Do I have to clear everything out of the garage?
No, kindly clear the work area for the installers to bring in 2 ladders and the material. We standardly install along the perimeter, so moving things to the center of the garage is acceptable.
What Should I Expect On Installation Day?
On the day of the installation, we kindly ask that you clear the workspace for our installation team. It is not necessary to remove every item from your garage. However, our technicians will need clear floor space underneath where racks will hang, so our installation will be fast and clean.
