Now that you have a bench to work off of; your Pit Products/Garage Pals Heavy Duty Base Cabinet, it's time to consider more storage solutions to help give your garage (The Great Hall) that professional classy touch and to help you free up space. In the majority of garages today, space is a premium. I see more and more people are parking their vehicles outside because the garage is full of other things and there's just not enough room. I've also been into several garages that look more like a late 80's bomb shelter where there's so much "stuff" piled everywhere that I was a little afraid to breath for fear of knocking something over and setting off World War III. We all know people that are a little specific about where and how their gear is organized and I can almost guarantee you in each of those garages, the King or Queen of that garage knows exactly where everything important to them is. I unfortunately was not blessed with that gift and am known to set down a hammer one minute only to begin searching for it almost immediately the next minute. I'd like to blame the kids, or a neighbor...their just not around, so sadly enough I need better organization.
Pit Products/Garage Pals has the solution! I know that sounds cliché and hits the rock bottom of a sales pitch forthcoming...kind of makes you cringe doesn't it? I know the feeling but I also know that whatever storage solution you're looking for, Pit Products/Garage Pals has the answer and if they don't, they'll work hard to find it with you. (I've seen it happen).
One of the best places to take advantage of garage storage is on the walls. If you're just starting off with your garage or trying to fix it up, stand in your garage with no vehicles in it and take a look around and make special note of the walls. Most of the time the walls are empty, they need something. They're opportunity waiting for you to fill them up!
Pit Products/Garage Pals offers a wide variety of high quality overhead cabinets of various shapes and sizes to help fill those walls. They offer 2, 4, 6, and 8 ft models of various heights. Note the sizes match up nicely with the heavy duty base cabinet sizes.
Shown, is the 2 ft wall cabinet that includes one adjustable shelf. Remember, you can buy more shelves if you desire and if you don't want the shelf, you can always take it out. I know I keep pointing out the adjustable shelves, but shelves play a vital role in storage solutions and with the adjustability, you can set it at whatever height is right for your needs. Each of the handles in the Garage Pals line is a heavy duty 2 point lockable latch so you can have the added protection of keeping your valuable equipment safe especially on those days you're running behind and happen to leave the garage door open as you drive off preoccupied with saving the world. (yes, voice of experience/not on the saving the world part...yet).
Pit Products/Garage Pals also offers a wide variety of other accessories to help save storage space in your garage. One of the basics and still most important; is a simple shelf to hang on your wall. I like the one on the left because it's advertised as: "Shelf: you choose the size." How many times have you needed a shelf for a specific spot on the wall and you can't find the right size? Pit Products/Garage Pals has taken care of that by letting you tell them what size shelf you want and they will make it for you anywhere from 12 inches up to 96 inches long! How cool is that?
If you have a bunch of spray cans, oil cans or similar type items cluttering up a bench, then an "Aerosol Shelf" might be the ticket for you. These high quality organizers hold up to 8 spray cans of paint or whatever type of canister you want to put in them. If that's not for you and you prefer to have a shelving unit, guess what! Garage Pals offers them too! They have a durable, shiny diamond plated 2 ft unit and a durable shiny 4 ft unit for your needs.
The last shelf I want to mention is for anyone that has a motorcycle, snowmobile, four wheeler, go-karts or any other type of vehicle that requires a helmet. It's the helmet bay! It consist of 2 shelves joined together; one for helmet storage on top and a lower shelf for gloves, hats and other accessories that we use regularly while playing with our "toys." The other added value of this shelf is the 2 garment hangers located underneath to hang jackets, shirts, bibs and other accessories that may need to be left hanging in the garage instead of the house. Don't forget to look up a bib hanger while you're looking!
That's a lot to take in for this reading. I hope I didn't soak you with too much information. It should be easy to see that Pit Products/Garage Pals has a ton of interesting stuff. Next time we'll talk about putting some of the finishing touches in your garage.
Side note: One thing I need to make clear to all is that while Pit Products and Garage Pals are the same manufacturer of high quality and durable diamond plate products, they each have their own specialty. Pit Products specializes in items for trailers and lightweight garage cabinets; items for the "gear head on the go." Garage Pals specializes in items for the garage. As you can see on the website, many of the items go hand in hand; if it's offered in the garage, chances are it's also offered in the trailer arena and vice versa. But, keep in mind that just because it's offered one way through Pit Products, doesn't necessarily mean that it's offered the same way through Garage Pals. Always make sure you get what you wanted and not what you thought you were getting.
