To customize your garage storage, you can buy one or a combination of garage storage cabinets that can help reduce the clutter in your garage. There are large units that can easily store most kinds of stuff, such as a five-foot tall garage storage starter system. It has tall vertical cabinets for long items and a smaller cabinet with shelves inside, plus three drawers for items that are frequently used, such as tools. There is also the Elite garage storage cabinet system by PrePac, which not only can be used for the garage but for other rooms in the house as well, such as the laundry room or the utility room.
There are many types of storage cabinets at either home or office.

These storage cabinets fill a variety of needs at an excellent price. Most of these cabinets are easy to assemble and require a very few nuts, bolts and screws.
Garage storage systems are made from several materials, such as MDF (wood composite) with an acrylic coating, metal as well as aluminum. The aluminum cabinets will be the priciest with the wood being the lowest in cost. MDF cabinets will typically be shipped free and are unassembled and come with instructions for assembly.

Everyone thinks of storage cabinets as a big gray metal box that holds paper products and office supplies. This rigid viewpoint of cabinets is still prevalent even now...however times have changed and so have cabinets. To narrow down what type of cabinet will help your given situation, you need to focus on the following parameters. Pre Assembled Cabinet or Unassembled. Cabinets that are assembled still need their locking handles assembled post delivery, due to concerns with damage during transport. Remember that even though unassembled storage cabinets are cheaper in price, they also have a lower load capacity per shelf and will typically take 30 to 45 minutes to assemble. If time is more important than money, we would definitely stay away from unassembled unless you have a staff to help.
Material of Cabinet. Storage Cabinets come in various materials with metal being the most popular due to its durability. When purchasing a metal cabinet, make sure the gauge thickness is adequate...remember that the lower the number is of the gauge the denser the metal.
