The Garageflex Pledge

When you have a Garageflex installation in your garage, these are the things we promise to do.  And just some of the reasons why our customers love doing business with us.

        Punctuality – Once your installation is agreed, we’ll give you a start date and time and we will arrive promptly to begin the work.  Always.

         Quality – We use only quality products and each comes with a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty.   If there is a question over any product, we’ll change it with no fuss.

         Reliability – We provide you with plans and costs for the work to be carried out with no hidden fees.  The quote will show you to the penny how much it will be and what is involved.

          Service – Our installation team are hard-working, reliable and quality carpenters in their own right.  You will be told who is in charge on-site and they will be available for you to speak to for the duration of the project, making sure it goes smoothly from start to finish.

         30 day Guarantee – If you don’t like any of your items or they don’t suit your requirements within 30 days of the installation date, we’ll remove them and credit the full amount.  Guaranteed.

But don’t just take our word for it.  Why not view some of our customer testimonials to see what they say about us or view a video of one happy customer in Gerrards Cross.


How a Garageflex System Works

We often get asked lots of questions by new customers as to how our system works.  So today’s blog sets out to answer them.  If you have any further questions for us, we would be delighted to answer them for you.  Just contact us at or call the friendly team in the office on 01491 636080.


Q. What is FlexiPanel?

A. FlexiPanel is the foundation for the Garageflex system.  It is a durable, glossy wall panel on which the other system elements are attached.  Our FlexiPanel was designed to be the world’s cleanest.  It is waterproof, weatherproof, bug proof and fire rated.  It won’t warp or rot in the garage.  In fact our FlexiPanel is a solid piece, coloured white all the way through, so it won’t scratch, dent or rust.  And of course, Flexipanel is backed by our 10 year warranty.


Q. Can I install the system myself?

A. Yes you can. Whilst the Garageflex system was designed for professional installation it can be installed by the DIY enthusiast who has a basic skill – and time!  There is a comprehensive installation guide on the online store and most product, including our patented FlexiPanel, can be purchased online here too.


Q. I am building a new house. How soon should we talk to you about the garage?

A. As soon as possible and preferably while you are planning everything.  There is a lot of useable space in the garage but quite often the walls will be used for plant and electrics. This takes away that space so there may be ways of re-arranging the electrics etc. into a plant room.  The garage will always be the last area to be completed but planning it can be very useful.  And always make sure the door(s) are wide enough for your car!


Q. How much will it cost?

A. This depends on the size of garage, and the height and length of wall space that you want covered in our FlexiPanel system.  All garages are different but in a brief telephone conversation we shall be able to give you a very good idea, based on our experience.


Q. Is it easy to keep clean?

A. Absolutely.  If you have had all the walls, ceiling and floor installed then it stays a lot cleaner anyway.  We recommend the floor tiles are cleaned with a floor cleaning solution but the walls only need a light dust occasionally.


Q. Do you offer a Warranty?

A. Yes we offer a 10 year warranty on all our products.


Q. What happens if I move house?

A. Firstly your garage will offer a real “wow” factor so make the most of it when you market your house.  You can then include everything in the sale or take whatever units you want to your next home.  Obviously if you take units with you, then you will need the FlexiPanel in your new house.  But make sure the Agents know what you are leaving and what you are taking.


Q. How can I find out more?

A.  You can request a free online brochure by clicking here, you can give us a call on 01491 636080 or email us at


Q. Can you give me a quote please?

A. Yes certainly we can give you a no obligation quote.  This will involve a visit by a Garageflex expert who will talk over with you the options and designs, will measure your garage and then, using our own Garageflex software will give you detailed drawings and costs of the garage.  You will be left a drawing of exactly how your garage will look after the Garageflex system has been installed.

Introducing the Garageflex Range of Storage Boxes and Recycling Bins

Since we started transforming UK garages back in 2005, we have always asked our customers what else they would like us to stock.  There was a resounding vote for recycling bins to be added to our range and we are delighted that these items are now available via our e-store.

Our range includes a Triple 110 Litre Recycling Bin which allows you to sort waste into three separate bins and is floor mounted. Or choose from one of our 82 Litre Recycling Bins which come in three formats, an open slot lid, a propeller lid or a lift lid. We feel this covers a good range of recycling needs but are always open to further suggestions!

Other recent additions are general storage boxes, now available in 18, 35 or 48 litre capacities. All are made from polypropylene and are easy to stack and store. The 48 and 18 litres fit particularly well on our 48” and 24” shelves.

Or if you are looking for a more general storage solution but don’t want to spend too much, why not consider our GT576 General Storage Lifestyle kit. It comes with a 56” piece of FlexiTrack which is a strip of panel that fixes to your wall and can be placed anywhere in the garage. The kit also comes with a basket, some hooks, brackets and wall clips. Perfect for starting your de-cluttering journey at only £109.00 plus P&P.


Our e-store is open to everyone, not just our customers who have FlexiPanel installed on their walls. We stock many items that can be used on their own including ceiling storage for getting ladders, timber or other bulky items you want to get off the floor and out of the way.
We would also love your feedback. What else would you like to see on our e-store? Tell us and we promise to look into it!
