[field_lastmodifieddate] Sheds Unlimited Sheds Unlimited

We all know that a vehicle is a big investment and one that we want to be sure to protect in any way possible. But there are many ways to protect your vehicle which offers different levels of protection. Some choose a very simple car cover and others a full-fledged prefab garage building to keep their vehicle safe. So, what degree of protection are you looking for with your vehicle and does it matter to you how it looks?

Car Cover Option

This is one of the most inexpensive option that will provide a degree of protection for your vehicle. A car cover will help protect your vehicle from most of the elements but there are other options that provide a lot more. With a simple car cover you will need plan extra time to take it off and put it back on each time you use it.

This is one way to help provide shade for your vehicle and protect it from rain and snow. This works if you have a driveway and can place one over it. It may be convenient for a time, but you probably want to consider the durability of it and how it may affect the curbside appeal.

Carport option

This basically gives a ‘roof’ over your vehicle, which is helpful to keep the rain, snow, and other elements off of it. It also provides shade, and overall helps keep your car looking better. There are also options for a fully enclosed carport to keep your vehicle safe.

Garage Building Option

This option presents the best overall protection for your vehicle. With it being an enclosed garage, it protects from elements and other things that could potentially cause harm. It also provides the option of a more controlled climate for your vehicle. Garage buildings can be either attached garages or detached garages depending on your needs. 

8 Ways A Garage Buildings Can Improve Your Life

1. Garage Buildings Can Protect Your Vehicle Investment.

Vehicles are a large investment second only to a house investment. If you are spending thousands of dollars on a vehicle, then it would only make sense to have a quality garage building to protect it. 12x24 portable garages are an affordable option to protect your vehicle. 

 

2. Garage Buildings Protect Your Vehicle From The Elements.

Parking your vehicle in a garage building will keep it looking better. A garage will protect it from dust, bird droppings, nightly dewfall, and a range of other ‘things’ that are typical of an outdoor environment. The accumulation of these things on your vehicle will accelerate the deterioration process on the protective finish of your vehicle. If you keep your car in the garage, you also have little to fear from unexpected or crazy weather.

3. Garage Buildings Protect Your Vehicle From Theft.

If you keep your car in a garage building, you’ll greatly reduce the chance of it being stolen. But you’ll also help to protect it from acts of vandalism, and from people breaking into it to steal what’s inside. If a vandal has to break in through a door to get to your vehicle, they are much less likely to do it.

4. Garage Parking Is More Convenient.

Vehicles parked inside a garage building won’t need mounds of snow cleaned off them and ice scraped off their windows in the winter. They’ll also warm up quicker, or not be as warm in hot weather. Your vehicle will be close to your home and save you small amounts of time daily. All of that will add up to many hours that will be collectively saved over the long term.

5. Garage Parking Improves Curb-side Appeal.

Homeowners invest lots of time and money into improving curb appeal by upgrading their home and property’s appearance. Certainly, an empty driveway compared to a driveway with one or more vehicles parked in it projects a cleaner, less cluttered look for a house. There are some really beautiful options for one and two-car garages built by the Amish in PA

6. Your Vehicles Are Only Driven 5% Of The Time.

According to transportation experts, vehicles are typically only being driven 5% of the time. That means vehicles are sitting parked 95% of the time! If your vehicle is sitting parked for the vast majority of the time, it would make the most sense to have it out of sight.

7. Can Lower Insurance Rates.

Yes! Some insurance companies offer lower policies for people who store their vehicle in garage buildings. Saving money is always an advantage. Check into it.

8.  Helps Vehicles Startup And Run Better.

 Because a garage keeps a vehicle warm, the fluid and oil are kept in a stable condition which leads to an engine that runs better than one that is kept outside. With a warmer car comes faster AC and heat. Extreme hot and extreme cold can both lead to deterioration of the inside and outside.

Getting Started with a Garage Building

Getting started with a garage building requires answering a lot of questions. Here are a few to help you in getting started. 

