Which Pallet Racks Are Right for Your Milwaukee Warehouse?

If your Milwaukee warehouse is in need of some new pallet racks, first you’ll need to decide which pallet racks are right for your space. Not all pallet racks are the same; in fact, the pallet racks that you choose can greatly influence the way that your warehouse works. Learn more about how each pallet rack works:

  • Selective pallet racks. The most common pallet racks used in Milwaukee warehouses. These racks have a single bay that can hold a pallet of cartons.
  • Drive through pallet racks. Allows your forklift to drive in and out of the racks. Each bay holds 6-8 pallets and is a great option for high capacity storage of single SKUs.
  • Pallet flow racks. These racks use a roller system that moves the pallets in back forward as pallets are removed. Carton flow racks are similar and used for boxes and cartons instead of pallets.

Which system you decide to use in your Milwaukee warehouse will depend a great deal on the kind of merchandise you are handling. Talk to DAK Equipment today and we’ll help you determine which pallet rack is the best option. We’ll look at how many SKUs you handle, the size and weight of the items you handle, and your volume and capacity. Then we’ll match you to the pallet racks that are perfect for your space!

You can reach out to our project managers by giving us a call or contacting us through our website. Our team can also help with the installation, inspection, and maintenance of your pallet racks, too! Just ask your project manager for more details.

How to Avoid Surprises When it Comes to Upgrading Your Pallet Racks

When you are planning an upgrade to your warehouse, you’ll want to avoid surprised. Any surprise can cause delays, which in turn cost you time and money. Carefully planning an upgrade to the pallet racks in your Milwaukee warehouse can help ensure that the process goes smoothly and you avoid costly delays. Here are a few tips to help you avoid those unexpected surprises:

  • Pad your timeline. You don’t want to build in too much time, but you also don’t want to be cutting it too close. Pad your timeline so you have some wiggle room in your deadline in case something does come up. If everything is smooth sailing, you’ll be done ahead of time!
  • Plan things carefully. Think through the process of upgrading your pallet racks. If this is your first time upgrading or installing new pallet racks, talk to fellow warehouse managers in the Milwaukee area who can give you insight into what will need to happen.
  • Work with a professional. When you work with a professional team on your pallet rack projects, you’ll be working with someone who has been there before and can help you get the help that you need to complete the project. They’ll know what warning signs to watch for, too, and help head off an issue before it starts.

Why Experience Matters When Buying Pallet Racks in Milwaukee

Not all pallet racks are made the same and not all of them are going to be right for your Milwaukee warehouse. When you are setting up a new warehouse or need to re-equip your current one, you need to find the pallet racks that are going to meet your needs as well as stay within your budget goals. One of the best ways to do this is to work with an experienced warehouse designer like DAK Equipment in Milwaukee.

Working with an experienced warehouse designer offers several advantages to your company:

  • More efficient warehouse design. Our team has been designing warehouses for years and we know how to set up a warehouse in the most efficient way possible. Because of our experience, we can quickly identify your warehouse’s strengths and weaknesses and use them to build the best design possible.
  • Cost saving potential. Our team works with hundreds of clients all over the country, setting up their warehouses and supplying them with the material handling and warehouse equipment that they need. We also help many of these companies get rid of their old equipment, meaning we often have second-hand pallet racks that could be the perfect fit for your Milwaukee warehouse. That could mean a huge savings to your business.
  • On-going support. Setting up a warehouse isn’t a one-time happening. Your warehouse should evolve with your business and as your business’s needs change, the needs of your warehouse will, too. Our team can help you meet the challenges of your warehouse as time goes on with new solutions, system upgrades, and equipment that makes your warehouse run better than ever.
  • Help from beginning to end. An inexperienced team may not understand how to properly see your warehouse project through from start to finish. Our team knows the importance of planning, execution, and follow-up when it comes to your warehouse. We have teams that are ready to help you every step of the way.

Working with an inexperienced warehouse equipment and design company when purchasing pallet racks and other material handling supplies could actually end up costing you more time and money in the long run. These companies could suggest pallet racks that aren’t quite right for your business, making your employees work harder to get your orders out the door and slowing down the process inside your warehouse. That can lead to losing money on your bottom line. You’ll end up spending more time on your pallet racks, too, working to fix the issues and replace your equipment.

Instead of risking your time and money, talk to the DAK Equipment & Engineering team about your pallet racks and material handling equipment. We’ll make sure that you get everything that you need at a price that fits your budget and a system that helps your team work faster than ever. You can contact our project managers for help by giving us a call or contacting us through our website. We’ll connect you with a project manager that works in your area and will help you see your project through from beginning to end.
