If you service or detail cars, whether as a fun pastime or as an extra source of income, you need a place to complete your projects without inclement weather or lack of space getting in your way. Instead of constantly swapping cars in your personal garage or working under the hot sun in your driveway, find out how to easily create your own DIY auto repair shop with ShelterLogic.
Consider Structure Materials.First, choose the ideal structure for your DIY auto repair shop based on your budget, property capabilities, and commitment level. We recommend one of these two options:
Fabric GaragesFabric garages are incredibly easy-to-utilize and low-maintenance structures. Offering both short-term and long-term vehicle storage space, a fabric garage provides added space to work on cars and keep your latest project protected from the elements. And as mentioned in our benefits to temporary storage blog, they rarely, if ever, require added permits or property renovation. Use your fabric garage virtually anywhere and relocate when necessary for an accessible and portable DIY auto repair shop. Get affordable, reliable, and painless repair space with our selection of quality fabric garages.
Steel GaragesConsidering a more permanent at-home repair shop? An all-steel garage offers an extremely durable, spacious, and versatile workshop or hobby space. Options such as the Vinyl Murryhill Storage Building feature a roll-up garage-style door, vinyl-coated exterior, and a substantial amount of space inside. Not to mention, compared to a fabric garage, this unit features lockable doors for added security and protection.
PRO TIP:As mentioned earlier fabric garages typically don’t require building permits or property renovation. Note that a permanent steel structure could require permits or added fees, so check your local zoning laws and building ordinances before choosing your ideal structure.
