Fabric Buildings for Auto Dealerships Provide Many Benefits

Space, durability, and versatility are key features of an ideal building for any auto dealership. Whether the vehicle inventory is new, used, or a combination of both, dealership staff need to be able to easily move vehicles within, as well as between indoor and outdoor displays. With traditional buildings, there are a lot of restrictions, limitations, and fewer options for versatility. Especially, once constructed, the costs and time required to modify a traditional building to expand or accommodate items like additional floor space, garage doors instead of double doors, can be prohibitive and result in a loss of business during construction. When it comes to auto dealerships, minimizing disruptions is key to sales.

It is much faster and easier to convert a WeatherPort vehicle storage facility into a 25,000-square foot state-of-the-art luxury showroom, complete with offices, break rooms, restrooms, conference rooms, reception, and a service area than it is to do the same with a conventional or metal building.
