essential solutions storage needs

As the COVID-19 crisis continues its lifecycle, businesses deemed non-essential are closing down across the country. Because our company serves many necessary logistics, construction, and supply chain industries, Storage Solutions is continuing to operate unless circumstances change. We were early to establish a COVID-19 Task Force and shift to a remote workplace, wherever applicable.

We also know that we are not alone in our essential role in our economy. Companies in the material handling industry are working safely to ensure deadlines are being met, and progress continues as well as it can, given the circumstances. We are seeing many businesses responding to a change in demand. Now more than ever, companies are seeing the need for flexible, dynamic operations and are adjusting how they work to meet those challenges head-on.

Our experts are always ready to learn about how the challenges are causing pain in operations. As our company is continuing to evolve, we have the expertise in providing essential solutions and so much more.

Let us know what we can do to help. Below are a few ways we are supporting companies who are running to the best of their ability to meet changing patterns in demand at a rate they may never have before.

We are here to help make sure your business and storage space has what it needs to operate as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Sometimes that means having an affordable solution. We hunt for the best-used equipment and thoroughly inspect every piece to ensure it’s 100% safe and ready to use.

We can also talk about how adding dynamic solutions like automation to your operation no make it more technology-driven, no matter what level of automation currently exists (if at all).

Rialto California Project

We’re always up for a challenge when it comes to new facility installation! This 100,000 square foot facility in Rialto needed new material to prepare for new product and increased shipping volume in its current layout. We took on the task of installing new racking and removing old material while the facility was fully operational.

This 3-month long project revolved around the replacement of the existing equipment while working around the “operational areas”. This took a lot of coordination between the SSI Project Manager and the team on-site. Everything needed to be completely planned out so the removal and installation could be completed by the scheduled time. We were able to sequence the installation to allow the customer the necessary operating space while giving ourselves ample room to finish the project without delay.

Need some work done on a new or existing facility? Our project management team is here to help you get the job done right.

advantages of buying used equipment

There are many advantages of partnering with Storage Solutions to purchase used equipment. Our purchasing team has a system to make sure that all the equipment we re-sell is up to par with industry standards. If the equipment does not get a passing grade from our team, we send it to be scrapped. At Storage Solutions, we believe that if it is not up to our standards, we don’t expect it to be up to your standards either.

Our headquarters, located in Westfield, Indiana, is home to our 330,000 square foot facility. Our warehouse stores and protects all of our equipment which ensures the structural integrity as well as ensuring that the equipment never faces inclement weather. We also offer power washing and painting services to customize the equipment to fit your needs.

One of the main advantages of buying used equipment is that it is typically more cost-effective, allowing you to get more for your money. In addition, our quick response on quotes and minimal lead time is great if you need a quick turnaround. We ship the equipment from our facility to yours, no delay!

Why partner with Storage Solutions?

We specialize in the sale of both used and new material, seeking to give customers a variety of options. Along with this, our team provides quick and thorough responses on all proposals, allowing you to operate on the shortest project schedule possible.
