The Shipping Solution? Used Shipping Racks

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.

Used Stack Racks Make Your Warehouse Work

A new warehouse is exciting and frustrating.  You get all of this new space, sure, but how should it be laid out?  Is the building you can afford the one you require?  Will it have your amenities and space to grow?  The most important question though is how to lay it out.  Here are a few factors to examine as you develop your warehouse layout.

 Equipment Size: Will your production machinery need more space than you anticipate, between its footprint and the employees that use it?

Get LEAN: This is a great time to restructure your operation.  Talk to the employees on the floor.  Ask them what they would change, how they would lay things out.  They’re there every day, ask them what would make the process more streamlined.

Height: Make sure that you have some vertical space, but not too much.  Stack Racks make it easier to utilize this space, but too much and you’re heating and cooling space for no reason.

Aisles: Start with measuring the size of your lift trucks.  Then give them adequate space on each side to get through.  Sounds like common sense, but we’ve been asked to design racks for companies that didn’t plan ahead and couldn’t get their trucks through.

Department Matters: You’re banking on your business growing, so why not build out in a way that can help facilitate that?  Make sure that every department has the room it needs to grow.  Often, one part of the operation ends up shortchanged (usually receiving) and it hurts the entire operation.

 

 

This doesn’t take into account all of the EHS factors of course, but it’s a great way to start getting your warehouse organized.  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.

Used Truck Tire Racks

Storing truck tires can be a hassle, as they are generally sized differently than the more commonly available passenger tire racks.  Tier-Rack Corporation has been the leading manufacturer of Truck Tire Racks since 1955, the year they invented the stackable frames for tire storage.  They are the original source for truck tire storage racks, and have made it possible for thousands of customers to eliminate their material storage handling issues.  

Tier-Rack has many different varieties of truck tire racks to choose from, giving customers choices about how they store their tires.  However, unlike many Truck Tire Rack distributors, Tier-Rack Corporation actually manufactures their own products.  Tier-Rack also has engineers on staff to help design the tire rack that you need for your material storage use.  Many customers like to use wire mesh decks, for example, as their fire codes require water from overhead sprinklers to pass through grating to the floor below.  The ratio of holes to solid deck that our team designed gives solid support to the tires while leaving no marks on the tire.  The highly trained, on-staff engineering team creates custom racks that are then built on-site at Tier-Rack's manufacturing centers.

Used Tire Racks Help Store Your Tires

Used Tire Racks

Whether you call them tier racks, stacking racks, pallet frames, portable stack rack, tire racks, diamond tops, nestable racks or stackers, Tier-Rack has a portable storage solution to fit your requirements.  Used Tire Racks help store your tires.

We have served thousands of companies in the tire, automotive, retail, agricultural, construction and building materials, textile, and food industries for over 50 years providing many types and sizes of portable stack racks.

Used Carpet Pad RackTier-Rack specializes in both the purchase and sale of used rack including used tire rack, pallet stacking frames, stack rack, used pallet racking, used warehouse rack, stacking bins, nestainer style racks and other material handling equipment throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada. These items include our own Tier-Rack® frames, Load-Nester®, as well as brands from other rack manufacturers like Jarke, Steel King and others. Please enjoy browsing our online selection of used items for sale. If you have used material handling equipment you would like to sell, let us know and we can pay you cash for your used inventory!

However you store your tires, flat, on tread or laced, Tier-Rack can provide tire rack storage that won’t break your budget. Tire Racks were our original product, and the tire industry continues to be one of our important markets. While the 60” x 60” rack is still the most popular size, we also make many other sizes to meet your specific tire stacking rack needs.

Here are some of the different types of tire racks Tier-Rack can produce for you.

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.Used Tire Racks

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.

If you need shipping containers for tires, we make a folding rack for the economical return of the LacingTiresempty racks. Since the posts are not removed from the rack, there is no concern about losing some posts during the return trip. As with all of our varieties of tire racks, these can be made for any size and load capacity that you need. These shipping racks can be designed with or without decking to meet your needs.  They are strong enough to withstand years of use and material handling.  The tire and rack combination is what all tire distributors must have to store tires effectively

Let us show you how our years of manufacturing experience can provide you with quality 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 steel tire 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 steel tire racks or 10 tire racks, Tier-Rack is your best choice for stackable tire racks.  Are you wondering on how to store tires, look at the gallery below for different options.

Is This the Used Stack Rack That I Bought?

Buying a Used Stack Rack can be a leap of faith.  You're buying a product on faith that it will function properly and that you will get the product that you ordered.  When you get the wrong color shirt from Amazon, you send it back.  If you get the wrong Used Stack Rack from some overseas company, you may be out of luck if they are non-responsive.  If you ask yourself "Is this the used stack rack that I bought?" then you probably didn't buy it from Tier-Rack, the most trusted name in Used Stack Racks.

