    I'm out of time (and don't have a truck) so I ended up throwing money at the problem. Thanks though!

    Lol, always a viable backup solution

    I emptied a 5x10 storage unit so my moto shed is once again a mess, without enough space to work on a bike.

    Clean, Organize, mess up, repeat.

    My next solution is to buy another property

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    Any recommendations for wall mounted shelves?

    Would need to anchor into concrete. I have all the tools to do so properly. Something adjustable and not full wall height. I can supply wood for the actual shelving, I'm looking for rail/bracket style setups.

    I would go with something like this:
    https://www.lowes.com/pd/Style-Selec...pright/4640129

    Pretty cheap, they can go out to 24” OC and the brackets can support good weight. Brackets are pretty cheap as well, seems legit. I just did the non adjustable L brackets directly into the studs with 3/4 plywood 16” deep, has worked well. This system looks better for sure.

    first, I built a 2x4 insulated walls with drywall, so that I wasn't dealing with fastening to concrete, studs 16" on center, my shelf brackets every other stud, the shelf above my workbench is 18" deep, made out of 5/4 pine, I got some heavy stuff on it, batteries, boxes of parts, I noticed it was sagging, so I added a cable stay every 64", now it's perfectly level and flat, I attached an 8ft led strip underneath to light the workbench. my first attempt at cable stays was a failure, I bought too light a cable, and weak hardware. Couldn't even get it level, as I tightened the turnbuckle, I watched the cable fray apart and eye hooks stretch. I went up to 1/8" cable and compatible hardware,

    I wouldn't trust the adjustable brackets on rails (unless it's some industrial setup) for the weight I am storing, tools, batteries, gallons of paint and other liquids. for a bookshelf, sure, but even books will fatigue the brackets and the slots on the rails over time, I figure if my brackets fatigue over time, I just tighten up on the cable stays

    Pretty minimalist these days in the main garage.

    We have a 60k sqft fab shop 8 miles from home so we donít need much here.

    i would look on CL services or marketplace...or try posting the pavers for free on a local FB group...even try the scrap wood...someone may pick it up to burn in their fire pit...i've gotten rid of a bunch of kids stuff that way...

    i think the price of a pickup for these is a little high (almost $300)...could get a dumpster rental for a little more...

    I posted on Yelp and ended up getting someone for $300 + a small tip. He was a good dude.

    Any recommendations on bike storage? Will be for my mtb and kids bikes. Would need to store 4 bikes. Does it need to be more complicated than those screw in J hooks?

    Hey dude! How'd it end up? Who'd you end up going with and what'd it run you if you don't mind me asking?

    Jealous. I'm about to embark on a home renovation project and one of the items is to add another garage bay. I think I'm going to do a lift as well.

    I ended up going with Boston Garage. I think it was about $5500 and it looks amazing. I got probably 5-6 quotes and to be honest they were all within $500 of each other. Boston Garage had the best availability and said they did the most of them (like, several hundred garages a year). Of course, I have no way to verify that number.

    I like the hoop ones I use better than the hooks. I think they are for weed Wackers. You can get them at Lowe's or home Depot

    Oof... That's a grand or two more than I expected.

    But how many square feet are we talkin? Was it the garage I saw when I grabbed those shelving units?
    Did they have to make any concrete repairs beforehand or just sand it out & lay the product?

    Yeah, it's the garage you saw. I would call around and ask some companies: the prices tend to be "$XXX per bay", but my prices were a little higher as my bays are unusually deep. Minor concrete repairs were included in the cost.
