Scrap Car Racking

Cantilever Racking is a great way of storing scrap cars. A scrap car rack can increase the space in your yard by 25% by going upwards! For the footprint of 1 car, you can store up to 4 cars high. 

Benefits of Scrap Car Racking

1) Store 2, 3 or 4 cars high
  2) Single or double sided
  3) Free site visit & layout with no obligation to buy
  4) Makes vehicles easier to locate and access
  5) Help avoid accidental damage to the cars
  6) Height adjustable arms

The cars are easily moved via a fork lift truck, and are less likely to suffer damage to the panels or parts once in place.
