Looking back, it seems like a logical thing - first there were kitchen companies and bathroom companies, and the latest franchise opportunity growing in the US at present is a garage-renovation system known as GarageTek: a customisable modular storage system based on slotted TekPanel PVC wall panels to which a range of bracketless shelves, tool racks, bins and overhead cabinets large enough for a Jet Ski can be attached. The modules can be simply adjusted to cater for changing storage needs and are made from moulded, fire-resistant thermo-plastic. A typical installation takes one day and costs US$1500- $2000 installed with accessories - not cheap but there's a ten year guarantee and its all relative to DIY or engaging a builder. It's just the thing to house your prestige car, and an ideal comeback next time kitchen renovations are discussed. Unfortunately GarageTek has not yet appointed a local distributor.
