If you are thinking about starting up your own warehouse or storage system, you must know that the success or failure of a warehouse depends on how organized the warehouse is. If you’ve done your research you will find a lot of talk about “storage systems,” what type of storage systems people use, and plenty of discussion on what type of storage system is best.
The storage system (also known as a storage management system or warehouse management system) can make or break your warehouse, so you need to be aware of your storage systems.
What Exactly Are Storage Systems for Warehouses?
Your warehouse’s storage system or warehouse management system is the total method in which your warehouse operated. A storage system encompasses all parts of the warehouse including what types of racks and shelving you use, how you load and unload your warehouse, the order of storage and so forth. The storage system is your warehouse’s game plan on how to take care of daily warehouse tasks in an efficient and organized manner. When it comes to warehouses, organization and proper methodology result in bigger profit margins.
Benefits of Using a Storage System for Your Warehouse
There are several benefits to implementing a storage system in your warehouse including:
- More organization: A key component to any properly run warehouse.
- More floor space: The more floor space you have, the more you can store and unload, the more money you make
- More efficient warehouse: Efficiency is profitability
- Safer for employees: Storage systems create an order that helps keep employees safe

What kind of warehouse equipment do you buy?
We are looking to purchase large quantities of pallet racking and most other warehouse equipment.
Do you serve my location?
CONESCO serves the entire United States from multiple locations.
How quickly can we get started?
It might be quicker than you think! The first step is to give us a call or have us call you. Once we have a good understanding of your unique situation, we typically provide a quote within 5 days and will schedule a time with you to have one of our team members come visit your site.
Will you buy and remove everything from our warehouse?
Our specialty is in used pallet racks (uprights, beams, wiredecks, pallet supports), pallet rack accessories (like guide/ guard rail, netting), conveyor systems, mezzanines, and pick modules. If your warehouse also includes different material like
- shrink wraps or
then we can buy/ remove those as well.
Sometimes material is in bad shape or is a very uncommon size or outdated brand. In some of these cases we do not purchase the materials, however we still can provide you with our teardown services to remove the materials from your warehouse. We encourage everyone to reach out so we can better understand what is in your warehouse and what your intentions are. Once we have a good understanding, we are happy to provide you with our recommendations, even if that means not using us.
Will you clean up after you have finished with the shelving and equipment removal?
Absolutely! Removing used warehouse equipment is a messy job. All debris will be properly disposed of and the floors swept.
We are still operating. Can you work around us?
Yes! There are a few things that will need to happen in order to ensure everyone’s safety and some other items need communicated like an agreed upon timeline. It’s true, an operating warehouse will sometimes slow down a teardown project. But, we understand it’s necessary to avoid disruption of your business during the warehouse shelving and equipment removal process.
How long will the used equipment removal process take?
We get that question all the time! It depends on many factors such as:
- will the warehouse be shut down or,
- will it still be operating?
- How much material is there?
- Are the uprights bolted down to the ground?
Best practice is to give yourself multiple months of time in planning so that way you provide a buffer for your project to finish according to a timeline. Getting a full count of the materials and good pictures is a great way to start the process of evaluating the decommission of your warehouse.
Will you leave holes in the floor or walls after the removal process?
No. Removing floor anchors does create holes but we take responsibility for grinding them down to be flush with the cement or fill them with cement epoxy.
