Three Garage Storage Hacks to Prevent Auto Glass Damage

Install Cabinets

Cabinets give you extra storage space in your garage while also keeping things neat and organized. Oftentimes, garages feature some type of workbench area or shelving system, but this is not the most efficient way to keep items securely stored. While the idea of installing cabinets in the garage may sound pricey, there are many affordable options to consider. Check online, find pre-built cabinets that are simple to install, or shop for used cabinets that have been repurposed.

Create Wall Hangers

There is a lot of usable wall space in the garage that often goes to waste. Sure, you might lean your yard tools up against the garage wall, but securing these and other items on wall hangers can keep them from tipping over onto your car, or from slamming into your auto glass. If you’re crafty and feel comfortable building your own wall hangers, all you need is a few sturdy pieces of wood to attach the hangers. Or you can buy easy-to-install wall hangers to hold bikes, yard tools, brooms, mops, and more. Whatever you choose, the goal is to secure these items in place to reduce the risk of them falling onto your vehicle.

Use Storage Bins

Get rid of stacks of flimsy cardboard boxes and opt instead for storage bins. When you stack boxes of stuff, there is a good chance that stack will eventually topple over, and if your car is nearby, that could mean a scuffed and dented car or a busted windshield. Storage bins, on the other hand, hold a lot of items, they stack nicely, and the lids generally lock tightly into place. If you’re worried that you won’t be able to find what you need, avoid having to rummage through boxes by using clear storage boxes. Also, label each storage container to make it easier to find the things you need. This can help reduce frustration when searching for a specific item in a hurry, which could also help prevent items from falling on your vehicle.
