As the automotive industry continues to grow, so does the need for efficient storage solutions. Traditional storage solutions, such as warehouses and shelving units, can be costly and space-consuming. Mobile High-Density Storage for Automotive Parts is an excellent alternative to maximize your existing or new building’s space.

Mobile high-density storage is an affordable and space-efficient alternative to traditional storage methods. Studies show that aisles in traditional shelving take up as much space as storage shelving in most cases. Mobile high-density storage turns that aisle space into valuable storage space. Maximizing space is accomplished by taking new or existing rows of shelving, racks, or cabinets and placing them on rolling mobile carriages. See more automotive storage solutions.

The rows of mobile shelving are then placed on floor tracks. The rows of storage shelving roll back and forth on tracks to compact storage. Thus, replacing the fixed aisles in traditional storage shelving and replacing them with one or two moveable aisles.

Accessing a Mobile High-Density Storage System

mobile high density parts storage automotive

Accessing a storage aisle is accomplished by rotating a hand crank handle or pushing a button. The operator can move multiple rows of shelving by rotating the hand crank handle or pushing a button.

If you have highly active automotive parts, they can be stored outside the high-density shelving system or create a stationary aisle within the high-density shelving.

Mobile high-density storage will typically cut your space in half or double your parts storage capacity in the same floor space. Maximizing your existing floor space helps car dealership parts rooms and automotive manufacturing facilities reduce overhead costs and increase efficiency.

Mobile high-density storage is an efficient and cost-effective way to store your automotive parts.

Mobile High-Density Storage Benefits 

automotive mobile high density cabinetsImproves Productivity – Mobile high-density storage systems are becoming increasingly popular in parts rooms and manufacturing environments because of their space-saving benefits. In addition to space savings, these storage systems improve productivity. For example, they allow you to locate more parts closer to the point of use. Locating parts closer to the point of use eliminates the need for workers to travel up and down mezzanine stairs or to remote storage areas to retrieve parts.

Locating parts and supplies closer to the point of use saves time and increases worker productivity when retrieving stored parts.

Overall, mobile high-density storage systems offer several advantages that can improve productivity and space savings for storing auto parts.

Security – Mobile high-density storage systems promote inventory security. Since mobile high-density storage systems compact rows of shelving together, fewer aisles are open, limiting unauthorized personnel access.

Also, the entire storage system, or rows of shelving within the system, can be locked together with very inexpensive aisle locks. Aisle locks allow you to secure the entire storage system or preferred aisles within the system.

Securing your storage with mobile high-density shelving reduces the opportunity for pilferage and helps manage inventory levels. 

Provides Flexible Storage – Mobile high-density storage systems offer a flexible storage solution for multiple types of storage equipment. Whether you have small parts shelving, bulk storage racks, storage cabinets, or other storage equipment, chances are we can use it on our mobile carriages.

Using your storage equipment will reduce the cost of your new mobile high-density storage system.

Other Considerations – Other considerations include aisle lighting and safety features. Finally, the high-density storage systems are moveable and reconfigurable as your business grows and changes. We have moved high-density storage systems two to three times and even moved them back to their original location.

Three Modes of Operation

car dealership high density storage shelvesThere are three modes of operation for mobile automotive parts shelving: manual, mechanical-assist, and powered.

  • Manual – The operator pulls a handle to move the carriage from side to side on tracks. This system is best for smaller storage systems with lighter loads.
  • Mechanical-assist (Hand Crank) – These mobile units move by turning an ergonomic three-spoke rotating handle. The use of the handle allows the movement of weights up to 10,000 lbs. with just one pound of effort from the operator.
  • Powered – High-density powered systems require only pushing a button to open an access aisle to access stored materials. Multiple safety features are available with powered systems. These safety features give ultimate protection to protect users and stored materials.

“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.”
