How To Choose Used Pallet Racks

Choosing a Pallet Rack that Fits Your Needs

used pallet racksWhether new or used, purchasing a pallet rack at Yankee Supply can mean huge savings! Yankee Supply has a large inventory of both new and used pallet racks in a variety of different styles and sizes.

The key to purchasing the right pallet rack is first to determine which style will ultimately serve all of your needs.  What are you looking to store? Is there a particular size that you have in mind? How many pounds will each level be holding?

For instance, the Bulk Storage style is used for storing large, bulky items that are loaded by hand only. Each level will hold up to 1,000 pounds.

For heavy duty racking, the Selective style is ideal for handling large, palletized loads of up to 10,000 pounds per level. It is handled only by power equipment. If you’re looking for a pallet rack that will handle denser loads, try the Drive-In style. They are great at handling compressed, palletized loads. However, Drive-In style pallet racks have minimal access and can only be loaded by machine.

Storing long, flat items is made easy with the Cantilever style pallet racks. Sheets, bars or tubes of up to 2,000 pounds can easily be loaded by hand or machine.
