"Top quality, offers ample storage area"
This rack ships in 2 separate boxes.
Installation took about 2 hours since I was all by myself with no help. You certainly do not need any special skill set to put it together. Included Installation Guide explains every step with great details. The pictures in the guide made the whole process fairly simple for me.
Tools I used were a step ladder, drill with 3/16" bit, level, stud finder, impact wrench, rubber mallet and small size wrench. If you have a good Stud Finder, you will be in good hands. I used i520 Zircon (Home Depot carries it). I strongly recommend not rushing in finding the studs/joists and marking the measurement which isn't as simple as it sounds but you do that right and the rest will go like a breeze.
I initially installed it in the center area of my garage thinking I will have access to items from all four directions. Once done, the garage appearance looked a bit congested. So I took it down and installed against the wall which of course looks much better but the access to items placed all the way in the back isn't easier now. I can live with that since the appearance is important for me.
I love the fact that the height is adjustable from 24" to 48". I have set it up to 37" so I could park my SUV under that and still get ample storage area. Weight capacity is 600 lbs. Its construction is top quality and will certainly last me decades.
Over all I am very happy with what it offers
