When it comes to picking a warehouse for your business, it can be easy to get bogged down in where it is, and how much it’s going to cost. We get it – you want warehousing facilities that are going to help your business, not hinder it. But it is important that you understand all of the benefits you can get from a good warehouse – which extend way beyond location and money – and that’s where we at Graylaw Freight come in.
With so much to consider for your business logistics, it’s hard to know where to begin. From minimising cost to maximising customer satisfaction, it can be hard to find the perfect balance, but at Graylaw Freight we can offer a number of ways that can help you do just that.
A wealth of experience
When we say we’re experts in warehousing, we mean it – in fact we’ve been doing this for over 35 years now! During this time, we have established strong relationships with high-profile companies and supported local businesses to expand and thrive using our services.
We have seen first-hand the importance of a well-oiled operation, which is why we have a team of in-house logistics experts who can help your business thrive. We take care of the fine print, so that you can focus on what matters the most, your business.
Location matters to us
Whilst it shouldn’t be the ‘be all and end all’ of your decision-making process when picking a warehouse – location should still factor into the equation. A well-placed warehouse means you can conveniently transport goods to major commercial locations, and effortlessly meet customer expectations.
However, a warehouse that isn’t located in your preferred area shouldn’t be instantly dismissed either. At Graylaw Freight, we have warehouse depots in both Skelmersdale and the Isle of Man, and benefit from excellent connections. If you are looking for a specific location, we have a network of reliable contacts that can offer warehousing across the UK. So, if we can’t help – we certainly know people who can.
24/7 manned security
One of the main benefits to choosing a warehousing and logistics company to handle the storage of your goods is the increased levels of security. Looking after your own goods storage can be cost-effective, but it is also often much less secure than hiring an experienced company that have all the solutions in place to keep your stock safe.
You can reduce the risk to your business by entrusting us with your stock, and in doing so, you can benefit from a team of experienced security staff, and round the clock maintenance.
Our security team are all trained with observation skills and dog handling. They also all hold SIA licenses, which ensures they are properly trained and qualified to do their job – so you can be rest assured that when you choose Graylaw Freight, you are certainly getting more for your money.
Aside from size and location, one of the key hallmarks of a good warehouse is the facilities it can offer. Any distribution company can offer decent storage, but if you’re looking to get the most out of your warehousing, then picking a company that offer the highest quality facilities can take your business to the next level.
At Graylaw Freight, our warehouses are kitted out with loading ramps and electronic power hand trucks, meaning that we can offer easy logistical integration for deliveries – great news for you and your customers too!
Our team are qualified to safely handle goods of all kinds using our industry specialist equipment, guaranteeing that all items are dealt with safely and efficiently.
Pick, pack and distribution
What happens when one of your customers places an order with you? At Graylaw Freight, we are hands on – so as soon as an order comes through, we can pick and pack it safely and appropriately, and we will even distribute it for you too!
There’s nothing worse than waiting days and days for a delivery, only for it to arrive looking battered and a little worse for wear. With us, this is never the case. We use our in-house facilities and palletised delivery system to ensure that every order we deliver is done so in a timely and secure manner.
