STEP 1: Survey
The first step in any pallet rack repair process is a properly executed survey. A proper rack repair survey will identify the pallet rack components that show visible signs of pallet rack damage or distress and are ranked according to severity.
These surveys must be performed by a qualified and properly trained pallet rack professional who is skilled in pallet rack damage inspection and repair solutions. An accurate rack repair survey will include detailed information such as:
- Identify the location of the pallet rack damage
- Record visible rack damage
- Select the correct repair solution
In most cases, we can classify all pallet rack damage in one of the three levels of severity as follows:
- Critical/severe rack damage - Immediate action required
- Significant deformations greater than ½”
- Missing or broken components
- Broken welds or torn metal
- Original capacity has been severely compromised
- Moderate rack damage - Additional attention recommended
- General deformations up to ½”
- Slightly bent or twisted components
- Original capacity has been compromised
- Light rack damage - Observation recommended
- Cosmetic and light surface damage
- Keep under observation for worsening condition
- No immediate action required
STEP 2: Quote
Once the survey is complete, we will provide a proposal that details the location of each damaged pallet rack, level of severity for each rack, description of the recommended repairs, and cost for the repair project.
Materials and labor costs will be itemized and a total cost will be provided. Rack repairs can be broken down into phases to help keep within a specific budget.
The benefits of repairing warehouse pallet rack damage are summarized below for your review:

They have installed thousands of repair kits and know that safety always comes first.
