warehouse storage guide

Warehouse storage guide to help you get exactly what you need


Customers often come to us asking for a warehouse storage guide for their business, because they don’t know what their options are or how to describe what they are looking for. We have many years of experience in pallet racking and warehouse shelving and so we will happily spend as much time as you need to help you to make sure you get the right storage system for your stock.

These tips will help you to give us the information we need in order to give you the best quote, at the best price, for your warehouse racking requirements:

  • Measure the area where the racking will go as accurately as you can (twice!) in millimetres. We will try to fit as much storage racking as we can into the dimensions you give us, so it’s really important that it is measured correctly.
  • If you are storing pallets, we need to know what type. UK pallets are 1200mm x 1000mm and Euro pallets are 1200mm x 800mm (there are also many other non-standard pallet sizes). The maximum height and weight of each pallet will also help us supply the right racking for you.
  • If you are adding to pallet racking that you already have, we need to know what type it is. There are many different manufacturers of industrial racking (Dexion, Link 51, Apex, PSS and Redirack are among the most common) and none of them are compatible with each other. If you aren’t sure what you have, our Identify My Racking page might help, or you can send us a photo and we will be able to identify it.
  • All of our upright frames are supplied assembled and with footplates attached, beam locks are supplied with all horizontal beams. Our used racking is checked to SEMA specifications prior to dispatch.
  • Let us know if you need other materials with your pallet racking. We have Timber and wire mesh decking, column guards, pallet support bars and rack end barriers in stock. If you aren’t sure whether you need them, we can talk you through all of the benefits and points to consider before ordering.
  • We can deliver to any UK mainland address. In the next week we have orders going to Leeds, Crewe, Hull and Kent, so wherever you are we will give you a great delivered price. If you would prefer to collect your order, please let us know 

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place an order or for a warehouse storage guide for a member of the team. Alternatively, you can send us your details on an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

second hand storage equipment

What second hand storage equipment do I need?


If you are looking for second hand storage equipment to add to what you already have, or to replace damaged parts, then we can help you to get exactly what you need. You might already know the manufacturer, sizes and quantities of the pallet racking that you are looking for, in which case give us a call and we will confirm availability before sending you a quote. However, there are many different types of warehouse racking available, and almost all of them aren’t compatible with each other, so you need to be sure that you are ordering the right type of industrial racking to avoid delays to your business operation.

Our Identify My Racking page shows you some of the leading manufacturers of warehouse racking, such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, PSS and Redirack. If your existing racking doesn’t have a name stamped on it, the shape of the holes in the upright frames is often a good way to check what you have. We also have a page showing less common pallet racking systems, but it might be easiest to send us a photo of your existing industrial racking and we can confirm the manufacturer and check our current stock.

We will need to know the height and depth of the upright frames you require, plus the length and load capacity of the horizontal beams. The measurement usually used to describe the beams is the clear entry, which is the space between the upright frames when beams are in place.

Orders are leaving us every day for delivery right across the UK mainland, so wherever you are we can get you the second hand storage equipment that you need. We currently have part filled vehicles scheduled to go to Leeds, Liverpool, Kent and Hereford in the next couple of weeks, so if you are nearby please send us your enquiry now and we will do our best to accommodate you.

new longspan racking

New longspan racking – hand loaded warehouse shelving


Our new longspan racking is one of the most popular products we sell, due to the price, quality and versatility of this hand loaded shelving system. The range of sizes of the upright frames and horizontal beams means that we can find a solution for your heavy duty shelving requirements, whether you need a couple of bays for a small storage area or a full high density picking area for your warehouse.

The dimensions of this shelving system can be tailored to suit the sizes of your stock and to fit in a specific space. The height of each shelving level can be adjusted in 50mm increments, meaning that no space should be wasted. This also gives the flexibility to put the first shelf at a higher level, allowing for pallet storage on the floor underneath.

The longspan shelving that we have in stock is made by AR Systems, but if you need a specific make to match your existing warehouse storage system, please let us know and we can provide you with a quote. Dexion, Link 51, Apex and PSS all have their own hand loaded shelving systems and unfortunately none of them are compatible with each other.

Our new longspan racking system is in stock now and can be delivered to any UK mainland address quickly. We have deliveries going to Doncaster, Kent, Halifax and Dundee in the next couple of week, so if you are close to these areas give us a call now and we will do our best to fit you in.
