Portable Garages and Portable Carports


A portable garage or portable carport is ideal if you’re intending to store your vehicle in a few different places, for example at both your home and holiday home, at festivals and events, or across different areas of large commercial or agricultural land. It’s even possible to share your portable carport or portable garage with friends or other members of your family if required.

Buying a non-permanent garage or carport is easy to do, and portable buildings also have the advantage of being easy to assemble and dissemble. If carport assembly is a challenge for you, then don’t worry about portable carports or garages as they can often be set up in seconds.

Portable carports can also be purchased with adjustable legs, which is perfect if you’re planning to place them on slightly uneven ground – you’ll still have a stable structure which you can store your car under. If you shop around, you should be able to get your portable garage or carport at a much cheaper price than a typical carport, particularly if you go for a prefabricated one rather than have one custom made.

Portable garages and portable carports can be bought from reputable local companies and websites, but if you’re on a tight budget and you’re looking for a cheap carport or cheap garage, then check out Craigslist, eBay and even Freecycle, where you’re likely to pick up a bargain if you can be patient.

Are garage kits a good idea?


If you’re looking for a more permanent alternative to a carport, then building your own garage is a good way to get a great result whilst keeping costs low. There are hundreds of garage kit suppliers so you have plenty of choice, and constructing your own prefabricated building isn’t as difficult a challenge as it may first appear.

GarageIf you’ve ever put together flat pack furniture, then you should have no problem. At the end of the day, a garage kit saves you money and adds value to your property whilst adding valuable storage for cars, bikes, boats and valuable garden equipment. A garage can even work as a cheap extension to your home.

Once the kit has been delivered, you can get to work without worrying about builders not showing up, poor workmanship and inflating quotes. Instead, you can work on your own garage in your own time without relying on anyone else. If you get stuck, your original supplier will help you out, and there are plenty of videos and experienced people on the internet who will willingly help you out for free.

Many garage kits also offer you the opportunity for customization and even post-construction changes to make it ideal for what you want. These changes are the sort that builders will charge a lot extra for, and often suggest that more parts are needed to finish the project. If you’re a homeowner, you can get started researching garage kits straight away. If you rent, it’s best to approach your landlord with a list of reasons why a garage kit is a good idea. Some suggestions include:

  • Garage kits are inexpensive
  • The resulting garage is extremely durable and will last for years
  • A garage will increase living and/or storage space and increase the value of the property

Just don’t make the mistake of saying he/she will be able to charge more rent!!
