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.

But there is a reason we’ve been in this business for more than 20 years and why so many of our customers come back to us time and time again for all of their warehouse consulting and equipment needs.

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.

Check In With Our Team Often on Wholesale Pallet Rack Closeouts

Investing in the right warehouse equipment is one of the most important things that you’ll do for your warehouse or distribution center. That’s because your warehouse equipment plays an incredibly important role in how efficiently your warehouse operates. But investing too much in your warehouse equipment can drain your bottom line and set your company back years in terms of showing a healthy profit. So when you need to find the right warehouse equipment at a great price, you need to find a trusted distributor like DAK Equipment & Engineering.

Looking for Great Prices on Used Warehouse Equipment?

When you are searching for great used warehouse equipment, start with DAK. We often take in previously-owned pallet rack and other equipment from companies across the Midwest. Often these pallet rack systems are still in perfectly good shape; they may not have met the needs of the company any longer and they needed to upgrade. We’ll take their old systems, scrap out pieces that may no longer be safe, and offer them to other customers who are in the market for affordable wholesale pallet rack systems. There are a number of advantages to buying your used equipment from DAK:

  • We inspect everything before we sell it. You can rest assured that while you might be getting a great deal, you aren’t sacrificing the safety of your team. We’ll take out any pieces of equipment that aren’t safe for use and scrap them, only selling you the good stuff.
  • We can help you set up your new equipment. We have installation crews that can help with the set up of your new equipment as well as the tear down of your old stuff and even inspections to ensure safety and quality.
  • We understand the warehousing industry. You will be working with warehousing experts who can help ensure you are getting exactly what you need and maximizing every penny in your budget. We have experience in the industry so we can better understand and meet your needs.

Are You Getting the Best System for the Best Price?

That means you could have more options than you think when it comes to buying from DAK Equipment! Make sure you contact a member of our team before you make a purchase to ensure you are getting the best system for the best price. We can help you determine if one of our used wholesale pallet rack systems is right for you, or if you’d be better off going with a newer system. You can be assured that we’re getting you the right system for the right price when you work with one of our project managers. We can even work with you to develop an optimized warehouse layout that shows you where every piece of warehouse equipment should be placed to get the most out of your space and your equipment investment.

If you are a company who is looking at upgrading your current pallet racks, let us know. We’re always interested in your old systems! We can even send our teams to dismantle and remove the system, and if it’s no longer safe, we’ll scrap it for you. If you are looking for a new system, get in touch with us.
