Plastic Shelving for Storage Room

I'm moving into an apartment in Luzern in November and I would like to install plastic shelving in my downstairs storage room.

They should be similar to these shelves: http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/PLA...BU9?Pid=search

Would anyone know where to buy similar shelves in Switzerland? Thanks in advance!

WELCOME to the forum, in which type of stores would you buy such shelving in your home country?

Re: Plastic Shelving for Storage Room

Thanks for the links. Most of the products were either wood or metal shelving. I am focused on plastic shelving because of its price, strength-to-weight, and ease of assembly.

I am from the US (so finding these shelves would be easy) but live in Holland where I have not found anything comparable to what I want.

They may just not be available in Switzerland. If anyone has any other suggestions I'd welcome it. Thanks!

Okay, here's my insanely ignorant question: is everyone using 'baumarkt' as a general term or the actual name of a store or in the general sense of the word? When i google it gives me specific stores like Obi, Hornbach, Jumbo, etc, but no store with the brand 'Baumarkt" (except in Germany).

Regardless, I'm very happy that there appears to be plastic shelving available in Switzerland. That's todays little victory!

I would be careful with the plastic depending on the ventilation. Some storage rooms have poor air quality. Most important is to leave air underneath items in case the floor is damp.

baumarkt-hobby.ch might get you there. Also a guy here has metal shelving for sale 15, sf like new, might check him out, cheaper than new ones.

Baumarkt can mean a general term or a brand name. Obi, Jumbo, Co-op bau+hobby are common ones.

If you are only finding the Baumarkt brand name in Germany, then maybe the posters above are shopping in Germany...not uncommon if the drive is not excessive. (German shopping comment made as I see you are a newbie...apologies if I am teaching granny about egg sucking )

Thanks to everyone who replied with advice. Much appreciated!
