Open Stack/Free standing Storage

 img_hero_officemoving

O ur warehousing facility is particularly effective for short-term and long-term storage so generally its rare for us to open stack your furniture.

If it were to be put into our open stack free standing storage we would treat the furniture as follows.

  • Each furniture item is wrapped in a furniture removal blanket,
  • An inventory of the furniture is made noting item number and condition on pickup,
  • your goods will be delivered into our store via one of our local moving vans,
  • our storeman will be unloaded protected with specially designed covers and sectioned off,
  • and professionally stacked into their storage location.

How often is this storage method used?

Walkers would only use this method for short term storage or in-transit storage for small consignments, as a general rule these consignments will go into  plywood storage modules, these are labelled and the location and your name and move reference number is documented on the module and our storage tracking database is updated so that we can track and locate all consignments in store.What is open stack storage?

Will I need this type of storage?

Open stack and free standing storage is a method we used a lot 20 years ago, and or in the peak times in the business when we have a lot of interstate transit freight that needs to be consolidated so small shipments we would use this method.

As a general rule  Walkers facilities  have moved away from this traditional method for housekeeping and insurance reasons, instead we have replaced this method with containerising and modulising small consignments as it reduces the need to double handle and maintain the consignment.

What size storage would this method best suit?

Walkers would only use this method for short term storage or in-transit storage for small consignments, as a general rule these consignments will go into the plywood storage modules you see in the picture above, these are labelled and the location and your name and move reference number is documented on the module and our storage tracking database is updated so that we can track and locate all consignments in store.
