At first glance, it may seem that safekeeping is an improved analogue of a warehouse lease. In fact, this is not entirely true, since each of these services involves slightly different conditions.

The main distinguishing feature is the moment of payment. With responsible storage, you pay only for the area occupied by your goods / things. This means that when there is no need to store certain items, then money for storage will not be charged. At the same time, companies are firmly convinced that, if necessary, there will always be a place for them in warehouses.

As for the lease of the warehouse, there is absolutely no difference whether the warehouse is filled with goods or not, the amount payable is billed monthly or weekly, depending on the agreement.

Giving preference to safekeeping services, the customer gets rid of many additional costs. So, for example, when renting a warehouse, you have to pay not only the cost of the rent itself, but also the invoice for electricity and utilities, it is important to take care of the availability of special loading equipment, hire movers and security guards, and much more.

Consignment warehouses have sufficient scale. This makes it possible to expand the area for the customer. Those. when the company’s turnover starts to increase and sales volumes grow, it will always be possible to pay for additional warehouse footage and continue to cooperate with the chosen transport company.
