CarportMany people own vehicles, boats, and motorcycles that require seasonal storage to protect them from damage and prevent their value from decreasing. Instead of paying monthly to keep possessions in a storage facility or having an expensive brick and mortar garage built, a person can purchase a carport. A carport is an inexpensive, versatile, and reliable way to provide seasonal storage for a wide range of possessions.

What can be stored?

Portable GarageThe model and size of carport depend on what will be stored. Carports come in a wide range of lengths, widths, and heights to accommodate for the many items people need to store. There are models that are designed to store and protect anything, from cars, trucks, boats, RVs, motorcycles, and ATVs. Wider models make it possible to store multiple possessions in one carport. The versatility of carports allows for such a wide range of investments to be stored in them and gives them the ability to be easily set up anywhere.

Why should I use a carport?

During the winter season, when most seasonal storage is needed, vehicles, boats, and other expensive possessions are at risk of being damaged by the elements if they are not protected. The extreme cold, heavy winds, snow, and even sunlight can all be detrimental to many of those items. Heavy winds can kick up rocks, salt, and dirt into them and cause physical damage. Snow can build up and be a heavy burden on smaller vehicles and motorcycles, not to mention cause water damage as it melts. Even though the sun is not as strong in the colder months, its ultraviolet rays are still as dangerous. UV rays can damage paint by causing it to fade, crack, and peel. A carport, in turn, will provide protection from all of the damaging effects of the elements.

How does a carport protect my investments from the elements?

Carports are made of heavy-duty steel frames and polyethylene covers. They are designed to be easily set up and taken down, so they can be relocated whenever needed. The heavy-duty steel frame can be anchored to the ground to provide even more stability. The polyethylene covers are strong and come treated to be UV resistant and waterproof. The polyethylene cover is the first line of defense, shielding its contents from UV rays, water, wind, and anything else trying to cause damage.
