Moving Into Storage

At some point or another, most hotels eventually need storage solutions to hold items during a renovation or inventory update. In these cases, planning the move into storage will start by finding a safe, secure, and well-equipped storage facility to handle the quantity of items you’re placing in storage. 

Here are some of the reasons why hotels usually need storage solutions:

  • New furniture or remodeling: Has management decided it’s time for fresh, updated, more modern furniture or remodeling sinks, light fixtures, and other amenities? If so, you’ll have to remove the existing furniture, appliances, or other items and decide what you would like to do with them. Some hotels like to keep extra sets of items in storage as a back-up, while others use storage to hold items until they’re sold in the second-hand market.

  • Property relocation: Is your hotel moving to a new location? The prospect of transporting all of your furniture and other equipment is an intimidating one, however, storage can help to make the process a lot easierIt can also keep transportation costs down if you’re not planning on taking everything at once.

  • Inventory management: Some large chains of hotels develop a massive inventory of equipment. Those hotels will sometimes move these items between branches and keep spares in storage in different locationsInventory management in these cases should be extremely reliable and efficient, and storage can help to streamline the entire process.
