How DAK Equipment & Engineering Can Help You Win the Next Warehouse Equipment Contract

DAK Equipment & Engineering has been a dealer resource for over 20 years. We understand what it takes to win the contract on a big project and we make sure you have everything you need, including great prices on high-quality warehouse equipment. Our team is experienced in warehouse design, optimization, and planning, so we can help you make the best plan possible for a warehouse and provide the equipment to make that plan come to life.

Let Our Volume Discounts Work For You

One of the ways we work with dealers to win more projects is through our volume discounts. We offer generous price breaks so the more you purchase from us, the more you’ll end up saving. Take advantage of great volume discounts like these:

  • 2% discount for warehouse equipment orders over $5,000
  • 4% discount for warehouse equipment orders over $10,000
  • Spending more than $15,000 on your next order? Give us a call so we can work with you directly to provide the best possible pricing discount on your order.

If the materials that you order don’t have to ship from stock, then we can often provide even deeper discounts. You’ll be putting DAK Equipment’s buying power to work for you, and with decades of experience and relationships with all the major companies, you’ll be at an advantage when working with DAK on your warehousing needs.

We Can Help With Projects Big and Small

We’re not here to only serve big orders, either. We know that sometimes you need to place a smaller order but still want to save money when and where you can. That’s why we work with many of our customers to package small orders with bigger orders in order to help you save money! You’ll get the advantages of a volume discount without having to buy more than you really need.

Of course, if you have a large project coming up, we can handle that, too. Our team has experience working on many projects over the 7-figure mark, and we put our buying power to work to help lower the costs associated with the project. So not only can we fulfill your stock needs, we can meet the demands of all of your biggest clients and projects.

Keep Your Carton Flow Rack Organized with Bins and Boxes

We’ve written a lot about how great carton flow racks can be in the warehouse and distribution center environment! They can help reduce touches and are ideal for your pick line. And these racks really are great, but only if they stay organized. You don’t want to break open a pallet of products, transfer it to a carton flow rack, and end up with a jumble of items. Fortunately, DAK Equipment & Engineering has the carton flow rack bins and boxes that you need to keep everything organized and keep orders going out the door, error free.

The Issue with Disorganized Carton Flow Racks

When your carton flow racks are chaos, it can create a number of issues that can affect the profits of your warehouse:

  • Lost inventory. When racks are messy, you run a much higher risk of losing merchandise. Inventory counts will be off and you’ll end up writing off items that have been misplaced, driving up your costs. Chaotic shelves are more prone to theft, too, because employees assume that you won’t miss those items.
  • Slower pick times. Messy racks also slow down your pick and pack lines, because items can’t immediately be located and workers have to spend their time searching for them. This is an especially big issue for materials handling facilities that are dealing with smaller items.
  • Higher error rates. When your racks are a mess, it’s harder for teams to locate the correct items or even to know that the item they’ve grabbed is the right one. That leads to higher error rates, which means more unsatisfied customers, more returned orders, and ultimately, the risk of losing business.

How to Keep Your Carton Flow Racks Organized

Thankfully, you can count on DAK Equipment to have the perfect solution. Check out the carton flow rack bins and boxes available in our online store. We carry plastic and corrugated bins and boxes as well cabinets of bins so keep all of your smaller items perfectly sorted, labeled, and organized. Workers will be able to locate that needed part in seconds, and at a glance, they’ll be able to determine which items need to be restocked for the next shift. Organization is key when it comes to an efficient facility, and these bins and boxes are the perfect places to start. Other tips to keep you organized include:

  • Keep everything labeled. If something moves, make sure the label goes with it. This helps everyone see where items are and locate them as quickly as possible.
  • Automate wherever possible. Machines are less likely to make simple errors, so automating your picking process can help decrease your error rate and get orders out the door faster.
  • Perform random inventory checks. This helps keep things organized, discourages theft, and gives employees a chance to straighten shelves and locate lost items. Ditch the once-a-year model and check on inventory levels more often.

Should You Install Your Pallet Rack Yourself?

You’ve ordered your new pallet rack equipment from DAK Equipment & Engineering and it has finally arrived at your warehouse. So now what? Should you crack open your tool box and get to work setting them up yourself? Or should you call in the professionals? It can be a tough choice and one that is often dictated by time and money.

If you aren’t sure whether you should do the installation yourself or not, we have three very good reasons that you may be better off letting the DAK Equipment team set up that new equipment for you.

Why You Should Let a Pro Set Up Your Pallet Racking

Safety

Putting your new pallet rack together wrong could end up in disaster. You could end up with a collapsing pallet rack that crushes inventory or even hurts your employees, which is the last thing you want to do. Plus, putting together pallet racks is no easy job in itself. Our professional team knows how to safely install your pallet rack and ensure that it is set up correctly. They’ll go through all of the necessary steps to ensure that every nut and bolt of your pallet racking is assembled correctly.

Money

The attention to detail that our assembly teams offer can actually save you money. When you reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, you are lowering your operating costs and the costs associated with worker’s compensation claims. Installing pallet racking right the first time can extend its use, too, so you get more years out of your racking and don’t have to replace it sooner than absolutely necessary. Reducing costs is putting more money back into your bottom line.

Time

Setting up a pallet rack correction takes time, and that’s probably something you don’t have a lot of during the day. When you allow our team to do the installation work for you, you free yourself and your employees up to focus on building your business and serving your customers. Having professionals install your pallet racking can allow your team to focus on keeping the business running so there is no work slow down or stop while the new equipment is set up. Let our team take care of the heavy lifting so you can focus on building your business.

Convenience

While we’re at your location, we can perform a safety check on your existing pallet rack inventory. We’ll make sure your pallet racks are safe for your inventory and your employees, and help you repair or replace any unsafe pieces. We can also help you maximize your existing equipment with the right carton flow racks, bins, boxes, and help rearrange existing equipment so you get more out of every inch of your space. You can learn more about all of DAK Equipment & Engineering’s services when you speak with one of our project managers.
