You might try looking for an east coast equivalent to Industrial Photo
Supply in Burbank. IPS sells old
HFC and Neumade racks for reasonable prices.

Just last week, I spotted some Neumade racks on eBay, however they were for
small reels. They were selling
for $200 each, but I'd be surprised if they get that. New these racks are
very expensive. The HFC racks that were
used in editorial rooms (non-slotted, two rail tiers) sell for about $350

I'd consider getting standard metal shelving units with enamel coating, and
simply stack the cans flat like archives do. This
kind of shelving unit could easily be found in a used office supply store.
2000' cans are approx 15.5" across, everything else
would be smaller, so the shelves don't need to be that deep.
