There are many reasons why you may have to adjust, move, or even relocate your pallet racking system to adapt and grow with your business. Whether you’re moving to a larger facility, better location, or just looking to rearrange your racking within your current warehouse.
Relocating warehouses can be a stressful and costly endeavour, so it’s important to be as organised and prepared as possible, as well as taking opportunities to make use of your existing assets such as your pallet racking system. As pallet racking plays such a vital role in the distribution chain, it is essential that your pallet racking system is professionally installed, certified, and used to the specifications of the manufacturer in your new location in order to prevent costly accidents, inventory loss, and even injury.
If you’re considering a warehouse relocation, follow our top tips for moving pallet racking to ensure that your warehouse remains functional and compliant.
Moving Your Pallet Racking
Pallet racking is a significant investment that can increase the storage capacity of your warehouse as well as improve organisation and boost productivity. Fortunately, pallet racking can be easily dismantled, transported, and reinstalled in your new location, ensuring that you can reap the benefits of your investment for years to come.
Utilising your existing racking system in your new warehouse will help to save money during the relocation process, plus, most pallet racking systems can be reconfigured or added to to make the most of your new space. So, if you’re considering a warehouse relocation, talk to your pallet racking manufacturer about moving your racking system with you.
Although moving your pallet racking to your new location can save you money, incorrectly installed racks will end up costing you money in damages and product loss caused by an inevitable rack failure. For this reason, it is essential that your racking system is professionally dismantled and installed in your new location to ensure that they remain safe for use.
Additionally, you will need to ensure that your pallet racking is certified for safe use in your new location. Note: weight loading signs for your pallet racking system can only be provided by the pallet racking manufacturer in accordance with Australian Standards AS4084:2012 Steel Storage Racking.

New Warehouse Layout
Whether you’re relocating for more space or a better location, it’s likely that your new warehouse has a different layout to your existing space. This means that the configuration and layout of your storage systems used in your old warehouse may not make the most out of your new space.
Taking the time to plan a new warehouse layout that makes optimal use of your new space while utilising your existing racking system can increase productivity and storage capacity, as well as streamline your warehouse processes.

Adding To Your Racking System
Relocating your existing racking system is the perfect opportunity to assess your current and future storage needs in order to ensure your racks are equipped to accommodate future growth. Many pallet racking systems can be added to to increase storage capacity and make better use of your new space.
Additionally, there are a number of different racking systems that can be used in combination to increase storage capacity and productivity in the warehouse including specialised racks such as carpet, tyre, cable, and sheet racking.
Or, if maximum storage space is what you need, consider installing a warehouse mezzanine floor. This can be used in a combination with pallet racking and shelving systems to dramatically increase floor and storage space in your facility by making use of the unused air space above your existing racks.
