Prefabricated Steel Auto Shops
Starting a new auto shop business (or even revamping a new one) is never an easy task. Whether you’re launching a new auto shop or have witnessed your current one grow from a simple two-car garage to something larger that now requires more space, a steel building is the best solution for your car repair and storage needs.
At Titan Steel Structures, we understand the unique demands of the automotive industry, and that’s why we specialize in crafting prefabricated steel auto shop buildings that meet and exceed your expectations. Our steel auto shop buildings are manufactured to withstand the test of time, endure Mother Nature’s elements, and make your business run more smoothly.
The Advantages of a Prefabricated Steel Auto Shop
At a certain point in every mechanic’s career, whether they are a hobbyist or a licensed professional, they reach a turning point where their driveway or personal garage no longer offers the space they need to carry out their car repair. When this time comes, it’s important to make the most practical and affordable decision for your auto shop, and that decision involves choosing steel.
Pre-engineered steel buildings make excellent auto shops for a number of reasons. First, steel shop buildings are incredibly cost-effective, and they require little to no maintenance, reducing the total upkeep costs. Rather than throwing money down the drain with costly upkeep, you can funnel more money into your growing business.
Aside from the financial aspect, steel buildings are simply a practical choice for auto shops. Key advantages include:
Versatile sizes that can accommodate numerous bays
Steel buildings come in custom sizes. They can be expanded as your business grows, as well. Your steel auto shop can be customized with just one or two bays or more than a dozen–it all depends on the scope of your business and your needs.
Clear-span design for optimal storage and workspace
Prefabricated steel buildings are built using robust steel framework and I-Beam supports, thereby eliminating the need for interior support beams or columns. This provides for a wide-open clear-span design that you can organize to your liking without having your workspace obstructed. This also makes for easy maneuverability of vehicles.
Durable, robust steel framework accommodates the unique needs of auto shops
Automotive work can be rough on a building, but our steel buildings are durable and robust. Not only can they withstand severe weather, but they can also endure the wear and tear required by auto shops. Steel buildings can accommodate multiple vehicles as well as larger pieces of heavy-duty equipment, such as lift installations, floor jacks, wheel balances, and more.
One of the best qualities of prefab steel buildings is that they are fully customizable. We know that no two auto shops are the same. That’s why we offer complete customization options. You’re in charge of the inside, outside, and more.
In addition to choosing the wall and trim colors and building size, you can also install multiple garage doors for easy bay access, plenty of windows for natural light, climate control to keep your mechanics cool, and extra outlets for electricity and power tools. Whether you need multiple bays, office space, vehicle lifts, or specialized storage areas, we’ll design a building that fits your precise requirements.
Fast construction and installation
Your customers need their cars working so they can get where they need to go–and fast! There is no time to wait for several months of new-build construction. However, with a steel building, the framework is measured and cut off-site. By the time it is delivered, it is ready to be installed.
Erecting a steel building is fast and easy. A highly motivated group of individuals can erect your steel auto shop within a couple of days or weeks–a fraction of the time it would take to build an auto shop with alternative building materials. As a result, you can get your auto shop up and running without unnecessary delays–and get your customers back on the road in no time.
We understand that energy costs can be a significant expense for automotive businesses. Between the power required for your tools, keeping the lights on, and regulating the temperature, your electric bill can get pricey. Fortunately, our steel auto shop buildings are designed with energy efficiency in mind, so you can maintain a comfortable work environment while keeping operational costs to a minimum.
