Maximised Space Utilisation
Safety and Compliance
Our Warehouse Storage and Racking Design Service Will Optimise Your Space
Quickline is proud to be able to offer the best possible design service whatever the size of the project, from a small scheme to a large-scale development, offering a vast array of solutions. Across every conceivable industry and sector, we can install shelving and racking in standard configurations or a bespoke design to suit your company’s unique requirements.
Our other area of expertise is in the relocation of your racking and shelving systems. We can dismantle your current system and relocate it in your new facility, even designing and implementing modifications where needed, regardless of whether your new warehouse is on the same trading estate or the other side of the nation. Our professional, SEMA-accredited team will ensure it is constructed to meet health and safety regulations and offer maintenance and repair services going forward.
An integral part of the design is workflow optimisation, where the layout is designed to streamline operations, from the receipt of goods to storage and eventual shipping, thereby minimising travel time and eliminating bottlenecks. Safety is another high priority, and this involves ensuring clear aisle spacing, proper signage, emergency exits and adherence to load capacities. The unique requirements of every business mean customisation is a key aspect of warehouse design services, with solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of each business based on the type of goods stored, inventory volume and specific operational procedures – especially if warehouse management software (WMS) and automated systems are needed.
With over 14 different types of racking and shelving solutions plus mezzanine flooring, our design specialists are sure to find the right storage for your business, including if a mezzanine floor will exploit unused cubic area for additional retail, manufacturing or storage space. After a site visit to assess the requirements and look to maximise space and efficiency, our design team will present the suggested design, with 3D models to help you visualise the installation, a no-obligation quote and a proposed timeline for delivery and implementation.
A warehouse relocation can be a challenging time for your business, but with the right planning, it can run extremely smoothly with our expert team taking care of the hard work. We can undertake labour-only projects for clients – including dismantling and re-installation of racking systems. Our process is very similar to our design procedure as we can ensure the new site’s layout is ideal for your business using existing racking where possible. Inventory has to be removed to allow for a swift dismantling, and it is possible to move in stages to allow for the current warehouse clearance and re-installation of the racking to store the moved inventory at the new site. We re-install using new floor bolts and fixings ensuring the racking meets safety standards.
