When a car, boat, motorcycle, or similar vehicle needs coverage, go with portable buildings. At a fraction of the cost of constructing a brick-and-mortar garage, portable buildings are constructed out of a powder-coated or galvanized steel frame and a polyethylene tarp. As a sturdy and versatile shelter, portable buildings can be placed nearly anywhere on your property and, once anchored into the ground, hold up to high winds and snow. Portable buildings come in valance and enclosed forms for protecting cars, boats, RVs, and other investments.
Several sizes are available for portable storage buildings, but many add these shelters to cover one vehicle. If the structure is used every day to protect a car or other regularly-used vehicle, consider going with a valance style. With a tarp on top and a small overhang on each side, valance-style portable buildings are open, allowing vehicles to go in and out. After rain or snow, your vehicle will be relatively dry – no cleaning off ice buildup – and shoveling a path down your driveway is all you need to do.
Seasonal vehicles, which are in use only for part of the year, need long-term storage, and enclosed portable buildings offer full coverage. Using the same steel and polyethylene components, these metal portable buildings have tarps on all sides to comprehensively block out UV rays and water, which damage the surface of a vehicle over time. Because of the specific dimensions of RVs and boats, portable buildings designed for long-term storage are built to handle taller and longer vehicles.
Although portable buildings offer several options for protecting your investments, consult your local ordinances before purchasing a shelter. Most towns and neighborhoods regulate portable storage buildings and sheds, specifying sizes and locations, and these laws may influence the type of shelter you can purchase. Research any restrictions for your area before you buy a portable building.
