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. 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.

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

I work with a lot of contractors and companies in both my day job and side job and there is nothing worse than the ones that need to have their hands held through the process. Sheds Unlimited was definitely not one of those kinds of companies. I told them what i wanted once and that is exactly what showed up at my house. When i did have to speak to the reps (Mark L. and Austin) it was very easy as they knew exactly what they were doing. The greatest part of my experience is when i placed my order I asked Mark if there was any way this could be a priority order, and he told me he would make a note for manufacturing that i needed this ASAP, and when Austin the man in charge of shipping called he referred to this note, and my shed was delivered weeks early. The prices were also great for the amount that came with the shed. I found my shed was about 100-200 more then competitors basic models, but the competitors were just basic and primed. My shed came with 2 windows, 2 sets of doors, paint and shutters, so i was very happy to pay this amount.

Thanks Sheds Unlimited!

Justin Johnson from Mantua NJ

Sheds unlimited was a pleasure to deal with. Everybody was so helpful from ordering to delivery. The shed is well built and should last a long time. I will recommend Sheds unlimited to anybody looking for a shed.

Ken from Centreville, Md

Sheds unlimited did a great job facilitating the shed process. The communication was excellent. Mark was great explaining the process and keeping me informed every step of the way. The delivery guy was great and patient. We needed more doors added to our shed when the service crew arrived they were very efficient. Over all 100% satisfaction with Sheds Unlimited.

Great place to get a garden shed. Very pleased with my 12x16 purchase.  Great quality, nice workmanship, done on time and for a very reasonable price.  Delivery was fantastic.  Thanks.

HS from Ringoes, NJ

We didn't want the "run of the mill" garage.
The Garden Shed dormer windows, shutters,clapboard siding 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 how to work and the definition of fortitude.

The entire organization of Sheds Unlimited cannot be compared to in this day and age. Honesty and craftsmanship is Sheds Unlimited.

If and when you do hire them, congrats and great choice, you found them!
Thank you,
John

Ross & Colleen Duncan from Lenoir City, TN

I purchased a shed from this company about ten years ago and the unit still works new! Excellant quality work, the material was top-notch, and the company stored my completed order until my landing area was ready! They delivered my shed to my house when I lived in District Heights, MD on-time! I live in Clinton, MD now and brought my shed with me! I the company that moved my shed was amazed from the shape it was for its age.  Good people and geat quality.  Oh, and their Customer Service was perfect!!!!!!

Steven Lawrence from Clinton, MAryland

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.

mike from East islip ny

We purchased a 8x18 classic workshop shed and are very pleased. Sara was very helpful, answered all of our questions, and provided multiple quotes for different styles/sizes. The delivery process was simple and timely as well. The whole experience was great from start to finish. We definitely recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Kim Vermillion from Point of Rocks, MD

I can honestly say my experience with Sheds Unlimited was a pleasant from our visit to the facility in Pa. to delivery.
