Relocating an entire warehouse - a daunting proposition?

Been there, done it, got the t shirt!

rackingWhen relocating to new premises, the thought of moving large pallet racking or shelving systems could be a daunting task. Not least the actual dismantling and re-erecting on site but the multitude of other considerations that have to be taken into account, like what to do with the stored stock and how to achieve the safe transit of goods and equipment? Our 50 years of experience came in very handy when we were asked to help with this project.

Safety bollards

Protect staff and premises

safety bollardI can still recall the words spoken to me by my driving instructor on my very first driving lesson 26 years ago. “A car in the right hands is a means to get from one place to another, but used incorrectly it becomes a deadly weapon”. He was right, thinking about it logically, if you look how much mass a vehicle has and its ability to accelerate and travel at high speeds, the consequences of even the smallest error can be disastrous, even at very low speed, the damaged caused by impact can be very costly, as I will be indicating in this case study.
