Creating A Happier Storage Environment

Since I became an adult, I have had a really difficult time parting with belongings. I just love remembering things that are tied to a memory, even if the memory isn't always a happy one. Unfortunately, this has also made it difficult for me to store everything I love into one solitary space, which is why I started learning as much as I could about the process. It has been really fascinating for me to focus completely on storage, and before I knew it, things were really starting to come together. I wanted to make a blog about storage to help other people, so here you go.

Preparing Your Retail Clothing Store For A Move

Whether you are moving to a larger location or just a new space, moving your retail clothing business takes a bit of planning. With the right plan and the help of your commercial moving service, you can help to ensure moving day goes smoothly. Here are some helpful tips you can use to get ready for this transition.

Keep Stockroom Inventory Boxed

For the weeks leading up to your move, try to keep as much stockroom inventory as possible in boxes. This means less for you to pack later on, and it helps to keep the back room a bit more organized as you get the rest of the store ready for your move. Place the packing slips on the exterior of each box so you can keep track of what's inside, and label these boxes with a note that instructs staff members not to open them.

Invest In Z-Racks

If you don't already have Z-racks or rolling racks for your inventory, consider investing in some before the move. You can bundle clothing on hangers in groups and cover them with plastic garment bags for easy transfer onto the racks. Your commercial moving service can then transfer the racks to the moving truck, leaving you with fewer items that need to be packed in boxes. Organize the Z-racks according to the fixtures you have on the sales floor, as this will make it easier to set up your apparel items in the new store. After the move is over, you can use these racks to sort and store extra inventory in your stockroom.

Break Down Displays

Whenever possible, break down displays and fixtures so they are easier to move. Work with your commercial moving company to determine how to best prepare these items for moving. Shelf brackets and other hardware can be placed into plastic storage containers for easy organization, and shelves can be wrapped in moving blankets. For Apparel racks, remove the arms and any shelves before having them placed in the moving truck. Use plastic wrap to bundle these pieces together, and consider wrapping entire fixtures in plastic wrap to protect them from scratches or scuffs. If you have glass display cases, you may be able to remove the glass panels to make them easier to move.

Partner with your commercial moving service, like Walsh Moving & Storage, to discuss logistics and details about your move. Together, you can create a plan to follow as you prepare your business for a move to a new location.
