An AccelaFrame garage is shorter than the other portable storage units on this list, so it’s important to use it for belongings that meet this height maximum.

With its high-grade steel frame that has joints that are twice as strong as those found in standard shelters, you can trust that this product will last.

How to Choose a Portable Storage Unit

Learning how to choose a fabric building doesn't have to be a trial and error experience. Before you order a bulk storage shelter, make a list of your needs. If you plan to store vehicles or seasonal supplies, measure their dimensions so that you get a good idea of the total square footage you need to protect. You may be a homeowner and need a simple 12 x 10 Garage-in-a-box for your lawn equipment, or you may need a large 100- foot long shelter for seasonal farm equipment. Overall, your final choice depends on your total storage requirements.

Next, you should consider your area’s typical weather. Do you need something with plenty of sun protection, or do you need a shelter with excellent snow load capabilities? This can make the difference between you getting a winter-friendly ShelterTube structure or a lighter Garage-in-a-box shelter. No matter what you need it for, it’s important to know your reasons for buying a portable garage so that you can make the best decision for yourself.

You may also discover that you need a different type of structure like a carport or large steel garage for a variety of municipal uses. By selecting the right type of shelter the first time, you can save yourself any hassle with returns or bad fits.
