How to Choose a Garage
Have you bought a new home and need a bigger or new garage? Have you outgrown your current garage and need to add additional space for the cars and equipment on your property? Whatever the reason for searching for a garage...if you are like me, then the most important reason you need a garage is to protect your high value investments such as your car.
You can wash, polish and service your car monthly but that won’t protect your car from the harsh weather our country is renowned for right? No polish will protect your car from hail, salt damage, flying branches and dust storms!
What You Need is a Tough Aussie Garage
A place for you to keep your pride and joy out of harm’s way. And that’s exactly what you’ll find here at Cheap Sheds!
Our range of Garages is manufactured right here in Australia by three of the most reputable and high quality companies in Australia...
But high quality doesn’t mean high price... Click on the links below to check out the range of garages
They’re big enough for most households. If you’re a large family and you need more space you can always add another garage or attach a carport to the end of the garage.
Simple measure the length and width of your vehicle/s so you know what size garage you should buy. You can also choose from coloured or zinc garages, but just check the local council guidelines first as some areas don’t allow ‘Zinc’ sheds due to light reflections affecting aircraft.
Alternatively if you’ve ever wanted your own workshop and have two cars, buy a ‘3 Car’ Garage and use the 3rd bay as a workshop area. Build yourself a workbench or maybe even put a pool table in there so you can have your mates over on the weekend.
We’ve also had customers purchase and build shelves in the garage and use the additional space for storage. You’ll never run out of ways to use your garage.
These are large buildings and a large investment so to make sure you have peace of mind they all come with warranties:
Absco 30 year warranty
Spanbilt 20 year warranty
They are all Australian made and can be shipped direct to your home in all major cities and regional centres of Australia.
How to Choose a Garage that’s Right for You?
Choosing the right garage has never been easier...
In the Cheap Sheds range we have,
They come in either the standard zinc colour (silver) or you can have them supplied in a painted colour (you can easily choose this at checkout on our website). Not only that, but all of our garages come with a 20 Year Warranty!
All garages come standard with the Gable Roof, which allows for good drainage into the gutters and downpipes. To select your garage it’s a simple as following the below steps.
Step 1 – Where will you put the garage?
You can either position the garage up against the home or place it far away. Whatever you decide just make sure you know where it’s going and know the measurements before you buy the garage. Doing this you’ll be able to know how much space you’ve got otherwise you may have a garage that doesn’t fit where you wanted it to go.
Step 2 – Decide how many doors you will need
If you have 1 vehicle then you might only need a single vehicle garage. But if you want to store items in your garage or have some additional space to work, it may be ideal to have a double or triple garage instead.
Step 3 – Barn Doors, Tilt Door or Roller Door
As the garages have different types of doors you will need to determine which one is right for you. For example if you have a high vehicle or something that is quite tall, you may find a roller door is more suitable as it takes up less ceiling space.
Step 4- Painted or Zinc (Silver)
Depending on your taste, you may want a coloured shed to suit the style and layout of your home. The last thing you want is a bright silver garage that takes the focus off your designer home. You can choose from multiple colours when ordering your garage and have a nice coloured garage that complements your home.
Delivery: Depot Delivery or Home Delivery
We have two delivery options here at Cheap Sheds for our garages. You can choose between Depot Delivery, which is cheap, or you can opt for Home Delivery which has a fee depending on your location.
Home delivery is more convenient as the packages are large (as you would expect). But if you have the means to transport your garage home from the depot it is certainly a great option and saves you a lot of money!
Here are more details:
Free depot delivery service is available to a range of local depots around the country as well. You can read about our shipping arrangements and details here.
