Warehouse Racking Relocation
Storage Concepts completed the relocation of Warehouse Racking for a client based in Loughborough, Leicestershire.
We dismantled their old Pallet Racking and Long Span Racking, relocated and installed the racking in their new Warehouse. The relocation provided the company with a suitable shelving system to ensure their storage requirements are fully met. After completing this work. Rob had this to say “Your team has been very friendly and helpful throughout the process, having moved a lot of racking before I can say your team are the best we have come across.”
We pride ourselves on delivering not only excellent products and services, but we also pride ourselves on high levels of customer service.
Checklist for Relocating your Warehouse Pallet Racking
Relocating Pallet Racking requires careful planning and execution to ensure a smooth transition. Storage Concepts can assist you with the following…
Evaluating the New Warehouse Space
Measure the dimensions and layout of the new warehouse to determine if it can accommodate the existing pallet racking system. Assess the floor condition and load-bearing capacity to ensure it can support the weight of the racking.
Conducting a Detailed Inventory
Take stock of all the inventory stored on the pallet racking system. Create an itemised list of the products, quantities, and their locations on the racks.
Design a Layout Plan
Create a layout plan for the new warehouse, considering factors like workflow, access points, and future expansion. Determine the optimal arrangement of pallet racking to maximise space utilisation and operational efficiency.
Disassemble the Pallet Racking
Assign a qualified team to disassemble the pallet racking system following manufacturer guidelines or professional assistance if required. Label and organise the disassembled components for easy reassembly at the new location.
Inspect and Repair
Inspect all pallet racking components for any signs of damage or wear. Replace or repair any damaged or faulty parts to ensure the structural integrity of the system.
Transporting and Storing the Racking
Safely transport the disassembled pallet racking components to the new warehouse. Store the components in a designated area, ensuring they are protected from damage and kept organised.
Reassemble the Pallet Racking
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions or seek professional assistance to reassemble the pallet racking system accurately. Ensure proper alignment, levelling, and anchoring of the racks to maintain stability and safety.
Cross-reference the itemised inventory list with the relocated pallet racking system to ensure all products are correctly placed. Make any necessary adjustments or corrections to accurately reflect the new storage locations.
Conduct Load Testing
Perform load testing on the reassembled pallet racking system to verify its load-bearing capacity and stability. Ensure that the racking can safely support the weight of the stored inventory.
Implement Safety Measures
Install safety accessories, such as rack guards, end protectors, and aisle barriers, to prevent accidents and protect the racking system. Train warehouse staff on proper loading, unloading, and handling procedures to maintain safety standards.
Update all relevant documentation, including floor plans, inventory records, and safety procedures, to reflect the new location of the pallet racking system.
Monitor and Adjust
Continuously monitor the performance and stability of the pallet racking system after relocation. Make any necessary adjustments or improvements to optimise the storage efficiency and safety.
