  1. Safe Storage Facility:

Automotive parts can be costly and it’s important to keep them safe. Our storage containers come with additional high-security lock boxes so you can safely store your documents and expensive automotive parts and eliminate the fear of theft.

  1. Efficient and Better Organization of Spare Parts:

Automotive components come in various shapes and sizes; hence, its proper storage poses a unique challenge. While your windshields are huge, the lights are small and delicate. Likewise, tires and tools need to be kept well-organized and require a different kind of storage space.

Steel storage containers are perfect for this requirement. Buy a conex container and add shelves to stack and better organize the inventory. For safety, you can store the heavy tools and equipment on the floor-level of the container, while the lighter components can be placed on the upper shelves.

  1. Strong and Portable Storage Solution:

In the auto industry, a lot of material gets stored and moved around. The finished cars need to be transported and securely stored until they reach the final customer.

Similarly, a dealership store or garage needs to store the spare parts and other inventory in portable locations. Having automotive storage solutions that are portable and available for rent is the perfect option to use for a temporary surge in inventory like during an auto show or special automobile sales.

  1. Storage Solutions Can Prevent Damage from Extreme Weather:

Humidity, lack of ventilation, and other kinds of extreme weather conditions can affect or impair the tools and equipment in a garage. Steel containers with a proper ventilation system can prevent the inventory from corrosion or rust. You can easily store all your expensive spare parts for longer durations in a conex container.  

  1. Maximize Space with Storage Containers:

Maximize the utility of service area or showroom space by effective management of storage facilities. Clear off space in your dealership or garage by storing high-end tools or special auto parts in these steel storage containers.

Office remodeling or expansion means extensive construction. Mobile offices are perfect when you can’t afford to let your business lag.
