With installations suspended for the time being, we thought it might be nice to look back on those we have completed over the past few weeks.
Surrey Garage – Get Ready to say WOW!
This lovely garage was completed in early March for a lovely couple in Surrey. To see more, visit the full case study.
Hampshire Garageflex Essentials Installation
With freestanding open shelving, FlexiTrack on the wall to hold plenty of hooks and a tiled floor, this Hamphire garage is a prime example of our new Essentials range and how it can help you to organise your garage.

Floor Tile Installation
Having seen a neighbours garage, the owners of this double garage in the West Midlands wanted to upgrade their current floor. It took one day for our fitters to lay this lovely dark and light grey floor using our fantastic range of floor tiles. They were so delighted with the finished floor that they gave us this glowing testimonial and we couldn’t be happier!

Finished this week, just before lockdown, this Resin Floor reallyl makes a difference in this brand new garage. Find out more about our Resin Floors here.
We have two more case studies shortly to go live and we’ll blog about those next week to keep sharing ideas and inspiration!
Hope everyone is staying safe.
With all of the Government guidance on social distancing and only going out for essentials such as food and medicine, we are trialling doing our Design Consultations by either FaceTime or Skype.
MD Alastair Broom has now completed two FaceTime Consultations and both were very successful. The customers were able to show Alastair around their garages and discuss their problems. Alastair was then able to provide advice, guidance and answer questions straight away.
In addition, the customers measured up their garages and gave those to Alastair during the call. A full design presentation was sent back within a few hours.
If you would like to try this, then do give us a call on 01491 579975 to set it up.
Following Government advice, Garageflex offices are now closed until further notice.
We are working from our homes so if you would liked details or information on our services please take a look around our website, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01491 579975.
These are unprecedented and surreal times for us all and we believe this is the correct decision. The quicker we isolate and are careful the quicker we will all be back up and running
Thanks for your patience and understanding and please stay safe everyone.

The return of the sunshine may bring thoughts of Spring cleaning and decluttering. This can help re-invigorate your life by cleaning out and getting rid of winter bugs, pollen and dust. But how can you apply this clean-up to the garage? We are glad you asked, we have just the answer…
A typical garage has plenty of storage space if you put the walls and ceiling to good use. Making it a clean and organised space rather then a dumping ground is certainly something to strive for. The hardest part is probably taking the first step. But if you don’t have the time or inclination to do it yourself, then there are specialists who will come in and declutter for you. Here are some tips to help ‘spring’ you into action this weekend.
Whether you have a spare half hour or a longer period, be realistic about what you can achieve in the time period. De-cluttering can feel a bit overwhelming so give yourself manageable tasks.
Start with one particular area, whether it be the entrance to your garage or the area that will take the least amount of effort. Psychologically this may help you deal with the rest of the area at a later date. Next, sort the items into three piles: one pile to keep, one pile to get rid of and a third pile for which you are not quite sure. Ask yourself, will I ever use this again? If you think not then perhaps its time to get rid of it.
You can consider things like Freecycle, your local charity shop, a car boot sale, ebay or if the item is in bad condition then perhaps a skip or local tip. Its always a good idea to recycle where possible and after all one person’s rubbish is another’s treasure!
With the ‘not sure’ pile its best to go through it again another day and see if you have any further thoughts on whether you will use the item again. If you are still unsure then its best to box it up with the date and contents written on the outside and make a note on your calendar to look at it again in six months time. If by this time you still haven’t used it, then it may become a recyclable item!
Once you’ve got everything out or at least know what you are going to keep, it is time to give the garage a scrub. Try hoovering up all the cobwebs on the floor, walls and ceiling, it is amazing what a difference this can make. Clean the floor with water, a cleaning fluid and broom to get rid of the dust and grime.
Finally it is time to put everything back. For those items that you are going to keep, the task is now about proper storage so you can easily find it when you need it. We think creating zones in your garage such as DIY, Gardening, Kids, Crafts, Home etc. are a good place to start and also invest in some good quality storage solutions. Cabinets that fit on the wall or floor are a good option to tidy things away and keep them out of sight. Or a selection of baskets or shelves may be all you need. Take a look at our range of storage solutions which might give you some inspiration on what to choose for your garage.
The hard work is done, it is now time to put everything back and reap the benefits of a clean, tidy and organised garage space.
