Holiday Card & Inventory Hours

Inventory and Holiday Hours

We cannot believe that it is already December, and we want to thank you for a great 2017! Without you, none of what we do would be possible. As we approach the end of the year, we are now looking to set up an even better 2018! With the end of the year comes everyone’s favorite time of the year, time to count inventory!

Why is it necessary to count inventory every year?  We take the time to count each and every one of our products manually to ensure quality and accounting accuracy. We do this to ensure that we can be the best business partner we can be for you.

While we are busy counting inventory at our headquarters in Westfield, IN, our response time may be slightly delayed as we prepare to serve you in 2018. Physical inventory will take place on Tuesday, December 19th through Thursday, December 21st.

In addition to physical inventory, we will be out of the office Monday, December 25th in observance of the Christmas Holiday, and will return to the office on Tuesday, December 26th. Finally, we will be out of the office Monday, January 1st in celebration of the new year and will be returning Tuesday, January 2nd.

While we may not be in the office, we are still eager and ready to serve you and will follow up on any inquiries as quickly as we can. While we are out, you can still check out all of our great products here! We look forward to working with you in 2018, and Happy Holidays!

Is the deal too good to be true?

Is Your Deal too Good to be True?

Everyone loves a good deal, but nobody likes unpleasant surprises. As consumers, we are always trying to save money while still getting the most bang for our buck.  It’s part of a good business strategy.  However, it’s also important to remember that if something looks too good to be true; it probably is.

We recently had a customer who thought they were getting a good deal, but instead ended up with a very nasty surprise. This customer ordered some pallet rack from another supplier at a very low cost point. The customer planned to install the pallet rack themselves but had NO IDEA how much work that would be. When the pallet rack arrived they only received the various deconstructed components to make the upright frames, instead of assembled uprights as they had expected. (see photo)

Deal too good to be true?

Some equipment providers may cut corners to provide customers with the lowest cost point. As a customer, this can be dangerous financially and structurally if you don’t fully understand what you’re getting when you sign on the dotted line.

At Storage Solutions, we only work with top quality equipment manufacturers for our new equipment & promise to never leave our customers with this type of unpleasant surprise. If you purchase used equipment from us you can do so with the knowledge that we only bring in the highest quality pre-owned equipment & it is stored indoors and out of the elements. When you purchase from us, you can do so with the knowledge that you will get what you’re promised, and what you pay for.

What To Look For:

  • Prices that are unbelievably low sometimes means product quality is low for new equipment or product condition is less than desirable for used equipment
  • Suspiciously low prices may also mean product features are missing (ie. assembled uprights) or specs & capacities won’t meet your expectations
  • RMI product certification shows that the product has been tested & is in accordance with current building codes & safety standards – if the product is not RMI certified it is not from a quality equipment manufacturer & doesn’t meet any current building code.

If you have any questions about our equipment, feel free to reach out to an experienced member of our team!

pallet flow

Why Pallet Flow Will Optimize Your Warehouse

We’re all looking for a way to work harder and smarter. Pallet Flow gives you the opportunity to make your warehouse more efficient by moving products quicker than ever before.

What are the benefits of pallet flow?

It is easy to use, being a first in first out system (FIFO), which is what makes it different from other types of drive-in racks. Pallet flow also has a different pick and load system.  You get a quicker pick and load time by loading the pallet on one side, and allowing it to slide down the other.

While other types of racking can hold anywhere from about two to five pallets, pallet flow can hold anywhere from twelve to fifteen racks (depending on the model).

Pallet flow is great when it comes to customization.  We all want equipment that fits our specific needs. Customers can tailor this rack to the sizes and weights of their exact pallets.  Pallet Flow is also usable anywhere in your warehouse; on the floor, with basic racking and more!

Pallet flow is one of the most durable, and dynamic systems you can have in your warehouse. With all of these features, it will be the most efficient piece of equipment you have.  Check out our specialty equipment page for more details.
