What's New

  • Fedex Price Increases (2017) - I try to ship most packages these days using USPS to avoid residential and dimensional surcharges. Larger/heavier shipments, especially to the West coast, have to ship via Fedex. In 2017, Fedex will be raising their ground rates by 4.9% and more importantly, their dimensional rate factor is increasing 20%. A Nilfisk shop vacuum, weighing 49 lbs in a 32x16x28 box, will now ship at the same cost as a 103 lb package. If you have any large item purchases (tool boxes, shop vacs, etc), please try to make them before the rate increase.

  • Facom Price Sheet - December 1, 2016 - shows Suggested Retail pricing, Sale price, country of origin and quantity in stock . Ultimate Garage stocks more Facom products (3,900+ items) than anyone else online today.

  • Facom Year End Sale - 100 popular and mostly current items to introduce new customers to the Facom brand. Some great gift ideas for the holiday season. Quantities limited to supply in stock.

  • Facom Close-Out Sale - these are discontinued Facom items at rock bottom pricing. Purchases from this list will be invoiced manually. Sale ends 12/31/16.

  • Warehouse Parts/Tools/Storage Auction - too much to list separately. If you see any items of interest in the large photos, drop me an email. Willing to accept reasonable offers before listing on Ebay. BMW classic parts (1967-1999), woodworking and automotive tools, shelving, Movit Big Brake kits, wheel spacers, audio equipment, electrical supplies and fixtures, lighting, hardware and fasteners, collectibles, etc.

  • Home for Sale - The Point at Lake Norman - I had planned to relocate to Mooresville (NC) by 2016. Its strong ties to motorsport and lower cost of living made it a great environment for my business and an attractive place to retire. Unfortunately, it looks like I'll be staying here in NJ and we'll be listing our home in the Spring of 2017.

    I've decided to market the home privately at a lower price before signing with a realtor next year. This is a "turnkey" 4 bedroom home on 1.5 acres, located in a gated community within the The Point in Mooresville NC (just north of Charlotte) . It's fully furnished without the cost premium for the staging. I've given it the "Ultimate Garage" treatment with upgrades and attention to detail. Click on the photo above for details of the home. Please contact me at 201-262-0412 or ultgar@verizon.net if you have any questions.

Purchases from these lists will have to be invoiced and processed manually to apply the discounted pricing and proper shipping costs.

  • Phone Orders - if you're uncomfortable ordering online or not quite sure what you need, you can reach me from 9-5pm (EST), Monday-Friday, or 9am-noon (EST) on Saturday.... 201-262-0412

The above product lines were discontinued due to low profit margins, customer service and warranty issues, or the fact that I no longer have the time or interest to properly support these company's products. I still have inventory from many of the above companies, most items at close-out pricing.

I'm redirecting my time, energy and capital to a handful of product lines. I'd rather be excellent with 5-6 lines than mediocre with 30 !
