How to choose the right pallet racking

Business Featured

Pallet racking can help your business to achieve the success it deserves by increasing storage space and keeping stock organised. Getting it wrong, however, could create all kinds of issues with your warehouse operation.

To help you make the right choice, here are 5 things you should do:

  1. Set a budget

As with most purchases,  when buying pallet racking you need to allocate yourself a budget to prevent you from spending more than you can afford. Although it’s easy to be tempted by cheap prices, it’s worth doing your research and weighing up the pros and cons of the system to make sure it will meet your requirements and last for many years to come.

  1. Consider storage needs

Think about the products you need to store in your warehouse. A pallet racking system will hold palletised goods only, a cantilever system suits long, slim items, whilst a carpet rack is used for different carpet lengths and roll diameters.

  1. Plan ahead

If you’re looking to expand it’s worth thinking about how much storage space you’ll need in 1-2 years. A modular pallet racking system could be the perfect solution as it allows you to add to the unit and respond quickly to the demands being placed on your business.

  1. Maximise space

Warehouse pallet racking allows you to use the height of the building to your advantage – freeing up valuable floor space and making it easier for you to organise and store stock.

  1. Installation

Depending on the warehouse pallet racking system you select, some are quick and easy to assemble whilst others require specialist equipment. Pallet racking suppliers, such as WP Group, are recognised specialists in the installation of warehouse racking solutions.
