Collectors Car Garage

For those fortunate enough, the garage has evolved from a functional shelter for your car into a recreational escape, where car enthusiasts are free to indulge their passion. For many car collectors, the garage is akin to a living museum, where reverence for their classic cars approaches religion. That level of respect requires a special facility, and many famous car collectors are choosing massive steel buildings to house their cherished possessions. Here are five of the most amazing collector’s car garages:

Collectors Car Garage

This facility in Bedford Hills, N.Y., is a country club of sorts for car collectors. Many car collectors run out of space in their private garages. Bob Machinist, an entrepreneur with an affinity for classic cars, opened a 120,000-square-foot steel building in 2005 to alleviate some of that overflow. Because steel garage building kits allow for easy expansion, that 120,000 square feet increased to 145,000 as demand increased. Because the more than 200 cars are so valuable, the company stresses the importance of the fireproof steel structure.

Many of these car enthusiasts choose steel buildings for their modern advantages, and those advantages still ring true for small garage owners as well. First and foremost, the buildings must protect valuable property. Steel garages are durable and able to withstand even the harshest environments in addition to being fireproof. Car owners are also able to maximize their space with clear span buildings that provide high ceilings and no columns. If your collection does need some more room, our garage building kits allow for the highest level of customization, so you can begin your own ultimate car collector’s garage.
