Shelving Units

Sturdy shelving units are a must-have for any organised garage. They provide vertical storage space for various items and help keep things off the floor. Choose adjustable shelves that can accommodate different-sized items for the best space utilisation.

Wall-Mounted Storage Systems

Use your garage walls by installing functional wall-mounted storage systems such as our Panel or Rail Storage Solutions. These fantastic storage options allow you to hang tools, gardening equipment, and other items on the wall, keeping them within reach.

Overhead Storage Racks

Overhead storage racks are ideal for storing items that are used less frequently or are seasonal, such as holiday decorations or camping gear. They make use of the space above your head, keeping the floor area clear.

Cabinets and Drawers

Install cabinets or drawers to keep smaller items and tools organised and protected from dust and dirt. They are especially useful for storing smaller power tools, screws, nails, and other hardware.

Clear Plastic Bins

Transparent plastic bins are great for storing and organising items while still allowing you to see what's inside. Use them for categorising and storing items such as sporting equipment, camping gear, or children's toys.

Tool Chests and Workbenches

If you frequently work on projects in your garage, having a tool chest or workbench is essential. It provides a designated workspace and helps keep your tools organised and easily accessible.

Magnetic Tool Holders

Magnetic tool holders are a convenient way to keep frequently used tools like screwdrivers, wrenches, or pliers easily accessible. They can be mounted on walls or inside cabinets, saving space and keeping your tools organised. Try our easy to install magnetic tool holder available from our e-store.

Bicycles Racks or Hooks

If you have bicycles, consider installing bike racks or hooks to keep them off the floor and prevent them from taking up valuable space. Wall-mounted options such as our Horizontal or Vertical Bike Racks can help maximise storage efficiency.

Labelled Storage Containers

Use labels or tags on your storage containers to identify their contents. This makes it easier to find specific items and maintain an organized garage.

Safety Equipment

Don't forget about safety equipment. Keep fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and protective gear in an easily accessible location within your garage.

Remember, the specific storage essentials you need may vary depending on the size of your garage, your storage needs, and the types of items you plan to store. Assess your requirements and plan your storage solutions accordingly.
