3 steps to selling your used
pallet racking to maximise its value

Selling used pallet racking can be a great way to remove storage systems you no longer need and as we all know recycling is good for the environment.

In this article, we will discuss how to safely and effectively sell used pallet racking and optimise its value. We will cover topics such as assessing the condition of the pallet racking. With the right approach, you can be sure that your used pallet racking will be sold quickly and at a good price.


Step 1 – Know about the history of your racking to maximise the value

Providing information about the pallet racking you are selling is essential to maximise its value as it can then be confirmed that the racking conforms to safety standards. Providing documentation relating to your racking is also helpful, as again, this confirms that it the racking is safe to be reused. Being aware of any repairs done to the storage system, as well as the original installation of the racking is essential here. Again, any further documentation relating to this would be helpful for you in the selling process.


Step 2 – Be prepared for a racking inspection

Once you have confirmed that your used pallet racking is going to be sold, your pallet racking may need to be inspected which could include a visit to your premise or you could be asked to supply photos. After this, a price will be drawn on what the buyer thinks is a suitable price. If you require a racking inspection, you can arrange this with us.


Step 3 – Removal of racking

It maybe more cost effective to organise the removal of your racking with the company you choose to sell to, if they offer a dismantling service. This will ensure the racking is removed by skilled installers who can carefully break down your warehouse’s pallet rack shelving, along with additional accessories, and get it out of your way in a timely and safe manner.

Choosing to sell to a company that specialises in buying used pallet racking also means that, along with the environmental benefits, means that it is almost certain that you will be getting a better price than if you opted for scrapping.
