About Us

There's nothing like the special bond of shopping at a family-owned, local business.

Garage Department was inspired from the friendly-neighborhood garage tool, organization, and hardware store we all grew up in many years ago.

However, as an online retailer serving the entire USA, everyone is our neighbor!

While many big box hardware stores are great on price and convenience, they lack personal customer service and quality, expert assistance.

At Garage Department, we combine convenient free shipping, easy returns, and rock bottom pricing with the absolute best customer service in the industry. 

Every day, we strive to give each customer the experience they deserve, just like a local mom & pop shop.

Our Story

Garage Department was created in 2014 by three cousins who felt it was necessary to fill the gaps other retailers in the industry were leaving wide open. Co-owner Jared grew up with a father who was a mechanic, and at a young age was always helping around the garage.

Whether it was organizing his tool boxes, storage centers, or getting under the hood, he was always there watching, learning, and organizing. After over 20 years of experience in his fathers garage, as well as his own, it became clear how important a well organized garage is and how difficult life can be without the right tools. 

Our Mission

While a well structured garage is important for a man's sanity, unfortunately sometimes storage centers and tool cabinets can be very expensive.

It our mission to provide the highest quality products online for the lowest prices on the market. We want to ensure everyone has their dream garage, regardless of their budget.

We will also be striving to provide top quality advice on garage organization so every customer knows how to stretch their dollar as far as possible.

Satisfaction and Support Are Always Our Top Priority

If you ever have a question, don't hesitate to call, send an email, or even contact our live support.

We have a dedicated, U.S. based garage experts available around the clock to provide you assistance, just like any friendly neighbor would. Owners Mike, Joe, and Jared spend a lot of time in the office making sure each customer is satisfied.

Thank you for stopping by, and we invite you to make yourself at home!

Excellent Gate Opener

This was a very easy installation and everything works as expected.

The receiver was shipped with a jumper in the wrong position

When I first hooked up the sensor to the opener, the opener behaved not at all like it was supposed to. After some consternation I finally figured out that the receiver must not be set in the NO configuration, which was called for in the owners manual. After looking at the circuit board in the receiver with a magnifier, I discovered a tiny wire jumper which was in the NC position. It was after I moved that jumper to the NO position that the opener behaved properly. Nothing in the manual mentioned anything about the existence of this jumper, where to look for it, and what to do with it.

gate + pedestrian gate

It won't be put up for a couple more months.

Exactly as Expected

The light drop-shipped direct from the manufacturer. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. This will be my first run with it but I have friends that use them in commercial applications with outstanding results.
