Keep Your Costs Low with the Right Pallet Shelves

For many companies, one of the biggest expenses they face is their inventory overhead. Keeping the cost of their inventory low is vital to having a healthy bottom line. Your supply chain department will do what they can to ensure you are getting quality products at the lowest prices, as well as helping get the inventory to your warehouse for the least amount possible. However, once it’s in your warehouse, what are you doing to keep your costs low? The right pallet shelves can actually help your Chicago-area business save on inventory costs.

When companies try to purchase cheap pallet shelves or don’t use enough of them, they’ll end up costing themselves more in the long run. Good pallet shelves are doing more than storage your product; they are keeping it safe. Keeping pallet shelves in good repair and using them with best practices keeps your inventory safe, too. Items will be protected on the pallet itself, and study steel beams will keep product safe from accidental falls or human error. You’ll have less waste from damaged products, which can quickly drive up costs.

If you’ve been seeing a lot of damaged products in your warehouse recently, it may be time to call DAK Equipment and ask about our pallet shelves in Chicago. Investment in our affordable shelving can help drive down your costs and increase your bottom line. Contact us today at 855-863-0340 and let’s talk about what the right pallet shelves could do for your space. Our project managers are ready to show you how a little investment can create a big payoff!

Could Pallet Racks Create More Customer Purchases?

If you use pallet racks in your warehouse store, you need to look at those racks from the perspective of your customer. Your racks serve a utilitarian purpose in your store–to manage inventory until it is purchased by a customer–but they serve another purpose, too. To your customers, you pallet racks can be an indication of the quality of your store.

Customers are paying attention to these minor details, even if they aren’t doing it consciously. They are evaluating your business from the time they enter your parking lot or approach it on the street. Details matter and small details like the state of your pallet racks add up to a favorable–or unfavorable–first impression. If they like what they see, they are more likely to spend more time and more money inside of your store.

So what are your customers seeing? Take a minute to take a step outside and enter your store. Are your pallet racks well-stocked? Do they look clean? Are they damage-free? It can be hard to see beyond the everyday and view your store from a customer’s perspective, but it’s worth the effort. You may see some things that can easily be remedied to give a more favorite first impression.

If you see problem areas or areas that are ripe for improvement, give DAK Equipment a call. We’ll help you replace old or worn out pallet racks with something that will visually please your customers. Give our project managers a call at 855-863-0340 and let’s talk about how the right pallet racks can improve your store, bring in more customers, and increase your bottom line.
