Modular Storage Drawers

automotive parts storage drawersModular drawers are the most efficient solution for storing small automotive parts. These heavy-duty drawers are highly customizable. They are available in a wide range of dimensions and colors, with adjustable partitions to create different compartment sizes to accommodate a wide variety of parts.

The drawers are available as a stand-alone drawer cabinet, or you can integrate them into shelving units for more flexible storage. You can store small parts and bulkier items in the same storage unit by combining the drawers with open shelving. You can also integrate modular drawers into a workbench to conveniently access parts and supplies.

Modular drawer specifications include:

  • Up to 400-lb load capacity per drawer
  • Drawer widths ranging from 18” to 60”
  • Drawer depths ranging from 18” to 27”
  • Drawer heights ranging from 3” to 14”

Why Choose Modular Drawers over Plastic Bin Shelving

Efficient Use of Space

automotive drawers vs plastic binsModular drawers make much better storage space than traditional plastic bins on shelves. Plastic bins typically leave wasted space both above and behind each bin, whereas the drawers utilize the full height and depth of the shelving.

The modular drawers allow you to store various parts in a compact space. In fact, by switching from traditional bin shelving to modular drawer cabinets, you can recover up to 70% of your floor space, freeing up that space for more productive activities.

Improved Organization

With their customizable divider system, modular drawers afford optimal storage organization for your small parts. Each part will have a designated compartment, and with the help of labeling accessories, locating parts will be more accessible than ever.

Easier Access

automotive small parts drawersModular drawers make it far easier to find and access needed parts than plastic bins. Bins offer little visibility of stored supplies; you must take down each individual bin to view the parts inside. In contrast, modular drawers slide open easily to provide complete visibility of a more extensive selection of parts, with 100% drawer extension for unimpaired access. Storing parts in drawers means you can locate and retrieve parts much more quickly, resulting in increased productivity and improved customer service.

Superior Security

When locking up valuable supplies to protect them from being lost or stolen, plastic bins offer little security and would need to be inside a locked cabinet. Modular drawers, on the other hand, come with individual locks, which means you can choose which drawers to lock. The automotive parts storage drawers are also highly durable and sure to provide long-lasting, secure storage for your auto parts.

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.”
