Walk down almost any street in the Chicago Suburbs and you will notice that while most houses have garages, there are a lot of cars parked in driveways and on the street. Peek into those garages and you will see that many are stuffed to the gills with “stuff.” Some homeowners have opted for a three-car garage option, hoping to find room for at least one of the family cars – often to no avail.
After dealing with scraping ice and snow off the cars in below zero weather, this spring brought hailstorms to many areas in Chicagoland. Many automobiles that could have been safely parked in the garage were damaged by golf ball sized hail. And while summer is just around the corner, it brings its own challenges. Cars left in the sun are much hotter inside than those sheltered in a garage. Car seats sitting in the sun can be extremely uncomfortable – especially if you are wearing shorts.
But where can you put all of the “stuff” that lives in the garage? You can’t leave that on the driveway, can you?
The answer may be a combination of donating or discarding things you don’t need, and then installing a garage storage system to organize the rest.
Once you have decided on what absolutely has to be stored in the garage, The Garage Store can help. They will survey the space, allocating as much as possible to storage while considering how much room your vehicle or vehicles will need. They will then assess your storage needs. Will you need to hang bicycles? Store sports equipment? Corral gardening tools? Or do you need a workbench or space for hobbies. They will then suggest the right storage containers, which may include a combination of wall cabinets, rolling cabinets, a workbench, shelves and hooks.
Just think about how nice it would be to walk down your street to see the beauty of the homes instead of the vehicles cluttering the driveways and streets. And then think about how much easier your life will be when you can find things in your organized garage.
