Inventory Control Tips for Small Businesses

Indoor Storage

Climate Masters Indoor Storage provides indoor storage space as well as auto storage / vehicle storage / RV storage to numerous small businesses throughout the Lowcountry.  In addition to providing acceptance of deliveries, large loading docks and forklift services, we also take time to offer tips and tricks to help our small business customers organize and operate more efficiently. 

Let’s take a look at some inventory control tips to consider:

Organize Your Stock

The first step is to organize your stock within your storage space. Forgotten inventory can cost a business thousands of dollars, so consider placing newer stock in the back of the storage space and older stock up front.  This helps ensure that nothing gets forgotten or goes out of date.

Develop a Tracking System

It is a best practice to develop a tracking system for your inventory. This can either be in written form or performed electronically with a bar code system and scanner. A tracking system helps you know what you have on-hand, where it goes, and when it is replaced.

Scale As Needed

Don’t be afraid to scale your storage space to fit the needs of your business.  Working in a space that is too small can become especially cumbersome. Climate Masters Indoor Storage is happy to provide you with larger or smaller storage facilities to accommodate your needs. And, remember, our forklift services are available to help you should you need to move to a different size storage space.
