I'm renovating the garage in preparation for a westy purchase in the next few months. The garage is a single skin detached double. When I bought the house the first thing I did, whilst it was empty, was prime and paint the floor and gave the walls a coat of white paint(god that took ages). I sorted out decent lighting and a heavy duty workbench at the back. In the following 5 years it fell into a bit of a dumping ground and has become home to a washing machine, 2 freezers a fridge and numerous pieces of furniture that I've been promised are going to be up cycled. There is also my woodworking tools such as a table saw, router table and vac. So, a lot of stuff to sort out. The washing machine and freezer will be sold though the big fridge freezer stays. (it holds beer, wine, ice and meat). The furniture has been sorted and not taking up much space on the side wall. I may even use it to sore bits in. If you were setting out a garage for the first time what would you recommend? What do you wish you had more of/less of. Any tools/equipment that are must haves? (I have the normal compressor, torque wrenches, ratchet spanners etc.) any good storage solutions out there? I seem to collect so much stuff it's unreal. I am in the process of getting rid of a lot of it.. Looking for some guidance based on your experiences.
I'm looking to sell my trusted Brian James Minno Max trailer. It's got all the extras bar a Jerry can store and a tyre rack and comes with two attached spares (one blown). It had a service last year. There are some rubber marks and minor dents on the mudguard from the blow out, nothing that a fella with the skills could not rectify. Other than that it's as honest as the day is long and has served me well. You can't really get these anymore so a bit like hen's teeth! Brochure here... My car is a wide with wide track. All the info is in the brochure but the key bits: Load Bed Length – 3.40m / 11ft 2in Load Bed Width – 1.71m / 5ft 7in Fits in a standard garage so you park on it too Gross Weight – 1600kg Load Capacity – 1150kg Number of Axles – 2 Overall Trailer Length – 4.62m / 15ft 2in Overall Trailer Width – 2.05m / 6ft 9in Centre deck Locking hitch Locable storage Heavy duty jockey wheel Winch Extra long glide out ramps Wheel Stop chocs Four straps Replacement anti-slip I'm looking for £1600.00. I'm in no hurry as I want to use the money for a trailer upgrade and I prefer another Member to buy it so it's not going on any auction sites at present and if I don't get the funds I'll keep it.
