Canoe Hoist For Your Garage...Up, Up and Away

Sometimes you run across something so great, you just have to share it with everyone.  We recently installed a canoe hoist as part of a custom garage organization project and we have to say, we were impressed!

If you own a canoe or kayak, a canoe hoist is a slick solution to store your canoe or kayak in your garage without taking up valuable floor space.  

The ceiling mount design allows a kayak or canoe to be stored in a garage near the roof, ensuring there is plenty of room to park a vehicle underneath.  It can easily be operated by 1 person and holds up to 125 pounds.  Up, up and away with your canoe - it couldn't be any easier.

Review from Deb in Apple Valley on 4/4/2013
Rick from Closets For Life made the best use of every bit of space we have available in the closet. . . . We couldn't be happier with the results or with Rick himself.  I highly recommend this company for custom closets.
 
Review from Steve in Mpls on 5/1/2013
Closets for Life owner, Rick, came out to my home and discussed my requirements for a walk-in closet.   It was obvious from his 3D drawings that he really listened to my preferences as he designed the space, not to mention he turned around the rendering in less than 2 days. . . . The closet was installed 2 weeks after Rick received the signed agreement, just as he had committed.  I quoted two companies for this work and, in my opinion, Rick's design was FAR superior.   He really listened and came up with something that perfectly fits the space - even though the room is not a perfect rectangle.  The entire process was easy and timely, and Rick delivered on all of his commitments.  Closets for Life definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you Rick!
 
Review from Barbara in Andover on 11/3/2012
Rick was very helpful throughout the process.  He completed an initial design.  He modified the design until I was completely happy with the plan.  The install was perfect.  Rick was very pleasant, clean and willing to make sure I was 100% satisfied.
