Relocation of your racking can be made easy by using our experienced accredited team of installers, Prior to the works starting a detailed plan as to how long it will take to pull down and how long will it take to transport over and reinstall.
In some cases to make it run smoothly the relocation can be completed in stages so that pallets shipped to the new premises can be put straight away, Also if you are moving into a bigger premises we can supply a complete new set up or supply the extra materials to top up on your existing materials.
A detailed floor plan will also be supplied as to how the new set up is to be installed.

Gmj Racking & Shelving can audit your racking, and will send you back a detailed list of the status of your racking. If your racking is not safe or not up to the latest Australian standards Gmj will send back a detailed report.
When inspecting your racking we look for the following.
Guidance Note Pallet racking operation and maintenance.
Racking should be inspected frequently for damage and overloading, and at least annually to check its integrity.
Are beams overloaded?
A large amount of deflection indicates overloading of the Racking. Where two beams connect at an upright, the Beam Connectors should be parallel. If racking is or has been overloaded, the beam connectors may be deformed (form a ‘V’). There will also be evidence of ‘permanent set’ in unloaded beams. In this situation, the racking should be inspected by a competent person or engineer.
Are beams or welds damaged?
Check for obvious signs of beams being hit by a pallet or forklift. Damaged beams should be replaced. If a beam has been hit and is only showing minor damage, ensure welds are checked by a competent person for cracking.
Are beam connectors or safety clips missing?
Examine beams for damage and replace missing clips.
Replacements must be of a design approved by the equipment manufacturer. If clips are regularly being dislodged, contact the manufacturer or installer to determine why and implement corrective action.
Has a beam popped out of its upright?
If a beam has popped out this will mean it is only suspended on one end connector and could collapse.
Working load limits
Are rack load signs posted?
Ensure bays display the SWL signs provided by the designer / Installer and the rack configurations have not been altered.
Uprights and footplates
Are uprights damaged?
If an upright show significant damage (see Figure 4), is twisted or contains splits or cracks, replace it or splice in a new section.
Splices should be approved by the equipment manufacturer.
If the upright is damaged, replace it and the footplate.
Are splices in good condition?
Check the condition of all splices. They should be above the first beam level, not below 1.5m, and no more than one splice should be between any two adjacent beam levels.
Out of plumb
Is the racking vertical?
Out of plumb racking is usually caused by incorrect installation but also as a result of impact, overloading, or settling of the Floor slab. Contact the manufacturer or installer.
Are racking braces damaged?
Replace bent, horizontal or diagonal braces. For bracing, the Member deviation from a 1m long straight edge in either plane should not exceed 10mm.
Are floor fixings installed?
Check floor fixings are installed and undamaged. If damaged, replace it and the footplate. At least two anchors are required in each.
