who buys used pallet racking

Who buys used pallet racking?


The simple answer to “who buys used pallet racking?” is “we do!”, so if you have a medium to large quantity of warehouse racking in good condition then we are waiting for your call. We are always interested in good quality industrial racking from leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack, PSS or Mecalux but we will consider all offers if the quantity and condition is right.

The first thing we will always ask is how many upright frames and horizontal beams do you have, and what sizes are they. If you can also send us some clear close up photos of the racking, so that we can see the condition and, if necessary, identify the manufacturer we should then be able to give you an indication of the value of your used racking. If you are working to a deadline, let us know when that is and we will do all we can to work within the timescale you give us. Finally, we would want to know if you need us to dismantle the warehouse storage equipment and arrange transport or will you deliver it to us.

We can also include timber decking, pallet support bars, column guards and anti-collapse mesh in any purchases, so if you have these please include them in the list of quantities and sizes.

We have recently bought used racking from warehouse clearances in Canterbury, York, Swansea and Bolton, so wherever you are in the UK we want to hear from you.

Please call us now on 0800 612 3210 if you are trying to find out who buys used pallet racking, or send us as many details as you can on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly. During office hours you can also use the live chat to talk to a member of the team.

used racking for sale

Do you have used racking for sale?


If you have used racking for sale then we want to hear from you. We are always in the market for medium to large parcels of quality used pallet racking or longspan shelving and we can arrange to take it down and transport it if required.

If you have a warehouse full of industrial racking that you don’t need then the thought of getting rid of it can seem like a daunting one, but we will happily give you as much guidance as you need. The value of used warehouse racking is based on a number of criteria:

  • The condition of the racking. We will need you to send us a few clear, close up photos so that we can see what your used racking looks like.
  • The manufacturer of the racking. Popular makes such as Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack and PSS are are always of interest, but we will listen to all offers if the quality and quantity are right. If you aren’t sure what type of pallet racking you have, we will be able to identify it from the photos.
  • The size, quantity and duty of the upright frames. We need to know the height and depth of the frames (in millimetres), how many of the you have, and the duty of the frames. The duty might be stamped on the frames- M (medium), S (standard), H (heavy duty) or E (extra heavy duty) are examples of what you might expect to find.
  • The size, quantity and load capacity of the horizontal beams. The size of the beams is the clear entry measurement- the space between the upright frames when beams are in place. The load capacity might be on load notices at the end of each run, or otherwise if you can tell us the height of the front face of the beam, and whether the beam is a box or open section, we may be able to calculate how much weight they can take.

If you need us to drop the racking and stack it for transportation, we have SEIRS qualified engineers who can do this for you. The cost of this service would be deducted from the value of your racking. We can also arrange transport from any UK mainland address if required. We have recently bought parcels of used pallet racking from customers in Keighley, Dumfries, Swansea, Barnsley and Croydon. If you would prefer to deliver the racking to us, you would be welcome to do so, provided it is stacked and banded to our specifications.

If you have used racking for sale, call us now on 0800 612 3210. If preferred, you can use the enquiry form to send us as many details as you can and we will reply to you quickly.

second hand racking

Second hand racking- what else do I need?


If you are looking to buy second hand racking, you would start by working out how many upright frames and horizontal beams you need, and what size they need to be. But once you have a layout planned, you can broaden your search to other components that will ensure that your warehouse racking is safe, secure and fit for purpose.

All of our pallet racking beams are supplied with 2 beam locks as standard, because they are important in helping to prevent the beams from being accidentally dislodged by your forklift. If you have beams without locking pins, we can supply as many as you need for all leading manufacturers.

Forklift trucks can also cause expensive and potentially dangerous damage to your racking uprights, so it is important to protect them. Column guards and rack end barriers are a relatively inexpensive way to avoid damage and are easy to install. All of our barriers and guards are supplied with fixing bolts.

If your pallets need extra support, or you want to use your second hand racking for hand loaded storage, we have large stocks of timber and wire mesh decking in stock to suit standard pallet racking sizes. Pallet support bars can also be used to help prevent your pallets from sagging.

All of our pallet racking accessories are compatible with leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Apex, Redirack, Link 51 etc. If you aren’t sure what you need, or would like to discuss your options, our friendly and experienced team are here to help you. Click on the live chat option during office hours for instant answers, or give us a call on 0800 612 3210. Alternatively, you can send us an enquiry form and we will respond to you quickly.

Our deliveries cover the whole of the UK mainland, so whether you are in Aberdeen, Penzance, Kings Lynn or Swansea, we can get you what you need, quickly and at a great price.
