What’s Holding You Back From Installing Our Milwaukee Mezzanines?

Mezzanine levels are one of the fastest & easiest ways to give your warehouse more square footage without moving your setup or paying for an expensive expansion. Despite this, there are still many Milwaukee warehouses that are holding out on making the purchase. If you are one of them, DAK Equipment wants to know what’s holding you back so we can help you overcome your concerns about installing a mezzanine. Here are some of the common concerns we hear from customers:

  • It’s too expensive.
    When compared to the cost of purchasing a new building, moving your equipment and inventory to a new site, or an expansion to your current building, the cost of a mezzanine is much more affordable. For the amount of square footage you can gain, it’s the most bang for your buck.
  • It’s too complicated.
    The DAK Equipment & Engineering team can take care of everything. We can measure your space, help you place the order, and even do the installation for you. You won’t have to worry about anything except how to fill up all your new space.
  • It’s too time-consuming.
    Mezzanines can be set up by our experienced crew in a very short amount of time. We’ll coordinate with you to ensure the least amount of disruption to your workflow, too, so you don’t have to stop production any longer than is absolutely necessary.

The Benefits of Staying in Your Current Milwaukee Warehouse

Using something like mezzanines or modular offices inside of your Milwaukee warehouse can help you stay in your current space while your business continues to grow. Adding those additional spaces takes advantage of unused space within your warehouse and create additional square footage without moving to a bigger space. For most businesses, this is the right thing to do thanks to so many advantages of staying put. Here are some of the benefits your Milwaukee warehouse could enjoy if you use mezzanines and modular offices to expand:

  1. Your staff won’t need to relocate. While some of them may be willing to drive further, chances are your warehouse move won’t be a small one. If you end up moving a great distance, you could end up losing some of your team who find jobs closer to home.
  2. You’ll be in the neighborhood you know and love. Every neighborhood has its quirks, even the industrial ones. Changing locations means needing to work with new industrial neighbors, and unfortunately, you won’t have any control over who is next to your new warehouse.
  3. It saves your company money. Moving a warehouse is an incredibly expensive undertaking. You’ll need to invest in new shelving and equipment and get it all set up before you move into your new space. Downtime can be costly, as well, and a mezzanine can be installed in a much shorter amount of time than moving an entire warehouse.

Of course, there are some advantages to moving your Milwaukee warehouse as well:

  1. New infrastructure. If you have the capital, setting up a new warehouse can be an excellent opportunity to upgrade your equipment and infrastructure, which could, in turn, make your warehouse more efficient. That could end up paying you back for the cost of the move.
  2. A clean slate. Moving is a chance to get rid of paperwork, projects, and junk that’s been lying around in your old space. Cleaning it out before you get to the new space is a great way to start fresh, as well as eliminate hazards and freshen up your process.
  3. Your space can be more easily customized to your needs. Sometimes it’s easier to customize your warehouse when you are starting from scratch. You’ll be able to set up exactly how you want it without worrying about the existing equipment. Working with a professional warehouse designer can improve your efficiency and use of space even more.

Whether you decide to stay or go, DAK Equipment & Engineering has everything you need. We can help you install a great mezzanine in your current warehouse to expand your square footage, or we can help you find storage solutions for your new warehouse to maximize your space. Either way, you’ll be working with a team who cares about the success of your business and can help you custom design your warehouse. Get in touch with us today by giving us a call or sending us an email for more information. We’ll help you setup your new or old warehouse so it perfectly meets your needs!

Three Ideas to Make Use of a Mezzanine Level in Your Milwaukee Warehouse

Our Milwaukee mezzanine systems are a great way to introduce more floor space to your crowded warehouse. By adding an additional level of space, you open up your warehouse to all kinds of new possibilities. These are just three ways you can put your new Milwaukee mezzanine to work in your warehouse:

  • Use it as an assembly station. If your warehouse handles products that need to be assembled before they go out the door, your new mezzanine is the perfect place to house this operation. Parts and pieces can go up to the mezzanine, be assembled by your team, and come back down as product ready to be shipped.
  • Use it for offices. While most of your warehouse workers need to be on the floor, many others won’t and their offices and desk space can eat up valuable product space on your floor. Moving the offices and desks of warehouse workers to a mezzanine level can get them out of the way as well as give them an eagle’s eye view of the operation.
  • Use if for seasonal storage. If you have items that you only ship out during certain seasons or other products that you access infrequently, a mezzanine level can be ideal for the storage of these items. They’ll stay accessible while remaining out of your way.

Ready for your Milwaukee mezzanine to be installed? Give the DAK Warehouse team a call. We’ll get you set up with a mezzanine you love. Call our project management team or contact us through our website to get started.
