Industrial property is usually found on the outskirts of residential neighbourhoods, while still being central to key access points and transport routes. Often these areas also need to have ample space for development, which means that busy CBD areas are not suitable for industrial property like they are for office spaces or retail property.

Tips for choosing the best industrial property
Consider your distance from customers
Loaction determines access routes and major arterials used to get to your customer base. Is it better to consider a central distribution model or alternatively to have a distributed supply chain model. The term supply chain refers to the links that a product moves through on the way to the end customer. The efficiency is determined by cost and secondly the effort required to move it though the same.
The final leg is always where the most complication arises. Do you keep larger quantities in one central location, or distribute smaller quantities closer to the customer?
Be aware of the work you’ll be doing
You will need to take into account the nature of the materials you’ll be working with on your industrial property. Power requirement, chemical stores, height and yard size are all factors to be taken into account when considering product and operations
Analyse the space within your industrial property
Consider the amount of space you‘ll need. If the industrial property you’re looking at is not big enough, is there room for expansion? Will the property be able to accommodate your business as it grows over the next few years?
