How High Does a Garage Need to Be for a Large Truck?
You have a large pickup truck that is basically your baby. You need somewhere to store it during inclement weather, so it doesn’t get damaged. We get it. We feel the same way about our trucks, so you’re not alone.
Garages for Large Pickup Trucks
Many of our customers reach out to us with questions concerning how to choose among the garages we have available. One of the most popular questions we receive is if our garages will accommodate their large pickup truck. We are proud to say that all of our garages can fit most large pickup trucks because they are 9 feet tall.
Three Garage Styles for Pickup Trucks
We offer three styles of garages to meet our customers’ needs.
The boxed eave style is our most popular garage. It features a standard garage measuring 24 x 26 x 9. This is ample room to park a large vehicle inside, and makes it easy to drive the vehicle in and out of it.
A door is an option that many customers choose, so they do not have to open the garage door each time they want to enter the garage. A window is also placed on the side for aesthetic reasons.
This particular boxed eave garage also has a carport attached to it. This means you can protect two vehicles with this structure. The carport measures 9 feet by 8 feet, which makes it perfect for small to mid-sized vehicles, or for storing a riding mower or other equipment.
Since the carport is not enclosed, some people have chosen our two car garage. The size is similar the boxed eave style shown above, but instead of the carport, there’s another enclosed garage. This makes parking two larger vehicles a breeze.
This vertical garage style does not include the carport or second garage door, but it has a lot of room to park a vehicle and store items, such as holiday decorations, landscaping tools, etc. It is also 24 x 26 x 9. It has two windows on one side and an optional door for access into the garage without opening the big door.
Measuring for Better Decision Making
If you’ve modified your truck, it may be wise to measure the height of your truck before making a purchase. You’ll want at least 5 inches of clearance when purchasing a garage for it. Once you have your measurements, you’ll have a better idea of which garages will work best. You’ll also be able to then decide on which garage style you prefer.
