Parts Department Shelving

automotive parts bins shelvingOur basic shelving offerings help you organize your automotive parts storage. Durable static shelving units can efficiently store parts of various sizes. We offer parts department shelving units in various dimensions and configurations, including open and closed shelving, sloped shelving, and plastic bin shelving for more effective small parts storage. You can check out all of our automotive storage solutions here.

Specialty Racks

parts department drawer shelvingIt can be challenging to efficiently store bulky or unusually-shaped parts like bumpers, fenders, mufflers, windshields, or batteries. However, you can simplify your storage with specialty racks for these parts. Our specialty rack offerings include sloped battery racks, windshield racks, tire racks, hanging tailpipe and muffler racks, bumper and fender racks, and sheet metal storage racks.

Modular storage drawers are an excellent solution for storing small parts more efficiently. You can customize the drawers with adjustable partitions to compactly store various parts. Modular drawers make better use of space than bin shelving, as they utilize the full depth and height of the drawers. Opening the drawers provides complete visibility of a wide range of parts, making it quicker and easier to locate items than bin shelving.

The drawers are available in a stand-alone cabinet, or you can integrate them into a shelving unit to store parts of various sizes in the same unit. These heavy-duty drawers are also lockable to keep stored parts secure. Read more about modular parts storage drawers here. Visit our online store to see our automotive storage products.

Automated Storage

Many automotive dealerships have revolutionized their parts storage with automated solutions like the vertical parts carousel. This enclosed storage system stores small parts bins in rotating carriers that automatically bring needed parts directly to the operator. With their efficient use of overhead space, vertical carousels can provide up to 80% floor space savings for your parts department. Read more about automated parts storage carousels here.

Mezzanine Shelving

automotive parts mezzanine shelvingA cost-effective way to increase your automotive parts storage space is to install a mezzanine. These elevated platforms provide additional floor space in previously unused overhead space. Mezzanines can integrate well with parts department shelving. One option is to install a mezzanine over a new or existing shelving system for additional space. You can also use a mezzanine as a catwalk between multi-level shelving units, allowing you to extend your shelving vertically. Read more about automotive mezzanines here.

Tire Storage

Tire carousels are a popular motorized storage solution that store tires in rotating carousels and bring needed tires to an ergonomic level for safe unloading. Other efficient tire storage solutions include traditional and heavy-duty storage racks for car or commercial tires, space-saving high-density tire storage racks, and overhead tire lifts. Read more about tire carousels and storage racks here.

File Storage

In addition to automotive parts storage, we also offer several solutions to meet your file storage needs. These include efficient open file shelving, heavy-duty record box storage racks, high-density shelving systems, sliders, rotary file cabinets, and powered filing cabinets. These filing solutions will improve organization and significantly reduce your storage footprint compared to traditional file cabinets.

Automotive Testimonials

“I just want to take a minute to let you know how good of a job your install crew did yesterday. They were quick, fast, courteous, and very consensus during the installation. They were awesome, to say the least. Being in the service business ourselves, we know that you can never hear the words “Good Job” often enough. Please pass this along to your crew.”

“Thanks for getting our Compact Pallet Rack system completed on time with little disruptions to our operation. Jim did a great job of listening to understand our needs and was able to design a system that works well for us. Kerry and the installation group were great. They were well organized and left the area very clean every day and at the end of the project.”


“We are coming up on a year since we installed the file system here at Bill Heard Chevrolet, and we continue to be more than happy with the outcome. The barcode tracking software system tracks the documents for us and is easy to maintain and use. There is something to be said about keeping things simple. We really like the way it interfaces with our software and populates fields for us automatically on a daily basis. Your guidance in the project was the best deal of all though. Your help in the setup and advice on what would work and what might not work saved us a lot of time and money. Again, thanks so much for your help and count on us as another satisfied customer.”
