Chevrolet Tool Storage Organization

Our A-Team traveled out to Daphne, Alablama to perform a Chevrolet tool storage organization project.

Watch us makeover a Chevy dealer with our tool storage organization system in Alabama.

Transcript of Our Chevrolet Tool Storage Organization

Here is an Chevrolet tool storage project completed in Daphne, AL by Tool Org’s own A-Team, Woody and Dawn.

We’re just wrapping up here at Terry Thompson Chevrolet, and we are in Daphne, Alabama. They built this little room over here and this is where we put their tool room in.

This is a sixteen panel job. Panels were setup on twelve inch centers. Everything in this tool room is in a numerical sequence, from lowest to highest. That’s how the whole tool system works. You don’t think about the alpha, the “J”, the “DT” or “G” or any of that, you just think about the number. And everything is in that number sequence. From lowest to highest.

This shows you that we mounted five panels over here. We had to mount 2 x 6’s to the drywall and paint them and that’s how that turned out. You can see back there, it looks real nice. Because this was a finished room when we got here.

We put little bumpers on the walls for the boards so they don’t damage the drywall. This shows you the recommended tools. They had this shelf when we got here, and we pulled all their tools out of it and we inventoried everything and then we re-purposed that shelf and re-used their totes for recommended tools. They are all broke down by numbers as you can see.

This shows you what one of the panels look like. We’ve got spacer brackets on top to keep everything at a twelve inch distance. We use these nice baskets for these assembly tools. There shows you going down the other way.

This is a small room, but we made it happen. Then we have three shelves in this room and we have all their kits on these shelves. We have everything labeled. We also made them up transmission boxes, so all the transmission tools for these particular transmissions are in these kits. So, when they come to do that they don’t have to gather up a bunch of different components, they just grab that box that has all the components in there and go do their transmission.

We also have them setup with the dog-tag system here. Shows you their dog tags. They are labeled, so, when you come in to get a set tool, you take one of these dog tags – whatever the guys number is and put it where the tool is that he needs. When you return it, you put the dog tag back.

Ok. With that, I have one more area here. We worked with Charlie over here and Jason. Both of them are…I met Terry Thompson, the owner… all three guys were very nice, very helpful.

Back in here, we have their non-current tools broke down by numbers. Our recommendation is, when we finish here, that the customer goes through these tools, and if they see anything that they are still using in these boxes, to pull it out. If not, at that point and time, our recommendation is to discard them.

This shows you two more shelves that we built back here for them. We have their heavy fixtures and their electrical connectors on them. Eventually, this will be moved up closer to that room. But, right now, this is where they had us set it up.

Ok. With that, we’re going to thank Tool Org. for the job. We’re going to thank God for His help as always.

Once again, if you need to have your tool system done, you should look on the web for “Tool Organization Services” and them are the people you contact. Even if you need just a consultation, that would be who you contact. They’ll direct you on what’s going to be best for your particular situation.

Here is an tool room storage project completed for a BMW dealership in Arlington, Texas by Tool Org’s own A-Team, Woody and Dawn.

We’re just wrapping up here. We are at BMW of Arlington. We’re in Arlington, Texas.

Tool Room Storage for BMW of Arlington

This was a twelve panel job with three pieces of wall-mount and three shelves. We’re coming into the tool room, we mounted one piece of the wall-mount right here and we mounted the other pieces down at the other end.

This particular system, we had to put plywood on the wall to re-inforce it. It was light gauge steel on twenty-four inch centers. We re-inforced that with plywood and we hung the panels up.

Panels are on twelve inch centers. This, uh… the way we do this is, after we get done inventorying and we get the system installed we go about hanging up all their tools and we put them all in numerical sequence. They’re out, they’re visible and they’re easy to find. When a guy is getting a tool, it works like a big book and when he’s returning a tool, the same deal, he just brings it back.

