Automotive Fixed Ops Storage

Service Your Fixed Ops Storage

Auto dealer fixed operations (auto parts, service & repair departments) continue generating more of a dealership’s revenue than new or used car sales. According to the National Automobile Dealers Associationservice and repair account for 60% of auto dealership net profits. With this in mind, auto dealers and manufacturers are looking to clear up floor space and expand their service & repair shop revenue by adding at least one new service bay every year. But what happens when fixed ops storage and floor space run out?

Vertical storage solutions allow dealer & manufacturer auto repair shops to free up to 90% more service floor space than traditional cabinets, making room for more service bays and more revenue for your fixed ops department.

Vertical Storage for Auto Service & Repair

Continued profitability means rethinking your fixed ops storage and it starts by looking up. Automotive dealerships use vertical storage and vertical lift modules (VLMs) to ensure their service department 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, which means more revenue
  • Space Savings: Dramatically reduce the footprint of your service area
  • Productivity: Get needed parts to your mechanics faster without expending safety
  • Ergonomics: No climbing, bending, reaching or scrounging for parts
Static Shelving vs. VLM

Vertical Lift Modules

Take Your Fixed Ops to New Heights

The benefits of vertical lift modules (VLM) are two-fold. An obvious benefit is the sheer amount of storage they can provide service shops 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 and safely, increasing overall service performance and profitability.

Integrate with Any DMS

Modula’s warehouse management system (WMS) is a software system that was created to operate all vertical lift 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.
