Your factory/warehouse needs to store dozens or pallets at a time and you have decided that pallet racking is the solution. Well here's something you may not know, you can purchase used pallet racking for a fraction of the cost and it is usually in excellent condition.
Be sure you know the grade of pallet racking that you need before jumping at the lowest price you find. It is always best to purchase a system with a higher bearing capacity than you will need. With all the design options available you should have no problem finding a rack that is capable of providing you with safe storage.
The purchase of used pallets racks can save you a lot of money or cost you your business. An essential infrastructure that gets used day in and day out needs to be dependable.
Delivery costs go up every time they raise the cost of fuel, and fuel prices are high. The cost of shipping a large order across the country can be nearly as much as the cost of the purchase itself. Paying a little extra to get something that is local could prove to save a lot of money in the long run.
Secondary costs like delivery and assembly can quickly turn that big deal into a big drain. Many outlets also sell racks that come without essential hardware such as screws and bolts. A 20,000 square foot warehouse will require thousands of pieces of hardware that could add up to hundreds of extra dollars. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting before signing that check.
