Sell Safer Tires With Tire Racks

WHeavyDutyTruckTires Racks

Many businesses need to store tires.  What some of them don't understand is HOW.  Tires, as a soft, malleable object, need to be stored in a way that they won't warp and deform, creating wobbly, dangerous tires that can cause blowouts and accidents.  Wobbly tires can mess up the alignment on a vehicle, and on an 18-wheeler, this is a huge problem costing thousands of dollars to fix.

Some companies have found themselves with unusable stock, simply because they have not stored their tires properly on a professional, custom built tire rack.  These tire racks are easily the safest way to safely store your tires, as they hold the tires on perforated decking that helps distribute the weight of the tire throughout, keeping it from warping.  

Our center post Tier-Rack® tire stacking frame is a popular alternative for those who appreciate the ease of loading and unloading tires when there are no obstructions on the corners of the stack racks. These tire racks are also the least expensive storage solution for tires  available. The frames easily attach to your existing warehouse pallets and will hold loads of 2,000 pounds per pallet when the racks are stacked five high.

Tier-Rack Corp of St. Louis, MO has been providing custom designed and manufactured tire racks since 1955.  Tier-Rack has created hundreds of customized racks for every shape and size of tire, using wire mesh and perforated decking to support the tires while keeping them from warping during long periods of non-use.  Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality earthmoving machine tire racks at a very affordable price. We buy steel tubing directly from the tube mills in truckload quantities. Then our talented and efficient teams in our low overhead production facilities transform the steel tubing into high quality portable racks that have been designed to meet your needs. Give us a chance to prove to you that nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 tire racks or 10 tire racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice.  Visit www.tier-rack.com today!

Tire Racks make For Safer Warehouses

LacingTires

If you're reading this, you probably sell tires.  So you know that they are dificult to manage in a warehouse.  You're basically corralling something meant to travel, after all.  That's why a specialized tire rack is the only way to go when you are deciding on how to store your racks.  

Using a tire rack that is designed specifically for that purpose can eliminate a lot of the hazards that many tire sellers face.  They are built from the ground up with tires in mind, and will keep tires both safely stored and correctly held for maximum effectiveness.  Tire racks hold tires with perforated decking in place and hold the tires in a position that will keep the tires in good shape for the duration.  You'll be able to sell tires that are functional and safe, while keeping your warehouse workers safe from rolling tires.

When most companies decide on the layout of their tire racks for their warehouse, they take several factors into consideration.  Ease of use, maneuverability, and equipment cost are all important matters to consider.  However, the most important is safety.  Knowing that your rack is going to hold up to the stress of everyday use, holding products long-term, and safely distributing the product are paramount to having the safest warehouse for your tire products.

This is where Tier-Rack Corporation is your friend.  Their tire racks are built to last, with only the highest quality metals and welds, to ensure the maximum allowable safety.  They are built to specifications that a company can set their watch by, and as long as the specs are observed, the rack will continue to give the highest possible level of safety and stability for the warehouse.

They also are built for ease of accessibility.  This means that they are designed to hold tires, and if used for this purpose, will allow your warehouse staff to safely and quickly get the products down and onto your customers' cars.  This makes a huge bottom-line difference and can make the difference between profitability and loss for a business.  To find out how Tier-Rack can make your company's warehouse safer and more profitable, visit www.tier-rack.com and call 800-325-7869 to order!

Used Stack Racks Utilize Your Warehouse Space

Orangeracks4high

Shelves and shelf space, and the placement of shelves and containers ultimately affect the ability for you to utilize any space available.  The configuration and traffic patterns of your warehouse need to be optimized to ensure that your space is efficient.

This is where stackable racks from Tier-Rack can make your warehouse both more efficient and safer.  You can stack the racks together, and easily move them throughout your space, maximizing your space.

 After you get your stackable racks, here are some other ways to maximize your space:

Be methodical when stacking items such that they are always in the same order, in a way that compliments each other. Doing this creates an order that allows easy retrieval, encouraging employees to more easily find items and to find them using the same, repeatable process, which creates efficiency over time. And, you are less likely to lose items and less likely to have spoilage of items that have a shorter shelf life while optimizing space available, which will create more shelf space for inventory storage.

Keep the space clean in your warehouse such that it is free of any unneeded items. If you organize your building in a way that maximises the given area, you can greatly improve the flow and efficiency of movement. More areas can be used when items are set in an area specifically designated for those items. The position and arrangement of the items greatly affects the available space given to you. A metric that is often used to measure this efficiency is “inventory turns.” The greater the number, the more times you are replenishing your inventory and making greater efficiency of your inventory space.

