buy used pallet racking

Buy used pallet racking, industrial shelving and much more


If you need to buy used pallet racking, industrial shelving or any other type of warehouse storage equipment, we can help you to get exactly what you need. Customers find us in a number of different ways, and what they are looking for can vary widely, but we give every customer the best service we can, no matter what they are looking for. These are a few examples of recent enquiries:

  1. A customer in Newport wanted some used pallet racking for his warehouse. A Google search led him to our website where he selected the sizes and quantities he needed and placed an order online. When his order came through to us, the configuration didn’t look right, so we gave him a call and soon established that both the sizes and quantities weren’t right for what he needed. We corrected the order, supplied some used Redirack and the customer was very happy with the racking that he received.
  2. We had a call from a customer after another business on his industrial estate in Leeds recommended us to him. He just needed a short run of industrial racking to store both palletised and hand loaded materials for his business. We had used Dexion racking in suitable sizes, with timber decking for the hand loaded elements. We supplied and installed the racking quickly, helping to create extra space in the customer’s warehouse in time for his upcoming peak trading period.
  3. We received an enquiry form through our website, from a company in Watford. They had attached a plan of the warehouse racking that they were looking for and asked for a price for both new and used pallet racking. We provided them with quotes for all materials (10 runs of 6 bays of racking, each with 4 beam levels) in used Link 51 racking and new AR racking, along with column guards and pallet support bars for all bays. They were very happy with the service they received from us and decided to buy used pallet racking, which arrived just 7 working days from confirmation of the order and has now been installed.
  4. After an online search for longspan shelving, a small business in Edinburgh found our number and gave us a call. They needed runs of heavy duty shelving to go round 3 sides of a new warehouse they  were moving to. Our longspan comes in so many size options that it was easy for us to find a solution that made maximum use of the storage space they had available. Some of the items they intended to store were heavy, but our longspan can take in excess of 500kg per shelf in almost all beam sizes and so this was easily solved. We were also able to supply warehouse safety steps for them so that they could make full use of the 3500mm height available.

So, as you can see, wherever you are in the UK and whatever your warehouse storage requirements are, we can help you to find the best solution at a great price. Call us on 0800 612 3210, send us an enquiry form or order online now!

Social Distancing

Social Distancing and Employee Protection


Social distancing and employee safety are essential considerations as many companies begin to restart after the Covid-19 lockdown. We have added a range of products to our catalogue to help you ensure that your team can operate in a way that meets with the latest government guidelines.

The social distance marker and floor graphic marker will help everyone to keep a 2 metre distance at all times. They are highly visible and will adhere to any dry, clean, flat surface. If you have uneven or outdoor areas then the social distance floor stencil kit  can be used to clearly mark the 2 metre distance in queuing areas as well as in the workplace. 

Our freestanding perspex full screen is the ideal solution for the segregation of workstations to protect your employees. We have a range of sizes available for quick dispatch and can customise if required in order to meet your specific requirements.

The industrial quality protective curtain is an ideal solution for doorways and to separate rooms, areas or shelving and pallet racking units. This high quality yet cost-effective flexible curtain can also be useful in practicing social distancing between customers and between employees in the workplace. Installed incredibly simply with either industrial strength magnetic strip or pre-drilled holes, this also aids quick removal and cleaning. The curtain can be cut to size on site.

We also have face protection shields and a wide range of barriers, posts and cages to help you maintain social distancing and keep all of your staff and customers safe. If you can’t see what you are looking for, or you would like to discuss your requirements, please call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send an enquiry form.

pallet racking protection

Pallet racking protection


Pallet racking protection is a vital part of any warehouse storage system. Damage to your warehouse racking can be both dangerous and costly, but with some simple measures in place you can prevent many of these accidents from happening.

Column guards are a relatively cheap way to prevent forklift damage to your pallet racking uprights. Ours are bolted to the floor in front of each leg, creating a “crumple zone” in front of the racking. We have large quantities in stock and and they are ready for dispatch in just 2-3 days.

Rack end barriers perform a similar job at the ends of your runs of industrial racking and are available in sizes to suit standard single and back to back runs. All our guards and barriers are supplied with fixing bolts to secure them to a concrete floor.

If any of your warehouse racking backs on to pedestrian areas then anti-collapse mesh should be in place to prevent items falling from the racking and causing injuries. We can supply mesh which can be fixed to pallet racking from all leading manufacturers (Dexion, Link 51, Redirack, Apex, PSS, Polypal, Mecalux etc), usually in 7-10 working days.

Whatever you pallet racking protection requirements are we can help you, no matter where you are in the UK. Our main warehouse is between Leeds and Hull but we have deliveries going across the country every day. Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to discuss your options, or send us an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

Pallet Racking System

How to identify your pallet racking system


Each and every pallet racking system is different and almost all are incompatible with each other, so it is really important to get the right manufacturer if you want to add to or replace parts in your warehouse racking.

We have an Identify My Racking page on the website which shows clearly the design of many leading pallet racking manufacturers. The shape of the holes in the upright frames and horizontal beams are the easiest way to check the type of racking you have. If you can’t see anything that matches your warehouse racking, or you aren’t sure, please send us a clear photo (similar to the ones on the Identify My Racking page) and we will do our best to let you know the make of pallet racking that you have.

We always have leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS in stock and in a wide range of sizes and duties. Currently we also have good stocks of Stow, Polypal and Jungheinrich, but whatever industrial racking you need please send us the details and we can usually supply suitable materials.

We deliver to all UK mainland addresses, so wherever you are we can help you find the right components for your pallet racking system. We regularly have artics going from our main warehouse near Leeds to London, Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow, and we will always try to accommodate any last minute orders where possible.
