Celebrating 40 Years

After 40 years of service to the material handling industry, Storage Solutions is excited to be celebrating our 40th anniversary with you!

Without you, there is no us. We are happy to have partnered with you throughout the years on many projects within the United States and abroad. We have done installation jobs in facilities right in our backyard in Indianapolis, all the way to “Down Under” in Australia. We aim to give you the service that you expect from a small business, while still providing you with the resources of a nationwide company.

Over the years, we started in a small office in Carmel, Indiana. Since then, we have grown to a 330,000 square foot facility in Westfield, IN, along with sales offices in Kansas City, Nashville, Phoenix, Florida and California. We started with only a handful of employees, and we are excited to have eclipsed the 100 employee mark in 2001.

While celebrating this month, we recognize where we have been as a company, where we are now, and where we want to be in the future. We continually strive to be the leaders in the material handling industry, and we appreciate having our employees, our customers, and our partners with us every step of the way.

Used Equipment Safety

When buying used equipment, sometimes you’re not 100 percent sure what you are going to get. At Storage Solutions, our purchasing team has a system to make sure all the equipment we buy and re-sell is up to par with industry standards. The goal of used equipment sales is to be able to get you quality material at a fraction of the price while saving you the headaches of subpar equipment.

First and foremost, we want to ensure that the equipment we sell to you will be functional. We grade each piece of used material, and if it does not get a passing grade from our team, we will send it to be scrapped. If it is not good enough to use in our warehouse, we don’t expect it to be good enough for yours!

Certified Used Program

We also want to make sure the equipment is built to last. While equipment may be functional in the short term, we want to make sure that whatever we sell you is in it for the long haul. Our hope is to get you equipment that lasts for the entirety of your project, not just work as a bridge until you get better material.

Quality equipment is safe equipment. For that reason, we will only sell you used equipment that is up to par with our standards.

There are several reasons that you could be looking into selling used warehouse equipment from your facility. It could be that a relocation has caused a need for upgrades, or maybe a change in your operation. Whatever the reason, our purchasing team is here to clear that unneeded equipment out of the way.

Our team is also dedicated to giving you the best value for your unneeded equipment. This way you ensure that you can put that money back into your new operation. We streamline the entire process, making it easier to get your old equipment removed and new material installed.
