How to Choose the Right Portable Garage for Your Car

If you own a vehicle that you can’t store in a garage, a portable storage building can be the next best thing. It can protect your car from rain, snow, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, insects, and animals. 

Portable garages come in a range of sizes and designs. Here are some tips to help you choose the right one.

Select the Appropriate Size for Your Vehicle(s)

First of all, think about what you plan to store in the portable garage. If you only need space for one vehicle, your decision will be straightforward. You’ll just have to be sure that the shelter you choose is long enough, wide enough, and tall enough to enclose the car while leaving some space around it. 

If you want to keep two or more vehicles in a portable garage, things can get a bit tricky. You’ll have to think about the size of each individual vehicle and make sure that the shelter will be large enough to accommodate all of them while leaving space in between for people to walk around and open doors. 

Consider Your Other Storage Needs

Even though you’re planning to buy a portable garage to store a vehicle, that doesn’t mean that a car is the only thing you can keep in there. You might want to get a shelter that’s large enough to store your lawnmower and other equipment that you use to care for your property.

Plan Ahead

Don’t just focus on your current needs; think about how your needs might change in the future. For instance, if your child is going to get a driver’s license relatively soon, you might want to buy a larger storage building than you currently need so you’ll have enough space for an additional vehicle. Planning ahead can help you avoid the hassle and expense of buying another shelter later on.

Choose a Location

Think about where you’re going to put your portable garage. You might discover that your preferred location won’t work. There might not be enough space for a large shelter, or you might realize that maneuvering vehicles in and out would be challenging and impractical. You might have to select a different location, and possibly also a different size, for your storage building.
