This garage dude has seen a lot of garage cabinets and let me say, they aren't all created equal. OK, so I am biased in what our company offers - Redline Garage Gear is truly a versatile system at an affordable price, but everyone will say that about their cabinet line. When I meet with clients it is easy to point out why our products are the best in the industry.
Let me mention some key points here. First, let's do the easy cabinet comparison of Redline to the luxury metal brands. Redline appeals to a broader range of customers who can see the value of having a quality storage cabinet product at a third of the price of luxury metal products. Besides, how many metal brands offer 10 standard colors to choose from.
With a finish quality delivered by a premier quality manufacturer, customers can't justify paying three times the cost to have a metal product. Do you want a comprehensive garage cabinet solution for 5-10K or can you justify spending 15K-30K on a metal luxury brand? Besides, Redline Garage Gear uses the same powder coated exterior finish, as metal products, simply optimized for application to a wood substrate. Folks, I am not saying that the metal products are not good quality or have nice features - but I am not writing the check to put them in my garage. Also, it doesn't hurt that Redline Garage Gear is manufactured entirely in the USA using computer controlled systems and by highly skilled operators and artisans.
For a while, I test marketed Redline in some side by side comparisons with product X - the result, NOT ONE customer was interested in purchasing product X! Why, Redline simply stood out far and above...it is the only storage cabinet product, that I know of, that has over three hundred cabinet layouts which makes it extremely versatile for every customer garage challenge our company has faced!
When I look at the quality of wood substrate based cabinets in the marketplace, I see poorly glued edge banding, edge banding that has peeled from the substrate, chipped melamine along edges, doors that are poorly aligned, loose hardware, etc. When your a garage organization company that is relying on it's manufacturer to deliver a quality product, everytime, then not worrying about product quality, that should just be there, means you can focus on installing a quality solution for your customers.
OK, so Redline has had a couple of deliveries where we had a manufacturing defect that was promptly handled with a replacement part at no charge of course. I haven't asked them to be perfect, but they are very close.
I could go on-and-on about Redline, but I'll save some fun discussion points for other key features in future blog articles.