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 used tire rack from Tier-Rack, the sales team takes your order 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.

Used Tire Baskets Store Your Tires For Less

Tires are malleable and soft, yet have to be completely round and flawless to avoid blowouts and failures.  An improperly stored tire is a ticking time bomb that can lead to blowouts, accidents, and deaths.  Finding the medium between storing tires safely and cost efficiency can be hard to discover.  That's where Used Tire baskets can help.  Used Tire Baskets Store Your Tires For Less, saving you money and keeping your products in great shape.

Tires can be stored on racks, but is there another way to store tires effectively in a rack beside straight up and down or stacked?  The Tier-Rack Tire Rack Basket answers this question.  Wire baskets across the boards of the racks hold tires in place safely, while the wires are spaced to create a safe landing area that supports and cradles the tires, keeping them from developing "dead spots" and warping.  This ensures that whether tires are being stored for customer use or as part of fleet maintenance, that all tires will be stored safely.

Since 1955, Tier-Rack Corp has used their Tier-Rack storage system to store tires, boxes, fabric, pipe, electronics, bicycles, furniture, food, beverages, and almost any product that can be kept in a warehouse.  Any company that uses pallets can use this product, which stacks frames on top of your existing wood pallets to create vertical space.These will allow a company to stack 3 to 5 loads of crushable of fragile products, as well as awkward, non-stackable product.  

When the frames aren't being utilized, they take up a small amount of space, folding down to conserve your precious warehouse space.

Companies Need Used Shipping Racks

Used Shipping Racks

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 on 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.

Carpet Pad Racks For Your Storeroom

Carpet pad occupies a lot of space when floor stacked on pallets. At the most you can stack the rolls into an unstable pyramid. A Tier-Rack®  pad rack allows the pad rolls to be stacked in a dense bundle. The uprights on a modular rack hold your pad rolls in place without using shrink wrap. This allows you to store about three times as many rolls per pallet position. Stack the pad storage racks 3 to 4 bins high giving the appearance of standard pallet shelving This opens up a large amount of valuable floor space for other uses.

The portable foam racks also provide security for each pad roll as the roll storage rack is being moved about your location. It is often faster and easier for a forklift truck to pick up a loaded foam rack than a pallet of loose pad rolls. The rolls are also held securely as the rack is moved, which means you are less likely to have a pad roll fall off the load. In some applications the roll storage racks can be waiting at the receiving dock for a truckload of loose pad rolls, loaded with carpet pad rolls and moved into the warehouse to be stacked. Customers have reported that they can reduce the time needed to unload a 53’ trailer by 75% using our roll racks.

If You Roll Product Suspended Roll Racks Will Store Them

 

Suspended roll racks: Do you manufacture or distribute product in rolled form? Rolls that you cannot stack on each other without risking damage? Plastic film, fabric, rolls of vinyl and non wovens can occupy excessive floor space. Use your warehouse air space!!

 

Tier-Rack® suspended roll rack is an excellent fabric rack that allows the rolls to be protected from creasing and flattening within the rack, while permitting the rolls to be stacked to the ceiling in your warehouse. Standard pallet racking does not solve this problem.Fabric racks do solve this problem!

 

– Use these sturdy stacking racks to protect sensitive rolls from damage. Since the roll is suspended on a core beam, the material never touches the rack. You can access the rolls with a fork lift or hoist. Instead of taking up all of your valuable floor space with individual rolls, put them into roll racks and stack the racks 3 to 5 high. A suspended roll storage rack is the best way to store rolls of vinyl or a paper roll or a packaging roll. These racks can be designed as a label rack to hold rolls of labels, or as paper storage rack or paper roll rack for paper roll storage. Portable suspended roll racks are also ideal for storing and shipping plastic film. 

Our heavy duty custom racks are designed to give years of service. Whatever you need to store or ship, whether the product is light or heavy, bulky or fragile, we can provide an affordable solution.

 

The stacking racks also provide security for the rolls as they are being moved in your operation. It is often faster and easier for a forklift truck to pick up a loaded roll rack than a loose roll. In some applications this industrial shelving is also used as a heavy duty stacker to stage the rolls in your production area from which product can be fed directly into the production process from the stackable rack.

 

Do your rolls need to get to your customer undamaged? Why build crates that have to be dissasembled and disposed of by your customer never to be used again? Use the roll rack as a returnable shipping container. We can design a custom rack that contains your rolls and fits within your trucks.

Storage Racks For the Long Haul

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.

Portable Racks Are Safe and Mobile Storage

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.LN-3SteelSlatdeckfront

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.

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.OutsideStorage
