more space, less clutter
A large automotive dealership had so many types of parts to store that proper tire storage just wasn't on their list of priorities. Eventually, the only space left for tires was a small mezzanine above the tire balancing area. It soon became obvious that this method wasn't going to work. So, they installed a high density system for storing tires in less space without having to expand their facility. (read more about high density storage systems)
traditional VS. high density storage
Limited access to mezzanine space led the auto dealership to store tires by floor stacking and traditional static tire racks. In both of these options, tires had to be manhandled and access selectivity was constricted, which led to smaller inventory sizes. With the increasing size of their business, it became obvious that these methods just weren't working.
The auto dealership decided to install a high density mobile racking system that would allow them to fully maximize their mezzanine space capacity while still allowing full accessibility. The new high density mobile racking system accommodates existing storage and recovers wasted aisle space with its innovative design, so the dealership saved money by not expanding their facility. The mobile racks have one moving aisle instead of the multiple aisles that are required for static racking, so employees have plenty of space to store and retrieve tires with no hassle. It's also easy to create an access aisle, with manual, hand crank, and powered options available.
The high density system was able to double the storage capacity for tires in the same amount of space as static racking. Now the dealership is even able to keep tires for special sales events in stock without sacrificing other inventory items. And the mobile storage racks can store more than just tires: they can also store all types of small, medium, and large or bulky parts, and can also be installed with cabinets, shelves, drawers, and trays for the most efficient storage solution.
