Commercial Steel Buildings for Auto Repair Shops & Auto Body Shop

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sun, Mar 17, 2013

Discover your options on commercial steel buildings for auto repair shops or auto body shop

The commercial metal buildings for sale at Alan's Factory Outlet are custom built to meet your needs. 

The detached steel buildings can be used for many different reasons besides an auto repair shop and an automobile body shop, such as commercial buildings, agricultural, equestrian and residential metal buildings.

3 Types of Commercial Steel Buildings

1)  Many of the purposes for a buying a commercial steel building would be because you need a lot of space and are looking for a large steel building with taller legs and big garage doors.  We can make the metal garages in many different sizes.  You get to pick the width and length of the steel garage.  The width on the smaller size steel garages which are usually used more for residential customers or business that do not need large building.  They run 12', 18', 20', 22' and 24' wide.  You can make them as long as you need them.  They start out 21' long and get longer in 5' increments and they go 26', 31', 36', 41', 46, 51', 56', 61', 66', 71', 76', 81', 86', 91', 96', 101' and even longer if you need it longer.  These lengths are the same on all of the metal buildings.  Please keep in mind that there is a 6" front and back end overhang on the steel building so if your getting a concrete pad you will want to make sure the pad size is 1' less in length than the building so for example lets say you are buying the 24x41 size steel building for sale you will want to make sure the pad size is 24' wide by 40' long.  We can make a custom size steel building but since it is a custom size it is the price of the next larger size so it is not the best value per square foot but sometimes it may be worth it if you already have the foundation prepared is one good reason.

2)  The next kind of steel building are the triple wide steel buildings.  They are are made in 26', 28' and 30' wide.  Because of the wider span the are made even stronger than the standard size steel garages. 

3)  The largest and strongest of the steel buildings are called the 40' wide steel buildings.  They are actually made 32', 34', 36', 38' and of course 40' wide.  If your looking for a huge commercial steel building this could be just want you've been looking for.

Once you decide on the size of the building you will want to configure the leg height and garage door size.  They can be made with up to 14' leg height and this is the side at the lowest point of the building so you will have even more head room in the center.  The extra tall structures are really important if you have a mechanic workshop, auto repair shops or a auto body shop where you will need enough space for a lift to work on the vehicles.

There are a many different size garage doors available ranging from 6x6 to 12x12.  If you need a garage door bigger than a 12x12 size we can frame out an opening for you to put in a custom garage door after we install the steel building.  We can even make the garage doors with an automatic garage door opener.

Other options like a walk in door and windows can be added.  You get to pick the exact location for the garage doors, single doors and windows.

Don't need a fully enclosed building?  We also have a full line of steel carports which can be left open or partially enclosed.  The steel carports are available in all of the sizes of buildings we just went over.

Many of our customers have bought the steel building from Alan's Factory Outlet and used it as a commercial building for their business such as auto repair shops, auto body shops, woodworking shop and many other custom metal buildings for agricultural and residential customers.

So if your looking for a commercial steel building whether it's for auto repair shops or auto body shop, woodworking shop or just need some extra storage space than one of the metal storage buildings at Alan's Factory Outlet could be the answer.
