Location is Key – First things first, where are you going to install your portable carport? Although you may have a good idea of where you want it, take some extra time and really consider the best possible location for your new portable garage. While you'll want your portable shelter to be near enough the house to access it easily you don't want it too close. In the event that there is a car fire, the last thing you want are flames from your carport lapping against the side of your house. When considering the location of your carport you'll also want to consider convenience: Where can you put your carport that will allow you to easily park on a daily basis?
Anchoring Systems – Before you sit down to set up your new carport, make sure you have all the necessary pieces. If your carport does not come with its own anchoring system, make sure you purchase them separately. Your carport will be no good if it is not anchored down. Before purchasing anchors or cleats, make sure you know where you're installing your carport. You'll need different anchors if you're placing your new shelter on grass than if you're putting it on asphalt. Purchasing the right anchoring system intended for the ground beneath your carport is crucial during installation. If you use the wrong anchoring system for your portable carport, you won't be able to ensure that the carport will be stay put.
Get Help – Again, while setting up a portable carport is not necessarily difficult, you want to make sure you have extra hands on deck. The reason for this is simple; you want to have help in case something goes wrong. While none of the parts are heavy, some can be bulky, and the last thing you want is to damage your new carport or get hurt in the process. It is always best to work in teams; plus, doing so will help the job get done that much faster.
Good luck installing your portable carport and enjoy the extra storage it will provide while sheltering your vehicle from the elements.