Think carefully and highly value every space used for any warehouse storage needs. If an item isn’t really needed to be stored locally, remove it. Only using space you truly need significantly improves the number of items you can fit in any given building, increasing efficiency and avoiding unnecessary expansion. Doing this can also help lower the cost for the maintenance and security of the facility you maintain.

 Knowing your space and using it properly is the key to safe, efficient warehouse usage. Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality stack racks at a very affordable price. We buy steel tubing directly from the tube mills in truckload quantities. Then our talented and efficient teams in our low overhead production facilities transform the steel tubing into high quality portable racks that have been designed to meet your needs. Give us a chance to prove to you that nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 racks or 10 racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice.

Your Warehouse Needs the Stack Rack You Ordered

Stacker1

When making a major purchase, you want to trust the supplier you buy from. If you buy a TV, you want to know you will get the Sony you paid for, not a box with a raccoon in it.  Creating this trust in business to business sales is a little different. Tier-Rack Corporation, for example, has created this trust in their Stack Rack system by being accountable for their products.

Tier-Rack sales people are the first people you talk to when you call to order, and the last people you speak to after you place your order.  For example, when you purchase a tire rack from Tier-Rack, the sales team takes your order, the in house engineering team designs your rack, the United States-based manufacturing warehouse fabricates the rack, and it's delivered to you.  Tier-Rack's sales team also follows with you every step - including helping to deal with inspectors and regulators if necessary.

However, not every company follows these guidelines.  There are horror stories about companies receiving 16 gauge racks instead of the 14 gauge that they have ordered.  How can you determine that you've gotten what you've paid for?  The only way to be sure, and this is with any rack company, is to weigh.  Ask your supplier what the weight should be on these racks, and weigh them when they arrive. 

Don't take delivery on racks that come in too light, as that means that the supplier has skimped on the metal, and delivered you an inferior product.  Many racks, particularly those manufactured outside of the US, suffer from lighter gauge tubing and inferior manufacturing, and will not hold up over the long run.  

Tier-Rack Corporation has been a leader in rack solutions and flexible warehouse racking systems for almost sixty years. The original Tier-RackR pallet stacking frame converts regular warehouse pallets into sturdy storage racks in seconds without screws or bolts. And the Load-NesterR all-steel storage rack features light and heavy duty models of solid all-welded, knock-down, or nestable designs for all your material handling needs.

Our portable stacking racks and rack systems are designed to handle and store even the most fragile, odd-shaped, and awkward merchandise. They can be designed to transport two loads at a time. Our stack racks reduce handling time, stack up to six high, and they are capable of supporting thousands of pounds per unit load. All Tier-Rack racks are engineered with a "2-to-1" safety factor to ensure the racks will perform safely and last for decades. For more information, visit http://tier-rack.com today.

Tire Racks In a Successful Warehouse

TirePassengerRack3

A tire retailer needs many things in his warehouse, but the most important product that they can purchase is a stacking tire rack.  Tier-Rack Corporation, of St. Louis, is the nation's number one provider of tire racks, including both stacking and retail-ready racks, in the nation.  They are also the inventors of the Stack Rack, the unique stackable storage solution that has made warehouse functions run smoothly since 1955.  This knowledge and experience makes Tier-Rack the choice for any warehouse needs, including tire racks.

Finding the right warehouse tire rack is just as important.  Some companies need permanent structures, large, imposing racks that stay in one place and hold their cargo for years.  Other companies require more portable racks, allowing for the warehouse to be configured in different ways and for different stock to cycle through according to season and volume.  Tier-Rack can accomodate both of these needs, giving companies the safety of knowing that they have bought just the right storage rack for their company, and that they are made in the USA of the highest quality materials.

If you give Tier-Rack Corporation a chance to bid on your storage solutions, they will find both the price point and quantity that your company needs to store tires in their warehouse effectively, and the support and help of Tier-Rack's sales, manufacturing and engineering teams at each step of the process.  Contact them today at www.tier-rack.com and call (800) 325-7869 to talk to a sales consultant today.

Shipping Racks For Your Warehouse This Summer

Customdunnagerack4

As Summer heats up, shipping and warehouse issues become difficult.  It's hard to work in a really hot warehouse, so you want to have your materials ready to move and available.  That's where using top-quality Shipping Racks will push your business to new heights.  Using Shipping Racks that are designed to cube out a truck or to be moved quickly in and out of your facilities can cut time off of your employees' day and keep them out of the dangerous heat.  Using Shipping Racks just makes sense.

