If you maintain inventory in your shop, wheel bearings should be stored efficiently to maximize your stock room effectiveness. All wheel bearings should be stored in the same bin, shelving unit or designated holding area and not spread around the stock room or your shop. Hunting for bearings is a waste of time and can keep your customers waiting, resulting in poor service and lower revenues. Also, wheel bearings should be kept in their original packaging to preserve their integrity and protect them from unnecessary damage. Otherwise, the bearings can be affected by the environment or even damaged or stolen.
