Garage-in-a-Box® 12 x 20 x 8 ft. is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job Good value, which is hard to find and design. Sheds snow, this winter there was absolutely no snow accumulation, which was the downfall (literally) of my previous shelter which cost over 4 times the price. It does need to be anchored properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a good product! I bought this garage over 3 years ago when I moved to Maine, and was compelled to write a review today after digging out of a blizzard. This was the third blizzard that this garage has gotten me through. Today the snow was up to the roof when I got there to check on it. I make sure that I knock off any snow that doesn't come off on its own but other than that I don't do anything. I've gotten my monies worth and Am really happy that I got this garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product We have five of the garage in a box in our service yard area, and they have been invaluable. Overflow parts are stored in them, with a requirement for complete protection from the sun, rain, fog, and dust. This level of protection has now been provided for many months, and the indication is that the rugged construction of the units will provide many years of useful service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this unit about 16 months ago and I tell you has served its purpose. easy assembly and pretty durable when anchored properly. The tarp material is great but will deteriorate after while, but normal for any tarp material. I am glad I bought this item and I am satisfied with the customer service delivery and product itself. good job shelter Logic for making a product that serves its purpose for a great price. I would definatly purchase again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shelter We bought ours over 6 years ago and we now need a new cover. The good old HOT California sun has ruined it. The year we bought ours the neighbors good a different brand at the same time and they are now on their 3 cover and we are just needing to replace the original.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shelter logic car port I have had this garage up for over 8 years with no maintenance other then keeping heavy snow off it and it's held up GREAT. granted I do need a new tarp cause it's warn through a little here and there over time but overall it has been well worth the money.

What would be the minimal amount of snow this unit could handle? I know I'll have to clean the snow off, but I want to know it could hold 6-8 inches of snow untill I'd get it cleaned off.

Asked by: DavenKim
Hello. Although this is a strong unit, it is not snow load rated. We would recommend that you look at our ShetlerTech buildings that do have a snow load rating and would give you peace of mind to protect your valuables when there are several inches of snow. Take a look at them at https://www.farmbuildings.com/. If you have any other questions, one of our shelter experts can help find you the perfect solution for your shelter needs. Please call us at 1-800-560-8383. Thank you for your interest!

I live in upstate New York, what about your product in leave snow?

Asked by: prdoc
Hello, We recommend the round style roofs for use in snow. Since this is a temporary shelter, we encourage customers to remove snow build up from the roof. However, we do offer wind and snow rated shelters and would be happy to discuss this option with you as well. Please give us a call at 1800-932-9344. Thank you!
