Yes, there are many warehouse for rent opportunities available today, 2021, in almost all major cities in the United States. That is a statement of fact which cannot be argued. That fact is good news simply because a plethora of options means a better chance of finding exactly what you want at a price you can afford.
However, there are issues which you need to be aware of, and it is those issues we will talk about in this article.
We are the Fort Worth Design District, a forty-acre enclave of creativity in North Fort Worth. Call us at 817-439-3224 for more information about the warehouse for rent opportunities we have available now and in 2022.
Are unique needs met?
Businesses vary, as do warehouses. Finding a perfect marriage between the two is what you want to accomplish. The nature of your business will require a certain floor plan. Will you need just a warehouse for rent or do you need an office warehouse for rent? Before you ever start looking at available properties to rent, make a list of the unique needs of your business.
Is there room to expand in the warehouse for rent?
You don’t want too much room to expand, because industrial space for lease costs per square foot, but you do need to make sure there is room to handle a year of growth. It can be quite damaging to a business to move too often, and you certainly don’t want to outgrow your new location in the first year.
What will it cost to run that warehouse for rent yearly?
Do your research on this. Make some phone calls. You need to know how much it will cost to heat the warehouse for a year. How much are the other utilities, including WIFi. Will you need to make certain improvements to the interior of the property? You need to know all of these things before you sign a lease.
Delivery trucks need easy access
This would seem to be a no-brainer, but we have seen warehouses which could not accommodate a semi-trailer delivery. Walk the exterior of the property and look at it through the eyes of a delivery company.
Know the zoning
Zoning can change from city block to city block. Just make sure you are fully aware of the zoning for a particular warehouse you are considering. Can you run a small retail shop from that location, in addition to the industrial work you do? What kind of signage is allowed in that area?
Who is responsible for building maintenance?
This is crucial! This information can make, or break, a business. Making repairs to a leaking room on a warehouse can be costly. Who is going to pay for that? Do not assume that the property owners are going to. That could be a very costly assumption.
