If you’ve been shopping around for a portable garage or thinking about solutions to clean up your backyard and finally store away all those tools and equipment blocking your vision for a backyard oasis, we’re here to tell you that portable garages offer a terrific option. Not only because they create a shelter to protect your investment in these tools, but also because they can be temporary dwellings and move to a different location when needed or be taken down for different seasons.
Choosing the right portable garage for your needs will optimize the benefits you receive from your purchase. Here are the top 3 features to look for in a portable garage.
1. Remember Size Matters
Before you purchase a portable garage, you’ll need to ensure you can fit everything in it, and leave some room for growth (let’s be honest you’ll probably buy another tool or two.) Packing the portable garage so full you can’t get around inside of it is the incorrect way to go about enjoying the additional storage space. Account for your current clutter and then leave room for more when selecting a size and save yourself money and hassles down the road.
2. Check Materials Constructed From
While there are a ton of portable garage options on the market – and even some available at local hardware stores, they are not all created equally. When it comes to protecting your investment in expensive tools, equipment or other items you plan to store there, think seriously about the material the portable garage is constructed from. Think polyethylene covers are a must. They keep damaging sun rays out and are durable so they won’t rip or tear easily.
3. Add the Perks Now
When going out to purchase a portable garage, you likely have an idea in your mind of what purpose you’d like it to serve. Consider the necessary additions in advance. Worried about mold and need proper ventilation or flooring? Will you be storing items that require sunlight (like plants)? Do you need electricity inside or want to go the solar route? Thinking of all of these in advance will give you a chance to purchase the extras from the start of the process.
