WebWarehouse became a victim of their own success!

Share Button

WebWarehouse was founded in 2006 when their former courier business had tried to rent storage space for one of their customers, they found a distinct lack of information and sales process within the industry, so decided to fill the need themselves by buying their own warehouses around the country and creating a website that would allow customers to easily find warehouse space in their desired area.

Web Warehouse’s customers were so glad to finally have a company who not only cared about operating their warehouses, but making the time to assess their client’s needs, informing them on the best warehousing available at the best price and answering any queries they have. As WebWarehouse were originally based in a more customer centred profession their key interest is in complete customer satisfaction, not just filling their warehouses as quick as possible without any interest in customer service.

Unfortunately WebWarehouse became a victim of their own success, due to their ability to generate leads so efficiently they soon filled all of their current warehouse space yet still had customers that needed more, WebWarehouse simply did not have enough space to meet the demands of their clients. WebWarehouse obviously didn’t want to have to send these clients elsewhere, especially after the poor response they received when looking for warehouse space themselves.

WebWarehouse realised that the main issue with other commercial storage companies was not that they didn’t have space; it was that they had no sales teams selling the space; WebWarehouse had plenty of experience in sales and customer service. They decided to offer these companies their services as the sales team they currently lacked, storage companies could become a member of WebWarehouse and would then be able to go back to operating their warehouses whilst WebWarehouse supplied them with the leads to fill them.

This setup has since proved highly successful for all involved, WebWarehouse did not have to turn away clients, warehouse operative could focus on running their warehouses and customers have their warehousing needs met in an easy and efficient manner.

SAFE HANDLING OF PALLETS FOR STORAGE

SAFE HANDLING OF  PALLETS FOR STORAGE

This easy-to-use Leader’s Guide is provided to assist in conducting a successful presentation. Featured are: INTRODUCTION: A brief description of the program and the subject that it addresses.

INTRODUCTION

Wooden pallets are very useful in material handling because they allow us to stack and move materials safely and quickly. They are used in almost all industrial and warehouse environments. Although we tend to forget about the hazards associated with pallets, each year many people suffer injuries from mishandling and misusing them.

This program reviews the basic safety rules and proper work methods needed to work safely with wooden pallets.

PALLET LOADING

  • Pallets come in different sizes and are constructed in various ways.
  • Each size and construction has different weight and load ranges and must be used according to your company’s specifications.
  • The size and loading of a pallet can affect the forklift or other material handling equipment.
  • As the load center of a pallet increases, the lifting capacity of the forklift decreases.

    PALLET INSPECTION

    • Before using a pallet, make sure it can be safely stored in a rack with a heavy load. It should be constructed of hardwood and be in good condition.

    • Top and bottom boards should be in place and should not be cracked or have pieces missing.
    • Stringers should be in good repair; if they are damaged, they should be properly repaired with plugs or mending tape.
      • There must be no protruding nails or slivers of wood on the pallet.
      • If it is determined that a pallet is unsafe, it should be taken out of service until it can be repaired.

        HANDLING AND USING PALLETS

      • Always wear gloves when handling wooden pallets.
      • Because they are heavy and awkward to carry, move a pallet by standing on its edge and sliding it.
      • Don’t throw pallets because you can injure yourself and damage the pallet.
      • Don’t store pallets on their edges or ends. Pallets stored on edges tend to fall and cause injuries.

  • Walk around pallets and not on them; many falls occur while attempting to walk on a pallet.
  • Separate pallets into stacks of usable pallets and those that need service. Don’t mix unsafe pallets with those ready for use.
    • Don’t manually stack pallets more than 7 or 8 high; use forklifts to make stacks higher.
    • To properly stack pallets, slide the pallet to one side of the stack. Using proper lifting motion, slide the pallet up the side of the stack and onto the top.

      SUMMARY

      • Because pallets are used on a daily basis, material handlers often don’t think about pallet safety.
      • Take the time to think about a large load lifted 20 feet in the air. Will the pallet be sturdy enough to hold it?
      • It takes an effort on everyone’s part to make pallet safety a part of the everyday operation.

Warehouse Space for a movie in Bicester, Oxfordshire

Share Button

WebWarehouse don’t always just find warehouse space for things such as pallets, crates etc. sometimes we receive more outlandish requests, just like when we were contacted by the Dutch production company Dynamic Entertainment DEH and asked to provide them with warehouse space in which to shoot some scenes for their film, The butterfly tattoo.

Dynamic Entertainment needed a large warehouse in or around Bicester, Oxfordshire but due to the nature of the scenes they would be shooting it had to be somewhere away from residential areas so as not to disturb the residents with the noise, they also required the warehouse to be especially clean so as not to ruin any costumes or set pieces. WebWarehouse managed to find them a warehouse in Bicester that met their requirements for size and cleanliness in an area that their noise level wouldn’t disturb any residents.

So if you have a request that you think might be a little out of the ordinary just let us know and we would be happy to accommodate your needs.

Volkswagen ask WebWarehouse for short term space

Share Button

Volkswagen training department in Milton Keynes contacted WebWarehouse recently requesting use of one of their warehouses to hold a training seminar for some of their staff, the warehouse had to be a relatively large open space, clean and they only needed it on a very short term licence. On receiving the request WebWarehouse immediately contacted some of their commercial landlord members to find Volkswagen the space they needed, they soon managed to find them an empty shared user space in which to hold the event that could be paid for on a rolling weekly contract, Volkswagen therefore didn’t have to worry about overspending as they could pay for the space only as they needed it.

With WebWarehouse you specify what type of space you need and exactly how long you need it for, in most cases you can even specify how you wish to pay for your space, whether it be on a weekly, monthly or yearly contract, that way you won’t end up paying for space that your no longer using.

Could the famous Cardington Hangers be the largest shared storage & warehousing environment in the UK?

Share Button

Cardington hangars were constructed in 1915 by the Short Brothers who bought land there to build airships for the Admiralty. They are probably most famous for the R101 crash on the 5th October 1930.

The hangers have served many purposes since, but in 1999 hanger 1 was put on the buildings at risk register as the grade two listed building had fallen into a state of long-term disrepair. Hanger 2 has been leased out to a film company and is enjoying a second life as a “sound stage” producing films like Batman and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!

Fosbern Hangars Ltd were interested in buying land in the surrounding area of the hangers, they acquired an option from the ministry to buy the 70-acre site and have submitted a plan to Bedford Borough Council for a mixed residential, commercial and community development providing 3,000 new homes.

They are experts in property development having built more than 100,000 homes since they formed, but when they purchased hanger 1 knowing they wished to turn it into commercial warehouse space they contacted WebWarehouse, we have had discussions with them, aiding and advising them on how to convert the hanger to make it available for commercial use. Bellway have recently invested millions in a roof renovation, once restorations are complete Fosbern Hangars Ltd can start profiting from our lead generation for their new shared warehouse space.
