When it comes to keeping your warehouse organized and running smoothly, pallet racking is essential. But to install an entirely new system and layout of pallet racking can be incredibly expensive, time-consuming, and overwhelming. From having your pallet racking system designed and installed to purchasing the litany of parts, pieces, and connectors. So, the last thing that you want to do is jump right in and purchase all-new pallet racking equipment for your facility. One of the best ways to save a great deal of money for your business is to purchase used pallet racking. This is why today, the pallet racking pros at American Surplus wanted to take a little time and share our steps to use when buying used pallet racking.

Determine Your Needs

Every business has different needs. Before you can go out and buy any pallet racking system or setup, you must ensure that it works for your warehouse. The last thing you want to do is end up with a system that doesn’t fit in your space or that causes you to lose productivity and products. Take the time to determine your needs and design a pallet racking system that fits your budget. Working closely with the experienced specialists at American Surplus, can simplify this entire process for your business and ensure you have the right system and setup from the start.

Contact Suppliers

When you’re buying used equipment of any kind for your business, you not only need to know that it’s in the best condition possible and as promised, but you need to be confident that you can trust the supplier you’re buying from. A reputable supplier will be able to help you determine what type of pallet rack is best for your warehouse. Used equipment can come in a variety of conditions. Therefore, having a trusted supplier is extremely important. American Surplus Inc. inspects all our used equipment making sure that it’s of the highest quality.

Inspect Pallet Rack Before Buying

Don’t ever buy something as critical to your business as a pallet rack without first seeing it for yourself. Buying pallet racking sight unseen just sets you up for failure. You want to be able to inspect the condition of the equipment in person with the salesperson so that you can adjust your order before you buy. If you are unable to see the pallet rack in person, you’ll want to ask for high quality photos or video chat with a sales team member to see the pallet rack from various angles.
