What Can You Store in a Portable Garage?

portable storageWhen consumers hear the phrase "portable garage," a shelter for keeping a car or bike dry immediately comes to mind.

Yet, these structures are just as versatile as your brick-and-mortar buildings. As a result, the storage possibilities border on infinite, so we list some of the many popular uses:

1. Vehicles

Nearly any vehicle, within a 12-foot height, can fit inside a portable garage. The metal and polyethylene structure, as a result, gives year-round protection from the elements – factors that damage its paint job and crack or rust internal components.

Day-to-day vehicles, such as cars and trucks, benefit from this storage method. Think about not having to shovel snow away, scrape off ice, or deal with UV rays.

Seasonal vehicles – some potentially too large to store in a brick-and-mortar garage – benefit from the same protective properties. Depending upon your passion, this could be:

  • Boats
  • RVs
  • Motorcycles
  • Snow mobiles
  • RVs and campers

Just make sure, as you keep the vehicle covered for months at a time, to winterize it beforehand.

2. Animals

Once you’ve provided food, water, and bedding, some animals get the freedom to move around during the day and have shade from the sun:

  • Horses
  • Livestock
  • Dogs

3. Supplies

Sometimes, a home just doesn’t have enough space for storage. Yet, plenty of homeowners have supplies they want to store or a project they want to begin.

As a result, setting up a portable garage gives your property a strong work shed. Depending upon the size and use, you may want to consider it for:

  • Storing painting supplies
  • Sheltering materials
  • Keeping your tools in one place
  • Covering yard and landscaping equipment
  • Holding salt and sand

4. Construction & Farm Equipment

Beyond maintaining your yard and grounds, larger equipment needs storage, too. Often used seasonally, pieces like tractors and plows may rust when left outdoors for the winter. Big picture, you get less use out of your equipment, which means you’ll have to spend more on repairs or replace the model sooner.


Do you keep a trailer around for storage or transport? These structures, too, see wear and tear from the elements. When you’ve got a classic car or animals you want to take to a show, or materials you need to move, don’t just think of your truck. Your full operation needs to be up and ready to go, so make sure your trailer’s equally protected and sheltered from moisture, snow, and UV rays.
