Is the 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!

Convenience Store Giant

At Storage Solutions, we are all about selling solutions. When our customer needed racking for their convenience store warehouse in a high seismic zone, but didn’t have the room for the extra large base-plates, our team was able to solve the problem with tube rack!

Their Problem / Our solution:

The customer needed new racking in a new warehouse to serve a convenience store giant.  The warehouse is located in a high seismic zone, and standard racking would require very large base-plates.

Our team utilized tube racking, and the base-plate size was greatly reduced allowing more product space on the floor.
