Leasing a Warehouse? Beware these Six Fatal Errors0

Posted by Thomas Miller, CCIM

fatal_errorLeasing a warehouse or renewing that lease are functions performed occasionally through the lifetime of a business. Many businesses handle these processes in-house – getting through it as quickly as possible and moving on until they are forced to deal with it again. In doing so, they’re making fatal business errors that cost their company significant avoidable expenses.

Fatal Error #1: The DIY Approach

Handling your warehouse lease or renewal yourself can be compared to defending yourself in court. In doing so, you’re willingly placing yourself in an environment where highly trained and experienced professionals make their living. And there you are, maybe doing a bit of online research and certainly making up the rest as you go. Who would do this? And who could possibly expect a favorable outcome?

Instead…
Rather than winging it and subjecting your business to your inexperience, seek out the services of a highly qualified professional agency that specializes in warehouse leasing. Let them provide the guidance, counsel and direction to secure the very best rates, terms and conditions for your lease.
