How much wasted storage space do you have in your garage? Most people know about wall storage options (pegboards, slatwall systems, etc.) - but they might not think about using all the available ceiling space. Another option that's easy to overlook involves getting heavy items off the floor. Here are some of the options available to help use all your garage space.
Onrax sells overhead storage racks, as shown above. [photo from ProMAX Garage, which sells the Onrax products]
MonsterRAX is another garage ceiling rack.
And HyLoft also has ceiling racks.
ToteTrac also makes use of ceiling space, but in a very different way.
Then there are the lifts. Racor sells the HeavyLift, which has a hand crank. Racor also has a bike and ladder lift.
The Loft-It storage lift system is motorized; the video shows it in action.
Nu-Cab has the SkyPod elevating storage cabinet - yet another design. The web site has an animation to show how the product works. Update on May 10, 2010: I'm no longer finding Nu-Cab on the web.
