Aside from your house, your car is probably your single largest financial investment. You, therefore, want to shield it from inclement weather, dings, scratches, animals, and other hazards. That can be a challenge if you don’t have enough space in your garage, or if your house doesn’t have a garage at all.

Fortunately, there’s a simple solution. You can park your vehicle in a portable shelter.

How Can a Portable Storage Building Protect Your Car?

A portable garage is a storage shelter with a sturdy steel frame and a durable cover made with polyethylene or PVC. A storage building can shield your car from rain and snow and prevent moisture from damaging the vehicle’s paint and other components.

In the summer, a portable shelter can protect your car from the sun’s harsh UV rays and prevent paint damage. It can also keep the vehicle from heating up so much that you don’t want to get in and drive it.

During a storm, it’s common for wind to blow branches and other debris around. If an airborne object hits a car, it can cause dents, scratches, and other types of damage. You can file an insurance claim, but you might have to pay a deductible. You can avoid that type of scenario by keeping your car in a portable shelter.

Animals and insects are hazards that vehicle owners sometimes don’t think about, but they can cause major damage. For example, a rodent can chew on electrical wiring, which can leave a vehicle unable to start and can require expensive repairs. Since a portable shelter has a cover made with tough materials, it can keep pests away from your vehicle.

What Type of Portable Garage Should You Choose?

Before you order a storage building, think about what you want to keep inside it so you can choose a building that will suit your needs. Shelters of America sells portable garages in a wide range of sizes to suit virtually any need.

You can buy a shelter that’s the perfect size for a single vehicle, or you can choose one that’s large enough for two cars, or for one vehicle and assorted tools and equipment. We even offer storage buildings that are tall enough to house a boat or an RV.

You also need to figure out where you’ll put your portable garage. Check local zoning regulations and consider your property’s design so you choose a location that’s far enough from the property line and that will be easily accessible.

Once you have decided which type of shelter is right for you, place an order with Shelters of America.
