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 staked 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.

Which used racking frames do I need?


There are a huge range of used racking frames available and finding the appropriate materials for your specific requirements isn’t always straightforward. Our team are always happy to offer you as much help and advice as you need, but here is some guidance which might help you find what you are looking for.

A pallet racking frame is made up of two upright legs, joined together with horizontal and diagonal bracing (in a zig zag pattern) and with footplates attached. To create a single bay of warehouse racking you would need two frames and at least four beams, the horizontal bars that your pallets would sit on.

There are at least 20 different manufacturers of industrial racking and almost none of their components are compatible with each other. So, if you don’t know whether you have Dexion, Link 51, Apex, Redirack or any other make, the first place to look would be our “identify my racking” page, where you can find photos of many leading brands of pallet racking. If this doesn’t help, send us some clear close up photos of your racking and we can usually tell you what you have.

The depth measurement is very important in finding the frames that you need, this is taken from outside edge to outside edge of the uprights. 900mm and 1100mm are by far the most common sizes, but others such as 1050mm, 700mm and 1200mm are sometimes used. Older pallet racking, particularly Dexion Speedlock may also have measurements in imperial sizes, such as 3ft (914mm) and 3ft 6in (1067mm). If you are looking to add bays to your existing racking then the frames you buy must be exactly the same depth.

We can usually supply frames in heights from 2000mm to 10000mm and possibly even higher. Standard heights are in 500mm increments but if you need a specific height please let us know and we can cut the frames down accordingly. Tall frames are often made up of two piece of upright spliced together, with a heavier duty section at the bottom.

The load capacity of the frames is determined by the duty of the frame and the height of the first beam level. The duty of the frame is often stamped on the upright, it could be a letter (M- medium, SD- standard duty, H- heavy duty etc) or a number (Apex frames will be UK8, UK12, UK16 or UK20). Please let us know if you need to match existing frames, or if you know the maximum weight you will be putting in each bay.

We can supply individual upright legs, often to replace one which has been damaged. If this is the case, we need to know the duty of your existing frames so that we can supply a compatible replacement. Bracing can also be bought separately if you need to replace a bent piece.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 to place an order or to discuss your options. Alternatively you can send us the details of what you are looking for on the enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.

 

Storage racking

Storage racking tips to help you get exactly what you need


Customers often come to us asking for storage racking for their business but without knowing 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 Essex, Salford, Sunderland and Exeter, 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 to discuss your options. Alternatively, you can send us your details on an enquiry form and we will reply to you quickly.
