Three things to con­sider be­fore pur­chas­ing

Moose Jaw Times Herald - - REAL ESTATE SHOWCASE -

Tired of hav­ing to clear heaps of snow from your car and drive­way ev­ery morn­ing? Why not elim­i­nate the need to do so al­to­gether with a tem­po­rary car­port? If this sounds like the per­fect so­lu­tion for you, be sure to con­sider these three points be­fore sign­ing off on a model to buy or rent.

Ev­ery mu­nic­i­pal­ity has its own reg­u­la­tions in place sur­round­ing the use of tem­po­rary car­ports. To avoid get­ting slapped with a hefty fine, make sure to com­ply with your lo­cal by­laws by find­ing out whether you’ll need a per­mit and what types of struc­tures are and aren’t al­lowed.

If you don’t have the time or are oth­er­wise un­able to safely and ad­e­quately in­stall your tem­po­rary car­port, there’s sure to be a busi­ness nearby that can help you assem­ble and take down the struc­ture. Ask your neigh­bours for their rec­om­men­da­tions.

To keep your ve­hi­cle pro­tected all win­ter long, choose a tem­po­rary car­port with a gal­va­nized steel struc­ture and a thick, UV-re­sis­tant tarp. In ad­di­tion, look for a model with two doors (one in the front and one in the back) and large win­dows that of­fer a clear, unob­structed view of the sur­round­ing area.
