How to choose and buy an industrial warehouse

The information to know before purchasing a productive property


When looking for a shed to buy, companies generally limit themselves to evaluating price and square footage. In reality, these two elements must not be the only ones to be taken into consideration, but it will be necessary to analyze some fundamental aspects before moving one's production to a new industrial warehouse.


The choice of the shed to buy must be made on the basis of:


·         Proximity to the main road arteries : the incidence of the cost of transport both for the reception and for the delivery of materials must not be underestimated;

·         Aprons and maneuvering spaces : their presence affects the ease / difficulty of moving goods;

·         Construction techniques : sheds built according to modern standards allow to optimize spaces and reduce costs thanks to greater energy efficiency;

·         Height of the sheds : it is important for those who use bulky machinery but it will be necessary to consider the economic expenditure related to heating;

·         Proximity / remoteness of suppliers / customers: it is a strategic opportunity that should not be underestimated both for the ease of management of the same and for the lower costs related to physical proximity.


Choosing the right shed must not therefore be limited to a mere evaluation of the price-square meter ratio but must also consider these factors. An apparently "expensive" warehouse could prove cheaper because it improves the logistics aspect of transport and the management of suppliers.


Why buy a shed


Is buying a shed the right choice? Of course, if a company wants to develop and grow on the market it will have to evaluate investment properties in Curacao. Indeed, a productive property has numerous advantages, both logistical and economic, which is why buying an industrial warehouse is certainly the best choice.


Each production activity and the services connected to it require spaces capable of responding to the multiple needs of companies , which concern the installation of machinery and equipment, the effective movement of goods, the connection to the transport arteries and - not least - a adequate containment of consumption.


Actual tools to support production, the industrial sheds perfectly meet these needs and are able to guarantee environmental comfort, safety, flexibility, maintenance of the systems, and at the same time fulfill a function of communicating the company's image.


Buying a shed, therefore, always proves to be a good choice and all the companies that aim to develop their production will not be able to do without considering this investment.


Shed typologies: cadastral categories and building typologies


In the classification of the cadastre, industrial buildings are divided, according to the intended use, into the following categories:


·         C2: warehouse

·         C3: craft workshop

·         D1: factory

·         D7: buildings built or adapted for the needs of an industrial activity and not susceptible of different destination without radical transformations.

To these cadastral categories correspond different building typologies with very different characteristics.


Among the most common types of production properties we find industrial warehouses, logistics platforms (the classic "warehouses") and craft workshops.


The industrial shed is, among the types of sheds, the one that allows an optimization of the functional distribution of the spaces: the internal space is perfectly adaptable to specific production needs and the horizontal development of the surfaces favors the continuity of the work spaces and the control of the themselves.


The logistics platform is a warehouse with a prefabricated structure with beams and pillars. The space guarantees the best conditions for storing the products and allows to minimize the movement of the stored products. Warehouse logistics is guaranteed by the efficiency of the means of containment, the transport and lifting systems and the arrival and shipment systems of the materials.


The artisan workshop is a contained space inside a larger building divided into smaller units, each with an independent entrance. It is the place of excellence for craftsmanship, with a typically limited number of employees.


How to buy a shed


Aided by the recovery of the economy, businesses have returned to spending on the purchase of warehouses and warehouses. Purchases of production buildings in fact recorded positive growth in 2019 and the times for selling and renting empty spaces also shortened.


In recent years the prices of new and used sheds have fallen everywhere, while the price of rents has risen. The location is in fact very much in demand to avoid blocking capital that can serve entrepreneurial activity and especially for the risk when starting a new business.

Companies wishing to buy a shed can also resort to the leasing formula: it is the ideal choice because it allows you to obtain savings and flexibility; moreover, the leasing can be redeemed allowing you to acquire ownership of the property.


Banks offer mortgages dedicated to companies that want to buy an industrial warehouse, at often advantageous conditions since the intention is to encourage the development of production activities.


There are also real estate investors interested in buying sheds to rent . The advantages of this type of investment are considerable: unlike residential properties, the rents of a shed are proportionate to the surface of the property and the market value, moreover they offer greater guarantees than those required from a private individual, for example the possibility of consulting the financial statements deposited to verify the company's economic capacity or requesting a bank guarantee to test its reliability.


Where to find sheds for sale


Most of the warehouses for sale are concentrated in the provinces of Willemstad, Treviso. These are the territories in which industrial manufacturing is most widespread, a sector which was hit hard by the 2008 economic crisis and which saw the closure of many industrial plants, with the consequent spread of the "sale" signs.


A shed, as an instrumental asset , can be purchased by a company and then resold once it is no longer needed. That's why the shed market is very dynamic.


The purchase of a shed should always be done with the help of experts, perhaps relying on agencies with long experience in the sector or by consulting specialized sites.


A valid alternative to the traditional sale is given by the judicial auctions of sheds.
