Garage Living Shows How Auto Storage at Home Can Pay - Tax Free

Share Article

Making a garage more than just a garage is an investment in the home.

For a few years now, homeowners have begun to realize the potential of a garage, but for the discerning owner with a collector vehicle, vintage or elite sports car, a custom designed and fitted garage has a huge upside - it's an investment that pays back.

Putting a car in storage for the winter can be a costly venture, as it's an expense that reoccurs annually. While winter storage protects a vehicle and preserves the investment, the cost is unredeemable. Retrofitting a home's garage does quite the opposite - not only can it be designed to protect expensive vehicles; any increase to a home's value is a tax-free benefit to the homeowner.

"Typically, the ongoing expense of winter storage of vehicles, far surpass the cost of retrofitting a home's garage," says Aaron Cash. "By making use of the walls and ceiling it is easy to increase the useable floor space and improve the curb appeal of the home and garage for much less."

By keeping the car close and accessible, it's convenient for use or to perform off-season improvements.

"There are so many benefits to garage storage and organization, however, for the homeowner that's used to paying out of pocket for seasonal vehicle storage, there's a huge upside when it's stored at home," says Aaron. "The costs associated with turning a home's garage into the ideal storage facility merely become an investment into one's primary residence - an investment that's fully redeemable at a later time."

In addition to supplying and installing wall organizers, overhead storage units and flooring products, Garage Living also offers car lifts that can be used to store a seasonal vehicle while still allowing other vehicles to be parked inside. This is the most popular and reliable lift in North America, and does not need to be anchored to the floor. With three drip trays, one jack tray, a caster kit and ability to safely store vehicles both on top and beneath the lift, it is clearly multi-functional.
