Costco Whalen Industrial Rack


This Whalen Industrial Rack from Costco is awesome! If you’re looking to maximize space inside your garage, see if one of these will fit. I’ve got one of those TRINITY 5-Tier Heavy Duty Wire Shelving Racks from Costco in the garage & it’s fantastic. The difference between the 2 is the one I have is Chrome with wheels, while this one has a black powder coat & fixed. These are a little more industrial than mine because these can handle 2,000 pounds per shelf as opposed to mine, which is only 800 pounds per shelf. I don’t how they tested this rack by loading it down with 8,000 pounds (2,000 x 4 shelves), but I’d sure like to see that.

The only drawback as I mentioned before is this does not have wheels. If you are buying it for it’s intended use, you shouldn’t need wheels because you wouldn’t want that much weight to be mobile. Here are a few more stats about this rack……

  • Black Powder Coated Finish
  • Heavy Gauge Steel Frame
  • Four Adjustable Shelves (nice to make taller shelves)
  • Easy Assembly
  • 77″W x 72″H x 24″D
  • 2,000 pounds per shelf

If you’re looking for a similar rack with only 3 shelves (more space per shelf), check this rack out on Amazon. It’s almost the exact same size at 77″W x 72″H x 24″D except it’s got 3 shelves……

Price: $149.99, Item: 956886

    1. Sorry to hear that. Usually Costco is pretty good about vetting that out because they don’t want returns. Were you looking for parts or to return an item?

    1. It doesn’t look like the company Whalen sells the shelves directly. I checked their website. You can contact them via their “Customer Care” page & ask. They do have a note that says “NOTE: We may not be able to provide replacement parts for pre-assembled items. A fee may apply for Additional Parts and requests”. That sounds like they might be able to sell the shelves individually, since this is not a pre-assembled item. You can also call & ask. 1-866-942-5362. I tried calling but got a busy signal. Hopefully you can get further than me. Let me know if you are able to find out about this question. Hope that helps!

  1. I am interested in knowing if i can purchase just the shelving to connect two units of shelving together from the distributor or the manufacturer.
