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 Jason 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!

Lightweight but flimsy

We have 14 chickens and 3 ducks in a large 2 compartment coop with 2 chicken houses.

This coop is too small for more than 6 chickens at night

Our wood pieces keep breaking;
Like:
The roof slats on the nesting boxes
The wooden blocks that hold up the perches

The coop should be:
Higher for the chickens to go under the coop
or
Lower so they can’t go under to avoid being caught.

Flatter roofs that open and stay tilted up would be convenient for holding things to be worked on like a slanted table top.

The second nesting box is unnecessary.

Overall dimensions of 4’ x 6’ would be more useable and fit in a pickup.

A 4’ x 8’ ‘tractor’ run that clips on would be great!

Assembly should be done with glue to prevent the wood from breaking
~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>

Our favorite chicken house is 5’ x 8’ with 4 nesting boxes.

It is made from a full sized pickup bed with concrete blocks underneath on 4 corners and a slight slant out the tailgate.

It is covered with an insulated camper shell roof with sliding windows. The shell tilts open sideways or from the rear tailgate window.

Cardboard box sheets make a perfect non slip floor covering.

4 Roosting bars are 5’ long and go the width of the bed.

It is easy to empty, spray clean and sterilize.

It easily accommodates 8-40 chickens on the roosts alone!

We very much prefer it!

When we replace this chicken house, it will be 4’x6’ with a 4 section nest box and have a full tilting flat roof that can be used as a work table for filling containers or working in the coop area on projects.

Simpler is better!

Nice Awning

The shipping was free and fast. Product arrived with no damage and all the parts, Very nice product and good construction. Directions for assembly are not clear and at times down right confusing. Some of the factory assembled parts were put together wrong/upside down, which added to the confusion and installation time since they had to be disassembled then assembled properly. Overall we are very pleased with the product.

Gate is great, not so much the service

Website said ships in 3, only Garage Dept knew darn well that the gate was back-ordered, and there was a 5-6 week wait. Even after complaining, they still didnt change the website. By the time the gate arrived aftef 6 weeks the contractor we had working the area where tgge gate is going was long done and gone. Now we wait again to get on his busy summer schedule.

Aleko RV Awning

Package arrived with all the parts. As stated by others, the directions were poor to say the least. It took longer than I wanted but completed the install and the awning works great. I am happy with the product and it was a fraction of the cost of other awnings. The only complaint is the instruction manual, I think Aleko should spend the time to put together a good manual and a how to video. Garage Door Outlet was great. Prompt communication.
