DAK Equipment & Engineering has worked with thousands of businesses across the country on their material handling and warehouse equipment needs. When it comes to their industrial shelves, though, we’ve seen businesses make one major mistake over and over again. This mistake can cost their business money, customers, and even put their employees at serious risk. So what is it?
Not fixing their industrial shelving after it’s been damaged.
It’s easy to write off damage to an industrial shelf or pallet rack as minor. After all, paying for the cost of the repairs can add up and you need to pay close attention to every dollar spent because it affects your bottom line. That’s understandable; the problem is that by not fixing your industrial shelves as soon as possible, you are leaving them vulnerable to collapse. That can injure your employees, damage your merchandise, and bring your warehouse to a grinding halt for days. It’s a very big deal, and the potential issues far outweigh the costs of repair.
The repairs to most industrial shelves are nominal and shouldn’t take very long. Don’t write any damage off as insignificant until an experienced engineer has examined the structure. They’ll be able to tell you whether or not you should fix or replace the shelf. In either case, the DAK Equipment & Engineering team can help.
We offer inspection services on industrial shelves, pallet racks, warehouses and more. We can help identify problem areas and get them fixed or replaced with our great selection of industrial shelving. Give us a call today to arrange for an appointment with one of our engineers!
