"It's been our experience that most homeowners, male and female, are some combination of these qualities," says GarageTek's President Marc Shuman about the survey. Homeowners who take the free, one-minute garage personality test will receive suggestions about the best type of garage system to match their personality type.
They also get a list of essential organization components that their particular personality type tends to need. Then they can choose to contact a GarageTek expert, who can visit the homeowner to create a complimentary, 3-D rendering of a custom garage organization and storage system. The system can be installed in one to two days, according to Shuman. "Even a cluttered garage tells you a lot about the family that lives in that home. We took a process that is traditionally laborious and made it fun," says Shuman.
