the process

Initial Contact


The initial call will be to obtain some basic information, such as the location of the project, the company, contact details and a brief summary of what you are looking for. The advisor will then arrange to meet with you and visit the site in order to discuss more in depth your requirements and how we may be able to help you.

The Free Site Survey

A site survey is a crucial part of the design stage as it allows us to gain an insight before creating any plans. During the site survey we will inspect the site where the proposed works are to be carried out to ensure the site is safe for the installation of racking and identify any potential problem areas early in the process. We will look at the space you have and after gathering information about your overall operations, flow of goods, goals and budget. We will work with you to achieve the optimal solution for you your operations.

The Free Plans and Drawings


After the site survey is complete and we have gathered all necessary information, are able to produce alternative layouts with the advantage of the Computer-Aided Design software AutoCAD. This advanced drafting software system allows realistic visualisation your facility once fitted out with your chosen new racking system.

Once the plans have been drawn up and prices have been put together you will receive a bespoke racking proposal which has been put together for you. This is a detailed document that should be read carefully and thoroughly. There are two main sections in this document:



This section would contain a drawing preview of your chosen racking system layout, followed by a brief description of the project. It goes on to provide more in depth information about the racking system and components, revealing quantities, measurements, types and load bearing capacity. Health and safety information is also provided as well as CDM regulations, before installation information.


Here you will find a budget quotation to supply, deliver and install your new pallet racking system. The installation program is also listed followed by lead time, payment terms and quote validity. A separate quotation for supplementary options is also found in this section, for such things as protection barriers, mesh cordoning and weight spreading ancillaries.

The site survey allows us to provide the most accurate price, after discussing your requirements and advising you on the various options available too you.
