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.

If you get your shed or garage from anywhere else, your not gonna be happy! Sheds Unlimited is the only company that I would deal with. I had them come to my house and build me (in 3 days!) THEE most beautiful, (made to my specs) 24x32 garage with two 24' dormers upstairs. Even THEY were so impressed with their work, it's featured in their "Legacy" line of Garages. Later, I ordered an adorable Chicken Coop. I couldn't be happier! Their craftsmanship is second to none, they are on time, polite and totally professional. You will not find this from your local builder! Thank you SO much!!

We love our new shed! The company was very easy to work with. Good value for the money. The delivery at night in the rain though our tight side yard to the shed pad in the back  and perfectly aligned was amazing.

Dave from Avalon NJ

Our shed is exactly what we ordered and we are very pleased. We had many questions prior to ordering and all were satisfactorily answered. Shed was a tight squeeze into our yard, but all went smoothly and the shed is centered well on our level gravel pad. Everyone on the phone and at time of delivery were very professional. Thank you to All.
