Used Material Handling Equipment
Companies do not have to compromise either material handling inventory or the quality of their material handling tools to save money during the current recession. The same tools available to safely transport supplies, products, and materials and streamline process flow can be purchased in near-factory condition from a used material handling reseller such as Easy Rack. Many times these products offer savings as much as 40% off factory prices, and they perform so effectively that from a functional perspective they are virtually indistinguishable from their brand new counterparts.
As more companies become increasingly cautious with their procurement budgets as the bad news of the recession continues to bombard us all, the good news is that used material handling equipment allows companies to obtain the right tools for the right jobs in order to prevent their warehousing operations and turnaround cycle from being affected by negative events in the outside world. Both by contributing to a safer working environment and reducing streamlining man hours, companies can generate ongoing savings by making their facilities less prone to injury-related liability or costly overtime due to ineffective and/or outdated material handling equipment.
One thing that is almost certain to lead a workforce into costly overtime or weekend production is an excessive amount of manual lifting and carrying of supplies. Even the strongest of workers eventually tire, and injury is always a risk to contend with when fatigue wears down alertness. Used material handling equipment at a discount can cost-competitively replace this strenuous-and sometimes dangerous –work with efficient machinery designed for specific purposes of securing, elevating, or rolling materials across warehouse floors. Something as simple as a hand trucks or standard dollies takes the strain off the back when moving a crate. Used pallet jacks make it possible to rapidly move supplies off trucks to used pallet racks and industrial storage shelves.
Larger payloads can be handled with heavy duty used material handling equipment such as fork trucks, jib cranes, and used drum handling equipment. Special equipment and sensitive supplies can be moved about undamaged with specialized used material handling carts and utility carts specifically designed to protect their contents. With heavy-duty used material handling equipment such as bridge cranes, assembly lines and storage facilities can move products with three-dimensional handling previously available only in human hands. Other popular devices are used lift tables and cantilever hoists with a load capacity engineered to move the heaviest and most awkward items rapidly and safely with greatly reduced risk of product damage and human injury
Shipping and receiving is another vital artery of business that requires a well-managed, smooth process flow to earn the organization money. When loading docks are unorganized or unsafe, or when there simply are not enough tools to load and unload trucks safely and efficiently, process flow stagnates and the company begins to lose money. A number of used material handling units can quickly turn such an area into a well-oiled machine of motivated morale and time to market delivery power. Forklift attachments and strapping machines help keep odd-sized payloads and fragile equipment from falling to the concrete below. Used floor scales and stretch wrap machines can eliminate the need for a separate step in packaging products by simply making it part of the shipping cycle.
