Not getting the right size

You need to be specific in choosing the right size of the storage facility that you will take because getting the wrong size can really be a waste of money. If it’s too small, then you might need to pay extra for other storage, or if it’s too big, some spaces will be unused and can become a nesting ground of pests and mildew.

Not taking a look at the terrain

Before engaging with a warehousing company, you must make sure that their facilities meet your standards. The physical aspect and the environment of the facility must be considered. They must have fencing, surveillance cameras, gate, latches on the storage unit, on-site security personnel, and premises that are clean.

Considering only the price

It’s quite understandable that some will choose the one that offers the storage facility at the lowest price, but you should also think of the quality of service that they must give. You always get what you pay for, that’s why you really need to take time to research about a lot of warehousing companies that you can work with so that you will be sure that the money you invested will be worth it, as well as the kind of service they give.

Forgetting to ask about climate control

A good warehousing company puts thermostats, air-conditioning, and ventilation inside their facilities, to avoid damages especially to things that are sensitive to different temperature. This may cost more than the standard facility, and you can only apply for this kind of facility if you have antiques, leather things, important documents, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products, and all the other important things to you.

Not ensuring insurance

If you don’t have insurance yet, these warehousing companies can offer to give you insurance at an inflated price – and to avoid this, you must insure your products beforehand, from a reputable insurance provider.

You can avoid these mistakes now that you have read it. You now have the chance to keenly choose and proceed with engaging with a 3PL company. With that being said, you can trust us, Kaveh Logistics that we will provide you a high-quality service that you will not regret.
