Garage Storage Solutions

For many Kiwi families, the garage is the unofficial home of outdoor gear, DIY tools and miscellaneous household items. The result? A disorganised and cluttered space, where it’s impossible to find whatever you’re looking for… let alone fit the car. 

This is where storage shelving and storage can help. Whether it’s cabinets, racks or benches, GaragePro can help you turn your garage into a functional space designed with intention—adding value to your home in the process.

Types of Garage Storage Systems

Garages offer a whole lot of potential; there are many ways you can use your newfound  space. Do you want to convert it into a playroom for the kids? How much tool storage do you need? Maybe you’re after a new area to work on projects, or indulge your green thumb. Just as there are uses for this room of the house, there are also many types of storage solutions available. It’s important to find the right garage storage solution for your current and future needs. Flexibility is key here: as your family grows, so will your requirements and storage needs.

To find the perfect garage storage system, speak to a garage renovation specialist at GaragePro and learn more about the services we offer.

Garage Storage Cabinets

Storage cabinets come in all shapes and sizes, and GaragePro has access to an extensive range for you to choose from. Whether you’re considering wall mounted or freestanding cabinets, you can mix and match to create a layout suited to your needs. We have partnered with Gladiator Garage and Mancave Direct, who provide high quality cabinets to tidy up your garage space. 

Overhead Storage

Garages are often known for being the dumping ground for lesser used items like Christmas decorations, old memorabilia, and that pottery making kit you haven’t touched in five years. What if we told you that they do belong in the garage—just in a more efficient spot than they are now! Overhead storage is a practical and compact way to store seasonal items, so long as there’s still room to safely move beneath the items. Storing items like bicycles, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and surfboards in overhead racks can also free up valuable floor space.

Garage Workbench

A garage workbench will finally give you the space to work on that project you’ve been planning—so it’s important to create a workspace to suit your needs and hobbies. A garage workbench is also a great option for unloading temporary items from the overhead or cabinet storage, looking after plants and gardening, or cleaning and fixing tools.

 

Garage Shelving

Garage shelving is a versatile storage option, keeping your tools and supplies protected and organised. In addition, good garage shelving should be able to hold weight, while being easy to clean. Many people opt for a ventilated solution for this reason; gravel and dirt can land on the floor and be swept away, while gear and gardening equipment can rest on the shelves above. Some also opt for wall-mounted hook systems like the GearWall, which allow you to hang items absolutely anywhere.

FAQ

  • Where is your garage carpet made?

    Our standard garage carpet is made in Belgium, by the biggest manufacturer of needle punched carpet in the world. Beware of cheap Chinese carpet that is made with a very low GSM and lightweight resin backing. Some of these carpets can literally be seen through when held up to the light and will not last long term. We do have a Chinese option available however it is of very high-quality rivalling anything on the market.

  • Does the garage carpet come with a warranty?

    Yes, your newly installed garage carpet comes with a lifetime zippering and de-lamination guarantee plus a comprehensive colour-fast and manufacturing warranty for 5 years! We also install the carpet to the AS/NZS 2455.1 2007 standard for floor coverings which includes ensuring the sub-surface is prepared correctly. This ensures a long lasting installation.

  • Can I drive my car on the garage carpet?

    Of course you can…it is garage carpet after all. If your car is wet the moisture will simply drain through the carpet onto the concrete and evaporate as normal. When your garage carpet gets dirty it can be cleaned with any carpet cleaning machine. As the carpet is polypropylene it will not absorb any moisture or dirt. You may notice when it is new that your car will leave indentations in the pile. This is normal, just like the legs of a table leave indentations in other types of carpet (textiles). Over time this will become less noticeable as the carpet flattens more evenly.

  • Will the garage carpet have joins?

    Yes, the average double garage will have one or two joins. All of our joins are ‘double cut’ and glued and are almost invisible! It should be noted that due to manufacturing process, there may be a slight difference in shade between each strip of carpet. This is normal for synthetic carpets.

  • What happens at the front of the garage?

    All of our garage carpet installations are finished at the door with either a rubber transitional strip that is glued in place, or an alloy one that is screwed in place. This finishes the job off and protects the front edge of the carpet.

  • Does the door insulation add weight to the door?

    Yes, it adds up to 14kg to a double garage door. This will likely require the door to be adjusted to rebalance the pre-tensioning springs. We can arrange a technician to make the required adjustments to cater for the extra weight if necessary.

  • Where is your door insulation made?

    Our insulation is made specifically for us, in Auckland, from 100% recycled polyester.
