Other services

Distribution Maintenance offer a broad range of additional services including warehouse racking repairs, installations, dismantling of racking, warehouse inspections, security fencing and bespoke steel fabrication. We can also source both new and refurbished racking protectors for your warehouse.

Our engineers comply with SEIRS (Storage Equipment Installers Registration Scheme) standards to provide peace of mind regarding health and safety.

Case Studies

We have provided engraved plates for transit equipment for a range of business clients such as local authorities, logistics companies and hospitals. Our engraving services are ideal for electrical companies, transport companies (e.g. rail and bus), wholesalers, manufacturers and retailers.

How does our engraving service work?

We request your wording in writing at the time of your order. We then set up the artwork and provide a proof to you for approval before commencing production.

We recommend allowing a couple of days for set up.

When do we pay?

A deposit of 25% is taken with the order and the balance taken on the day of delivery, or completion of the work for collection. We accept all major debit and credit cards and Paypal.

We offer volume discounts for bulk orders. You can collect your engraved equipment from us or we can deliver your engraved plates and plaques direct to you. Just ask us for a quote and your preference for delivery or collection

Fitting services

We offer a fitting service so your plates can be fixed to your transit equipment or to any transit equipment purchased from us.

Health and safety

Health and safety laws require that warehouses carry out regular pallet racking safety inspections and this is where we can help. All our work and equipment supplied is designed to comply with the following directives:

  • Health and Safety Executive HSG76 regarding warehousing and storage
  • EN1629 Steel static storage systems specification of storage equipment 8.8
  • SEMA Code of practice for the use of static pallet racking 8.4 Rack protection

When damage to your racking occurs we can quickly assist to ensure your warehouse is fully operational again as soon as possible. The important thing is to take action immediately to minimise any risks to your staff or goods.

Repairs and installation

Your storage systems will be repaired and installed to the highest SEIRS standards by our engineers safely and efficiently.

  • We can often respond same day to any time critical repairs required.
  • We repair and install all the following types of pallet racking storage systems: Wide Aisle, Double Deep, Drive In.
  • Other types of storage and warehouse systems can also be repaired and supplied such as: Small Parts and Picking, Garment Hanging, Cantilever Racking.

It makes financial and environmental sense to repair your racking where possible, rather than buying new racking, so call us for a quote today to see how much you can save.

Inspections

Keeping up with health and safety requirements is essential so let our experienced and professional team audit your racking and storage systems to ensure you have a safe warehouse operation.

  • We check for any damaged racking and can advise where additional rack protectors are advisable to minimise future damage.
  • We can provide an impartial, monthly warehouse inspection service at competitive rates to give you added piece of mind.

Inspection

A full audit and risk analysis of the secured area to be partitioned will be undertaken by our expert team in order to find the best solution to fulfil your needs.

Fitting

Distribution Maintenance will be able to custom build the security fencing to ensure the designated area if fully secure and our skilled team will fit the fencing with minimal disruption to your operation, ensuring all health and safety standards are fully adhered to in the process.

Handrails

The use of steel handrails can be used for protection and walkways in warehouses and we can design them to suit your specific needs.

Metal crash barriers and Armco protectors

Vehicles such as forklift trucks moving around sites and warehouses can cause damage to walls, loading decks and security fencing.

Crash barriers avoid costly damage and reduce the risk of accidental damage. They can also be used to ensure the safety of your personnel. Check out our section on refurbished and new racking protectors which may also be of interest.

  • Armco

Equipment Modification

In addition to roll cage modifications, Distribution Maintenance can make the necessary modifications to all other associated equipment, including trolleys, stillages, post pallets and plastic containers.

Rectification

Distribution Maintenance can carry out the required modifications to your equipment, either on your own site or the equipment can be dropped off to our dedicated repair centre.

Unique rental scheme

Our unique rental scheme offers a real difference as we focus on the “True Rental Cost” (TRC) as explained below.

There are two types of cost involved in renting a roll cage:

  • Quoted Rental Charge – calculated as a daily rate per cage;
  • Cost of Terminal Losses –  calculated as the cost charged for every cage not returned to the renter, or not found during a periodic audit.

When the two charges are aggregated a True Rental Cost (TRC) per cage is produced.

Our rental model uses our unique recovery service to bring down your True Rental Cost and minimise any nasty surprise charges at the end of your cage rental period.

Benefits

These are primarily driven by the way that our service is aimed to protect your rental fleet of cages. Our service has the following benefits versus other rental cage providers:

  • Unique access to the recovery services provided by ACQSYS Supply Chain Solutions Limited.
  • We find and recover some of the rental cages you may have lost. We keep those cages and de-hire them from your account.
  • At the end of the rental period, any shortfall in cages returned to us is offset by the number we recovered.
  • Our daily rental charge will not necessarily always be higher but the recovery rate will always bring the TRC down.
  • Our rental periods can be completely tailored to your needs.
