Though not many of us can live with the sight of clutter around, and we like keeping our homes neat, there’s still that part of home that ends up with piles and piles of disorganised things: the garage. Part of this may be that we tend to keep more things than necessary, and the other part may be due to not seeing the garage as often as the rest of our homes. Whatever the reason, there’s no excuse not to make way for organisation so you avoid the unsightly mess.
Although meant for the industrial premises, heavy duty garage shelving units are ideal for your garage as well in helping you wave clutter goodbye. Not only would you be able to keep everything you need in reach, perfectly stored and labelled, but you would also turn this area into one that’s functional (as it should be), and safe most of all; it’s not rare that garage mess leads to accidents, like fire, and is the perfect breeding ground for pests.
Lucky for you, there’s plenty to choose from when it comes to size, and materials of heavy duty garage shelving units, so based on the size of your garage, the number of items, their weight in total, and your material preferences you can make the best decision. From standard static shelving options, to mobile for floor saving, from steel shelving kits with spare tray parts, shelving with adjustable shelves, boltless shelving, the versatile system of longspan shelving for tight spots and optimal storage of boxes, parts, and all-things heavy, to workbenches – the choice is yours.
In case you’d also be using your garage for parking your car, once you’ve completed the organising of the area, it’s advisable to use as much of vertical space as you can. You can count on best results by taking everything out primarily, so you have a better look of the whole area, as well as the items so you can sort them out to must-keep and disposable, then do the planning on where you find it best to place the shelving systems, and where to install rails and holders on the walls for the storage of all items with handles.
Garage organisation has been taken so seriously in the USA, that they have a national Clean Out Your Garage day. Though as a nation we haven’t taken garage cleaning to that level, it doesn’t mean we can’t succeed in it just as much. Once you’ve finished up with the new look of your garage, clutter-free, it’s time to make regular maintenance and cleaning your mission.
