Storing Vehicles in a Pole Barn

If you are constructing a pole barn from a pole barn kit and plan to use the building to store vehicles, there are some tips you should consider. Many people, both for residential and commercial purposes, will choose a pole barn building for vehicle parking. From tractors and trucks to cars and SUV's, a pole barn makes for a great garage and can be customized to accommodate vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

Here are a few tips for getting the most out of your pole barn for vehicle storage.

Plan for a Garage: Essentially, what you are building from your pole barn kit is a garage. This means ample interior space and doors that are wide enough to drive vehicles through. When shopping pole barn kits look for those that have the dimensions you need to safely house your vehicles. Also look for custom add-ons such as rolling doors and electric door openers that will make using the garage much easier.

Assess your Vehicle Inventory: If you are building a pole barn for your family cars it won't take long to determine your needs. Chances are you have an SUV, a sedan and perhaps a spare car that is being saved for when your children turn 16. However, if your pole barn is being built for commercial use, then you will need to plan more thoroughly. Dump trucks, flat bed trucks, tractor trailers and service vans are large vehicles and you will need to carefully measure the dimensions to ensure you have the space to fit all your vehicles.

Consider Custom Options: The great part about modern pole barns is how easy it is to customize. Back in the day a pole barn was a simple structure and was basically used for farm storage. Today, you can create a custom garage with epoxy flooring, electric rolling doors and even air conditioning to keep the storage space cool on hot summer days. You can also plan to have your pole barn act as a temporary repair shop where you can provide quick fixes on vehicles.
