Admitting you have a problem

Step 1

Admitting you have a problem

‘Too Much Stuff’ and ‘Too Little Space’
  • Do you find you’ve got so much ‘stuff’ in your garage you can’t remember where you parked your car?
  • Have you got cupboards in your house so full of gear you fear that if you open the door you’ll be buried in an avalanche?
  • Do you have more kids bikes, cars and toys than you have kids … or deck space?
  • Even though you long ago gave up the dream of being a Globetrotting Soul Surfer, why do you still have 3 surfboards propped against the wall in the rumpus room? Next to the skis … used once … 6 snow seasons ago.

If you answered yes to any of the above … then you do have a problem … with “STUFF”.

Clean out your stuff

Getting rid of old stuff can be a cathartic experience. It’s like clearing the clutter from your mind.  It might seem  overwhelming at first, but if you can just bring yourself to take that first step it will be so rewarding in the end.  As you empty the garage, sort things into 3 piles.  Keep, Donate, Discard.  Then you won’t have to waste time reorganising until you have completely emptied the garage.

How long will it take?

How long it takes entirely depends on just how big a Gladiators Garageworks transformation you’ve got planned.

Hooks go up in no time at all. Putting up gear tracks on a basic stud wall might take you half an hour. And installing cabinets might take about an hour.

A medium sized system might take you an afternoon to install and does not require an overly technical inventory of tools. It will always be easier with a mate along to help.

Tools needed

  • Spirit Level
  • Tape Measure
  • Drill
  • Stud Finder
  • Screw Driver – (No.2 Phillips Head)
Expand your storage as you grow

Step 5

Expand your storage as you grow

Too much stuff and too little space is a recurring problem.

The Stuff versus Space battle will rage on and on ad infinitum. As time moves on, stuff will eventually accumulate and creep out into new places. You need to stay on top of stuff and manage your space. Gladiator Garage Solutions makes this easy.

Flexibility and scalability are built in to the system. Gladiators Garage Storage Solutions had their eye on the future, even if you didn’t. They knew that you and your family would grow, they knew that your level of stuff would also grow and that’s why they designed a system that would grow along with you.
