A portable shelter is a versatile storage option. You can find a storage building in the size and height that you need and set it up quickly in your yard on grass or another type of surface. If you live in an urban or suburban area, you’ll have to be careful when selecting a location and comply with all local rules and restrictions.

Find out Where You’re Allowed to Set up a Portable Garage

Zoning rules differ by location. In a rural area, you may have a lot of leeways when it comes to where you’re permitted to put a shed or another type of outdoor structure. If you live in an urban or suburban area where houses are close together, however, you’ll most likely have to comply with tighter restrictions.

Your city or town may require you to set up a portable shelter or another type of structure a minimum distance from the property line. Don’t assume that you know the location of the property line. Many homeowners assume that a tree, a driveway, or some other type of natural or artificial feature marks the property line when that is not actually the case. If you accidentally put up a portable garage too close to the property line, you may have to take it down and pay a fine.

Find out If You Need a Permit

Most localities require a permit for a shed, a deck, or another type of outdoor home improvement, but rules vary from one city or town to another. Usually, a permit is only required for certain types of structures or for structures that exceed a particular size or height. Before you buy and set up a portable garage, check with your local government to find out if you will need to obtain a permit.
