Spending time researching the different types of storage available, and selecting the design that will work best for you is the first thing to do. Finding the ideal shelving units for your garage will enable you to organize the space quickly and effectively. Basic garage shelving is ideal if you only have a few items to store, although they are not designed for heavy items. Certain pieces of equipment and tools need to be stored on the correct shelving; this will ensure that both the item and the garage do not get damaged. You should try not to fill all of the floor area with shelves and try to use both the walls and ceiling. Using these as well as the floor is the ideal solution to your clutter problem.
Steel prefabricated garage shelving is the best choice in this category. You can also purchase plastic shelving, which is OK for light items, but does not work well for storing heavier items. The big disadvantage of steel shelving is that the shelves cannot be cut to size. You are forced to work with standard measurements for depth and length of the shelves. Also, be sure that there are at least two different settings for shelf placement on the frame. The adjusting pins must be heavy-duty and should have something in place to prevent them from working loose or becoming accidentally dislodged.
Technological advancement has also provided a pre-engineered galvanized steel shelf model designed for harsh environments like areas which are very humid or in unheated warehouses. Applications will be for storage of solvents, cleaning agents and oily or greasy materials. You can avail of it in sections of 36" wide by 84" high with a choice of three depths.
