Used Shipping Racks Help Move Your Products For Less

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 - Get The Right One

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.

Be Safe With Your Used Storage Racks

Used Storage Racks from Tier-Rack are tested to be as sound as possible.  We examine each of the racks that pass through our possession for faults or damage before they are sold, and can tell you that they meet a certain capacity.  However, just because they have been rated at one weight doesn't mean they are safe to exceed it.  Be safe with your used storage racks.  Don't exceed the listed capacity for these racks and your warehouse will be a safe place with safe workers and products. 

Overstacking a rack is dangerous. whether it's for tires, general goods, giant coils, grains, or whatever, there's a weight limit that your rack was built to specifications for.  This weight limit, however, isn't always easy for warehouse managers to convey to their employees, regardless of how important it is to warehouse safety.  There may be a missing link in the chain of information, where the manager creates a sign which is covered by something else, or the lessons get lost in the shuffle of employee turnover.  However, this important lesson needs to be imparted at every level, as no company can afford for their inventory to crash to the floor.

Overstacking isn't the only problem though.  Racks can be weakened by collisions with forklifts, by improper stacking, by being in improper configurations or environments, or they may arrive in an unsatisfactory condition.  This last one, however, is one that Tier-Rack Corp can fix.  Every rack manufactured by Tier-Rack Corporation meets their highest safety and manufacturing specs, and are manufactured here, in the United States, of the finest metals and techniques at their manufacturing factories.  

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.

Used Tire Racks Sell Your Tires

OK, if you got this far, you're obviously a tire seller or someone who has to store a lot of tires on a regular basis.  Great, you're EXACTLY who I need to talk to.  Let's talk a little bit about storing tires, and how it can be extremely difficult.
Tires are both solid and malleable.  Tthey are heavy, and made to stand up to the pounding of roads, and the pressure of a car on top of them.  Getting tires to stay in the shape they started in, however, isn’t easy.  They’re made of malleable rubber, great for absorbing road shock and keeping your car safe, not great for being stored for months at a time in a hot warehouse.  Tires need to be stored specifically, in a way that they don’t deform.  That’s where tire racks come in handy!
Tire racks are designed with two basic features in mind.  Safety and accessibility.  You should always be able to get to your tires when you need to sell them, and they should be stored in a way that they will not deform or warp.  They also need to be stored in a temperate environment.  Too much cold can damage the rubber, and too much heat and moisture can warp them irretrievably.  A warped tire is a dangerous, unsellable tire, and you can’t afford to lose them to insufficient storage.  Always store tire racks inside, in climate-controlled warehouses to prevent this.
For actually physically holding the tires, the rack should be designed to distribute pressure evenly throughout the surface of the tire, as opposed to one point of contact.  Rack surfaces should have perforated decks, as they allow the tire to sit comfortably while not putting extra pressure on the actual tire.  Too much pressure will force the tire to reform, and cause it to become less stable.  It also will lead to easier blowouts and less reliability, costing you repeat customers.
Call Tier-Rack Corp today at 800-325-7869 or read more at www.tier-rack.com.  Tier-Rack has carried the best in tire racks and warehouse racks, including their revolutionary stack rack, since 1955.

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.

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.

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
