These increases in steel prices coupled with higher energy costs have forced domestic and foreign material handling equipment manufacturers to pass on costs to the material handling distribution, logistics markets in the United States. Also, the economic downturn has also brought some uncertainty to the US consumer base which many leading economist concede as the major economic driver in the United Sates economy.
These events have been the catalyst for both small and large distribution - manufacturing operations to turn to used warehouse equipment as a way to dramatically improve the ROI on major material handling equipment purchases like used pallet racks, used Roll formed pallet rack, used Structural pallet rack, used Mezzanines, used Shelving, used Pick systems, used Forklifts and used Conveyor systems.
For years there have many small regional used warehouse equipment suppliers – brokers throughout the United States. Some used warehouse equipment companies are beginning to provide the same high level of services to the material handling market place, equal to the new warehouse equipment manufacturers and large material handling integrators.
WarehouseWholesaler.com is one of the fastest growing liquidators and sellers of used warehouse equipment in the United States. The owner, Greg Herzog credits the experience and professionalism of the staff and the willingness to carry inventory in the Northeastern US Distribution center and in other regions of the country to service clients.
Distribution operations can build budgets for new warehouse equipment, but plan a timeline for when the new equipment must be purchased by. Then use the early months of projects to search for new or used warehouse equipment with the right specifications to meet their needs. This approach allows the companies time to search the market place for used warehouse equipment prior to the “drop dead” cut off date. Most times, companies save 30-50% off the purchase price of new equipment. In cases of more specialized applications savings of 60-70% less than the price points of new are common.
In the rare case the required used equipment cannot be found, the DC operator can still purchase the required material new and meet the project timelines.
With some industry markets experiencing hyper-competitive pressures, this approach offers real opportunity to save large amounts of capital when purchasing warehouse equipment like used pallet rack, used shelving , used conveyors and used mezzanines with no risk to service or quality standards to their customers.
