Get your car back in the garage!

Why do you put the second most valuable thing you own outside while storing your mostly useless junk in the garage? LOOK UP and envision a new deck hovering over your car hood holding all that stuff on the garage floor! Coolers, seasonal decorations, extra household supplies, records and even kayaks can fit on an overhead rack.

Store Your Records

no, not the vinyl kind...

So where do you put those ATO mandated hold on to seven year records? Yes, there are attics, closets, sheds and possibly cellars (eh..maybe not..mold is devilish on paper). One place that is perfect, simply because it is out of the way and generally free of most pesky issues, is over your head!

Yes I mean over your head in the garage. I dare say 90% of garages have NOTHING using the space over the hood of the car. That's not unusual as the latest racks have been on the market for just a few years.

Good Garage Storage!

Have a pro do is worth it!

More and more people are now using their garage as an extension of their house and an extra storage system for all their belongings. Thus, there is no longer room enough for family vehicles and other tools, for which it has been originally designed. When you catch yourself in such a situation, then it is advisable that you invest in some overhead garage storage. With the help of some equipment, you can address the problem effectively. This storage system maximizes the space for further use and frees up your wall and floor the family car and things that it was specifically designed.

By making use of your ceiling to store seldom used items and light objects, your garage floor will then be free from clutter. Another advantage of this innovative solution is its accessibility. All you need is to attach your shelves into your ceiling and a ladder.

Still not sure what to put on your overhead garage storage? Consider these seasonal items such as your holiday decors, old documents, camping supplies, old clothes, folding chairs, memorabilia and potentially hazardous equipment that you'd like to be out of your children's reach..

What are the things to consider if you want to install this storage system? Carefully consider your specific requirements, the structural capacity and design of your garage and most importantly, the materials need to carry out such a plan. You need to make sure that your garage is able to handle the extra load or you will end up messing more things up. The material composition of your ceiling will determine how capable it would be in handling additional loads. If it is made with wood or roofing material, then keep in mind to limit it to lighter objects.

Do you want your ceiling storage to occupy the whole area or just a part of it? If you have a high ceiling, then its advisable for you to utilise the whole area for a maximum storage capacity. If you want just a part of it, then choose carefully which spot you want to install it.

Considering all these factors, you are now ready to install your overhead garage storage.

Careful and considerate planning always drives success so take things one at a time and you will enjoy your new ceiling storage system much longer.
