23 Oct Solving Retail Storage Problems: Storage Units in Kamloops
If you own a small retail business and are looking for a way to solve your storage problems for inventory and other business items, renting storage units in Kamloops is an easy and convenient solution. Retailers often quickly fill up the storage areas within their shop. At this point, you have a dilemma. You cram already filled closets or offices with piles of inventory. You may resort to taking items home to store in your basement or other rooms in your home or garage, or be forced to put items on sale, cutting into your profits, to reduce your inventory and free up space.

Quick Retail Storage Tips
- Create a storage inventory spreadsheet
For retailers, it’s important that you know what inventory you have moved into storage. A simple spreadsheet can help you track inventory in your Kamloops storage unit. Create column headings for stock properties such as: Item Name, SKU, Colour, Size, Box #, Rack#, and Location in Storage). “Box #” and “Rack #” number will help you identify items you’ve packed into boxes or hung on storage racks in your storage unit. The “Location in Storage” column can be used to identify where an item is placed. Entering a simple description like “back, right corner”, “middle of left side”, or “front left” can save you a lot of time when you are retrieving items from your storage unit.
- Identify items as you pack and move
Label box contents so you know what’s inside. If you are hanging clothing on racks, label the rack with a number.
- Effective storage unit packing
Pack retail stock that you’ll need frequently at the front of your storage unit. Keep seldom used items toward the back.
- Use new boxes and plenty of packing paper or bubble wrap
New moving boxes will last longer than grocery store boxes and cartons. Use plenty of packing paper and bubble wrap around delicate or breakable items.
