PALLET RACK GUIDE

Our pallet rack guide is designed to help customers make a more informed decision about what type of racking system will best fit their needs. 

WHY BUY USED?

PRICE

  • The most obvious reason while shopping for pallet racking is to find the best prices, but it's also important to shop for value. Finding a trustworthy source that stocks quality used material can be difficult. The difference in price between new and used goods can be the difference between a complete project and an incomplete warehouse.

  • A 42" x 16' 3x3 teardrop upright can cost $242.56 new.

  • The same upright in used but nearly new condition can be purchased for $85 at Pallet Rack Surplus. Just imagine how much you can save on 10, 50, or more pieces.

AVAILABILITY 

  • Many new stock only pallet rack dealers put lead times of 1 - 2 weeks on all orders. Because they don't stock  material and have to have it shipped through a different company or the manufacturer it can take longer than you have to complete your project.

  • When you call Pallet Rack Surplus we can ship your order of used pallet racks the same or next day in most cases.

  • Our lead time is generally no longer than 2 -3 days on ALL orders.
