Three of Our Most Popular Services in Chicago in 2015

DAK Equipment and Engineering offers a variety of services and products that our Chicago customers rely on. From purchasing pallet rack shelving to warehouse design and disassembly services, DAK can help you with all of it. During the years that we’ve been in business, we’ve worked with hundreds of businesses like yours to help them set up a warehouse that does more than meet their needs; it helps them build their bottom line and increase their efficiency. From all of our services, these are three of the most popular that our Chicago customers loved in 2015:

  • Warehouse design. Setting up a warehouse isn’t just as easy as building some shelves and calling it good. A great warehouse requires a lot of planning to ensure that every square inch of your space is being used properly. From the kind of pallet rack shelving that you use to the utilization of conveyors and mezzanine levels. Our warehouse designers will look at your space and existing equipment and offer solutions that maximize the efficiency of your space. We’ll make suggestions for equipment purchases that can boost your speed and help your team work faster.
  • Installation services. When it comes to setting up your warehouse, your equipment and infrastructure needs to be set up right. It’s a matter of safety for your products and your team, and pallet rack shelving and conveyor belts that haven’t been set up correctly will end up costing you time and money in the future. That’s why more warehouse managers are relying on our installation teams to do the work for you. We have professional installation teams ready to quickly, efficiently and safely set up all of your warehouse gear. You’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your warehouse has been set up correctly and is ready for use.
  • Inspection services. Warehouses are required to have regular inspections by qualified individuals. DAK Equipment & Engineering can help you with your inspection needs! We offer preventative maintenance inspections which can identify minor problems before they turn into major (and expensive) issues. We also offer rack and pick module inspections to help you identify opportunities to improve your warehouse. Our teams are knowledgeable and professional, and you’ll appreciate their efforts to help you improve your warehouse and keep your teams safe.

DAK Equipment has many other great services available to Chicago-area warehouses, including disassembly services for warehouses on the move and strategic planning for multiple distribution centers. All you have to do is give us a call; tell your project manager what challenges your warehouse is facing and we’ll help you find the solutions that are right for you. Of course, we still offer a huge selection of warehouse products available for sale through our website as well. With great prices and high-quality products, you can rely on DAK Equipment to deliver the very best. You can get in touch with our teams by giving us a call or contacting us through our website for the services that you need. We’re looking forward to working with you in the coming year!

Make Time to Review Forklift Safety Around Your Chicago Pallet Rack Shelving

Reviewing forklift safety should be a part of the regular training schedule in your Chicago warehouse. If it’s been awhile since you’ve gone over forklift safety with your team, you’ll want to get it on the schedule soon. The busy holiday season will likely have your warehouse team moving quickly, and you don’t want to sacrifice safety for speed. By the end of the season, both your team and your Chicago pallet rack shelving will thank you.

Forklifts are a vital part of your warehouse, but they can be a major source of cost and damage if not used properly. Remind your team to use best practices when driving and working around the forklift, and treat all machinery with respect. Also, make them aware of the importance of notifying management about any accidents in the forklift, no matter how minor they might seem. This will allow your management team to address any damage done to your Chicago pallet rack shelving as well as ensure proper workmen’s compensation rules are followed.

Chances are accidents will happen this holiday season as you are in a rush to get your products out the door. Going over forklift and other safety precautions multiple times during the season can help lower the frequency of the accidents as well as the severity. If you need help with pallet rack shelving inspections or replacements during your busy holidays, just give the DAK Equipment team a call. We’ll get you set up with everything you need to keep products flowing safety in and out of your Chicago warehouse.
