At Jiffy we want to be a partner in your supply chain. If you own a business that requires you to keep inventory, we think we can save you money and here’s how:
The rent you are paying for your business is higher than the rent you will pay for storage.
If you have a retail store, the more room you have in your store, the more of your products you can have out on display. When you have to share your retail space with your inventory you are overpaying for warehousing. The cost per square foot for retail space has always been more expensive than warehousing. You are actually paying many times more to store your goods on your main premises than if you were to store them at a storage facility.
The Money Saving and Money Making Option
What if you were to take a smaller retail space and move your warehousing to a self storage facility? That savings goes right to your bottom line; it’s like found money! Car dealerships have adopted this model because they know it is a guaranteed money saving and money making option. A car dealer will keep only the cars inside their premises that they require to show customers; often not even their full line-up in order to keep costs down. In the parking lot they will keep the inventory they think they can move in a matter of weeks and the overflow is stored in large lots offsite and sometimes out of the city where the rent per spot is cheapest. This way, they keep only their immediate need inventory close in the higher rent spots and the rest of their inventory further away in the cheaper to rent spots. Car dealers know that inventory management is key to having a successful business. Now it’s your turn.
Should you keep your inventory close to home?
Not necessarily. A common misconception is to look for the storage facility that is nearest your retail store. However, the facility that is ON THE WAY to your store is the facility that will save you the most time. This way you can restock your inventory on your way to and from your business which will save you the most time and money. This is where Jiffy Self Storage shines. We chose our location carefully. Conveniently located at the corner of Highways 400 and 401, Jiffy is always on your way! Whether you’re going north, south east or west across the city, you invariably pass by Jiffy.
