12x20 Portable Garage

Let’s face the facts…you either thrive on organization and clean space or you aspire to grow in this area of your life.  This responsible desire now drives you to search for added space. You want to ensure adequate space for all the items that you have invested maintenance, time, and money into. Which is why you have started to think about your vehicle.

Maybe you just bought a brand-new car, or you experienced a recent storm during which damage occurred to your good Ole Faithful. Your classy, antique car or hot rod needs to be kept in tip top shape, steered clear away from any obstacles that could weather or scratch them.  Whatever your situation you realize you need a safe space for this important financial investment.

With every important realization, you wonder, “where do I go from here?” What about affordability, efficiency, and quality? Well, if you are looking for a space for an average sized car (plus a spot to organize some of your favorite tools), a 12x20 portable garage is your answer.

What exactly is a 12x20 portable garage?

A 12x20 portable garage is a one car garage with a heavy-duty floor. The structure includes a garage door, an entrance, and usually two windows. This single garage can be transported from any location while adding a permanent feel to your home. Its size can functionally house a normal sized car and a few tools.

You may not be ready to jump on the bandwagon just yet and park inside one of these garages. Understandably, you want to know more, so let’s answer some questions and equip you with some facts to know why a 12x20 portable garage would be a perfect fit for your car (and even some of your tools).

Why Not a Plastic Portable Garage or Carport?

If you google search portable garages, you will find the quickest and cheapest portable garage solution. While this structure affords a space for your vehicle and is cheaper overall, these fabric, portable garages are limited in what they can offer your home in investment and appearance. They lack the ability to create permanency and can only offer limited protection from burglary or from extreme weather elements.

So, what about a carport?  Carports can give a more aesthetic touch to your outdoor environment but are incapable of offering full protection from the weathering forces of nature. Carports do not have four walls, which allows for great ventilation, but fails to shield your snazzy Porsche from the heavy winds and rain. Carports have even less to offer in keeping unwanted trespassers away from your prized vehicle.

In contrast to fabric portable garages and carports, a 12x20 portable shed garage offers you four walls, security, and a beautiful structure in which to house your car. This one car garage is portable, which means if you ever move, you can take it along with you. It's hard to believe, right? This garage gives the appearance of always being around. It leaves a sense of permanency that makes your home feel like home.

How much can I store in a 12x20 portable garage?

This is a fair question; you want to know what other possibilities for storage this 12x20 one car garage offers.  While this single garage was specifically designed to house your vehicle comfortably, there are still some space options left to get more organized with your favorite tools.

How rewarding to have a consistent place to return your tools after heroically changing the lightbulb for your wife or after finishing setting up the bunkbed for your children. Maybe you enjoy gardening and need a spot for some of your gardening tools where they can be kept from rusting or from being lost among your beautiful flower beds.  Whether you are a handyman or a gardener, there is space for the tools that matter the most to you.

We love our shed. An amazing company to deal with. The shed is made perfectly and they went out of their way to please us. The delivery was exceptional. We are very, very, very, pleased.

I had a great experience from start to finish. The customer service representative were polite, responsive and very helpful. The shed is exactly as promised and seems to be built extremely well. When I compared the pricing to local competitors, Sheds Unlimited easy beat the other's prices by $300-700 and provided better options. The delivery guy was efficient, polite and managed to sqeeze the shed up our tight driveway with ease. I highly recommend them!

Damon Soeiro from ...

We recently had a two car garage installed. The two guys from Sheds unlimited, Gideon and Mark were unbelievable! They worked so hard and had the garage up in one day. They were also super nice and easy to work with. John, who we dealt with during the design process was also great. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. Our garage is beautiful.

Vicente and Gillian Frontinan from Medford, MA

The shed looks wonderful in the garden and yes, has been a better convenience to access mowers and tools.  Locking and unlocking and the ramp usage are terrific.

Victoria from Heidelberg twp

Delivery was a breeze and they did a great job setting it up! Great job all around, pleasure to deal with! Will def recommend to my friends and family!

MaryAnne DeFinis from Stirling, NJ

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

Using sheds unlimited was the best decision I ever made.   My shed is beautiful well made and the whole process was unbelievably easy.   My shed was delivered in three weeks.  They came in one day and put it  together.  I rent to work and came home and it was there.   No mess nothing left behind.   My neighbors were also surprised and couldn't believe in a few hours it was done.   I love it and couldn't be happier!     Do not hesitate to use them the best price for your money.  My husband and son said the builders were the nicest two guys ever!    

Lisa rainone from Queens ny

I am very happy with my new shed, and have received many compliments from neighbors. It was delivered on schedule and there were no difficulties with the installation. The staff of Sheds Unlimited was always professional and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend your company with absolutely no reservations. Thank you all very much.

Michael Bodley from Collegeville, PA

The men showed up early Tuesday and went right to work.They were polite, friendly and answered any questions I asked. Although my building was on the larger side, 28' by 44' ft. they worked well together and finished in two days! Myself and two contractor friends inspected the building and were all quite pleased with the quality of the building. The men cleaned up the perimeter before leaving and other than a new building you would never know they were there. I am very pleased and would definatly recommend Sheds Unlimited.. 

Greg Landfried from Leeper , Pa.

Great workmanship and quality material, delivered on time and process was professional and simple. Colors of shed matched my house perfectly. Very happy and hope to refer you to others. Thanks again.
