Customized Closet Systems Through Costco

January 29th, 2010 · 10 Comments

This is another another post looking for reviews from readers that have used one of the Costco service vendors.  However, this time we’re looking for reviews on the custom closet systems that you can buy through Costco using either California Closets or

I haven’t had a need to take advantage of the closet organization services offered through Costco, so I’m hoping some of you have, and are willing to share your experiences.  Liyun (the reader asking for reviews) asked specifically about the closets.  However, when I visited, I noticed that they offer closets from, as well as California Closets.

If you go with the people you get a 20% discount and a free drawer upgrade, as well as professional design services.  California Closets offer much of the same stuff, it seems, and their discount is a savings of up to $1,000.00 on any of their closet systems.  The biggest difference that I see though, is that the California Closets folks have an in-home design consultation, and also install your closet system.  Whereas, with you do the assembly and installation yourself.  And I’m betting there’s a big bit of difference in price to have someone else install it, which may or may not be worth it.

So, if you’ve had experience using either of these companies to get a closet or some other type of storage solution, please share your thoughts on the experience.

    Costco, but crazy expensive. i couldn’t believe the price quote we received from California Closets thru Costco. I don’t know if they think we are stupid or what. But I think Costco needs to review their subcontractors for value.

    California Closets are the standard, as far as I am concerned. Technik belongs to CL (Cabinet Liquidators) and All-Wood (not really!) companies in West Palm. I have a cousin
    that worked for them in Bartow , Fla. They had many, many problems. Also, misrepresent their products. It is essentially all import materials–bits and pieces—that are assembled
    in the US, but are basically Asian import items. Also company run by a non-American, a Brit named Richard Healey, has a lukewarm reputation with product manufacturing and personal business
    practices. I’m looking for new, affordable, REAL AMERICAN product…COSTCO can do better, I think!

    A few years ago I had a closet done by California Closets thru Costco. The closet itself was nicely done, but there was a catch: the existing closet doors don’t match the shelves! So, there are parts of my closet that I can only see and easyly reach about 1/4 length of the shelves. Terrible design that did not take in consideration the existing closet doors. It’s very frustrating! I contacted California Closets but they never returned my calls. I once received an email message saying they would see what could be done. But that was it. I never had it fixed.

    Looks like the new closet service associated with Costco is called Technik. Looks to me not as high quality as California Closets from their photos and website. But I have never called or bought from them yet so I cannot be sure.

    We had our new master closet fitted by California Closets – excellent, fit perfectly, installed quickly and without a mess to clean up.
    I would recommend them highly
    Only problem, we had them installed over 8 weeks ago with the understanding that we would receive a $300 rebate check in the mail for
    going through Costco – it has not arrived as of today – not happy about that at all.

    They don’t appear to have an EasyClosets link anymore, and their agreement w/ California Closets expires Oct 15th. I wonder what’s next.

    Another option: if you are lucky enough to have a Closet Tailors business operating in your area, their pricing seems to be closer to Easy Closets, while their service and quality is a step above California Closets. They develop custom computerized designs and they do the installation too. We had them do our master closet initially. Then, we had them back for the kid’s closets and our home office. Highly recommend!

    Thanks a lot for the post and thank Mike for the review.

    I’ve used in the past. Would definitely recommend them. Really easy to install and the product quality is excellent. If you have any issues while designing or installing, their customer service team helps as well. If you’re looking to save money and do-it-yourself, this is the way to go.
