Wasted Money

Date:November 18, 2015
" I've had this for a little over a year and the metal frame is very sturdy when anchored down and it served it's purpose. Until today....
It went through one summer before taking enough sun damage and little tears started to show. We had some heavy winds today (November) and it just tore to pieces and now I'm left with a metal frame. Luckily, I didn't pay full price, but it's still a few hundred gone.
This could be a great option in the perfect conditions. If you have a shaded area with zero winds, it's worth considering. But if your conditions are anything other than that, look elsewhere. "

" The Shelterlogic Garage-in-a-Box is easy to assemble. During winter must remove snow as frame can not support snow on the tarp. "

Easy install, great sale prices,

Date:October 23, 2014
" I bought one of these for my dad for extra storage. Has not gone through the winter yet, but spring/summer/fall has been fine with rain and wind. I ended up putting pallets down on the ground first to avoid ground moisture damage (or rain) for his storage.
Pros
-Light weight
-durable poly
-easy straight forward set up
-great sale prices
-has kept rain out
Cons
-easy set up still takes a while
-easy set up is near impossible by one person
-no way to lock (although do not expect high security with plastic walls)
-only 2 anchors provided for corners (I staked rebar down for the middle wall supports)

My car is forever grateful!

Date:October 23, 2014
" We were undecided as to purchasing a snow blower or a Shelterlogic Garage-in-a-Box, upon many discussions we decided to go with the Shelterlogic Garage, not only does this keep my car clean when heavy snow falls come, it also reduced our shovelling by 3/4's. It is very easy to set up and take down, now I can get that extra 1/2 of sleep in time before work knowing my car is always ready to go when I am! "

Good Purchase

Date:October 20, 2014
" I purchased this product 2 winters ago to store my pop up trailer in. I figured if I got one winter it paid for itself as it wash cheaper that storing it at an enclosed storage rental facility. This will be my 3rd winter. I use a broom to push up from the inside to keep snow off the roof. So its paid for itself and I will buy another when this one starts to rip. "
