Carports & Storage


Why You Should Invest in a Carport or Garage

Since we use our cars daily to get around, we often forget it is one of the biggest investments we make. Just like any other investment you make, you should protect and secure your car. Instead, a lot of us park outside leaving our cars in the elements and susceptible to damage. If you don’t have a garage or it full of equipment so you can’t fit your vehicle inside, a fabric carport is a good option for you. The benefit of using a fabric carport is that it is cost-effective, easy to install, easier to enter your car, portable, and protects the car from the elements. Learn how fabric carports accomplish these objectives to help stop your car from depreciating so quickly.

The self-storage industry is booming with almost 11 million households renting self-storage units in the United States in 2013. The cost of renting a unit isn’t always the most economical for households. A 10ft by 10ft unit costs $115 dollars on average a month, and on average people use units for two years. Without paying for any extra features like climate control, after the two years, you will spend around $2800. An alternative to renting storage space is to buy your own storage unit.
