The Melbourne Garages team appreciate that most people are working towards a budget for their project and by being transparent with the kit price shown on the screen (as we work through the design) allows our clients to determine what design options are best suited for their job and budget. Some options that clients may like to consider can range from a mezzanine floor area, right through to cladding preferences, insulation, roller door motors and back -up power supplies.
