We at Covered Cars want every customer to be 100% satisfied with their purchase. That's why we find it important to consider a few things before making your final decision.
Where do you plan to put the carport? Do you have a flat spot, with a clear space to put the carport? How much maintenance will this space require to manage weeds, small animals, or falling debris from trees or other roofs?
What about your long term plans? Purchasing a carport can be a big investment, and it's something you want to have for many years to come. Even if the carport you are looking at is big enough for your current vehicle, it's best to consider what you might want in the next year or two. Will you be upgrading your vehicle to something bigger? Maybe you're planning on buying a motorcycle next summer and need extra space in the carport?
What type of weather do you experience? Are there any adverse conditions such as snow or intense wind that you need to protect your vehicle from? Make sure you purchase a carport with the proper strength. Portable carports can be great if you need to use it in multiple locations, but the plastic legs may not be strong enough to handle heavy snow loads. Conversely, a carport with a stainless steel frame can endure lots of weight, but might be excessive if you only need a shelter to protect your vehicle during the hottest summer months.
