UPDATED 6/22/18 Of course, anyone with a garage knows that they naturally attract clutter and confusion. We get busy, see some space, and just end up filling it with a thing that happens to be burdening us at the moment. Later when we need that thing, we get angry because it is now buried under other stuff. You have to dig like an archaeologist to find your kid’s roller skates. Well, not anymore. Today it is so much easier to have a built-in system of storage that makes putting things away easier, and more importantly, makes retrieving the things we need a whole lot easier.

On top of making storage and finding things easier, there are other ways the utilization of overhead garage storage systems makes things better. Today’s blog posting will cover all the major benefits of overhead garage storage installation in Phoenix.

  1. Make better use of your floor. Getting items off the ground means having more space on the floor to use for whatever you need. Whether it allows you to park an extra vehicle inside, frees up the floor to store more things, or simply makes for an easier to navigate walk way, overhead garage storage racks free up the floor space like no other garage storage method.
  2. As I mentioned in the first benefit, the floor space is now capable to store something else when the previous items are now stored overhead. Overhead storage racks and shelves make the garage a much more efficient storage space, dramatically increasing the total storage capacity of any garage. If optimal storage is your goal, you must think vertically and start making use of all that three-dimensional space above.
  3. Every single Monsoon season in the Valley causes flash flooding that does some significant damage to Arizona residences and the items stored within. Since most items tend to be stored on the ground, these floods are very devastating. If you utilize overhead garage storage, Phoenix homeowners will be able to place their most valuable items above and the less valuable items below. If a flood ever makes its way into your garage, at least you know the most valued items are safe.
  4. Some overhead storage systems have helpful features to make storing and retrieving heavy items easy. For instance, Racor makes a vertical storage system that can support up to 250 lbs and is raised and lowered by a simple to operate crank. The PHL-1R Pro HeavyLift 4-by-4-Foot Cable-Lifted Storage Rack is a great choice for serious overhead garage storage done easy.
  5. Don’t waste money on paid self-storage services. Why pay rent when you are already paying a mortgage? Make the most of your garage’s storage capacity so you don’t have to add another recurring bill to your budget. If increasing your storage is a necessity, making a one-time investment in overhead garage storage is a much wiser investment than paying someone else to keep your items off-site. Not to mention self-storage separates you from your belongings; what if you really need your items immediately?

Stop settling for “just good enough” storage. The truth is it is not actually good enough. If you have permanently lost something, have had Monsoon flood water damage your items, or have been wasting money on monthly storage, you could be doing so much better.
