Hi, I am Melissa from Northline Express. Are you considering building a garage or just looking for some extra storage around your property? Well if you said yes to that then keep listening because I have got some great information for you today on portable carports and garages.

I am not saying that a portable carport is going to be better than building an actual garage but what I am saying is that building a garage is not always practical or affordable. Yes, an actual garage may be more sturdy and secure but portable carports also have many more benefits that a garage just cannot offer. Whether you need a place to protect a vehicle or just some extra storage space, you really can benefit from a portable garage.

The most obvious benefit of a portable carport or garage is that they are portable. You cannot move or re-position a stick built garage if you change your mind but you can with a portable carport. You also cannot take a garage with you if you ever move. Because the portable carports are not permanent structures you can move it, lend it to a friend, or only have it up when you need it unlike a permanent structure.

The second most important benefit is the simplicity of the designs. If you are thinking about building a garage start thinking about rounding up a crew or a bunch of friends to help out with the labor. Not with the portable carports. They are easy to set up and take down, some can even be set up with only one person. Other than an anchoring system they do not require any drilling or digging during set up.

Let’s talk cost now and obviously the portable carport is going to be way more cost effective than building a permanent garage. You can purchase portable carports or garages costing anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars depending on the size and options you choose but I guarantee no matter which portable version you get it would still cost you 10 times more to build a stick built garage. Do not worry about your portable carport not being as weather resistant. They usually come with heavy duty polyethylene tarps to repel water and UV rays which can damage the items that you are storing.

Storage can range from holiday decorations & lawn equipment to large RVs and there is a size and style that will suit pretty much every use you could think of. We all want to know that our items are protected while in storage but don’t overlook using a portable carport or garage just because they are not a stick built structure. They are the easy to assemble, portable, cost effective solution!!
