Frequently Asked Questions (Click on any question below)
Isn’t all used material handling equipment just a bunch of rusty junk?
That’s like saying all cars, unless they are new, are nothing but junk! It’s simply not true.
There is plenty of junk to be found out there, but it’s our job to find quality product for you whether it’s new or used. Those that take the time to do their homework will find that Kraftwerk’s reputation is second to none within the industry, at providing quality products and services for our clients. At Kraftwerks we have been successfully integrating new and used equipment for over 20 years.
Let’s face it; you only get one chance to make a good first impression. We like to think that if given the opportunity to earn your business, we’ll make you glad you did! This past year we had a record number of existing clients recommend us to their friends, family, and others within the business community. For us at Kraftwerks, that’s pretty exciting stuff.
Furthermore, there are some facilities that contact Kraftwerks for used inventory exclusively. Kraftwerks would never acquire and warehouse a used lot that wasn’t of value and that didn’t have resuable integrity. Lockers, shelving, pallet rack, beams, lifts, conveyors, and other disassembled modular pieces are among the many used items we have stocked in our warehouse. It’s best to contact us via phone and ask a representative what is in the current inventory for used stock and equipment; the quantity and types of used pallet racks, lockers, shelving, lifts,conveyors, tool boxes, drawers, etc. change everyday. Most of the time, these disassemblies are far from disposable, and most of the time, they are needed elsewhere. We will repalletize them and get them ready for pick-up or delivery.
How do I know what products and sizes I need?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE! When you call us, we ask this very same question. But with our knowledge and expertise in every industry and facility, we supply the answer to what products and services you need. We find our what products and what sizes you require, and all other recommendations for placement.
Again, you ask: How do I know what products and sizes I need? Kraftwerks knows.

Do you have used equipment?
YES WE DO! Call us if you are looking for something specific. There is a good chance we may be carrying it in our used inventory. The Used Equipment list is always changing. Used lots are bought and sold on a regular basis. Used material handling equipment is not “rusty old junk”. There is a lot of value in assemblies that may not be used anymore, but are still in good condition. By the way, our used equipment lots? They are always first come, first serve.
