American Surplus Inc. buys and sells used warehouse storage and used material handling equipment, and has an outstanding reputation of working with our customers to get them the right equipment they need quickly, and at the most competitive price available. Since 1992 we have been providing used pallet racking, used conveyors, used steel shelving, used mezzanines, and much more. 


Challenge us to get answers to your warehouse storage or material handling problems, issues, or concerns. We have an incredibly large inventory of used equipment on hand and should have no problem finding you the right product in a timely fashion.


With over 530,000 square feet of inventory in our warehouse, ASI is the largest used material handling dealer in the country. All of our inventory is stored indoors, so weather damage is not a concern when buying used equipment from us. Our main facility is located in RI, but we have shipping locations throughout the nation. This allows us to ship nationally while still maintaining competitive freight rates.


ASI also buys used material handling equipment, warehouse equipment, and industrial storage equipment. All used equipment must be in good working condition for ASI to consider purchasing it. We regularly buy large quantities of used conveyor, used mezzanines, used steel shelving, used pallet rack, and much, much more! Call us today to speak with Mike Cienava II from our Purchasing Department.

The prices that are displayed are dependent on the quantity desired, the capacity required, and the condition. Installation services are also available, ensuring that your used material handling equipment is installed properly in as little time as possible.
