How It All Works!

Our process for quoting your garage.

It’s time to rethink the garage! At Garage Concepts, we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction. We combine high-quality products with expert design and installation to deliver a complete solution for your garage. Our goal is to furnish you a storage and organizational system that will provide an abundance of storage while improving the overall organization and appearance of your garage.

Here’s how it all works……

Set up a consultation by calling our office at (757) 487-1101 or contact us online. We will contact you to set up a free in-home consultation.

Our consultant will arrive at the scheduled time to meet with you in your garage. It’s helpful to have all adults who use the garage present so that the consultant can get a good feel for how everyone uses it.

The consultant will ask questions and discuss your vision for your garage.

Typical questions are:
What would you like your garage to be?
  • A work area
  • An organize storage space
  • A place to park the cars
  • A cool space where I can hang out with friends and my car or motorcycle
  • A family fun area
  • All of the above
What type of activities take place in the garage?
  • Miscellaneous
  • home projects
  • Working on cars or motorcycles
  • Crafting
  • Gardening
  • Family fun
  • No activities
Is there a budget for the project?

Customers typically invest between $2,500 and $6,000 for a complete garage system. The project can be completed at one time or in phases. A floor system can add to this amount. Knowing the budget will allow the consultant to recommend a solution that is within the budget you have established for the project.

Now that the consultant has a good feel for your goals, the design process will begin. The consultant will survey the items you store in the garage and take detailed measurements of the space. Armed with this information, the consultant will prepare a plan to make over your garage. The plan may include some or all of the following storage solutions:

A work area with an appropriate work surface and storage for tools and other supplies that may be used around the work area.

Cabinet storage where supply items like paint and other harmful chemicals, lawn and garden supplies, auto supplies, bulk pantry supplies, sporting equipment and seasonal items can be stored safely behind closed doors.

A garage floor can give your garage the feel of a room. A slip-resistant, easy-to-clean floor is the finishing touch to any garage makeover.

Once the consultant has completed a draft of the plan, it will be presented for your review and comment. The presentation will include pictures and drawings of the proposed plan. Together, you and the consultant will review the plan to confirm that it’s exactly what you have in mind. Changes to the plan can be made at this time, of course.

In most cases the entire process outlined above takes place during the initial appointment; more involved makeovers may require a return visit.

Once the plan is finalized, you can decide how you would like to proceed. In order to begin work, we will collect a deposit, e-mail you the design plan and schedule an installation date. In a few short weeks, our professional installer will arrive to execute your garage makeover.

In just one to two days your garage will be transformed into an organized, attractive space that will be a source of pride and enjoyment for as long as you live in your home.
Enjoy your new garage!

Get ready for your Garage Makeover

We encourage all homeowners to sort through their contents before we install their garage system. Donate, sell or dispose of items that are no longer used or needed. When in doubt, throw it out! If you haven’t used it in years, if it’s broken, or if you have two of them – get rid of it.

Once you have narrowed down the items to those that need to be stored, separate the items into like categories, i.e. hand tools, lawn and garden, toys and recreational items, harmful chemicals (paint, yard chemicals, auto supplies, cleaning supplies). Place all the items you have decided to keep in the center of your garage. You are now ready for the install to begin.

Once the install is complete, it’s time to put everything in its place. Store like items together in an accessible, logical place near where they will be used, so they will be easy to reach and easy to put back in place. Items that will be used in the house (mops, brooms, cleaning supplies) should be stored near the entry door to the house. Hand tools should be stored near the workbench. Lawn tools should be conveniently located near the garage door.

The goal is to have a place for everything that will be stored in the garage. If there is not a place for an item, it will end up on the largest shelf of all -- the floor!

Maintaining your newly organized garage

To maintain your now-organized garage, you simply have to put your belongings back where they belong. Now that everything has a home, it will be easier to find what you’re looking for and to keep your garage in order. Think twice before adding anything new and if you do decide to add something, give it a home immediately.
