Material Handling System Consultation & Installation at The Surplus Warehouse

The design and implementation of pallet rack systems and shelving units has become increasingly complex in recent years. This is due in large part to the advent of sophisticated material handling equipment. To make better use of space, enhance product flow, and comply with customers’ quality demands, today’s racking and shelving manufacturers are producing a wide range of styles. Choosing the wrong one or not addressing pertinent layout and facility issues can ruin a warehouse operation.


At The Surplus Warehouse, we can help. As the largest used and new material handling dealer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PA), we are staffed with project managers that have more than 20 years of experience in the material handling industry. Over the years, we have supervised and worked through multiple scenarios and problems. If an issue arises, we have the expertise to address the problem immediately and keep the project moving forward to ensure a timely and reliable installation.


Consulting with a Surplus Warehouse Expert

With any new space there are issues to consider that may not be evident to a business owner or manager. Our design experts handle everything from surveying the space for ceiling height, sprinklers, heaters, pipes, and building columns to determining the type of lift equipment that will be used in the facility, which can have major ramifications on pallet rack layout. All of these elements significantly affect the configuration of the racking or shelving systems; yet our experts know exactly what to look for.


We can design aisle spaces that are compatible with whatever equipment will be used, as well as entire systems that are compatible with all local requirements and building codes, which typically vary by state, county, and even city or municipality. We can look at the overall flow of the warehouse and help layout a new material handling system to maximize efficiency. Since certain areas have seismic requirements, we can analyze the seismic activity of your particular zone and provide engineered drawings upon request, and ultimately advise you on the best way to proceed.

Efficient Installation by a Coordinated Crew

After the initial consultation process, we develop and execute a plan for the installation. With timing of the project taken into account, we utilize all resources to get the job done by deadline. We coordinate everything from utilizing rental equipment required for safe completion of the installation, to optimizing material delivery times, given that too much or too little material can cause delays. From start to finish, we manage the actual installation process and interface with other trades on site as required.
