There aren’t many things more frustrating to an auto enthusiast than being unable to locate the right tool to get the job done. It could be in the toolbox, the cupboard, on a shelf or in a container. No matter where it is, though, if you can’t find it, you can’t use it. That’s a big part of the reason why garage organization is so important to gearheads. If you’re not sure where to start, here are three tips to help you keep your garage clean and tidy so you don’t have to wonder where that screwdriver went when you need it.
1. Find Similarities
When it comes to organizing your garage to work on your vehicle, there are a lot of tools to keep track of.
What’s the easiest way to make sure you know where your tools are?
Organize by storing like with like.
Invest in a container for all your screwdrivers, another one for all your hammers and yet another one for all you wrenches.
By keeping your tools categorized, you’ll know exactly where to turn when you need a certain tool.
2. Invest In Racks
Containers can be great for some tools, but for larger items, you’ll want a rack.
From paint to oil, you’ll be able to store a variety of items quickly and efficiently.
Plus, adding a rack to your garage makes it easy to grab what you need when you really need it.
3. Install Shelving
Sure, garages were made for storing your car, but for many people the garage easily becomes just another place to store unused things.
If your garage is your workspace, you need enough room in which to work comfortably. Fortunately, this isn’t too difficult to do. All you need is to invest in storage space to store the non-mechanic things that are filling the garage. Since every garage is different, the best option might be putting together a custom storage system. Not only will your garage look cleaner, you’ll also have more space to work. That’s a win/win situation.
Organizing your garage is a cinch when you use these three pieces of advice to help!
