Choose the Chicago Mezzanine Deck That’s Right for You

Not all mezzanines are alike! If you’ve decided that a Chicago mezzanine deck is right for your warehouse, give the DAK Equipment team a call. We can help you choose the system that’s right for you. Two of the most popular options for mezzanine decks include:

  • Shelving-supported mezzanines. These decks have shelving units underneath holding them up. Great when you need extra floor space without losing your storage capacity.
  • Structural mezzanines. These systems have their own support and are the most popular mezzanine choice. The space under the mezzanine is open, so it offers plenty of flexibility when deciding how to utilize it best.

Which type you choose will depend on factors such as what you want to use the mezzanine for, the layout of your warehouse, and the size and weight of the products you are working with in your Chicago warehouse. Our DAK Equipment project manager can help you determine which system is right for you, then make sure you are getting the proper size and set up for your space. Our installation team can even come and install the mezzanine deck for you!

This is a great way to bring more space to your warehouse without an expensive addition. If you have questions about our Chicago mezzanine decking or would like to learn more about the space-saving options available for your warehouse, get in touch with us today. Call the DAK Equipment team or contact us through our website and we’ll get you the information you need on top-quality Chicago mezzanine decks.

How Our Milwaukee Modular Offices Can Help Improve Communication

One of the biggest benefits of installing one of our Milwaukee modular offices in your warehouse is the ability to work closely with your team. All too often managers are secluded in an office space in the back of a warehouse, or worse, on another floor. This doesn’t give them access to their team, nor does it give their team access to their managers when they have questions or concerns. It can lead to a breakdown in communication among your staff. The results of a lack of communication can lead to a decrease in productivity as workers feel less accountable for their actions when the boss is “out of sight and out of mind.”

By putting one of our Milwaukee modular offices in your warehouse, you can put in the middle of the action and available to your team at any time. You’ll be able to keep an eye on warehouse workflow, identifying issues and correcting them as needed. A modular office gives you advantages over simply placing your desk out in the middle of the floor, too, as you’ll have privacy when necessary and your own space to get your work done.

DAK Equipment can design and install a modular office that’s perfect for your warehouse. Whether you need space for just one office or need to house several people in one place, we have the modular office that’s right for you. We offer high-quality modular offices that won’t drain your warehouse’s budget, too. Give us a call today and let’s talk about what you need for the new modular office in your Milwaukee warehouse.

When to Buy Used Warehouse Equipment

New Vs Used

You probably expect me to bad-mouth used equipment in this post because DAK makes more money from selling new. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.

If there is used equipment available that meets your needs and is in good condition, I’ll happily sell it to you. After all, if my goals don’t line up with yours, I won’t get your business at all.

That said, sometimes used equipment just isn’t the right solution. Today I want to help you understand how to choose the best solution at the best price.
