Used Pallet Racking vs New Pallet Racking

Whats the difference? You have a choice between ultimately paying less for your storage and pallet positions in your warehouse for used, right?

Believe it or not, new racking is falling at around the same price - for larger projects at least - than a lot of used pallet racking. The reason for this is that the UK now has a shortage of quality used pallet racking, or suitable pallet racking at least.

In our experience, it is always best to check the quality of the pallet racking that you intend to put up. There is really no point in purchasing lower priced product, just to save on the pennies. OK, so you can buy pallet racking pretty cheap on Ebay and others; but before you buy CHECK IT! You can often find rust, bent metal sections and mismatched pallet racking, which you cannot mix and match.

The exchange rate is permitting companies like Mecalux to sell pallet racking to dealers (like us) at a very good price. Not only this, but you can always be certain of the quality and support from the manufacturer.

Although used pallet racking can save you money, Aphex would recommend getting a price for both, just to see the price difference.

Aphex Warehouse Services can supply and install both new and used racking UK wide.
