Before you start piecing together your carport, make sure you know exactly where you want it set up. We understand that you probably had a good idea of where you wanted your carport when you ordered it; however, we want you to be fully aware of problem-causing areas. For example, unlevel ground and areas that flood easily may not be ideal locations. Finding a suitable spot for your carport is important if you want the structure to last.

If so, make sure there is ample room to safely maneuver a vehicle into and out of the garage. Is your carport going to be used for storing workshop equipment? Well, have you considered how far away you want to hike in order to use a tool? Maybe you should put the carport in the backyard where you can easily access it from the backdoor of your home. Safety and convenience are of key importance, so make sure the location of your carport also satisfies its purpose.

Last but not least, make sure you consider security. Security is twofold: first, you want to make sure your carport is secured to the ground, and second, you want to make sure your carport is secure from other people. You want to make sure your carport is securely fastened to the ground. If you haven't already done so, make sure you purchase a set of our anchors to properly secure your shelter. Keep in mind that different anchors are ideal for different ground types. You can help keep your carport secure from people by placing your carport away from the road, if at all possible. Place your carport out of sight from the road or place it as close to the house as possible to deter mischief causing persons.
