We could not be happier with our new garage!! We highly recommend Jim and his crew. Everyone is extremely professional and they couldn't have been nicer. They did a great job and exceeded expectations all around!!!

- Lori, Deerfield, IL


We have been more than happy with the service and products received from The Garage Store team. From the initial consultation and estimate to the installation and final product, The Garage Store has been more than professional. We had our garage done four years ago and the attention we are still given when ordering more accessories or have questions is still amazing. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking to fix up your garage and wants to be treated with respect. We give The Garage Store 5 stars.

- Rebecca D, IL

- Mary ., IL


Jim and his crew at the Garage Store did a complete garage makeover for my garage, which turned out better than what I hoped for. I interviewed multiple companies and the Garage Store had the best ideas, best products and best price of everyone I had bid on the job. The floor coating is the envy of my neighborhood and worth every penny. I would highly recommend looking at the Garage Store for your makeover needs.

- Steve S., IL


I cannot say enough great things about the Garage Store Team. They made my cluttered garage look amazing! Their friendly and knowledgable staff took the time to listen to what my needs were and helped me select the right pieces to help organize my cluttered garage and now it looks fantastic!! Best part, they did it all within my budget. As I said, I can't say enough good things about the Garage Store team. I wish more companies out there were like this. If you've ever thought about giving your garage a makeover or you just simply want to organize it, don't wait and DON'T call anyone else but these guys, you will NOT be disappointed. I highly recommend them.

- Paul, IL


Highly recommended! Jim and his team really took the time to understand my needs and the end result is just fantastic! I only wish I would have done this sooner. The customer service is what sets these guys apart.

The Garage Store team was fantastic. They arrived on time to estimate the work that I needed. The price was fair. They did the job when they said that they would. The finished job exceeded my expectations. Nice job guys!

- Gary F., Chicago, IL


Great company front sales to install! They were the only company to come out that actually gave me a personalized layout after looking at what I needed to store. They took time and designed a layout that worked in my small garage space. The quality of the Gladiator product is even better than it looks online. The installers arrived as scheduled and worked with me and happily made a couple of changes on the fly. Another great thing is that they bring ALL the different hooks and stuff with so if you don't like the way it looks or where something is you just grab a different hook and put in a different place, no being locked into the stuff that looked good in the drawing but doesn't work in your space. They left my garage cleaner than it started! I highly recommend them!

- Geoff G., Elmhurst, IL


Jim and his Staff completely redesigned and refurbished our garage and the results were amazing. When we have our garage door open people continously stop by to compliment us and to find out who did the work (in fact one of our neighbors recently had Jim and his team work on his garage with the same outstanding results that we received). Jim is an honest person who can be trusted. He provides a fantastic value at a very reasonable cost. I highly recommend The Garage Store."

- Jack Jackson, Kenosha, WI


My wife and I were looking to do some work with our garage, when we found out that our neighbors across the street were using the Garage Store. We went over to take a look at the work that had been done and came away impressed with the results. We decided to contact them directly to get a quote to finish the detached garage (put up drywall for walls/ceiling, Gladiator gear wall, attic ladder, shelving/cabinets and concrete coating). The job was priced to specs and the cost was in line for the work required. The Garage Store team handled the project well, had some great ideas including the heavy lift and addressed some issues that arose and the results were great! Quite a transformation with finished walls/ceiling, the new cabinets, more space adaptable accessories and brand new textured polymer floor that will last a lifetime - it all blends well with our house and paved driveway.

We would recommend the Garage Store for their professionalism and quality service!!

- Rodger and Francine, Park Ridge, IL


Could not be more impressed with Garage Store! Garage floor is done-looks great, staff was great, communication was good! Highly, highly recommend Garage Stoor and their flooring! Football season is set in my garage!

- Eric in Plainfield, IL


“This is my second time using Garage Store. They showed up on time, understood exactly I wanted and delivered it. I would recommend them to enhance your garage experience. “

- Jeff Heine, Carpentersville IL


The Garage Store was the RIGHT choice for us in helping find a solution to our organization/clutter issues. Jim came to see the garage. He really took our wants/needs to heart and came up with ideas that worked well. He did not try to oversell me on extras. The installation was seamless and efficient. The end product is exactly what I had hoped for when we started the process. I would definitely recommend this company to friends and family for their garage storage/organization projects

- Sunny


My first experience with Garage Store -They knew exactly what to ask throughout the process from beginning to end to ensure there were no surprises. Great at design, answered all questions flexible to discuss modifications,helpful and knowledgeable. They came up with great ideas and solutions to make the most of my garage! All I need is a new Rolls Royce to put in it. When the project was done, they cleaned everything. Looks like a first class product time will tell.

