When Walmart closed down here years ago, I bought some of the very heavy duty commercial metal shelving units from them I got four ten foot high
units, two twenty four inch times eight footers, one thirty inch wide times eight foot, and one four foot wide by eight foot, all with three shelves
to make the ten foot high. I cut one down to six foot high for our basement. They hold about two thousand pounds per shelf, very strong commercial
units. Twenty five bucks a complete section used. They came with treated 2x8 pieces to make shelves between the side runners. I priced them up a
while back, they run about two fifty a section for the ten footers two foot wide but that does not include the two bys to make the shelves. I found
those on line.
I also got twelve commercial shelving units from the fish and wildlife auction for a hundred fifty bucks, really heavy duty with four shelves per
unit, they are one foot deep, those are in great shape too, I have them for storage in the basement, shed, and closet for cangoods for our pantry.
Thirty six feet of shelving for a hundred fifty bucks. The same brand in the commercial catalog runs two hundred thirty a unit, I saved eighty bucks
on one unit from new price then got eleven free.
Try finding a big store that is going out of business and buy their warehouse shelving.
