As we head towards Spring, do you worry about whether you will have enough space in your garden centre? If you need to increase storage because the good weather promises profitable weekends with plenty of shoppers investing more money in to their gardens, then we can help.
Many garden centres thrive when the weather is good and there is an opportunity to bring in many new plants and products that have proved popular over the years. It is definitely true that as soon as the sun comes out, most of us are out in our gardens contemplating getting new plants and revamping the garden from the winter months.
Create More Space
Increasing space in your garden centre not only ensures that you have enough storage or display areas for new products but also gives you the extra room to promote seasonal products within. However, creating more space can be costly and will incur an investment that may not give you a complete return of investment in the future. Building more storage on site is not a quick solution as it takes time to appoint builders and get planning permission, let alone the additional costs of the materials involved. Moving to a new business site is a possibility but will also incur large costs and create upheaval when it’s perhaps not necessary.
Ideally, you need to create more space within your existing premises. Many garden centres are now seeing the benefits of temporary buildings for hire, whereby you can hire or purchase the structure, giving you a quick solution for your business. Temporary buildings for hire do not need foundations laid and they can be erected within a few weeks, instead of having to wait months. Temporary buildings for hire also provide you with a long-term solution to your business needs, with most temporary buildings lasting around 30 years.
Temporary buildings are designed using lightweight materials, so they are easily and quickly constructed. Depending on your site plan or the layout of your premises, temporary buildings for hire can be fabricated using a bespoke design to suit your requirements. Whether you need extra space for outdoor plants, coverage for water features or warehousing for additional seasonal equipment, a temporary building could be the most cost-effective solution for you. It is far cheaper to hire or buy a temporary building than to build on site.
Why Do Garden Centres Use Temporary Buildings?
Garden centres are finding that as the weather changes and the climate is less predictable, they do not want to risk using capital expenditure to create more space, and instead prefer to use a temporary solution. Most of the largest garden centre chains in the UK like B&Q and Homebase, use temporary buildings for their retail outlets. Garden centres are recognising that it is not necessary to build on site when a temporary building provides an easy answer. Temporary buildings for hire are not only cost-effective solutions but they are also quick to assemble and quick to dismantle, so when extra space is needed it can be constructed within a few days. However, although the phrase ‘temporary building’ suggests short-term use, the structures are so durable that they can last around 30 years.
