Every garage tends to have certain pieces of equipment and particular tools that make everyday tasks easier. If you are stocking your garage and organising your equipment, it makes sense to have some of these items in your garage. You will also want to ensure that you can access these items easily and if your garage door is looking a little worse for wear why not contact a Garage Doors Cheltenham who can install a new one for you.
1. A ladder
A ladder can help with many tasks, such as cleaning gutters, checking the roof and changing light bulbs. You might need two ladders of different heights or an extending ladder.
2. Work gloves
Don’t underestimate the importance of a pair of good quality work gloves. They should be tough enough to protect your skin but flexible so you can grip tools.
3. Nails and screws
A collection of nails and screws is always useful. It is best to organise them carefully and store them in jars with labels.
4. A claw hammer
A basic claw hammer is ideal for any garage as it can be used for all sorts of jobs, such as hammering in nails – and removing them later.
5. A spanner
A spanner is a tool that can be used to loosen or tighten a bolt, screw or nut to help with many odd jobs. This is a garage must-have.
6. A garden hose
A hose is a useful item that can be great for watering large areas. Hoses are also good for washing the car. Hang it coiled up on a big hook for easy storage.
7. Spare motor oil
Motor oil is often found in many home garages and can be useful for topping up the car or van. Car equipment is also ideal for storing in the garage, as are bike spares and sport-related items.
8. Toolbox and tools
A toolbox is a vital piece of kit for any home or garage. The toolbox should have all your tool essentials, such as spanner, hammer, nails, metallic tape measure, pliers and screwdrivers – http://www.bbc.co.uk/homes/diy/toolkit.shtml.
9. Dustpan and brushes
As well as regular tools, you need a good sturdy dustpan and brush to clean up all sorts of messes and debris. It is also good to have big brushes of various sizes to clean the floors.
