Automotive parts and equipment can be difficult to organize and manage without the right storage system. Automotive companies require different types of storage equipment to cater for a broad range of items.
Automotive equipment and machinery can be large and cumbersome, requiring heavy-duty and robust shelves. Small auto part components need a high-density storage solution with multiple compartments. Since automotive equipment is constantly evolving, garages, professional facilities, and parts manufacturers must seek versatile automotive storage units to meet their growing demands.
There are several efficient storage equipment options for automotive businesses. Auto parts retailers, equipment manufacturers, or an automotive dealership may benefit from a uniform automotive storage solution. However, garages and automotive service centers likely need a combination of industrial storage equipment.
At Shelving + Rack Systems, Inc., we stock a variety of industrial shelving, helping you improve your automotive inventory control. Our high-quality products enable you to develop a more efficient and productive facility. Our high-density storage equipment can open up floor space, creating a more organized and safer working environment.
We supply the automotive industry with new and used shelving, racks, and replacement parts. Some of our most effective storage options include:
Bin storage systems are essential for individual automotive parts storage. Equipped with modular drawers, they allow you to quickly organize and identify parts and tools. This is critical in busy auto shops where workers don’t have time to waste searching for particular nuts, bolts, or screws.
We stock a variety of economical flexi-bins storage solutions, from medium-sized bin pick systems to chrome wire shelving with giant hopper bins. Our AkroBin wire systems are an excellent option for auto shops and parts retailers. They are available in a variety of shelf configurations with three available sizes.
The chrome wire frame is durable and resistant to corrosion. The uniquely designed bins feature a curved bottom hopper front, providing quick and easy access to small parts. The bins are available in several colors, giving you the option to color coordinate inventory.
Boltless shelves are some of the most versatile storage options available to automotive companies. They are configured without nuts, bolts, or shelving clips for fast and straightforward assembly.
The most important consideration with boltless racks is load capacity. If you intend on reconfiguring boltless units for different product SKUs, you must ensure they are capable of supporting the inventory weight.
For example, your lightweight boltless tire rack may not be stable enough to hold bulky tires. If you want to convert the unit, it’s important to verify it can support the increased weight.
Our 200A low-profile boltless units are lightweight but durable. Built from industrial-strength steel, these shelves feature double rivet beams at the base and along the top, providing a stable and rigid structure. They are available in an open configuration, providing direct access to goods from all sides.
You’ll need high-grade industrial steel shelving if you regularly handle heavy items, like engine parts or machinery. An industrial storage shelving rollout is often the most efficient storage solution for automotive manufacturers and auto servicing facilities.
Our 200B industrial shelving is designed to store heavy items, from large exhausts to engine transmissions. Shelves adjust in 1 to ½ inch increments for versatility. These units are available in heights ranging from 3 to 12 feet, allowing you to make use of vertical space.
Choose between particle or laminate board decking. Particleboard is a reliable option for general storage. Laminate board is moisture resistant, making it a more popular option for industrial environments. Each shelf can support weights of up to 1,100 pounds, facilitating bulk storage.
Mobile shelving and mobile cabinets provide an excellent way to transport automotive parts throughout a warehouse or distribution facility. Mobile units can also afford automotive businesses with additional storage to supplement a more comprehensive pallet racking system.
We stock a broad selection of mobile shelving units for the automotive industry. Our 3-sided trucks are built from a combination of 12 gauge steel and iron, providing durability and longevity in harsh environments. Each truck can support up to 3,600 pounds, ensuring you can easily transport heavy machinery.
For lighter duty storage, consider our 4-shelf mobile carts. These units are available in open or closed configurations. The zinc-plated finish ensures they are corrosion resistant, even in cool and harsh conditions. All carts have built-in braking casters, allowing you to secure them in place when they are not in use.
These mobile units are suitable for light to medium duty storage. The shelves can also be used to hold bin dividers for small automotive parts.
The right shelving system improves product visibility and allows faster access to parts. It also minimizes the chance of product damage and lost or misplaced inventory. At Shelving + Rack Systems, Inc., we can help you secure a storage system that improves the efficiency and productivity of your automotive business.
We stock a range of options across various price points, ensuring you can find an effective combination for your facility. We also provide quality installation services, so you don’t have to worry about reconfiguring your warehouse or garage. If you need help redesigning your storage facility, our design team can provide you with a number of layout options.