1. Do you need a portable garage or a permanent garage?

Portable garages are an economical and quick way to get your vehicle inside. Even with portable garages, there are many options to choose from. You can start with a standard portable garage that gives you the most basic storage option or go further with a two-story garage to give you plenty of space. 

2. What size of garage building meets your needs?  How much space do you have for a garage building?

You can choose from: a 1 car garage, double wide (2 car garage), 2 car prefab garage, 3 car prefab garage, or 4 car prefab garage.

Keep in mind how many vehicles you have to park in it, as well as if there are other items that you’ve invested in which will need a place to protect them, such as boats, ATVs, gator, golf cart, etc.

3. Now, you get to choose the style.

Will a Workshop, MaxiBarn, or Saltbox style better fit your curbside appeal and/or personality? You can also choose between a portable one car garage or a more permanent garage building.

The experience with Sheds Unlimited was professional and easy from start to finish. I needed a very specific size shed, and my wife wanted something that was very attractive. Sheds Unlimited customized our shed with every detail. It is very well made, and good looking. The delivery was as promised and very professionally done. The "mule" delivery system allowed for great flexibility to maneuver around trees, and the shed was positioned perfectly on the base. A piece of trim was damaged, and they had a repairman out in no time to replace the piece. It was a no-hassle experience from start to finish in addition to offering a great customized shed at a fair price. I would not hesitate to recommend Sheds Unlimited.

We didn't want the "run of the mill" garage.
The Garden Shed dormer windows, shutters etc. was so eye catching!
What we needed was a two car garage with full attic.
First time Sheds Unlimited constructed this concept.
They accomplished it with flying colors! Exact paint match too.

The three men never stopped working, John, Willie, and Mark.
They could teach the new generation what the definition of fortitude is. True hard working impressive men.
The entire organization of Shed Unlimited cannot be compared to in this day and age. Five stars all the way around.
If and when you do hire them, congrats, and great choice, you found them. :)

I could not be happier with our shed and service we received. I originally ordered a shed from Home Depot but ran into one problem after another with the delivery. After cancelling that order I found Sheds Unlimited. The price was lower installed and delivered and the shed was far more superior than what I expected from Home Depot.

The Shed is a good quality. everything went very smooth with everybody at Sheds Unlimited. The staff was always friendly and answered my questions very quickly. The delivery guy was great, did a great job helping in leveling the shed out. I highly recommend buying a shed from you guys.

After much research I am very happy with Sheds Unlimited and the quality shed they built for me.

RICHARD Mazar from West Wyoming,Pa.

Working with High Point Buildings was a pleasure from beginning to end.  The salesperson,  Donna, was knowledgeable and courteous . We had to have our shed built on site and the two men who did the job were efficient and friendly.  We would definitely recommend this company. 

Romuald Bogdan from Rosedale, MD

This was a great experience from the purchase to the delivery.  Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and professional.  And....they delivered exactly when they promised!!!  I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone in the market for a shed.

APRIL from Downingtown, pa

The shed is absolutely beautiful. We ordered a 12 x 10 stock shed which was delivered on time and as advertised did not leave any marks in the lawn. The shed even came complete with a lock on the door. Nothing to do other than enjoy the shed. It is very roomy and well built and holds more than you think it would. We would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone!!!!

Angelo Cirinelli from Fairfield, NJ

Had a shed built on-site. Quality and construction is great and the crew knowledgeable and efficient. Very pleased overall. Four stars for a lack of communication regarding build date. Crew did not show on date indicated. Contacted Sheds Unlimited that night and received a call the next morning telling me the crew was having issues at another job. Not a problem, just needed a heads up that they would not be there as scheduled. They arrived 6:30 p.m. the next day, unloaded the material and completed the shed in the morning. Again, great shed and great crew. Very pleased overall and would use Sheds Unlimited again. Just need to tighten up communications a bit.
