About Portable Garages
For weatherproof external storage space for cars, boats and other vehicles, portable garages are often excellent value for money. Essentially like a gazebo, these roofed structures come in a range of shapes and sizes and will protect from most weather conditions, as well as mildew, damp and dry rot.
Since they are typically constructed from a strong, powder coated or galvanised steel frame, portable garages are superior to gazebos at protecting against high winds and rainfall. The highly durable, rip stop polyethylene cover offers strong protection against UV rays, which might cause cosmetic damage to your vehicle.
Portable garages range from economy shelters which usually consist of a basic canopy for protecting vehicles against light weather conditions, to superior galvanised steel structures with ground anchoring, a flat surface base and high gauge steel roofing capable of withstanding strong winds. Despite their advanced features and durability, these stronger models are still easy to erect.
Portable garages are versatile and can be used for other purposes besides the storage of vehicles. Some smallholders, for instance, have found them useful for storing perishable resources and food as well as housing small animals.
For enhancing the functionality of any portable garage, a wide range of accessories are available. These include ventilation kits for maintaining a steady airflow and low humidity which is crucial for storing animals or working inside the shelter, along with anchor kits for securing the garage to the ground in extreme winds. There are also roll-down doors available, since most portable garages tend to come open at the front, as well as add-on "joiner kits" to increase the shelter's capacity.
