Do not worry that your past work experience does not match a particular warehouse job as there could be a different position you might qualify for. Be sure to put all of your contact information including phone, email and address on your resume.
Go through your local newspaper and check the classified section for job ads. Here you will find many different job listings. If you see a warehouse jobs then send your resume out to as many as possible. Remember not to worry if you do not have that much experience as warehouse jobs can have different requirements for various positions.
Check industrial trade magazines:
You can also check different industrial trade magazines for possible job listings in your area. Apply to as many warehouse job openings as you can.
Get on the internet and search for different warehouses in your area. Make a listing of all their contact information and start sending out resume’s to them. Also, you can search for job placement websites that have job listings for a variety of different companies. Make sure to apply to as many warehouse job openings as possible.
Visit warehouse in your area:

Some warehouses might not post their job openings regularly and if you visit them then ask for the human resource manager to drop your resume off. This method can be quite effective as all the confusion and mess of emailing and follow ups is reduced by meeting face to face.
Once you have applied online and in person, you should now be patient and wait for a response. If you do not hear anything then you can always make a reminder call to find out what is going on with your application.
