"As someone else said in the testimonials, don't bother doing the research - I have also done it for you! We have a lake lot with a 30' Fifth-Wheel camper. We wanted a 24' x 36' metal carport
to protect it and to offer us shade and to shield us from the rain. I checked with at least 4-5 dealers for the carports and all were very, very close in price because, as far as I could tell, the carports themselves almost exclusively were manufactured/installed by Carolina Carports. So it came down to customer service.
I found Alan's Factory Outlet
through a google search. Alan's website is very informative, had many good testimonials, plus they are BBB accredited.
I also found a local company who was also a dealer for the carports
. He was helpful enough and we really had a tough time deciding to go with the local guy or Alan's Factory Outlet. After speaking with Alan Bernau Jr. on the phone, the decision became much easier. Alan is very dedicated to his company, he is very friendly, helpful and attentive to our needs in this not-so-small purchase.
We ordered from Alan's Factory Outlet in late March, 2013. Carolina Carports
took over from there with the scheduling of installation of our carport. (They, too, were a pleasure with which to do business.) Although, I called/emailed Alan Bernau, Jr. a few times after that and he always got back to me in a very timely manner.
Our set-up date was set for April 11th. The crew, very polite and efficient workers, was running late and did not arrive at our lot until 6:30 pm, at which time, they started work immediately, and worked past dark. They promised to be back the next morning at approximately 8 am, and they were there a few minutes before. They obviously "knew their stuff" as they made putting up a 24' x 36' carport look easy. They were completely finished by 10 am, including cleaning up after themselves.
We are extremely happy with our carport and also very pleased with the purchasing experience with Alan Bernau, Jr. at Alan's Factory Outlet. We HIGHLY recommend purchasing your carport, shed, metal building, etc. from Alan and his company!"

Very happy with my metal garage at Alan's Factory Outlet.
Alan was really helpful with the purchase of my metal garage. I got the metal building delivered within 2 weeks after I bought it. The guys that came out to put up the metal garage where really nice and did a good job.
If your looking for a metal garage I recommend you go with Alan's Factory Outlet. If I hear anyone who needs a metal building I will send them your way.

I shopped around the Shenandoah Valley and Alan's Factory Outlet had
the best prices not only on the standard price list but also on options
as well. Free delivery was icing on the cake.

My Shed from Alan's Factory Outlet has Great Craftsmanship
Qualities. I created where I wanted doors, windows, and then had many
colors to choose from on shingles, vinyl, shutters, flower boxes. It
was just like building my own little house. Get me a TV and a Lazy Boy
and I am set for life.

extraordinary. If I ever buy another building I would buy it from

I recently purchased a vinyl shed from Alan's Factory Outlet and I
can't stop smiling! The unit is beautifully built and is of top quality
for the money. Even the delivery was top shelf! Thank you and I highly
recommend Alan's Factory Outlet.
Sincerely, Scott Pendlebury, Chesapeake, Virginia
Outstanding Workmanship of Quality and Excellent Service. Would highly recommend Alan's Factory Outlet for all of your Shed needs. The delivery guy was able to put the Shed exactly where I wanted it. I have enjoyed the shed for the last two years. Next I am going to get a Gazebo. Eddie Bennett, Luray VA
We recently purchased a 12x24 Garage from Alan’s Factory Outlet. We
have been very pleased with the Garage, but more importantly we have
been overwhelmed by the super service provided. Alan simply takes care
of his customers. So if customer service is important to you then I
strongly recommend using Alan’s Factory Outlet.

I bought my building at Alan's Factory Outlet because Alan has the best prices! I shopped around at other shed companies and online and could not find a better price.
