationship to a company in the material handling industry is difficult. You are going to have to worry about what is wrong with the office. There might not be anything wrong with the office but there could be something. Maybe it has unnoticeable structural damage. It might even be noticeable but in a state where it is not already in use and upright when you go to see the office in question. The last thing you want to do is to take the owner’s word for its efficacy since they may have ulterior motives for getting rid of it. They may fail to tell you upfront about the hidden damage we just mentioned.
If you have a good warehouse modular office in your possession then the next thing to ask is if you have the equipment you need to move it around when you need to move it. You will inevitably grow and you may find that you need to move your office somewhere else in order to maximize the efficiency and workflow of your business. If you do need to do that then you may want to consider a few rolling shelving units and/or a pallet jack. You may already have a forklift in your warehouse but the usefulness of having a pallet jack in your possession is indispensable in moments like those. You can load your equipment, safely, onto a pallet and move it to the next area fairly quickly without starting your forklift within reason.
