The key to moving merchandise is organization.

  • When you rent the warehouse, make sure that they either have a forklift or a loading dock. This will help you save on lift gate charges for all future shipments. Check on freight receiving hours for you new location.
  • Make sure that trucks can access the street where the warehouse is located.
