Searching for a warehouse for rent is a bit more difficult than simply doing a Google search. If it were nothing more than a computer search, the professionals at RDS Real Estate in Fort Worth would be out of business.
But we are in business and we encourage you to call us at (817) 439-3224 if you have questions after reading this informative article.
Beware of industrial property for rent terminology
If you insist on going it alone on this search, be aware of this: a warehouse for rent is not much different from a garage for rent, which is not that much different from a shop for rent. They all have four walls, they all have a ceiling, and almost all have bay doors . . . and yet they may be priced differently depending upon market conditions. Our suggestion: do a search for all three as you search for a warehouse for rent which meets your needs.
How much space do you need?
We ask this question because space is a crucial factor when looking for a warehouse for rent, or office space for lease, or retail space. Most warehouses are large. Most are at least 5,000 square feet because twenty years ago bigger was better with industrial properties for lease.
But today we have a market dominated by small business and home-based businesses, entities which do not need 5,000-10,000 square feet of space.
This leaves you with two options: either somehow find a warehouse of 1,000 square feet or less, or share a warehouse for rent with two or three other businesses, all sharing in the cost. This type of arrangement works well if all the business owners know each other and get along with each other. If not, it is an arrangement which begs for disagreements.
No matter which you choose, seek legal assistance
There may be a ton of jokes about lawyers, but in matters as important as industrial property contracts, you really need them. Have a lawyer look at your leasing contract to make sure there are no surprised in the fine print. Yes, it will cost you money up front, but it is money well-spent. We have known many a business owner who has tried to save money by not enlisting the professional aid of a lawyer, and many have regretted that decision.
