used warehouse racking

Send us your used warehouse racking order now!


If you need a used warehouse racking order before Christmas, please get in touch with us quickly to ensure we can deliver in December. We have great stocks of all leading pallet racking manufacturers (Dexion, Link 51, Redirack, Apex and many more) in a wide range of sizes and duties. Lead time for most used racking orders is currently 7-10 working days, but we will do our best to achieve a deadline that you might have and we will always deliver at the earliest possible date. We cover the whole of the UK mainland for deliveries, or you would be welcome to collect your order from one of our warehouses if preferred.

New pallet racking and longspan shelving orders have a shorter lead time (usually 5-7 working days) and we have large quantities in stock. We also have all the industrial racking accessories that you might need- column guards, rack end barriers, pallet support bars, timber and wire mesh decking.

Many businesses use this time of year to plan for moves and expansions of their warehouse storage in the new year, if you are thinking about this we are happy to help you. Our experienced and knowledgeable team can offer you all the guidance you need to make the most of your space, whether it be industrial racking or hand loaded shelving. We can help you to design a layout or just confirm availability of used racking from a particular manufacturer.

We have pre-Christmas deliveries of used warehouse racking orders scheduled for Huddersfield, Cheltenham, York and Ipswich, so if you are close to these areas please send us your order and we will try to fit you in.

dexion shelving

Dexion shelving or Dexion racking- what do I need to order?


Dexion shelving is a name sometimes used for Dexion racking, or pallet racking to use the generic name. Buying it can be a complicated business if you aren’t familiar with the specific terms and the way it works, but we can help you to find the right warehouse storage solution for your business.

People will often ask for Dexion racking when actually they want warehouse racking from a completely different (and non-compatible) manufacturer. If you send us a photo of the racking you have, we can identify the racking system and then give you a quote for compatible materials. Apex, Link 51, Redirack and PSS are all popular industrial racking makers that we always have in stock and we can usually source less common systems such as Hilo, Sperrin and Stow.

The size of the frames and beams that you need will depend on the dimensions of the space you have available and size of the pallets that you are storing. UK pallets are 1200mm x 1000mm and Euro pallets are 1200mm x 800mm, but if you are storing non-standard pallets or non-palletised items we can adjust standard pallet racking sizes to accommodate your stock. Our helpful and knowledgeable team are happy to spend as much time as you need to get the right warehouse racking for your business.

If you are actually looking for Dexion shelving, we have huge stocks of timber and wire mesh decking to suit any pallet racking dimensions.

We can deliver to any UK mainland address (we have orders going to Liverpool, Falkirk, Newcastle and Bournemouth in the next week) and we also have fully qualified installation engineers available, no matter what size the job is.

Call us now on 0800 612 3210 or send us a brief message on our enquiry form and we will get back 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.

sell warehouse racking

If you need to sell warehouse racking, we can help


Attempting to sell warehouse 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 industrial racking. Leading manufacturers such as Dexion, Apex, Link 51, Redirack 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 SEIRS qualified 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 industrial racking from companies in Manchester, Gateshead, Leicester and Bath, so wherever you are in the UK, if you are looking to sell warehouse 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. 

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.
