An open carport
If you are a person who struggles to manoeuvre in or out of a parking space, choose an open carport instead of an enclosed or partly enclosed one. This way you can easily overlook the parking area and use the posts as reference points. This way, parking is easier than ever before!
Carports are free-standing timber structures, which can be installed anywhere in your property. To make the parking easier, you can install a carport in a way to avoid reverse parking. If your driveway or garden allows installing a drive-through carport, using one end for driving in and the other for driving out.
Single carport vs. double carport
Do you hate tight parking spaces? Or do you even struggle to park into a standard-sized parking space? If so, a carport is a perfect solution. Order a bespoke carport that is a bit wider than a standard single carport, or even opt for a double carport! This way you will avoid parking in tight spaces forever!
A carport with glass sliding walls
Do you want to opt for an enclosed carport to provide maximum protection for your car, but you still feel uncomfortable parking your car into an enclosed structure? A carport with glass sliding walls allows you to overlook the parking area while still protecting your car from bad weather conditions!
To make the manoeuvre in or out of the carport even easier (especially in the dark), take care of the lighting. Good lighting helps to overlook the parking area, preventing accidents. If you want to make the parking even easier, install driveway lighting as well.
