At the Unistor Group, we focus on the design, customisation, and installation of warehouse shelving in Sydney. Efficiency in warehouse storage is extremely important to us. In Sydney, warehouse floor space is worth about $380 a year for each square metre (if you are renting) and about $1,500 for each square metre if you are buying. Getting just a few extra square metres of warehouse space is not cheap. With smart shelving solutions and other strategies—such as the use of intermediate mezzanine floors—you can make better use of both the horizontal and vertical space of your warehouse.

Still, designing an optimal shelving and storage solution for a warehouse is something that should happen on a case-by-case basis. What works for one enterprise might not work for another. With that thought in mind, here are a few questions you should ask yourself before you invest in your new industrial or commercial shelving solution in Sydney.

What to Ask Before Designing Your Warehouse Racking Solution

  • What are your storage needs? Are you developing a warehouse shelving system for a new Sydney warehouse, or are you trying to expand the storage capacity at an existing warehouse? Are you storing small products, large pallets, or some mix of both? Answering these questions will help you determine how much shelving you need and what kind of shelving installations are necessary to accommodate what you need to store.
  • What kind of growth do you expect to see in the next five years? Thinking about the future is important when sketching out your racking solution. You want a system that is going to work for your needs right now, but you also want to give yourself room to grow. Installing some extra shelving space will help support your growth. Luckily, if your growth ends up outpacing expectations, Unistor’s commercial and industrial shelving in Sydney is modular and expandable. If you need us to add to your system in a few years, we can do it.
  • What are the pain points of your warehouse staff? Every warehouse has pain points when it comes to racking and storage. Perhaps there isn’t enough floor space to get around, or maybe certain types of racking are difficult to access with lifting trucks. In any case, sitting down with your warehouse managers and listening to their suggestions will help you plan a more efficient storage solution for the people who are going to be using it every day.