Let us show you how our custom designed shipping racks can helpyou cube out a trailer or shipping container and save on shipping costs. Calculate your ROI using our cost saving shipping containers and you will see what a value they offer. We offer total design services for these stackable shipping racks, including AutoCAD® drafting. Often we can design a custom rack with no more than a prototype of the part to be shipped. Our product design team will deliver a solution that will hold your items securely in a cost effective stack rack. Many types of interior protective dunnage are used to keep your parts from being damaged during transit.

We can design racks to span the width of a trailer often called Truck Decking, or racks to hold individual pallet loads sitting side by side like automotive racks.  Often these shipping racks or shipping containers are designed with sides that can fold down. This allows empty racks to be stacked more densely for lower freight costs on the return trip. This also prevents the rack posts from being misplaced in shipment. Whether your products are light and fragile or heavy and awkward to handle, we have the experience to help you move your parts safely.

Past applications include the following:

Transmissions

Hoods

Catalytic converters

Side panels

Glass

Palletized and boxed items

Summer Warehouse Tips From Tier-Rack

Orangeracks4high

Keep Your Warehouse Cool This Summer

It’s a hot summer.  Nothing slows down production like a heat wave in your warehouse.  Think about it though – couldn’t your warehouse run more efficiently and quickly if the workers are comfortable?  As anyone who runs a warehouse can tell you, being uncomfortable leads to rushing leads to mistakes.  Here are a few ways to deal with warehouse heat and humidity to help make your warehouse run more efficiently through the summer.

What can you do

  1. Install high-volume A/C units.  Fastest and safest method to reduce heat and humidity.  May not be as effective if you have large bay doors that are open constantly, and doesn’t help outdoor workers.
  2. Some machinery is prone to overheating.  Make sure that if you have conveyor belts or other machinery that doesn’t perform well in the heat, try to keep it in the cooler parts of the building. 
  3. Know your employees and workforce.  Not everyone handles the heat as well as others.  If you have employees that have trouble with the heat, consider moving them to a cooler area or giving them frequent breaks.
  4. Watering stations can really help with cooldown.  Keep stations at regular intervals and assign employees and resources to keep them filled.  An employee with heatstroke is a serious matter.  Not just lost work time, but a human being hurt in your warehouse.  If you see signs of heatstroke, or your employees do, rectify that right away.  Tell your employees to watch for signs such as dizziness and loss of breath.
  5. Lock in the cool air.  Vinyl strips can keep in as much as 60% of your cold air without disrupting the workflow of your warehouse.
  6. Industrial dehumidifiers are a huge comfort to employees. Taking the humidity down makes an immediate difference in the health and comfort of your workforce.

 

These are just some of the ways that you can make your warehouse more comfortable and effective.  Tier-Rack can help as well.  We have experience designing custom racks and helping companies utilize their space, both in the horizontal AND the vertical.  We can help your company whether you’re moving in or redesigning.  Call us today at 800-325-7869 or visit www.tier-rack.com for more information.  Don’t live with frustrating racks and unusable space any more.

Warehouse Racks From Tier-Rack Open Up Your Warehouse

Orangeracks4high

Are you suffocating under your supply?  Is your warehouse a mess?  Do you feel like you’re just not organized, and it’s keeping your warehouse from being the efficient system that it should be?  You’re not alone.  Many companies are using outmoded storage systems that don’t give easy access to your products, or have flexible solutions to your particular warehouse space. 

Proper shelving will make your company more profitable, simply by maximizing your space. Who needs an expensive warehouse expansion, or a relocation to a new building? Using racks that are portable gives you more ways to utilize your available space. With more product on hand and a safe way to keep it organized, your operation can excel to new heights with the right shelving unit!

Here’s a quick look at some of the most popular types of industrial shelving to get you started.

Tier-Rack® portable racks are used by thousands of customers in hundreds of industries. Some of our customers use our portable stacking rack as standard warehouse racks, or as a stacking bin. In this case they place their product directly on our mobile rack and save the cost of wooden pallets.

The protection provided by the corner posts of the portable rack is a primary benefit. Bulky or hard-to-stack products are contained within the corner posts of the mobile storage racks. This provides stability for goods on the portable pallet when moving it within the warehouse or factory.

Others who use wood pallets and need to stack without causing product damage, find that our Tier-Rack® Pallet Stacking Frames fits their needs. The steel frame of the Tier-Rack® stacking rack clips onto the wood pallet, providing a secure “cage” that both allows the pallets to be safely stacked and protects the products within the rack enclosure.