- Joe Gillespie, Itasca, IL


We truly love our "new" garage. The thought had never occurred to us that this type of service was even available. Seeing and hearing other testimonials encouraged us to proceed. The entire process was easy, staff always professional, & the results are terrific. We are the talk of our neighborhood now. We highly recommend Garage-Store!

- C, T, P Caruso


If you're interested in any garage re-organization or re-modeling, I highly recommend this company. The sales staff, management, and installers are incredibly professional, prompt, and do amazing work. We didn't have a HUGE project, but were still treated as though we were extremely valued customers. The guys gave great suggestions along the way, and my husband was thrilled with this surprise birthday present!

Look Mom, after our Garage Makeover from Garage Store, I organized all my stuff!

I wanted to thank Garage Store and the two gentleman that refurbished my garage floor this month. My garage floor was starting to become very unattractive as the concrete was deteriorating. I had 3 other estimates but felt you were the most knowledgeable and professional when you came out to give me the estimate. The garage floor turned out better than I had anticipated and I have already had 4 neighbors come over to look at the transformation. The two floor technicians arrived promptly each day and worked extremely hard despite the 90+ degree heat they had to endure. They showed pride in their work ! I will be sure to pass your company name along to anyone that may be interested.

- Steve Gutmann -Glenview, Il.


We greatly appreciated the time Garage Store spent educating us on polymer coating systems for our facility. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and friendly. The flooring system Garage Store installed was phenomenal!!!! We would highly recommend them to anyone!!

- Hebron-Alden-Greenwood F.P.D.


We couldn't be happier with our new basement floor. The guys at Garage Store were terrific. They were very attentive to what we wanted, very punctual and polite, and they did great work. The new floor is exactly what we'd hoped for and looks even better than I'd imagined. I would recommend Garage Store without hesitation.

- Patrick Fitzmaurice

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job your guys did. Your installers were awesome! They made suggestions on the spot and were very friendly. They were 2 of the best contractors I have ever worked with.

I needed two garages built out in a new construction house.

I called Garage Store because my daughter was very pleased with the work Garage Store did in their garage. She highly recommended Mike Thimios as the designer and installer that did a terrific job for her. I met Mike at the site of the new construction well in advance of the garages being ready for Garage Store's work. Mike was more than happy to help me with ideas and the design of the Gladiator wall and cabinet system I wanted. We worked together on the design plans for a couple of months, and Mike was patient with my every tweak.

The Gladiator system had a sufficiently wide variety of alternative equipment to meet my every need for outfitting the two garages, and I found Garage Store's pricing to be fair and reasonable. As a result, I signed a contract with Garage Store to do the work, with a small deposit to lock in the price and the installation date scheduled four months out. On installation day, Mike himself showed up to help with the installation. Mike and his crew knew exactly what they were doing and did an outstanding job, down to every last detail. Their measurements were precise and they delivered and installed exactly what they had promised, exactly as I had specified it. Their workmanship was neat, clean, and efficient. I couldn't be more satisfied with the results! I would recommend Garage Store to anyone looking to do a first class job in outfitting their garage, at a reasonable price.

We love our new GARAGE STORE basement floor!

Our 1925 basement, with a slab floor, was not a place where anyone would want to spend time. It was hard to keep clean and smelled musty. Our basement proved to be a quite challenge for GARAGE STORE and the flooring crew, thankfully throughout the process, which ended up being more time intensive than expected, the communication was outstanding.

Eventually things came together and the GARAGE STORE team worked with us to find the right solution for our needs. Since GARAGE STORE installed our new floor it is easy to keep clean and the musty odor is gone. Our basement is now a usable part of our home thanks to GARAGE STORE!

The whole process was painless from my email, to the appointment setup, to the installation. All done in a matter of 72 hours.

I thought of this on a Friday and by noon on Monday, I was storing all the junk on my garage floor in overhead storage racks. Tony said, I wouldn't even know he was there and he was right. An hour later, he knocked on my door and he was done. Customer service and installation was excellent and I will definitely call back for additional needs in my garage!

