Used mezzanines are most commonly used as a semi-permanent floor structure that is installed within a facility between its existing stories. This is a cost efficient way of utilizing the unused vertical space within your storage facility. A used mezzanine allows for increased storage capacity without increasing the square footage of your property. Additional space would mean additional property tax, but a used mezzanine wouldn’t be considered additional space.(click here to view entire article)

Used mezzanines can be custom made for your specific warehouse facility. We design your mezzanine with CAD drawings, ensuring that it is built to your exact specifications. Our professional sales team has designed many mezzanine systems in the past 22 years, and they will work with you to pick the most effective option for maximizing your storage space.


Mezzanines can also be expanded without starting from scratch, or building from bottom up. With the proper design your mezzanine can grow with your business. ASI can install a used mezzanine or expand an existing one in as little as one day. This minimizes the amount of time the installation is disrupting daily activities within that facility.


As you can see above, there are many different styles of used mezzanines to choose from. Along with those options, there are also different types of flooring, stairs/ladders, railings, safety gates, and catwalks to choose from. Which of these you will utilize depends on your mezzanine, where it is located within your facility, and what it is being used for.


ASI currently utilizes several used mezzanines in our own storage facility in East Providence, RI. Our new office area is made of a used mezzanine with storage above, and we have another mezzanine for storage right next to one of our loading docks. As far as buying used material handling equipment goes, stick with ASI. We have been in the business of buying and selling quality used equipment for over 20 years, and our used mezzanines are cleaned and inspected prior to shipment to ensure your satisfaction. Our dedicated sales team will work with you to provide solutions to your material handling and storage problems.
