Online Clothing Sales – How Do You Store Your Inventory?

by Charles Martinez

The market for preowned clothes is changing online. In years past, it wasn't easy for people to get online, list, and sell their gently worn clothing, but these days, people are making a good living doing it. There are a number of new apps that make it easy for just about anyone to open up their own store and begin selling clothing. If you are considering reselling used clothing, you're going to need a place to store your inventory and you're going to have to get things set up just right. If you fail to get organized, you will struggle to succeed. Here, you'll find a few tips that can help you get organized and succeed with your sales.

Inventory Storage Location

You will need plenty of space to store your inventory. You may think that a small closet is enough space to get you by, but soon you'll outgrow that small closet and things will begin to take over your home.

Instead of struggling to keep everything smashed in a small closet, consider leasing a heated storage unit. You want the unit to be climate controlled so that the materials that are stored inside will not shrink or become damaged due to exposure to moisture, heat, or cold temperatures.

The location of the storage unit should be convenient for you. You don't want to go out of your way to get to what you need to ship that day. So, find a unit that is between your home and the post office or just up the road from your home. Convenience is key.

Hang or Bin?

Do you want to hang all of the clothes or store them in bins? How you store the items is determined by what type of items you're storing. Anything like sweaters that will lose their shape if they're hung for a while should be stored in plastic bins. Dresses, suits and things that wrinkle easily should be hung. Sweatshirts, t-shirts, and jeans are all up to you to decide – you might find it easier to locate things in numbered bins or you might like the ability to flip through entire racks of clothing quickly to find what you're looking for.

How you store it is a preference in most cases, but just be sure that how you store the items won't damage them.

One thing you should never do is toss shoes into one big bin together. Instead, wrap the pairs of shoes in plastic bags or store them in shoe boxes on shelves. You don't want them to scuff each other while you dig through the bin looking for mates.

Your online sales business can continue to grow now that you have more space to store your inventory. Continue working and soon, you'll be reaping the rewards of all of your hard work. Contact a company like Discount Storage for more information. 


About Me

Understanding Proper Storage Practices

I have never been the kind of person who loves to go through and eliminate clutter, but about six months ago, I realized that my storage space was a complete nightmare. It was really difficult to figure out what I needed to do and where I needed to put things, but the more I cleaned, the more I realized how much I had left to tidy up. It was amazing to see how far things progressed, and before I knew it, my space looked and felt a lot better. This blog is all about understanding proper storage practices and keeping your unit immaculate.