Everything is out and visible. If they have it or don’t have it, you can tell that right off the bat. When we inventory everything we put it onto a database, we store all that and when we get the job completed, we fine tune it and we’re able to tell them, in that data, all the tools they have or don’t have.

This shows you what it turns out like. And like I said, all the numbers are numerical.

Back there we mounted some fixtures for them. Over here on the shelves… I’m going to show you these shelves for a minute. These are kits. These little totes we turn into assemblies. Sometimes, they’ll have a tool that they have a bunch of pieces to and we’ll put them in these totes and then we’ll label them. When a guy comes to do that job he doesn’t have to look for a bunch of different pieces. He just grabs that tote and he goes and does what he’s gotta do.

These are their kits. They’re all labeled. Their shelves are labeled. They have room to grow in their tool system. And then, back in here, we hung up all their test cables. And the same thinking, everything is numerical.

This shows you what that turns out like. And they have room to grow with their tools and with their cables. Back in here we have their ninety-eight and older tools containerized back here. If they need something they can go back in there and get them.

This tool room storage job was done by Tool Organization Services and to contact them, here is the phone number. See if I can get it so it’s not blurry. And that’s us.

With that, I think I’m going to go ahead and I’m gonna shut er’ down.

Dave Sinclair Buick GMC Dealership

This was a fourteen panel job with three shelves. Here are the shelves. The kits are on there and everything is labeled and numbered nice.

These are some shelving that was here and we re-purposed it. Used it for some fixtures and stuff. We also kept most of their heavier fixtures down in their equipment room. We cleaned that up for them…and organized the stuff down there so the parts guys won’t have to get them.

This shelf you are looking at here, we re-purposed this with these totes (clear and blue) and these are the recommended tools and double tools. Then these are tranny kits that we made up. Some were already made, the ones that weren’t we made them up.

This shows you their fourteen panels…how it came out. These were on fourteen inch centers. They have two in a half panels for growth. Because, we made up the tranny boxes and we left some other things in kits. We even made up these clear coated kits here for some tools that make better sense for being in a tote.

We opened up some space on the board for growth, and down here are all the non-current tools we took out of their tool system.

This shows you looking down at there tool system from the other way. It worked out nice. We put plywood on the floor underneath the shelves here, so if something were to fall it won’t fall and hit somebody down below

We did the same thing underneath the shelves over here. Created kind of a floor, because we are on a grated floor system…and you can see that’s parts down there.

Ok, with that we worked for Brian over here. Met John Sinclair. Nice guys, great help and…let’s see…we’re going to thank Tool Org. for the job and we are going to thank the Lord for his help as always.

We are in Madison, Wisconsin. This was a twelve panel job with a piece of wall-mount and two shelves.

It’s a tight little room, but it worked. This shows you what it turned out like.

They have a panel in a half for growth. We made them up transmission boxes to save them some room. And then we labeled them, and put their tranny tools in there. The guy just grabs that box and goes and does the job that he has to do.

This shows you their shelves. And here is a piece of wall-mount back here.

Again, this is another job done by Tool Org and if you need your job done there is the telephone number (800) 245-0050 to call.

We put them up the tool list that GM told them they had to have. So, they have a spot for all their tools that got coming in. Because, this place is brand new.

With that, we worked for David over here and we met Nick. Some nice guys. We also had the privilege of meeting John Bergstrom. Again, this is what this facility looks like. This is a bran new store done by Tool Organization Services.

With that, I’m gonna go ahead and shut er’ down.

So, we’ve got a free-standing fixture here with five panels on it. This shows you their shelves and their kits. Everything is labeled.

Over here is the recommended tools and double tools.

And, that’s what it turned out like Here. And then we have two shelves down in the transmission area that we picked up and we made up tranny boxes for them, and also utilized one for the engine stand.

We worked with Mike over here and Kelly…some great guys and great team over here. And we think it turned our really nice for them.

One more thing… they have a little better than two panels for growth. So, they got plenty of room to grow. With that, I’m gonna go ahead and I’m going to shut er’ down.
