This short film clip shows Garageflex on BBC’s Working lunch in February 2009.
We’ve had kitchen makeovers, bathroom makeovers and now there’s the garage makeover. It’s an American idea that’s catching on in the UK.
This customer says his garage was previously messy and cold with a cement floor. Because cars are his hobby he wanted a nice environment in which to enjoy it and feels that Garageflex has given him a complete garage transformation. It’s gone from a dark, cold damp garage to something that he can use every day and even have an office in there if he wanted to.
Alastair Broom from near Marlow in Buckinghamshire has bought the UK rights for Garageflex and is beginning to build up a thriving business. A double garage refit like the one in the video costs around £7,500.00 in February 2009.
During the tougher times of recession Garageflex aim to cover a wider spectrum and now offer appeal to people who may want to do just one wall rather than a full garage. They are also offering a DIY system which can bring the price down.
Garageflex are now branching out around the country and taking smaller orders. Enquiries are coming from Aberdeen, Glasgow and Liverpool.
