[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.

Unbelievable group of individuals that produce an extremely high quality product. My 10x14 ft shed was built to the highest standards. Nothing exists anywhere here in the finger lakes region that was even close. Pictures  depict the product very well. But delivery, confirmation on all levels with the build and follow up were  beyond excellent. This is hands down the best construction firm for garages and sheds that I have seen. Extremely honest. Their delivery equipment and tools are the best. New hydraulic heavy duty tilting trailer and the best of tools. They are extremely fast but never sacrifice quality for speed. Very enjoyable to do business with...would recommend to anyone. You get what you pay for.  They are the best... !!! Will use them again... and they are nearly 300 miles away.

The shed came out better than expected. Couldn't be happier.

Brian from Commack ny

I ordered a custom built 8x14 high barn style storage shed. I did a significant amount of research into quality and costs for comparable sheds. Sheds unlimited was nearly the cheapest and was by far and away the best shed I've seen. It has been installed for nearly a month now and I am still as blown away as i was when it was installed. All of the higher end details were covered, extra bracing on roof joists, solid complete construction.

There are a number of reviews discussing installation, I could not have imagined how easy and professional it would be. My driveway is narrow and uphill. The driver used the mule to bring the shed exactly where I wanted it without a scratch. I have personally recommended Sheds Unlimited to a few of my neighbors and I can't recommend them enough. If you are looking for a very high quality shed that was SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than any of the local places--from chains like Lowe's, Home Depot and Agway--to smaller advertised shops--go no further. I am in northern NJ and while I had to pay for delivery it was still cheaper than the "Free Delivery" places... Don't waste your time elsewhere.

John Coyle from Morristown, NJ

Received my shed on August 16, 2013. I dealt with Mark and John to custom build and Nelson for delivery. The shed came on time, exactly as ordered, and was expertly placed on my stone prepared site by Shane, using the Mule. As a retired housing construction specialist, I was so impressed with the finished product that I called John to express my complete satisfaction.
You can not beat the price,quality or service,anywhere. You won't be disappointed.

Tom from Hicksville, NY

What a great company! Designing the shed online was easy and fun. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Delivery and construction were seamless. The shed itself is good quality and well made, and perfect for our needs. Highly recommend them.

 

Eliza Minden from NW Connecticut

From beginning to end, the service was outstanding. I loved the fact that I could buy a prefabricated shed that was such good quality and good looking for such a reasonable price. It is exactly what I wanted and needed without having to hire anyone to build it. Everything was seamless!

Claire Felix from Southampton, NY

Sheds Unlimited built me a custom 35' X 35' 3 car garage with log siding.   It has a second floor with 2 dormers.  They did an outstanding job, start to finish.  Exactly what I wanted!   I'm extremely satisfied.  

Matt McLaughlin from Morgantown WV

Wonderful experience in ordering, and installing the shed in my yard. Really talented people who brought it and put it up. They were courteous, fast and willing to do the job right.

Salem Mekuria from Massachusetts

We received our shed few months ago, and we LOVE it. Due to our neighborhood restrictions, it was a long process to make sure everything was just right. The team at Sheds Unlimited were extremely helpful and stood behind us every step of the way. They were AWESOME. When the shed was delivered, there ended up being an error, but they took care of it immediately. We LOVE our new shed, and I HIGHLY recommend these guys to EVERYONE! Well done! Thank you so much for all of your patience and assistance!

Great company to work with. Design and planning was simple and straight-forward. Delivery was prompt and set up was easy. I couldn't be more pleased with my new shed.
