How to sell industrial racking


Attempting to sell industrial racking that you have may seem like an onerous and complicated job, but we can help you and give you a great price too. If you have moved into a warehouse which is full of pallet racking that you don’t need, or you are altering the way you store your stock and need to replace the racking you have, we want to hear from you.

We are currently in the market to buy medium to large parcels of quality used warehouse racking. Leading manufacturers such as Link 51, Dexion, Apex, Stow and PSS are always of interest to us but we will consider all makes of pallet racking if the quantities and condition are right.

To help us give you the best price for your racking, we would need to know the manufacturer, the quantities and sizes of upright frames (the height, depth and duty) and horizontal beams (clear entry length and load capacity) and whereabouts in the UK the racking is located. If there is anything stamped on the racking, that would also be useful to know. We need to see the condition of your pallet racking and so we will ask you to send us some clear, close up photos. This will also help us to confirm the manufacturer if you aren’t sure.

If you need us to dismantle and stack the racking for transportation, we can arrange this. Our highly experienced pallet racking engineers cover the whole of the UK mainland and work quickly and efficiently to clear your warehouse. We can also transport the racking to our warehouse, or you can book your own haulage if you prefer.

Pallet racking accessories such as timber or wire mesh decking, pallet support bars, column guards and anti-collapse mesh can also be included in the sale. Again, let us know the quantities and send us some photos to help us give you the best price.

We have recently bought warehouse racking from companies in Wakefield, Taunton, Chester and Sussex, so wherever you are in the UK, if you are looking to sell industrial racking we want to hear from you.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or use the enquiry form to send us some details and we will get back to you quickly. 

used dexion racking

Used Dexion racking- the blue and orange type


Used Dexion racking is something we are often asked for and it’s not always what the customer actually needs. In the same way that Hoover, Sellotape or Velcro are used to describe a wide variety of products from many different manufacturers, so Dexion is just one of twenty or more types of pallet racking currently available in the UK. 

Unfortunately, asking for the blue and orange racking doesn’t narrow it down a lot, as blue frames and orange beams are common to a number of warehouse racking systems and most can be supplied in a variety of colours on request.

If you need industrial racking to replace components or to add to your existing racking, then you need to be sure that you get compatible parts. Many pallet racking manufacturers stamp their name on the uprights (Dexion, Apex, Redirack, Link 51 etc), but if you can’t see it on your racking there are other ways to make sure you order the correct pallet racking system.

Take a look at the identify my racking page on our website to see many of the leading pallet racking manufacturers. The shape of the holes in the frames are usually a good way to confirm the manufacturer. If you still aren’t sure, please send us a clear, close up photo (like those on our identifying page) of your racking and we should be able to let you know what you have.

From there we can check stock for suitable materials and then send you a quote with a great delivered price. We cover the whole of the UK mainland, so whether you are in Wakefield, Hull, Oxford or Redditch we will do all we can to get you the racking you need, whether it be used Dexion racking or any other!

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us an enquiry form (you can include a photo of your pallet racking) and we will reply to you quickly.

Heavy duty shelving units for sale


Heavy duty shelving units are always a big seller for us, due to the strength and versatility of our range of longspan shelving. Whether you need a couple of bays for small parts storage, a few runs of hand loaded shelving for archive storage or a large picking area for your warehouse we can find the best solution which will maximise the space you have available.

Upright frames start at 2000mm high, but can be supplied as high as 5000mm, for which we can also supply warehouse safety steps. The depth of this shelving system ranges from 400mm to 1200mm and this means we can provide storage which best suits the size of the product or box, or which can be loaded from both sides. There are eight different beam sizes for our longspan shelving (950mm -2700mm), so we can work out the best possible configuration to fit the space you have allocated. Each shelving level can take  from 430kg – 1075kg (depending on the beam length) as a uniformly distributed load and the load capacity of each bay can be up to 7500kg.

Each shelving level is supplied with a chipboard deck, with the correct number of support bars to achieve the stated load capacity. If you would prefer a steel shelf we also have these in stock for 600mm, 800mm 900mm and 1200mm deep bays. This type of longspan shelving can also be supplied without a shelf for use as tyre racking.
