A portable storage building can provide the additional space that you need to keep your vehicle, lawn and garden tools, outdoor furniture, and other belongings safe from rain, snow, and intense sunlight. Storage shelters are made with steel frames and polyethylene covers that can stand up to a wide range of weather conditions, but a portable building can still be blown away by a strong gust of wind.
That’s why it’s important to anchor your storage building. Shelters of America sells anchor kits that are designed to keep our portable garages securely attached to the ground.
Decide Where to Put Your Garage So You Can Order the Right Type of Anchor
Before you select an anchor kit for your storage shelter, you have to figure out where to set up the building. Portable garages can be used on a wide range of surfaces, including grass, sand, and gravel, but some anchor kits are only designed to be used on specific types of surfaces. Once you have decided where to put your storage building, you can select an anchor kit that’s appropriate for that type of surface.
Choose an Anchor Kit That Suits Your Needs
Our auger anchor kits include four 30-inch ground anchors and a U-bolt that attaches to a storage building’s frame. A 3-inch diameter disc at the base can be screwed into the ground to keep the structure secure. Auger anchors can be used on grass, dirt, loose soil, sand, and gravel.
Shelters of America also offers easy hook anchor assembly kits that can be used on dirt, grass, gravel, and asphalt. If you want to set up a portable garage in an area that has rocky ground or tree roots, this will be a better choice than an auger anchor kit. In those types of conditions, hook anchors are easier to drive into the ground. Each of our easy hook anchor assembly kits includes four anchors, plus a driving rod, cable, and clamp.
Keep Your Storage Building Anchored Securely
A portable garage can be a significant financial investment, so you want to be sure that it will be protected from damage. That’s why it’s essential to anchor it firmly to the ground.
When you order a portable garage from Shelters of America, think about where you will set it up in your yard and the type of surface it will be sitting on. That information will allow you to purchase an appropriate anchor kit along with your storage building. When you set up the shelter, you will be able to attach it to the ground and have confidence that it will be protected from strong winds. Order a storage building and anchor kit today.
