The outstanding waterproofing feature and advanced UV-resistance makes this an all-weather tent. Something else, the tent comes with hot sealed seams which guarantee safety for the occupants.

Measuring 32 feet long and 16 feet wide, this white tent by Delta Canopies is one of the largest I’ve seen. However, contrary to what I had initially imagined, this tent is pretty light. Also, I saw two people set it up in less than 10 minutes.

An Overview On Storage Tents

If you’re searching for a cost-effective way to keep your gardening tools safe or you need protection for your vehicle, you’ll want to consider purchasing a storage tent.

“A storage tent can provide shelter for your belongings in places where you either can’t erect a permanent building or you want the flexibility to relocate it as needed,” says home expert Vicki Liston.

When you’re ready to begin your search for the best storage tent, read the following guide so you know exactly what to look for.

Determine the size of the storage tent that would work best for you.

“The smaller tents usually don’t require any tools and can be quickly set up by only one person,” says Liston. “Bigger ones will need a few tools and an extra set of hands.”

Review the storage tent’s materials to ensure it is capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions. For example, the Eurmax Popup Canopy Tent is waterproof and has UV protection. The Abba Patio Car Canopy Shelter has a heavy-duty steel frame and footpads for stability against the wind.

Liston advises that: “The sturdiest frames on the market are made of steel. Tin, aluminum and polyester are other options, with polyester sitting at the bottom of the strength list.  It’s the easiest to use and extremely flexible but it won’t be durable over time. If you go with the strong steel, ensure it is either galvanized or powder-coated to protect from rust and corrosion.”

Examine the design of the tent’s roof next. Keep the weather and usage of the tent in mind before you purchase one.

“Storage tents with a peaked roof design are the best at keeping rain or snow from collecting on the roof and causing mold or mildew to grow,” says Liston. “If you do go with a rounded top version, the cover should be tightly stretched on the frame and there should be no slack whatsoever for the rain to pool.”

Look at the walls of the storage tent. Do they roll up when the weather’s nice, or are they always down? Some models even have a few windows with outside coverings built into their sidewalls.

Consider any extras the storage tent may offer. Some models come in 18 different colors, so you can match the tent to the color of your house, or simply add a little brightness to your yard. Other models have bonuses like a mesh screen, a roller bag and additional sandbags.

The Storage Tent Buying Guide

  • Check the quality and strength of the tent’s zippers. Users of some brands report that the zippers break easily.
  • One neat trick is to wax the zippers, as this allows them to open and close much more smoothly.
  • Watch for holes forming in the seams over time. You don’t want the tent to begin leaking.
  • Check that the tent can withstand strong winds if you plan on using it for a long period of time.
  • Recruit help assembling the tent, as many models require at least two people to properly set them up.
  • Examine the anchors that come with the set to make sure they aren’t weak. You may want to invest in a set of your own sturdy anchors. In fact, Liston points out: “There’s a good chance your storage tent will blow over (or fly away) on the first blustery day. It’s best to invest in an auger-style anchoring kit to protect your investment, which includes the storage tent and the items inside.”
  • If you plan on using the storage tent near a barbecue grill, you’ll want to make sure the materials are fire retardant. Not all of them are, so it’s important to check.
  • Keep the storage tent properly vented to prevent condensation that could lead to rot.
  • The price for storage tents is directly related to the size. The Eurmax Popup Canopy Tent is the cheapest, as it measures just 10’x10′. The Abba Patio Car Canopy Shelter that measures 12’x20′ has the highest price tag.
