Consumers are always looking for convenient, economical ways to store their belongings, and Monkey Bar Storage makes it easy. The company’s Grid Shelf Kit, for example, includes a shelf that is 24 inches deep and 48 inches wide, and can hold 1,000 pounds of storage. The shelf’s grid design allows consumers to see what is being stored from underneath, even if heavily packed. It typically hangs six feet off the ground, and comes with a Monkey Bar designed to hang bicycles, golf bags, skis, saddles, garden tools and other items. The Grid Shelf Kit retails for $199.99, and hooks can be purchased separately. Monkey Bar Storage also sells a variety of racks, which retail for $79.99 to $99.99 each, in general. Wholesale price is typically 30 to 35 percent below retail price, and the company offers quantity discounts.
“Our history has been selling online and our products compete very well, especially our bike rack,” says Shaun Anderson, sales manager. “There are not a lot of bike racks out there that sell for less than $100 that will hold six bikes in a four foot space. If you look on Amazon.com, our rack is a top seller in the category of bike racks because most of our competitors’ units only hold one bike. Most families have at least four bikes and they are looking for something to hold all their bicycles. Our product is the solution.”
Monkey Bar Storage products also are known for durability, Anderson continues. “People see that our products are made of heavy duty steel and they are very confident when they purchase them. We have a lifetime warranty because we know our products will last.”
To attract shoppers, flea market vendors who have wall space can display a four foot section of the rack and hang bikes, golf bags, skis or whatever will entice consumers in their markets. Alternatively, Monkey Bar Storage is developing a freestanding display that will have pictures and tell consumers how to use the products. There is no minimum order. To receive a free display, however, the minimum order is 30 units.
Monkey Bar Storage has been featured in ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition. In order to organize an allotted space, Extreme Makeover used several of the company’s products, including shelves, hooks and a workbench.
