Top 10 Tips For An Organised Garage
2
  • The garage tends to be a place where the car
    lives until the amount of gear you have
    accumulated gets to be too much for the available
    storage in your house. Eventually, you will (or
    your partner) will say enough is enough and so
    its time to think about using whatever space you
    can in the garage so its time to start looking
    for garage shelving

3
  • First, decide about the car(s)
  • The first decision is about the car(s), if youre
    lucky and live in the suburbs or have extra
    space, then as long as the weather is ok, you can
    leave the car or if you have a double garage and
    2 cars like many families. Maybe one car can live
    outside?

4
  • Depending on your space
  • Whichever way things work for you, youre going
    to need to make the best of the space you have so
    that means garage shelves, hooks and ropes. Yes
    and a ladder, extra lights, etc. The way you set
    it out depends largely on your decision on the
    car.

5
  • Invest in some good quality shelving
  • Some things are heavy, so are best on the lower
    shelves, medium on the middle and light up
    higher,put a lot of stuff on a garage shelf and
    the weight soon adds up, so go as heavy a duty
    shelving as you can afford.

6
  • Keep everything reasonably Accessible
  • Make stuff easy to find dont place things on top
    of each other, its better to have narrower
    shelves, spaced closer together. You shouldnt
    have to move stuff to locate anything. If you
    have a car in the garage, make sure you dont
    have to pull the car out to reach your most
    frequently used gear.

7
  • Containers, bins and draws
  • Use clear bins, strong plastic crates and draws
    for small stuff. Place all the associated gear in
    the same bin and putting a label on it, helps to
    keep everything tidy and easy to locate.

8
  • Tools
  • Place tools in draws, especially drill bits and
    small expensive items. Nuts, bolts, screws and
    nails are best in clear jars with airtight lids.

9
  • Seasons use
  • Place things so they are handy for the season
    when youll them. If you have to have the car
    inside make it so it is easy to rearrange the
    gear so seasonal stuff is available when needed.

10
  • Workspace
  • Create a usable work table for your grinder,
    vice, drill-press and other tools

11
  • Use Your Vertical Space
  •  
  • Often there is lots of room in the ceiling area
    its a great place to hang large, bulky, light
    stuff such as fishing rods, nets, bikes, kayaks,
    wind surfers and surfboards with just a few hooks
    and ropes

12
  • Keep it clean
  • The garage can be your man-cave, a place where
    gear is kept on neat and tidy garage shelves as
    well as giving you a good space where you can do
    those jobs and store all the big boys toys out
    of the way but near when youre not using them.