Another use of portable storage racks is for handling work-in-process parts; a metal bin that holds several parts at one time, reducing plant traffic. They are custom racks designed to meet your needs, whether the parts to be handled are delicate or massive. Usually, these parts racks are designed as folding racks or collapsible racks.

Nestable racks are another type of portable stacking racks. These racks can be “nested”, or stacked inside of each other when empty, without removing the corner posts. Our Load-Nester® stacking racks nest when not in use, and carry and stack loads of 4,000 pounds per rack or more. This can be beneficial in an active warehouse where unused space is at a premium.

Whatever the application, whether it is for portable stack rack shipping racks, nesting racks, portable cart or warehouse storage racks – Tier-Rack has a portable stack rack that will do the job.  Tier-Rack Corporation has been a leader in rack solutions and flexible warehouse racking systems for almost sixty years. The original Tier-Rack® pallet stacking frame converts regular warehouse pallets into sturdy storage racks in seconds without screws or bolts. And the Load- Nester® all-steel storage rack features light and heavy duty models of solid all-welded, knock-down, or nestable designs for all your material handling needs. Our portable stacking racks and rack systems are designed to handle and store even the most fragile, odd-shaped, and awkward merchandise. They can be designed to transport two loads at a time. Our stack racks reduce handling time, stack four to six high, and they are capable of supporting thousands of pounds per unit load. All Tier-Rack racks are engineered with a "2-to-1" safety factor to ensure the racks will perform safely and last for decades.  For more information, visit www.tier-rack.com or call 800-325-7869 for more information, or to order your racks.

Warehouses Need Used Shipping Racks

bumperafter

Used shipping racks are the lifeblood of the trucking industry.  Companies need used shipping racks.  They are what let companies move their products across the country safely and quickly and they help keep your products safe and sound through the process of getting them from your warehouse into the hands of your customers.  Used shipping racks make shipping affordable and convenient.  The best part about them is that they also double as warehouse racks, so you can ship your products on the same rack that protects and holds them in your warehouse.

Finding a reliable used shipping rack can be tough though.  You need to buy them through a reputable company, or you can risk putting your products on a faulty base, exposing them to the damage that you would if you sent them without a rack.  A faulty used shipping rack can collapse on you at the wrong time, and dump your products all through the truck or train car you're transporting them in, or the rack itself can crumple and crush your products.

That's why Tier-Rack inspects used racks for quality to make sure that you are getting the used shipping rack that you paid for every time.  Your products will be safe throughout the shipping process, and save money by not having to pack and repack, or replace broken merchandise.  Our shipping racks also allow you to "cube out" your container, giving you the maximum return for your investment and getting your product where it needs to be on-time and intact.

Tier-Rack has been the leader in the storage rack industry since 1955.  We sell used shipping racks as well as warehouse racks to fit every budget and industry, and will save your company money while providing the highest-quality rack available.  Call us at 800-325-7869 or visit www.tier-rack.com today to order.

Warehouse Racks Make Your Warehouse Less Complicated

MaximizeSpaceinWarehouse

Running a warehouse is a complicated job.  Beyond the job of organizing schedules and keeping people on task, keeping the warehouse's stock accessible and safe is the main task.  Finding a balance between rotating old stock forward, keeping aisles clear, and ensuring that the stock is stored in a way that the items don't become damaged is very important.

This balance is especially important in warehouses that store tires, such as tire shops, big box stores, auto repair shops, and any business that repairs their own vehicles.  These warehouses need to have their stock accessible, as their customers need to have their vehicles fixed, and moving the customers in and out quickly can make all of the difference in staying open and going out of business.  Tires also have to be stored correctly physically to keep them from warping, which can lead to blowouts and lawsuits.

Whether you need 1 rack or 1,000, Tier-Rack has the solution for you.  Give us a chance to change your warehouse with Used Stack Racks and speed up your business.

Tier-Rack Tire Racks Are Your Best Friend Tire Retailers!

rack2

As a product, one would think that a tire should be easy to store.  You buy them, you stick them in a warehouse, and you sell them.  Easy as pie.  However, the way that tires are stored has a HUGE effect on their appearance, durability, and value.  There are several different styles of decking that store the tires in different ways.  You can choose between perforated decking, wire decking, and no decking.

