Give Your Car a Home With a Portable Garage

If you find yourself scraping frost, snow and ice off your windshield during the winter months because you don’t have a shelter for your car, it might be time to take a look at portable garages.

A portable garage is an ideal large storage solution and the perfect place to protect your vehicle from the elements. But before you have a large structure delivered to your home, there are a few things you should do to prepare.

First of all, think about where your garage will be located. You’ll want to choose a spot with a reasonably flat area, but it does not need to be perfectly level–the garage can be leveled to the existing terrain. Although the building can be placed on a foundation such as gravel or concrete, this is not neccessary for a proper installation.

Next, you’ll need to contact your local city and county agencies to get information with regard to zoning, permits, setbacks, and covenants. If you have a homeowners association you must check with them as well, to see if there are any applicable neighborhood rules and regulations.

Finally, decide what type and style of garage will work best for you. Don’t neglect to get all the measurements beforehand to ensure that your garage can be installed in your desired spot.

Once you’ve done all the necessary planning, your new sturdy, maintenance-free garage can be delivered and set up. With a strong floor designed to support your car as well as power equipment, motorcycles, ATVs and just about anything else you can fit inside of it, a portable garage makes a great spot for extra storage. Just be sure to leave enough room for your car!

If you decide to buy or rent to own a portable garage, there will definitely be some planning involved. But when you climb into your vehicle and drive away without having to scrape anything off the windshield, it will be well worth it.
