How To Use Cantilever Racking

Eric Thovson (ET) from the Sales department explains cantilever racking and why it’s an excellent solution for heavy duty storage shelving in a variety of different applications.

For more information and to see more, check out our Cantilever Racking Page.

Featured Client: GPM Inc.

GPM Inc, Headquartered in Duluth, MN makes use of SJF’s “Good-as-New” Cantilever Racks to store steel components (bar stock, pipes, etc.)  GPM manufactures and distributes the toughest, most reliable submersible and horizontal slurry pumps found anywhere in the world…and they’re located right here in Northern MN – who knew?

GPM called SJF because they were looking for a solution for organizing their extra building materials to get it off the ground and out of the way. They evaluated both new and used cantilever racks. Rhonda (their SJF Salesperson) took pictures of the used Monarch cantilever racks that we had on-site and sent them to GPM.  They liked what they saw, and were able to save around 40% off new prices on these used cantilever racks.

SJF Road Crew: Cantilever Overstock!

Lodi Cantilever Fresh Off the Truck

Lodi Cantilever Fresh Off the Truck

The past week has brought more cantilever rack into our yard at SJF than we have seen in an entire year!  Two large purchases; one local and one on the West Coast, have brought in large quantities of mint condition cantilever.

Our last purchase of this style and size cantilever barely hit our yard before it was sold and loaded onto a customers truck.

As expected, this is no different, with multiple orders against this material already.  This rack is moving very quickly, so act fast if you want in on this latest purchase!

SJF Road Crew: Busy Few Weeks at SJF

The end of April/beginning of May has been a busy time here at SJF.  The last month has brought in equipment from across the board, including conveyor, pallet rack, rack systems, and cantilever.  April started out with a string of local buys.  A large retail store closed multiple locations across the Minneapolis metro, and we were able to jump on some great condition conveyor.  This includes 8 Best Flex conveyors and 500ft of 18” Skate-wheel conveyor as well.

Featured Equipment: Roll-Out Racks

SpaceSaver Steel Roll-out Racks
These racks are not only hard-to-find in used condition – but also hard to find used in this good of condition.  Similar to cantilever rack – these are used to store long bar or pipe stock.  These racks however, function quite differently.  To store or retrieve materials from the rack, an employee has to crank out a “drawer” on the unit that is then accessbile by crane from above. Each insividual “drawer” or “shelf” can be accessed independantly from the others, and offers very safe and secure storage.

4 ea. Currently Available

  • 4200#/Shelf Capacity
  • Each ‘shelf’ is 36″ deep
  • Cost When New: $14,000 ea.
  • Used, As-Is Price: $9,995 ea.
