Things to Think about before Renting a Warehouse

While renting a space for business purposes, there are more than enough things to take into consideration. Make sure as a business owner that you comprehend the facility’s intended purpose and ask the landlord and listing agent pertinent questions to confirm that the space satisfies your requirements.

Examine your storage use

Verify their calculations and the information they’re including to make sure they’re accurate and meet your set of requirements. Ideally, the tenant should only pay for the space that is occupied by the business or available square feet. While some landlords would measure from the outside of the warehouse, others will try to include the area underneath the building’s drip lines. The ceiling height is relevant in this situation as well. Make sure you have enough vertical space if you need to stack objects, cartons, or pallets. There is no benefit to paying to rent space with a high ceiling if you do not require a stacking room.


Zones are created on a municipality’s land to promote urban expansion and development. They may be industrial, commercial, or residential. Industrial lease rates can be less expensive, but a landlord must be able to request a zoning amendment if the warehouse space is going to be used for retail.

Parking space

Asphalt or concrete parking lots require maintenance, which some landlords attempt to bill tenants for. Since parking area repairs are an ongoing expense and go towards determining the potential value of the property, the landlord should be responsible for them. The parking in warehouse for rent bang sao thong (โกดังให้เช่า บางเสาธง, term in Thai) area ought to be big enough to fit your business. Your parking lot needs to be big enough for tractor-trailer deliveries if your business depends on them. If necessary, confirm that trucks and other vehicles are allowed for overnight parking in the lot. Ensuring this before signing a contract would be beneficial for the business as a lack of parking space will not only hamper work but might also force the business to move out.

HVAC: Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

The bulk of warehouses lack complete building HVAC systems. Each Tenant is responsible for installing their HVAC unit if they need it. In many circumstances, you end up renting a location that was previously rented by someone else, who had an HVAC system installed and in operation. Try to avoid taking on the obligation of a potentially neglected unit because you don’t know whether the previous tenant kept the property properly maintained. Talk to the landlord about paying for an HVAC maintenance agreement to keep the current HVAC system in good working order. 

However, the landlord should be held liable if the unit requires significant repairs or replacement. Always demand that the landlord have the HVAC systems tested, fixed, and verified in writing that they are in good operating order by a licensed HVAC specialist before signing the lease. Not talking about the system can become a really expensive affair once you rent the property without proper information.
