United Rack Services (URS) offers a comprehensive, independent evaluation of the overall condition of your warehouse or D/C.  Why the emphasis on safety? Why URS? Our program actually saves your organization money by identifying deficiencies in your racking system. This program is not simply a fork truck damage assessment. It is a comprehensive safety evaluation. Our trademarked process identifies problems within your system and provides  corrective measures your company can take to correct the issues before the  situation becomes critical. The savings realized by preventing a rack failure  or other incident is substantial.
