The traditional warehouse for rent.

The traditional warehouse design is something you are all aware of.  Often battleship gray, exterior cement, rectangular in shape, with all the personality of vanilla yogurt.  They have been a part of the American landscape since the early 1900s. They are functional, they do serve a purpose, and they are dull and oftentimes much too large for a small business to rent.  They were, after all, constructed with larger companies in mind, and do not match the needs of today’s world where smaller businesses are rapidly taking a larger share of the market.

Do they serve a purpose? Of course they do, and we suspect they will still serve a purpose fifty years from today.  We are simply saying there are other options to consider if battleship gray is not your color.

Let’s talk non-traditional.

When the traditional box warehouse design does not work for you, it might be time to think outside the box. Here are a few suggestions for those willing to embrace the non-traditional.

Shipping containers . . . in fact, we have an industrial park, in North Fort Worth, called Box Office Warehouse Suites, where each rental property is a professionally designed shipping container.  Flexible in design, inexpensive, and oozing with options.

Shared warehouse space . . . take a traditional warehouse and divide it into multiple smaller warehouses for multiple companies.  Share the space, share the cost.

Self-storage units . . . this may seem a bit unorthodox, but it works for many small companies with unique operating procedures.  There are self-storage units as large as 400-square-feet in size, really a perfect size for a small company, and a small rental price to match the size.

Look to the private sector . . . if the zoning allows, there might be private property owners who would like to make some extra cash by renting their outbuildings to a company for storage.

Image and budget.

The bottom line is this: We are navigating through uncertain times in the business world these days, and predicting the economic future is a bit like rolling dice.  For many companies, the traditional approach simply will not work, necessitating a willingness to “think outside the box.”  The suggestions above are working in some areas of the country for some companies, and that makes them viable alternatives worth considering.
