At Michaels Global Trading, we specialize in warehouse equipment, assisting in resale, refurbishment, removal, donation, and liquidation.
Warehouses are used for a variety of purposes, from storage to manufacturing. Depending on your company’s purpose, your warehouse may require multiple steps to reach bare walls and clear floors. Fortunately, we work with clients from beginning to end, facilitating everything from organization and packing to the final walk through.
Types of Warehouse Equipment We Manage
At Michaels Global Trading we manage all types of warehouse equipment, from small and mid-sized to large and oversized operations. Some of the typical items we deal with regularly include:
- Moving dollies and hand trucks
- Boltless shelving and racks
- Pallets and pallet racks
- Rolling racks
- Storage systems
- Access ramps
- Lift tables
- Decks and mezzanine structures
- Pallet jacks
- Rolling stairs and ladders
Within the scope of your warehouse equipment, there are multiple parts and pieces coming together. Some of these parts require specific handling and disposal due to local bylaws and recycling regulations. Others may be valuable for reuse. Whatever the case, Michaels Global Trading can help you determine the best plan of action for every asset.
Professional Warehouse Equipment Appraisal
Depending on your reason for disposing of warehouse equipment, you may be in a place to benefit from some return on your initial investment. This equipment is expensive, and many items have a long shelf life, providing opportunity for refurbish, reuse, and resale.
Michaels Global Trading are certified appraisers with experience in warehouse equipment evaluation. We work with a variety of resources to ensure our estimates are accurate and compare to fair market value.
Determining fair market value requires research of other items of the same age and quality, to determine a fair price for sale. Michaels does this — but we don’t stop there. We use multiple avenues to guarantee our clients the best possible resale value on warehouse equipment.
Reasons for Warehouse Equipment Liquidation
There are many reasons a warehouse owner/renter may choose to relocate and dispose of or sell equipment. Michaels Global Trading works with large industrial businesses across Canada and the United States. We see companies choose to sell equipment for many reasons, including:
- Equipment upgrades
- Decommissioned equipment
- Moving warehouses
Whatever your reason for calling warehouse equipment removal and liquidation professionals, Michaels Global Trading can help. We minimize the strain of moving, downsizing or closing your warehouse by taking care of the organization and heavy lifting. Our team will disassemble, package, and prepare your equipment for its destination – whatever that may be. We’re not here to judge, we’re here to get the job done so you can focus on more important things.
Donation of Warehouse Equipment
Have equipment you no longer need but don’t want to deal with the red tape required to disassemble and recycle? Donation is another green solution, allowing you to reduce your carbon footprint as you dispose of unneeded warehouse equipment.
Liquidation of Warehouse Equipment
Companies liquidate for many reasons, the most common being return on initial investment. Depending on your reason for liquidation and any deadlines you have, you may choose to evaluate your possessions using one of three different methods.
- Fair Market Value – Fair market value is derived from similar items being sold locally. It is based on the age and quality of your equipment, online journals, price listings, and our personal sales records.
- Orderly Liquidation Value – If you were to auction your warehouse equipment and had the time to wait for the highest bidder, it could be evaluated at an orderly liquidation value. Having the time to spare offers you the potential for a higher evaluation because you can wait for the right buyer.
- Forced Liquidation Value – When you are forced into liquidation for financial reasons, or timing, you are forced to take the fastest bid, rather than the highest. This evaluation doesn’t offer the benefit of waiting for winning bids, but it does guarantee quick results.
When we help a client liquidate a warehouse, we carefully appraise each item and strive to ensure you get the best price on every piece of equipment that sells.
Disposal of Warehouse Equipment
Warehouse equipment takes a beating, and some of it isn’t worth salvaging or selling. If you have equipment ready for the trash, it’s important to dispose of it properly. Certain products containing metals and toxins must be sent to the right disposal facilities to protect the environment. Michaels Global Trading is up to date on all local bylaws and guidelines involving warehouse equipment.
Recycling of Warehouse Equipment
If an item isn’t valuable enough to liquidate but has too many reusable parts to dispose of, recycling is the best option. Recycling warehouse equipment is an eco-friendly option to minimize clutter, remove decommissioned equipment, and protect the earth.
Not every element of your warehouse equipment is recyclable. Some parts may require disposal, while others can be disassembled for the recycling plant. We have the tools and knowledge to organize, disassemble, and designate which components go where and are processed how, so you don’t get stuck with any liability involving illegal disposal.
