A garage can have a wide assortment of tools, machinery, auto parts, and accessories available for working on cars.
Keeping these tidy and organized is essential to make sure they are kept in good condition and can be easily found when needed. A variety of storage units and equipment is available to help with this.
Utilizing the wall space in a garage can be done with mounted or freestanding racks and shelves. These can be purchased ready for assembly to be fitted in place although it is also possible to have a custom storage system built for the particular layout and dimensions of a garage. Shelving and racks can be used to store boxes, oil cans, and smaller pieces of equipment. Those that want to provide some more protection can opt for a wall cabinet system and storing equipment behind closed doors can also keep a garage looking tidier.
Overhead space can be used by installing storage racks and platforms that are either mounted to the ceiling or use a pulley system so they can be raised and lowered. These can easily store ladders, boxes, and other equipment in a space that is often unused.
Working on cars involves a huge variety of tools and this makes a tool box a must for a garage. Options for this include larger wall mounted chests, portable boxes, or combined workbenches/tool carts. Plastic bins and racks are ideal for smaller items such as nails and screws.
Anyone with more than one car may need a way to store these that helps to maximize the space they have available in a garage. Auto stackers are a way of doing this and utilize a lift to raise one car up while another is parked below it. It is possible to get double and triple stacker units for home use although there are systems that can stack more for commercial use.
There are plenty of storage solutions available for those that want to make the most of their garage. The ideas shown above are a few to consider for safely storing tools, equipment, and vehicles in an organized manner.
