We may well have just experience the hottest August day since 2003 but do bear in mind that Christmas is around the corner. Being prepared for Seasonal Peaks requires warehousing managers to plan ahead and ensure adequate provision is available for the build up of stocks ready for the December and January retail peaks.
At Avatan Handling Equipment, we carry rental stocks of stillages and roll containers. Our rental fleet of Cage Pallets, Postracks and Roll Containers, stored in our Taplow and Stevenage storage yards are available for long or short term hire.
Euro 91 Cage Pallets are ideal for rental purposes as they are fully collapsible and may be economically and efficiently transported throughout the UK. These versatile cage pallets, with sheeted steel base and mesh sides, fold flat for empty storage and transportation but may be re-assembled within seconds ready for use. Stackable four units high and fitted with a half drop gate on one long side, these cages may be used for storage or distribution purposes. Hypacages are also available for this purpose.
Avatan also offer two styles of demountable Postrack. The first being rectangular and ideal as an alternative to conventional pallet racking in that they will safely carry 1200mm x 1000mm 1350mm high palletised loads. Unlike conventional pallet racking however, the Postrack may be block stacked to make best use of limited space. The second Postrack is squarer and offers an excellent means for storing rolls of materials or underlay. It lends itself to carrying longer lengths of extruded products and again may be safely and securely stacked, unstacked, dismantled and stored.
Roll containers are also like proverbial gold dust in the pre-Christmas build up. Avatan offer four sided mesh security roll containers, also for sale or hire.
Avatan invite Warehouse Managers to plan ahead and not to leave planning their peak until it is upon them. Wanting things ‘Yesterday’ tends to leave buyers disappointed. If you do expect to need storage equipment over the months running up to Christmas and the January Sales, please call Avatan today.
