Stack Racks Order Your Warehouse

When a warehouse runs correctly, it manages three tasks well.  A warehouse is designed to operate as an extension of the business.  The health of the company is built on the back of these 3 principles of warehouse operation:

Move products Know what you have Keep the place in order

Move Products

Your warehouse exists primarily to facilitate products moving in and out of your inventory.  It needs to get your products from place to place, at its core.  When your sales team makes sales, you have to be able to fulfill orders, or you won’t sell anything else.  There’s a direct connection between the ability to move products and profitability.

Know What You Have

A solid warehouse keeps products in the right place and knows what they have.  Making sure that your products are at the front of the shelves and out of the way is hugely important to the long-term health of your shop.  This has multiple uses, from knowing what NOT to sell when you’re short, to make sure that you move products that you have overstock on when that time comes.  Knowing your stock makes all the difference.

Use Bins In Your Warehouse For Small Items

If your warehouse stores lots of different types of materials, including bulk items, grains, small assorted items or anything like that, you know that storing them can be a real issue.  Finding a way to keep all of your items stored, secured, and separate are among the major headaches that warehouse managers have to suffer through.

Once you’ve determined your needs, you can find a solution with Tier-Rack.  We have both bins and bags that will keep your warehouse organized and operating at a peak level.  Our bins and bags are very portable, and will let you store every type of material that you need.

This helps increase storage density and efficiency, and lets you separate your items to where you save time searching for things in the warehouse.

Bins are also great for shipping.  Our shipping bins let you remove the headache from shipping small boxes of material, especially from your own warehouses to each other.  Never pack a new box when you already have a bin packed.  Ship in your Tier-Rack bin – they’re durable enough to be handled with a forklift and stand up to the rigors of travel.

Our bags are terrific for storing anything small that needs to be ported.  They’re ideal to use in a warehouse sorting grains or small tools, or anything that pours (and makes a mess when it spills!)  We sell bulk bag racks that keep these bags upright and make them extremely portable and safe to use.

Used Stack Racks Added To Supply at Tier-Rack

When buying a storage rack, many factors come into play.  Building out your warehouse is a complicated process that has to be tailored for each space.  Your warehouse is different than any other, and needs a plan that works for you.

 When you’re determining your warehouse plan, you also have to think about cost.  That’s where Tier-Rack’s used racks can make all of the difference.  

 Tier-Rack helps find used racks that can fit the customer, and delivers them into the hands that need them.  We operate as a re-seller for racks that otherwise may be impossible to find, as we scour the country looking for the best deals on the widest variety of used tire racks.  Finding these aren't easy, but our staff of sales professionals can find you the used tire rack that you need.

 As such, we also BUY used racks.  Many companies, when changing product or moving to larger/smaller facilities, will change and adapt their rack space accordingly.  We are there to help facilitate this process with you, to let you move on from your used tire racks and help you find a new home for them.  This allows us to have racks for our customers, and help keep everyone who wants to buy OR sell used tire racks happy. 

 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 http://tier-rack.com today.

Tire Racks Store Tires Safely

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!

Stack Racks Give Safety And Efficiency To Your Warehouse

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.

Selling Tires This Winter? Use Tire Racks To Store Them

One issue that tire companies have is getting their stock rotated.  Need to get rugged winter tires out of the back and available?  Well, why not use portable tire racks to get winter tires out front, where the people who need them can get them, and your warehouse staff can access them?  The effect on your warehouse is transformative.  Suddenly, you go from a static warehouse with immovable racks to a dynamic workspace, saving hours of time in your warehouse and letting your employees concentrate on managing the warehouse, not moving product.

Choose the style of tire rack that works best in your operation. Add perforated deck that meets fire codes by allowing water from overhead sprinklers to pass through to the stack racks below and protect the side walls. The ratio of holes to solid deck gives good support to the tires and will not leave marks on the tires in the portable rack.

Another style of stacking rack uses wire mesh decking. This decking is less expensive than perforated metal decking and has larger openings in the deck. This is a good option if your tires are in and out of your warehouse rack frequently and the wire deck doesn't have time to leave marks on your product. Naturally, the least expensive portable stack rack for tires has no decking at all. The inner and outer rack beams are located so they support the tires. This works best if you do not have people standing on the rack as they load or unload the tires, since the rack beams do not provide as secure a work surface as a deck does.

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.