Total professionals every step of the way!

Dan Klinkhamer St. Charles, IL


Recently we had our garage floor done by Garage Store. We couldn't be more pleased with the results. It looks terrific!

Jared and Val did a great job. They were efficient and obviously take pride in their work. Everyone who has seen it agrees that it looks great and should be easy care.

Thanks to everyone at Garage Store.

Jim and Charlotte Kirby DeKalb, IL


First of all, let me say how pleased I have been with Pete, Josh and Tony. Josh's knowledge of your products was indispensible and resulted in me getting exactly what I was looking for, and you selling a lot more product than what I initially ordered. As far as I'm concerned, that's a big win for both of us!

Both days of my install were hot and muggy, but Josh and Tony stuck it out and really did an excellent job under very difficult conditions. I had to practically force the two of them to even take a lunch break!

Thanks again for the great job your company has done. I will strongly recommend you to my friends.

Rich Egen Glenview, IL


Just want to send a quick note to tell you how great our new garage floor looks. Your wonderful and professional crew did a fantastic job of refurbishing our old cracked and peeling garage floor and made it look like a brand new showroom floor. We are so proud now to show off the new garage floor to all our friends, family and neighbors. The new floor is so easy to clean and maintain.

I think we have to buy a new car now to go with our beautiful new garage floor. We'll certainly be hosting our family cook-outs in the garage from now on as well.

Thanks again for exceeding our expectations with the amazing job you have done in our garage. Feel free to use us as a reference for future business.

Bob and Sharon Andrlik Dell Webb Sun City, Huntley, Illinois


Thank you for my new garage floor! It's easy to clean and keep clean, its amazing! I am also impressed with its looks, but just as impressed with the way my questions and concerns were handled through your business. I was treated very well from start to finish. The men who followed through with every part of the service cared as much about their work as I do about my home. This was a treasure of a combination to find! Thank you again to all at Garage Store for a pleasant and wonderful outcome in every aspect! You will be most highly recommended from me, but what my friends, family and neighbors are seeing speaks for itself! I never thought I would enjoy ooohs and aaahs over my garage...but I do!!

Suzanne Otto, Kenosha

Our overall experience with Garage Store was excellent. We were very impressed with the original consultation with Jim, his dedication to us and all the ideas he offered to maximize storage in our garage. We also appreciated the patience of Garage Store and the crew as we determined our exact needs. We are so happy with the final results of our new garage floor and storage systems! I recommend this company to everyone.


The flooring system Garage Store installed over our 34 year old concrete garage floor is absolutely beautiful. The work was performed professionally over a two day period and the finished product exceeded our expectations. Color coordination to our walls and paneling in the garage matched perfectly. Thank you for your excellent service and reasonable pricing.

Rick Schmidgall Transportation Coordinator/Fleet Manager


I wanted to drop you a note and tell you how happy we are with the Gladiator products you installed in our new garage.

For the first time in my life my garage is organized, clean, and neat. Thanks!

For years, I had a vision of what I wanted to do with our 3 1/2 car garage, and I struggled to find a product or company that could satisfy all of my requirements.

After a brief on-site visit with Jim, I found both the ideal product and company to help me realize that dream.

The Garage Store team, in particular, Dan and Tony, understood what I wanted to do with the garage; they fine-tuned the design to maximize the use of my space while saving me a substantial amount of money (which I'll probably spend on a polyaspartic floor with them in the Spring!). In short, Garage Store understands the value of customer service and attention to detail which is reflected in their work.

Jim, from one military man to another... thanks again for helping me to make my garage "dress right dress".

The garage looks great!

Job well done!

AJ, Cary IL


Our family was growing, and our garage was packed to the gills. Our three-car garage could only fit two cars because of all of our stuff! With winter approaching, we looked for help. We are so happy we found Garage Store!

From our first consultation, we were completely at ease with the process. We were impressed by the knowledge and ingenuity of the staff. The vast array of potential designs was at first overwhelming, but we soon developed a great plan, with the help of the design team. For instance, our family races radio-controlled cars, and my workshop had overtaken a corner of the garage. Garage Store suggested mounting all 25 cars on a Gladiator gearwall system, we saved a ton of floor space!

