Why buy from ShelvingDirect?

As a market that is often crowded it can be hard to identify why you should choose one product over another when looking to purchase a storage solution. Price alone should never be the basis for selection, with cheaper shelving offering little in the way of quality; therefore finding the right product for your needs is essential. Explained below are the most important factors to consider when choosing shelving, as well as the advantages that ShelvingDirect can offer.

  As a company with over 60 years' experience within the storage industry, Shelving Direct has built a team of highly skilled and knowledgeable staff, offering specialist knowledge in the creation and installation of high quality shelving systems. When looking to make your purchase, it pays to consult an established shelving manufacturer with experience as they will be able to provide valuable advice on the types of products you should be considering. If you have an enquiry please feel free to consult an expert from our team who will be able to advise you on the specific racking and shelving solution that will best suit your requirements.

  Although it may be tempting to purchase a cheap racking system, a compromise should never be made on quality when choosing your storage solution. Cheap shelving is usually manufactured from weaker materials that simply won’t last. At ShelvingDirect we focus on designing and manufacturing quality, durable storage solutions that will stand the test of time, having been thoroughly tested to ensure the highest quality possible.

  When considering a new storage system, special attention should be paid to how much weight a shelf can bear, especially if you are looking to buy industrial shelving that may be used to store heavy objects. Our shelving systems are designed to be strong, sturdy and long lasting; created with the best materials, and with no compromise on quality. To put this into perspective, one layer of our industrial shelving can hold up to 500kg; the equivalent weight of two male Grizzly bears! 

  If you are looking to buy shelving for a specific storage space, but cannot find a suitable product to meet your requirements, bespoke shelving may offer the perfect solution. Whether you need garage shelving of a certain width, or industrial shelving that is of a certain height; bespoke shelving can be tailor made to suit your individual storage needs. Here at ShelvingDirect, our friendly shelving specialists will be able to help ensure you find the perfect solution for you.

  Specific shelving suits particular environments. The purpose of industrial racking will be different to that of garage or office shelving, as such each type of shelving we offer has been designed with its intended role in mind. No matter what your storage needs there is a type of shelving that can cater for it. We stock a large range of shelving types to suit most storage requirements and also offer bespoke shelving solutions.

  Before purchasing shelving it is essential that you check whether you will need to collect the item, or if it will be delivered; as an often large item, you do not want the hassle of having to organise the collection of your shelving after buying it. At Shelving Direct we will do all the hard work for you. Our standard shipping will have your chosen products with you in 3-5 working days, ensuring a quick solution to your storage requirements.

If you are looking to purchase shelving, our experienced team of professionals will be able to offer help and advice to ensure that you choose the right product for you. Please call 0845 194 7370 (Mon–Fri 08.00 to 17.30) or email
