Q. How do I choose the right pallet rack system?
A. Many things come into play when choosing the correct pallet rack for your specific needs. One of the most important things to consider when selecting pallet rack is what you plan to use it for. Do you want to store pallets, boxes, totes, or loose items? Warehouse1 offers in-house design experts to help you make the right decisions. We can help you determine the correct profile of rack based on your ceiling clear height, lift equipment, pallet dimensions, number of pallets to store and the flow of your operation.
Q. Should I buy new or used pallet racking?
A. The number one advantage of buying used pallet rack is the cost savings over new. Another great advantage of used pallet rack is the availability. We carry a huge selection of used material on our 25 acre facility in Kansas City, Missouri, that ships quickly, meaning you don’t have to wait 6 to 10 weeks for manufacturing and delivery.
Q. What style pallet rack should I buy?
