How to Keep Your Operations Safe When Utilizing Used Warehouse Shelving
Used warehouse shelving is a storage solution that can save your business money. However, it also comes with concerns that you may not necessarily have to deal with when you purchase brand-new products. It is best to assume that used shelving has experienced wear and tear. So to ensure your warehouse operations remain safe, it is best to follow a few simple steps.
Once you receive your used warehouse shelving, have an experienced technician inspect it for any serious signs of wear that may compromise its ability to securely store your inventory. If you do detect such wear, contact the seller and try to arrange an exchange. You’ll also want to routinely inspect your shelves once they are installed to ensure minor problems that you detected on the initial inspection don’t become more serious. Finally, all employees should be aware of manufacturer specifications so that they don’t exceed the weight limit of the shelving units.
