Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been up for 7 yrs I bought this to put my tractor in and have ended up using it for my new Toyota Tundra truck instead. Unit has been up for about 7 yrs and has done well. Several small holes in it from where birds have gotten in and trying to get out. Done well in upper Tennessee area with cold winters and hot summers. Just moved unit from original site to another and it was not very hard. I am 68 yrs old and only had to have help pulling cover over center area. if need another shelter will buy again.

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.
