Perhaps you have considered a warehouse for rent, but you have hesitated because of the expense. If that is the case, this article should hold some interest for you. We believe we have a wonderful alternative for you, one which will put you into a warehouse for rent at a price you can afford.
We are the Fort Worth Design District, serving the Greater Fort Worth Area. Call us at 817-439-3224 for information on commercial and industrial space for lease in the fastest growing industrial area in all of Tarrant County.
Now, though, let’s talk about sharing a warehouse for rent with two or more companies.
First of all, there are inexpensive warehouses available
Before we tell you about our alternative idea, we would be remiss if we did not mention the warehouse for rent you will find at Box Office Warehouse Suites, located in the Fort Worth Design District. There you can find a warehouse for rent for as low as $875 per month, an unheard of cost for industrial space for lease in the Fort Worth area.
However, as low as that price truly is, it may still be too high for many small businesses looking to break into the industrial property market, which brings us to our suggestion, one which is rapidly gaining traction among small businesses across the country: share a warehouse with two or more other companies. You could do the same thing for an office warehouse for rent and save money.
The alternative idea for a warehouse for rent
Let’s say we can show you a warehouse for rent which costs $1500 per month and is 1,000 square feet in size. That’s more space than you need, and you sure can’t afford the $1500 per month price tag. But split that warehouse with another company, and you suddenly have a warehouse which is 500 square feet in size, and you are only paying $750 per month, a very doable expense and well-within your budget. And, split three ways, you suddenly find yourself in an excellent financial situation in a warehouse space which is perfect for your small business.
It’s not that hard to do. Rope off sections. Partition off sections. Separate sections with tape on the floor. There are a number of ways to designate portions of a large warehouse and make it into tinier warehouses.
Save on overhead
Not only are you saving on the rental fee, but you are also saving on the utilities, the WiFi, and any other overhead you may be facing. This could literally turn into savings of a couple thousand dollars per month.
Works best with complimentary companies
This idea works with any type of company, but it is best if those companies are complimentary in nature i.e. small winery and a wine-making supplier. This sets up a situation where you are constantly sharing market information with the company owner who shares the warehouse, and you are constantly sharing ideas as well.
Is this idea for you? It may not be, but it is certainly worth consideration, especially if you are a small company owner with a fixed, small income.