Perforated decking has a solid hole to decking ratio.  This ratio of holes to solid deck will give solid support to the tires and will leave racked tires unmarked in the rack.  These also are fire codeapproved, as they allow water to sluice through the decking, allowing fires below and around the racks to be extinguished.  Wire mesh decking is less expensive than perforated decking, and leaves larger openings in the decking.  If you don't plan on keeping stock on hand for long periods, this is a great option, as you want for the tires to have little time for the wire to leave marks on the tires.  The least expensive way to store your tires is with no decking at all.  Tier-Rack Corp engineers can design your racks with the inner and outer rack beams aligned to hold your particular tire, however, this works best when people will not be standing on the racks as they load or unload: the beams are not designed to support people securely.

Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality car tire racks at a very affordable price. We buy steel tubing directly from the tube mills in truckload quantities. Then our talented and efficient teams in our low overhead production facilities transform the steel tubing into high quality portable racks that have been designed to meet your needs. Give us a chance to prove to you that nobody does it better than Tier-Rack! Whether you need 100,000 tire racks or 10 tire racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice.

Purchasing Storage Racks

FACTORYRACKING1

When you are purchasing storage racks, one of the main considerations is the durability and longevity of the product.  You don't want to purchase a rack and have it fold on you in less than a year, or have the welds break on you in transit.  While it's impossible to have 100% durability, when you make racks with superior metals and techniques, they will last longer and perform better for you.  That's why Tier-Rack is the top choice for storage racks for any business.  Tier-Rack provides storage racks for the long haul.

Tier-Rack sales people are the first people you talk to when you call to order, and the last people you speak to after you place your order.  For example, when you purchase a tire rack from Tier-Rack, the sales team takes your order, the in house engineering team designs your rack, the United States-based manufacturing warehouse fabricates the rack, and it's delivered to you.  Tier-Rack's sales team also follows with you every step - including helping to deal with inspectors and regulators if necessary.

However, not every company follows these guidelines.  There are horror stories about companies receiving 16 gauge racks instead of the 14 gauge that they have ordered.  How can you determine that you've gotten what you've paid for?  The only way to be sure, and this is with any rack company, is to weigh.  Ask your supplier what the weight should be on these racks, and weigh them when they arrive.  Don't take delivery on racks that come in too light, as that means that the supplier has skimped on the metal, and delivered you an inferior product.  Many racks, particularly those manufactured outside of the US, suffer from lighter gauge tubing and inferior manufacturing, and will not hold up over the long run.  

Tier-Rack Corporation has been a leader in rack solutions and flexible warehouse racking systems for almost sixty years. The original Tier-RackR pallet stacking frame converts regular warehouse pallets into sturdy storage racks in seconds without screws or bolts. And the Load-NesterR all-steel storage rack features light and heavy duty models of solid all-welded, knock-down, or nestable designs for all your material handling needs. Our portable stacking racks and rack systems are designed to handle and store even the most fragile, odd-shaped, and awkward merchandise. They can be designed to transport two loads at a time. Our stack racks reduce handling time, stack up to six high, and they are capable of supporting thousands of pounds per unit load. All Tier-Rack racks are engineered with a "2-to-1" safety factor to ensure the racks will perform safely and last for decades. For more information, visit http://tier-rack.com today.

Tire Racks Make Tire Management Easy

2tierLockingRackFrontView

Many companies store tires.  Whether they are manufacturers, retailers, repair shops, or businesses that need to replace tires often, like bus companies or taxi services, they need a way to store multiple tires safely, and many times, to ship them effectively as well.  Finding a way to store these tires is a constant battle between storing as much as possible, being able to easily access these tires, and being able to organize your warehouse.  Luckily, Tier-Rack Corporation has a way around this.

The Tier-Rack Stacking Rack, invented by Tier-Rack in 1955, is the industry leader in creating vertical, portable space in your warehouse.  The original Tier-Rack® pallet stacking frame converts regular warehouse pallets into sturdy storage racks in seconds without screws or bolts. And the Load-Nester® all-steel storage rack features light and heavy duty models of solid all-welded, knock-down, or nestable designs for all your material handling needs.

Our portable stacking racks and rack systems are designed to handle and store even the most fragile, odd-shaped, and awkward merchandise. They can be designed to transport two loads at a time. Our stack racks reduce handling time, stack four to six high, and they are capable of supporting thousands of pounds per unit load. All styles of racking are engineered to meet and/or exceed the "2-to-1" safety factor established by the Rack Manufacturers Institute (RMI) for portable rack design specifications. 

With Tire Racks, this is very important.  Tires must be stored so that there is not an excessive amount of pressure on the tire, which can cause warping and soft spots, damaging the live expectancy of the tire.  These can lead to blowouts and dangerous conditions, and angry customers as well!
