Please communicate and schedule a time with one of our sales people if you want to come on-site. We always help walk-ins but it is best practice to set an appointment so everyone’s time (especially yours) is use most efficiently and effectively.

We encourage you to act quickly and secure the equipment you want. We have 17 sales representatives nationwide. That means the most popular items go quickly. Once your quote is confirmed as an order and payment has been made we honor that order.
When you are on-site, we accompany you around the warehouse and yard and help you find the equipment you want. The warehouse has many people working. The warehouse materials are heavy and can be dangerous. After your purchase, you have options for installation and delivery. We can help you set up your rack, we can deliver/coordinate trucking the materials to your location and set up your warehouse equipment. If you prefer picking up and setting up your own material, then we coordinate a pickup time with you. When you arrive to our location, our team will load up your truck and give you a BOL (bill of lading).
“We took the 2-hour drive to pick it up and it was ready for us, the transaction took 5 minutes. The conveyor was much better than the original ones on the saw, a great value and we were treated like we were buying a hundred of them by Conesco, just for our little old one conveyor. Good company.”
Used warehouse equipment sales questions and answers
Buying used warehouse equipment can be a great savings. Used materials handling equipment and shelving can be found at a much lower price than new equipment despite being in similar condition. Before you buy used warehouse equipment, here are a few questions to ask.
What are the sizes, capacities, and styles of the used warehouse equipment?
The first question to ask about the used pallet racks you are considering is about the specifications. This is the information you need to know about sizes, capacities, and style of equipment for your warehouse. We provide this information in PDF format, over the phone and in person. We also welcome you to our Denver sale location to verify the specifications in person.
What is the condition of the used warehouse equipment?
The next question to ask before buying used warehouse equipment is about the condition. When you contact Conesco about one of our warehouse liquidations, we send you photos of the equipment via email. If the condition is stellar or “like new” we definitely say so.
The bottom line for us is this:
- We only sell equipment that maintains structural integrity so it still functions safely and up to the size’s weight capacity.
- We encourage you to ask for more photos of the materials and to communicate your expectations of the appearance.
- Racking and warehouse materials are metal so rust and imperfect aesthetics are common with used materials but structural integrity, safety, and proper sizing is important to us.
- We do fabricate materials to adjust the sizing to fit your needs. In this case, sometimes a two color variation can be seen on items. For example, uprights where a silver footplate is put on the bottom of uprights after we cut them down to adjust the height.
- If aesthetics is important to you, then we can work to find used materials of your preferred color and condition.
- We can can also quote new materials. New warehouse materials come straight from the manufacturer and are in pristine condition.
Does the warehouse liquidation company have a great reputation?
This might be the most important question. You don’t want to drive a long way to purchase used warehouse equipment only to discover you were given half-truths over the phone. You don’t want to discover the used pallet racking was taken down by amateurs and damaged in the process.
