Question DetailsAsked on 7/31/2016

I am looking for an installer of New Age Pro stainless steel (18g), pre-welded garage cabinets

residential home located in Monroe Township.
Items to install include 2 lockers (36" wide x 80" tall), 2 wall cabinets, and a maple work bench.
The lockers are very heavy.

Need work down ASAP.

Looking at the company website, does not look like anything special. Depending on where you buy it from of course you would have to find out if the lockers will be delivered and moved into place by the seller (sold at Costco, Home Depot, Sam's Club, Lowes, etc) or if you have to pick up there - could affect your choice of where you buy it too. From what I can see the cabinets have no assembly - or maybe just screw the feet on. The workbenches take full assembly from pieces according to the assembly instructions.

Depending on whether you have to move the stuff from the store or not might affect whether you use a Handyman or a Moving company for that - I would suspect that, competitively, you can probably get as good a price at a store that delivers to your house (though of course someone would have to be there to receive it) or maybe delivery for an extra $50 or so. Don't know if Costco or Sam's Club delivers - Home Depot and Lowes certainly do.

Otherwise, a Handyman with access to a second person (unless you will be there and can physically help for maybe 1/2-1 hour assembly time) for the workbench assembly.

Pay attention to what you buy on the workbench - there is a workbench itself, and also just the maple countertop worktop which fits over half-height cabinets - be sure to order which you are looking for (presumably the former since you said nothing about half-height cabients).

One thing to consider - is what surface your garage floor has - cabinets have skid feet default unless you buy the optional rollers, so whether or not you have a high-quality floor you need to consider getting them into place without damaging it or the feet - which means moving them into place without skidding the feet so requires movers dolly(s). if high-quality floor finish also probably means assembly of the workbench on heavy cardboard or outside the garage and then move it in. If flooring finish damage is a consideration, then maybe a Moving company which will also assemble the workbench - some will do this at same hourly cost, some don't want to mess with the liability of assembly of items. Most handymen would not have the dollies needed to move heavy equipment of this type, and does not look like manually carrying it across a floor would be much fun for 2 people, but maybe doable at 212# for the cabinet, and the feet do not look like they could take skidding it around, though there is a caster set available for them. But, at 212#, a normal heavy-duty handtruck with a bit of padding should be able to handle it easily (usually 400-500# capacity) so if you have it delivered they should be able to roll it into place for you - or you and a friend could suing a rented handtruck - just be sure where the handtruck "foot" is hitting so you don't dent a weak underplating. Then use the packing cardboard (presuming they come in protective cardboard boxes) to assemble the workbench yourself (or handyman) right in front of where it is going and tilt it up into place to avoid moving it across the floor.
