Purchasing used flow rack units can be an effective way to save money on your equipment budget for your warehouse. However, it is important to make sure that you’re buying from a trusted source, or you may end up paying for equipment that breaks down after as little as a few months. This can lead not only to wasted capital, but also potential workplace hazards for your employees who are working with equipment that is not as sound as they expect it to be.
When purchasing preowned flow racks, as with any industrial equipment, the first thing to ask for is how old the equipment is. If a vendor is unwilling to show you the original manufacture date on a particular unit, chances are they don’t want to admit that they’re trying to sell you equipment that’s about to fall apart. It also helps considerably to ask for thorough inspection documentation on the unit you’re looking to buy.
