When you're organizing your garage, you don't want to settle for the cheapest storage you can find.
You get what you buy; when you opt for cheaper products, it may cost you in the long run when you have to buy more storage to replace the products that didn't hold up. You and your garage are worth it—splurge on some exceptional organization gear!
Taking Advantage of Garage Overhead Space
If there's one place you definitely don't want cheap organization products, it's on your ceiling. Installing overhead storage is a great way to make use of often unused spaces and tidy up your garage. But you don't want to cross your fingers and hope it all doesn't come crashing down, denting your car or damaging your expensive gear. Splurge a little for a higher-end option, and feel at ease knowing your things will be safe.
Gear for Hoisting Your Gear
The Teal Triangle Elite Hoist is upgraded, expertly engineered, and built for all your storage needs. Whether you need to store the kayak you keep tripping over, the ladders you don't take out often, or the cargo box that gets used once a year, the Elite Hoist can do it all. It's great for the large and unwieldy items that are awkward (or impossible) to store on a rack. Even wheelbarrows and bikes can be hoisted.
This premium hoist option stands out from the others—it has a third bracket, a brake pulley plate, that makes lifting and lowering your gear easier. It also comes with a 75-foot-long rope, which is best for high ceilings and larger items.
With our improved version of the pulley system, we made the ceiling plates thinner, so you can get your gear closer to the ceiling than ever before. Now, you can hoist items in the space above your garage door, making storage space out of one area that usually isn't used to anything else.
Multipurpose Ceiling Racks
The Hi Port 2 is the rack of your dreams if you're looking to organize your garage. It's not that much more expensive than some other options, but we've included it in this list since it's so versatile, you may want to spring for more than just one.
This double-sided rack is good for just about anything: kayaks, paddleboards, ladders, lumber, skis, snowboards, and more. With a 90 rotational base, it can be mounted on ceiling joists that go in either direction, so it will work with just about any space. The arms have no-slip padding and a slight slope to grip your items gently and ensure they don't roll off the rack. Each side holds 75 lbs for a total of 150 lbs.
This rack is incredibly versatile. You'll no longer lean your gear against the garage wall or let it take up precious floor space.
When you get your things off the floor and stored overhead you'll get your garage back. Don't trust anything but high-quality products when you're storing items above your car.
Storing Watercraft in Your Garage: Kayaks, Paddleboards, Surfboards, and More

When you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on great gear for outdoor adventures, you need great storage that keeps it in the best shape possible.

Both of these options are perfect for renters and people who don't want to drill into their garage walls. Since they stand on their own, you can move them around as needed.