The Monster Rax overhead storage were perfect for getting our big items off the floor, and are easily accessible. I am happy to say that all three cars are safe and warm inside our garage for the winter. (Actually, if you count the R/C cars, I tell my friends I have a 28 car garage!) We couldn't be happier with our new garage system from the Garage Store!

Brian Lahmann, Westmont IL


"Dear Jim, Thank you so much for the wonderful customer service. We are delighted with our new organized garage. The bike lifts, gear track system and moveable overhead storage racks make it easy for me to keep everything up and away but easily accessible when we need it. I am so happy we are able to park our cars inside the garage now and that you were available to install the systems right away. Your assessment of our storage needs and design/placement was excellent. Thank you again I will recommend you to all my neighbors."

Lisa Agan, Northbrook IL


"We had a wonderful experience working with all the staff at Garage Store. Their products are, in our opinion, the best ones out there. It is not only the products that really impressed us, it is the customer service. Jim is very knowledgeable about everything and we could tell when we first met him that he was going to be there every step of the way. This company far surpasses any and all expectations we had. They always returned our phone calls either the same day, or the very next day.

Their concern for our satisfaction did not end when the payment was received. We had a couple of minor concerns and they were right there to address those as soon as they said they would be. They also completed the work exactly when they said they would, unlike many other companies that drag the process on and on.

They are not in this business just for the money. We know this for a fact because we had a question about a product they were selling and they told us, for what we wanted to use it for, it would not be very useful. They could have easily just sold it to us and got their money, but that is NOT what happened.

In our opinion, they are the best out there because they care about customer satisfaction, before, during, and after a project, not just making a sale.

Thanks so much for everything. We've said it before, you guys are the BEST."

Keith and Julie, see for yourself why they are so pleased with their new garage cabinets and flooring.


"I am so happy with my garage makeover from the Garage Store. Very professional in every aspect from design to installation!"

Todd Koster, Kenosha


"...it was their prep work that I felt was too important to try myself and that it was this aspect that made me realize I had to outsource this project..."

"...I could appreciate how careful Jerad was to make sure the heavy machines were properly secured to the side walls of the trailer. These may seem like small points, but it told me they are serious about their work and didn't cut corners."

Larry Hopman, Northbrook


"I am very much satisfied with the refinished garage floor. The two Garage Store technicians (I'll call them technicians because they knew their job quite well) were efficient and exacting in their work.

I am particularly pleased with the repair to the damaged apron area at the end of the concrete control joint. The concrete was broken out to a depth of about 2" or so and encompassed an area of more than 1 Sq. foot. I was skeptical that it could successfully be repaired since another floor refinishing company said that the entire concrete apron area needed to be replaced with new concrete before they could put down the finish. Doing this would have added another $800 to the cost of refinishing. But you guys repaired it without any problem.

The availability of a trailer from Garage Store in which to store tools and other "stuff" while the work was being completed was an added benefit.

Thanks again for a job well done. Heck, even my wife likes the floor.

Vince Romanco, Naperville


"After spending weeks shopping the big box stores and national chains, with their limited selection of products and services, I discovered GARAGE STORE, where I finally found the expertise and customer service attitude I was looking for.

The product options and services they offered was backed by professionals, who could provide the design solution I needed, to achieve the custom looking fit and finish I wanted.

The GARAGE STORE team was able to design a turnkey solution including site preparation, delivery, and installation to transform my garage, from a cluttered mess to a clean and organized work space, that not only makes my garage a functional showcase, but also adds value to my home.

It’s been great to deal with a local team of professionals who are focused on quality workmanship and customer satisfaction.

Thanks to GARAGE STORE for helping me get my space-ORGANIZED!"

Randy


"My garage floor has been refinished, and I couldn't be more pleased. It is beautiful. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to neighbors and friends. I love how my floor looks now. Many thanks to you all."

Victoria


"Thank you for helping me to make my husband's birthday so special this year. I walked in your store the first week you were open, and our garage was fully installed just a couple weeks after that initial conversation. I feel you went above and beyond to ensure that I was tremendously happy with everything.

Everyone's effort came together so that when my husband came home he was blown away with the transformation. Our filthy, cluttered garage was amazingly transformed into the ultimate workspace, where my husband has ample room to store things, and the flexibility to adjust it as he wishes.

I couldn't have done it without all of you. Thank you again!"
