Do You Need Convenient Commercial Storage Space?

Are you a St. Louis-based small business owner in search of ways to upgrade your supply line and shipping time? Do you need help with ensuring fast availability of high-demand products? Zipp Express can help!

 Our warehouse spans 40,000 square feet, which isn’t quite as big as a football field, but it’s pretty close.  And our ceilings stand at an impressive height of 25 feet, akin to a two-story house with an additional five feet. This, combined with columns placed 40 feet apart, means that we can store everything from large equipment to small loads of freight.

To put it simply, our warehouse is incredibly spacious, capable of accommodating both your long and short-term storage needs. And we can store anything except explosives, live animals, or illegal contraband (you’d be surprised at the things people have asked us to store).

This means we have the capacity to offer you the convenient commercial storage space you need. No more running out of high-demand merchandise! Renting space in our warehouse can offer countless advantages, and here are just a few.


Off-site Storage Means Better use of Retail Space

Inventory management is crucial to the success of all businesses. Time and experience have demonstrated that a failure to balance one’s inventory can hurt your business in ways you may not even be considering. 

Efficient utilization of retail space is important too, whether you have a small boutique or share retail space with another business. This is especially important if you want to present a broad range of products. And you are more likely to keep your best customers if you keep their in-demand items on hand.

But to do that, you must be able to restock before those items run out, which isn’t easy when most onsite stock rooms hold—at best—a week’s worth of merchandise. This is an even bigger challenge during the holidays when in-demand items are snapped up by eager shoppers. This means small business owners need to find a cost-efficient way to keep products within arm’s reach, even if they don’t have room for them in their stockroom.

Having access to off-site storage by way of Zipp Express’s warehouse means never having an over-full stockroom and being able to easily locate what you do have on hand.

Convenient Commercial Storage Space Translates to Savings!

When you rely on Zipp Express for your storage needs, you’ll never have to disappoint your customers.

Buying in bulk almost always results in lower per unit costs. If you’re still in the early years of your business, being able to buy ahead can help you increase your profit margin. So when you come across a deal on something, you need the freedom to purchase it without worrying where you’re going to put it. Having convenient commercial storage space available allows you to purchase large pallets of bulk goods and hold on to them until you’re ready to stock them.

If you rely on Zipp Express as a place to store your stockroom over-flow and you run across a great deal on a hot ticket item, you will be able to snap it up. You can trust us to store your bulk shipments in our secure storage facility until you’re ready for them.

And if you can’t spare employees for pickup, Zipp can deliver supplies to your store or office. With our low LTL rates, you can save money by requesting only what you need, when you need it. 

 Storing Displays, Seasonal Decorations, And Extra Shelving

Vibrant displays and festive decorations play a crucial role in the success of any business. They stimulate interaction, capture customers’ interest, and facilitate sales. During holidays, displays boost engagement and enthusiasm, increasing store traffic and sales. 

Some businesses prefer to rent displays rather than keeping them in storage, but this comes at a cost and reduces profits. This is particularly true if store owners frequently change decorations. Once a store owner identifies which displays are the most effective, it only makes sense to buy them. The same applies to extra shelving. 

With Zipp Express, when you need them, they’re just a phone call away. We have eight dock doors with ramps that can accommodate loads and trucks of any size. Call us ahead of time and we’ll make sure they’re waiting for you. So not only is it easy to locate your stored items, it’s easy to load them up and take them back to your place of business, too.  

 Speaking of Holidays

The popularity of seasonal shopping like Christmas and Black Friday lies in the ability to attract large crowds and drive sales through the roof. These months are eagerly anticipated by most retailers as a chance to compensate for any previous losses. 

In today’s world, small business owners need to step up their operations to compete with big box stores and online shopping platforms like Amazon. Hiring more employees and stocking up on popular items and regular merchandise ensures that you won’t be blindsided by unexpected spikes in sales. But it’s difficult to “stock up” when there isn’t enough storage space available. On top of that, the search for items in an overfull stockroom is not just frustrating, but also poses risks to your employees and the merchandise. Your profit margins may be impacted by unnecessary breakage or misleading customers about stock availability.  

So it stands to reason that you need off-site storage that’s easy to access. For example, what if you have a run on this year’s newest, hottest toy? If you planned ahead and stored it with Zipp Express it won’t be a problem. All you have to do is give us a call so we can either have your pallet ready for you or deliver it to you ASAP.

As you can see, our warehouse can become one of the biggest secrets to your success!
