What questions should you ask when choosing racking?

Every business is different and has its own individual need and requirements. However, some storage companies might not necessarily recommend the best type of racking for your company. Instead, they might try to sell you the one that is most expensive or old stock that they are trying to offload quickly.

While racking systems can dramatically speed up your operations and free up the floor space to available to you, you need to be confident that you have the right kind. For example if you choose a pallet racking system that uses a push back system, you will benefit from being able to store away lots of pallets but you may struggle to gain access to individual pallets as quickly as other forms of racking, which could be a problem if you need quick access to fulfil orders.

To decide the right type of racking that will improve the efficiency of your businesses you should consider the following questions.

1)    How much floor space do you have available to you?

2)    How much overhead space / ceiling space do you have available to you?

3)    How often will you need to gain access to pallets?

4)    What quantity of pallets do you need to store?
