Do I have to sign a lease?
No. We allow customers access to warehousing services on a flexible basis and without the commitment or obligations created by leases. We use a service level agreement which can be in place for as long or as little time as needed.
How does the pricing work ?
We charge a percentage commission on the value of successful deals and our pricing is communicated in a clear and transparent way so what you see is what you pay. You are sent one monthly invoice at the end of the month by Stowga with a breakdown of warehousing services utilised.
Can my employees work in the warehouse?
No. Stowga offers fully staffed solutions and services so there is no need to have additional employees in the warehouse.
Is there a minimum requirement to use Stowga?
We are a B2B business and to use the platform you must have a registered company and email address. We do not offer self-storage space aimed at individuals. For purely storage enquiries are minimum requirement is 50 pallets. For storage and additional service enquiries the minimum is 20 pallets.
