Best Garage Gear

We started Reboot My Garage because we were faced with our own disorganized and dirty garage. We were applying our engineering and analytical skills to fixing our garage. We thought, why not document our work for others? We have spent hundreds of hours researching and often testing the best garage organization and maintenance products out there. We only recommend products we’ve researched ourselves. We sometimes look at two dozen products before choosing “the best.” We recommend these products without hesitation. Enjoy our unbiased reviews.
