Homeowner's Guide to a 12x20 Portable Garage

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.

12X20 Portable Garage

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.

Need a 12x20 Portable Garage

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. It is about time your hammers, nails, and screwdrivers had a spot to call home. 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.

The process to customize any one of the standard designs is ingenious. Surgey was helpfull in choosing the options and placing the doors. The delivery process went better than we expected based on the tight access to the pad.

We were extremely impressed with the precision in which Ryan  manipulated the muel.

Joe from High Bridge NJ

Working with Sheds unlimited has been by far one of the best professional experiences I have ever had. At first we chose them for a garage to accommodate one a custom race boat we added to our fleet of yachts for charter and selected Sheds unlimited for there great price. Working with them prior to delivery was seamless and when our garage was delivered on April 12th the driver/installer arrived exactly when we where told he would. We actually videos the install as the driver transported our 26x12 foot garage through some tight spaces and did it with ease and total professionalism. I have already recommended Sheds Unlimited to a family friend and would to anyone considering a shed or garage for any application. You can use me as a reference anytime for any potential customers that may have concerns. The quality of the garage exceeded my expectations.

Capt. Paul S from Parsippany NJ

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!

My new garage looks like it was built with the house. The construction quality is impecable. Nothing but thumbs up to all that were involved from my sale to delivery and delivery was a sight to see as my garage came down my street and in my driveway by one man who was very professional at his job knowing every step he could take safely. JOB WELL DONE SHEDS UNLIMITED !!!!!

George Otero from Medford New York

We absolutely love our shed! All our neighbors have even commented on how nice it looks. We have been in many different sheds at family and friends places and at sales centers for sheds and hands down this shed is constructed better than others we have seen. Very happy and would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!

I shopped extensively and did my homework looking for a shed. I had to since I hadn't owned a shed before and am I glad I did. I demanded high quality craftsmenship at the best price and you guys exceeded my expectations for both. You delivered it on time, set it wear I needed it to go on my property all for a very reasonable price. Also your delivery guy took extra care as to not negatively impact my grounds during the installation. Well done Sheds Unlimited ! R.L.

Cannot say enough how easy it was to deal with Mark and the crew. My calls were met with a friendly voice and everything that was promised was delivered. The shed is great, Nate the driver was great and it was just refreshing not only to be treated the way I was but to receive the friendliness & professionalism from a super bunch of people.

We live in northern Maryland and based on prior reviews, we decided to go with Sheds Unlimited. These guys know what they're doing - When it was time for delivery these guys maneuvered our 8' X 10' shed and placed it on the pad perfectly. The shed is beautiful and well-made and we are very happy with Sheds Unlimited quality and service.

Russell from Timonium, MD

Had Shed's Unlimited build a custom garage for me. I have built 3 homes over my lifetime, and found my experience with Delmar and James very positive. There were a couple of glitches (no surprise) and they handled the problems that arose with excellent responsiveness. Overall, the company's personnel that worked on site were efficient and pleasant. Once on site this custom garage was erected in just two days. The overall result was of excellent quality and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. I am a very pleased customer!
