0-Car Garages and Single Car Garages Defined

0-car garages and single-car garages are enclosed metal garage units that are designed to provide storage for two cars, trucks, boat, recreational vehicle, lawn equipment, and a variety of other uses. As a general rule, most garage manufacturers in the United States refer to their standard 12' wide unit as one car garages they are not certainly limited to a 12' wide unit. Most single car garages typically have only one garage door in the unit. While these units start at 12' wide, we can build a single car garage as narrow as 10' wide and as wide as as you need.

How are 1-Car Garages Utilized?

Our 1-car metal garages products have a variety of practical uses. Customers utilize them for enclosed single vehicle storage, boat storage, travel trailer storage, and more. We recommend a unit at least as wide as 12' for most all vehicles and even wider for enclosed motorhome garages because it can be difficult to navigate larger RVs into these narrow units, not to mention that many larger RVs have slide-outs on them and many owners prefer to open up those slide-outs when in prolonged storage. Other uses for these single-car garages of 1-car garages, such as outdoor workshops, secure storage for motorcycles, ATVs, and lawn equipment. They are more most often used for one-car garages for those homeowners that have a limited amount of space.
