Driving down the highway, you’ll see a huge variety of logos on the backs of cars, but chances are good that they were made by one of these 15 auto companies, who own and build a vast majority of models on the roads these days. We’ve painted a picture of this worldwide automotive family tree, along with each major conglomerate’s yearly revenue. Find out who owns Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Nissan, Volvo, Maserati, and all of your other favorite car companies. This map of car corporations might surprise you!

Here at Carport Central, you can find hundreds of metal carports online as well as metal garages. Metal carports can have open sides, open ends, or be partially closed. As they are without walls or have partially enclosed walls (side panels or cut panels), steel carports are also usually less expensive than the metal garages in our online shop. Our helpful building specialists will take your needs and budget into consideration when suggesting which steel building best suits your needs.
In Virginia and West Virginia, you also have the option of wood and vinyl garage buildings for sale. These prefab, Amish-built garages are delivered fully assembled and are available as two-car garages as well as two-story structures. These wooden buildings are excellent options for those who want a more traditional look for their garage structure.
Delivery of these structures usually occurs within 60 days of the order being received by the factory, and it’s often a lot sooner than that. If your carport or metal garage delivery takes more than 90 days, we offer a 10% discount on the balance due upon request. (However, installations/deliveries in DC, IN, MD, NJ, NY, OH, PA, and WV are likely to be delayed in the winter months, so we do not offer the 90-day guarantee in these areas from Oct. 1 through spring.)
A metal RV carport from Alan’s Factory Outlet is easy to set up and protects your vehicle from damage caused by harsh weather conditions with sturdy covered RV storage. Many of our RV carports for sale have a roof with one or two walls to form an effective RV canopy; the differences in design depend on the specific model. But no matter how you customize yours, our RV storage buildings can offer something unique to your property.
We ship nationwide directly to you or your job site. Our prices include FREE JOB SITE DELIVERY except to AZ, AK, & HI. Alaska and Hawaii shipping is calculated by individual quote. Arizona has customer yard pickup available, but individual shipping can be calculated. Your steel garage frame kit will be shipped directly from us via common carrier. In most cases the exterior panels and trim will be shipped from the panel supplier in our network that is closest to your job site location. We have an extensive nationwide database of suppliers for your paneling and reduced shipping is another reason we are able to provide lower prices.
This wood hardness list ranks 75 types of wood by their Janka rating. Explore our wood density chart to see which hardwood is the best for your next project! The Janka hardness scale measures the force that’s required to embed a steel ball halfway through a sample of wood. The ball is 0.444 inches in diameter and fired with increasing force. The pounds of force (or newtons if you’re using the metric system) needed to push the ball to the center is the Janka value you end up with. It’s a great way to measure how resistant a piece of wood is to denting and wear. Our Janka wood hardness chart shows how durable certain wood types are.
Are you looking for a large storage space for equipment, vehicles, tools, or other substantial items? You could rent a storage locker, but they can be expensive, and you’d have to get into the car and drive to the storage facility every time you needed to retrieve something. Our prefab steel buildings are a much more convenient and cost-effective option: Buy one of our steel building kits and you’ll get the space you need with no monthly rental fees required!
Regular roof RV covers are strong and robust. They have the roof panels lined up horizontally running through the length of the building. The A-frame RV carports are stronger and have a more traditional boxed eave. The Vertical style RV carports are the strongest and have the panels running from top to down on the carport letting the snow, dirt, and debris fall off to the ground. The Vertical style RV covers have a 20-year rust through warranty on the roof panels while the horizontal roofs on boxed eave and the regular style motorhome carports only have the warranty for buildings 36 feet long or less.
The regular-style roof is rounded on the sides with a barn-like shape. This is the most economical option for a metal building roof. The leg height on the regular garage packages is 8 feet, but at the top of the bend on the leg, it is 1 foot taller. This gives you 9-foot legs with a 9x8 garage door. The boxed-eave and vertical metal building packages come standard with 9-foot legs fully enclosed with a 9x8 garage door. The metal buildings for sale that have a boxed-eave roof have an A-frame gable roof with a 6-inch overhang on both sides. The vertical style is also built with an A-frame roof and has a 6-inch overhang on both sides. All of our steel buildings for sale have a 6-inch overhang on the front and back ends. The sheeting on a vertical-style roof runs up and down, allowing the snow to slide off of the building so you won’t have to rake the roof. Also, there’s bracing attached under a vertical roof to secure the sheeting. This adds strength to the structure of a vertical garage. When you look at the boxed-eave and regular roofs, you’ll notice that the sheeting runs horizontally over the length of the roof.
Around the world there are many famous and amazing monuments, structures and buildings. Many of these structures have withstood the test of time and have endured from as far back as ancient times. These are often open to tourists who will appreciate the skill of these early architects and engineers. Other, newer buildings, are also appreciated for their design and engineering. From the United States to Asia, travelers and people who are curious about history can appreciate these works of artistic design and ingenuity.
You can also choose from three different roof styles for our steel-frame buildings. Most regular prefab steel barns have a barn-style roof, whereas boxed-eave buildings have an A-frame roof. Other structures have an A-frame roof with vertical paneling that allows the snow to slide off. Vertical paneling is a great option for steel garage buildings if you live in an area that gets a high amount of snowfall.
We do not allow you to pick up steel garages from our warehouse. However, we do offer the option of having steel garage buildings dropped off at your home so you can assemble them. We prefer to deliver and set up our garage structures, but if you’d like to assemble yours yourself, you can. Although you will save 5% on the purchase price when you assemble your own metal garage, installing the garage yourself does void our one-year workmanship warranty.
We usually start our 3 car garages out at 20’ wide and can go up to 30’ wide or more; however, the width will depend on the style of your vehicle and if you wish to have a side-entry. By parking along the length of the building you are saving money by not exceeding 30’ in width. Remember 32’ and beyond in width will bump you into our commercial clear-span garages.
