New Warehouse Space = Lower Storage Rates for You
We are expanding! Storage is in great demand and to meet that demand we have acquired more storage space. As a result, we are able to help you manage your bottom line by lowering storage costs and also by providing clarity on costs. Our storage fees remain the same all year….we charge storage using a standard pallet size – about 60 cubic feet. Your storage bill will be predictable and stable allowing you to focus on more important issues.
Our New Rates Start NOW! Contact us today to take advantage of this incredible deal.
If you have storage with us now you’ll receive the reduced rate for September – no need to use a code or to ask for the new rate. A standard pallet – per Amazon requirements – is 48″ x 40″ x 55″. This is the standard we use for billing out storage. Every day is the same – no high season rates…no oversize rates….no hazardous materials rates. $1 per pallet per day. Period.
Amazon Storage Pitfalls
Is your storage bill at Amazon more than you expected? You aren’t alone. Storage fees at Amazon are calculated on a cubic foot calculation based upon what dimensions you enter into your product details. Amazon also verifies product dimensions and sometimes makes a mistake. Other things to be aware of are high season storage rates (October – December), hazardous goods storage surcharge and long term storage.
Check your listing to be sure your product details are correct AND check your storage invoice periodically. You may find you are paying oversize rates which one of our clients did. A support ticket to Amazon fixed the problem but it had gone unnoticed for several months.
High Season Storage:
Don’t forget that as of October 1st, Amazon will charge much higher rates. Using our standard 60 cu ft pallet as an example, their rates go from $41.40 to $144.00 per month. Yes, Amazon does adjust their storage according to exactly what you have in stock, but if your stock isn’t moving fast, you’ll pay the price. View Amazon’s information on storage here.
Returns are another tricky situation. Before you decide to withdraw excess inventory, make sure you know you can resubmit the goods for later sale. This depends on your Inventory Performance Index Score as well as the condition of the goods. Will the goods be returned in good shape?
We have found that often the answer is no – these goods come from multiple fulfillment centers in random batches. They may look a bit worse for wear making it necessary to repackage at the least – or they may be unsellable due to breakage or soiling.
We recommend you do the math….if it is not clear that you can sell these items later – without spending money on repackaging or storage – it is probably best to just do a disposal order. Amazon is now partnered with several charities that will take certain goods and if you are in the US, you should be able to at least get a tax deduction.
