So you are interested in stack racks but not sure of the cost? Tier-Rack Corporation, a leading US manufacturer of stack rack, tire rack and shipping racks specializes in all sizes and styles of portable racks at prices competitive with other types of racking.
Normally when companies consider racking costs, the price per pallet position takes center stage. From this standpoint only, portable stack racks are a little more per pallet position than standard pallet rack. However, upon further analysis, one might be surprised to learn that stackable racking has other offsetting costs that make it more affordable over the long run.
First, take into consideration the installation cost of pallet rack vs. $0 installation cost of stacking racks...just drop the posts in and go! Next consider the flexibility of the stack rack system, allowing you to more efficiently handle your product. Many companies are finding that the labor and time savings of portable stack racks far outweigh the initial cost of the racks. Tire racks specifically save enormous amounts of time and manpower.

All in all, stack racks offer more flexibility and over the lifespan a lower total cost than fixed racking.
