Upgrade Your Automotive Storage with 90% More Space

Modula Automated Storage Solutions and Spacesaver high-density products are game-changers in the automotive storage space. We’ve helped many automotive clients expand their parts and service area storage while we streamline their operations.

Our auto storage equipment allows auto dealerships, repair shops, & parts manufacturers to store more parts in up to 90% less space. This gives your auto shop more room for service bays, which means more revenue for you.

Our dealers love Modula’s vertical lifts because they can keep an inventory of their most in-demand part within 10 feet of their service counter. Combined with high-density storage, such as Spacesaver’s ActivRac Heavy-Duty Racking, our automotive storage solutions can reduce the space taken up not only by parts inventory, but also larger items like tires. Auto dealers and mechanics alike will find the ActivRac series perfect for tool storage and parts inventory while opening more space for revenue on the shop floor.

Benefits of Our Automotive Storage

Continued profitability means rethinking your auto parts storage and it starts by looking up. Automotive manufacturing and parts storage organizations use vertical storage and vertical lift modules (VLMs) to ensure their inventory is stored in a clean, secure, and easy-to-access location — using just a fraction of floor space.

  • More Service Bays: Make room for more auto service bays
  • Space Savings: Dramatically reduce the size of your parts area
  • Productivity: Get needed parts to your techs faster
  • Ergonomics: No climbing, bending or reaching for parts
  • More Revenue: Additional space for more revenue-generating activities
  • Security: High-value parts stored in a secure environment
  • Accuracy: Fulfill parts orders accurately
  • Efficiency: Improve overall inventory management

Vertical Lift Modules

Take Your Storage to New Heights

The benefits of Modula vertical lift modules (VLM) are two-fold. An obvious benefit is the sheer amount of storage they can provide in such a small footprint. Compared to standard static shelving that spans 30ft. across your building, Modula VLMs can store the same inventory as 60-80 shelving bays using 90% less space. This allows your employees to complete a higher volume of orders more quickly, safely, and ergonomically, increasing overall performance and profitability.

Integrate with Any DMS

Modula’s warehouse management system (WMS) is a software system that was created to operate all Modula units. These units have the potential to interface to any Dealer Management System (DMS), allowing orders to be sent directly & automatically from the DMS to VLM units. It easily interfaces with any DMS and ERP systems, making administration, invoicing, production orders, customer orders and picking operations much easier and quicker. 

Integration with this system provides immediate detection of any human errors, reduction in paperwork, and real-time control over warehouse operations and dispatching. Using ABC cycle analysis, it’s even easier to identify an item’s rotation factor. The result of combining a series of parameters will help determine each product’s ideal location, significantly increasing efficiency during the picking phase.

Increase Tire Storage Capacity with High-Density Racking

With large items like tires taking up tons of space, expansion or relocation aren’t the only options to increase storage capacity. Our vertical tire carousels & mobile racking systems can accommodate a large number of tire sets and save you 70% of tire floor space.

Apart from storing heavy tires, our high-density mobile systems can also alleviate your endless stream of paperwork. By mounting static shelving onto a carriage and rail system, high-density mobile storage eliminates fixed aisles to compact your storage space. It’s a simple concept that enables you to double your storage capacity or store the same amount of items in half the footprint, leaving room open for other revenue-generating spaces like extra service bays. According to the National Automobile Dealers Association, service and repair account for 60% of auto dealership net profits. High-density storage is a simple idea that can have a huge impact on your business.
