[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.

Delivery was on time , price of shed was well below competitors prices, delivery men were able to place our shed where other companies would not even try, I would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!!

Tom Harwood from Frederick

My husband and I shopped many places in our area for a shed-screenhouse combo, but no one built them. We were in Pa in November, and visited the shedsunlimited location in Gap. David was very helpful and gave us lots of information to look at. We got our combo last week and it was everything that we wanted. They have done an excellent job, it is great. Everyone that I spoke to during the process was very nice to deal with and the delivery person was great. We couldn't believe one person could move a 12x24 shed by himself. We would do business again with this company and would refer friends too.

Bruce & Kathryn Orlosky from Middleboro, Ma.

Everyone at Sheds Unlimited is of the highest integrity and professional. The ordering process was trouble free, delivery was superb and service after the sale was fantastic! These guys, Japheth, Gideon, Amos and Leroy all care about the customer in a sincere way. My wife has always wanted a dedicate Potting Shed to do her Heirloom gardening and this company fulfilled her life long dream! Thanks Guys, your the best  

Dane Elterman from Stewartstown, PA

I searched all over Long Island for a quality backyard shed for a good price, but I had to go to Pennsylvania to find what I needed. Nobody compares to Sheds Unlimited. Not only are they professional and courteous, they responded to my many questions within hours and helped me get the price to where I needed it. The delivery and installation of the shed was flawless with a very experienced installer. Sheds Unlimited has no limits!

Kevin Omland from Oyster Bay, NY

Having seen an example on my neighbor's property, I knew the quality of the products produced by Sheds Unlimited would be flawless. Thus the more important point would be the customer service I would receive. From the first phone call where all my questions were answered and I was assisted in every aspect of ordering the correct shed to meet my needs, I knew this was one great company. The shed is perfect, the delivery person was efficient and personable. I could not be happier with the experience and would highly recommend this company to all.

Judy Hedden from Doylestown, Pa.

4/5 stars. Well built product. Delivered flawlessly and in impeccable condition. My only complaint was it took approximately 10 weeks to get and there was poor communication with the shipping department. I would use them again

Tim from Ct

Everything about this shed is amazing! SU was a true pleasure to work with in every regard. 

Mike P from Bergen County, NJ

This was a very pleasant experience from custom project to delivery and installations. We love our new shed!

 

Victor Sharov from Exrton PA

My custom designed 10 X 16 Classic Workshop Shed was installed today by a well trained and extremely courteous driver/installer. I could not believe only one person was able to complete the delivery. I used Bedrock Foundations recommended by them for building a level framed pressure treated 12 X 18 blue stone filled foundation then scheduled delivery. Dealing with Sheds Unlimited as well as Bedrock Foundations from start to finish should be a role model for other American companies to follow. I will definitely recommend both these companies to everyone shopping for a shed, garage, workshop of top quality construction and installation. Thank you Sheds Unlimited as finally I can put all my tools and equipment in one location.

Danny W. Lisk from Old Bridge, New Jersey

All I can say is WOW!!!!  Three car Garage, 36' x 28' with hip roof, 10' ceilings and a few other upgrades.  3 talented craftsmen arrived bright & early & completed my build that same day...  I was shocked....  A single day.....  If I could rate 6 stars I would.  Got my dream garage. I HIGHLY recommend them to all who want amazing quality. Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed!
