How to Determine the Price
We know you’re probably wondering what the price of your new triple-wide carport will be. This is an important question to ask, but there are several factors that go into it. Before you determine the price, you need to consider your location as well as the building’s features and size.
1. It’s About the Size
One of the main factors that affects the price of a three-car carport is its sheer size. A good rule of thumb is that your carport’s price should almost be directly proportional to its size. This means that the larger your new metal building is, the higher the price will likely be. The biggest reason that this factor affects the price due to the amount of steel needed to complete construction. The most common size is roughly 30’ wide, but our metal carports can be designed as large or as small as you need them to be.
2. It’s About the Location
Your location is another factor that can greatly affect the price of your new steel triple-wide carport in a few ways.
We use high-quality manufacturers all over the country to bring you the best metal building or metal carport kit possible. However, every manufacturer is different, and there will certainly be variations in their prices. For this reason, the exact same building could be priced differently in two different states.
However, the location itself affects the price, too. Areas that are difficult to get to, such as remote, mountainous locations, will increase the cost more than an easily accessible residential area might.
The physical location also affects the price due to the certifications needed. Areas that experience severe weather, natural disasters, or heavy snow loads will need to be certified to meet those conditions. These requirements and certifications add to your metal carport’s price.
3. It’s About the Additions
Carport Central is proud to provide completely customizable metal carports. These customizations make every 3-car carport we sell unique to the buyer, but they also affect the price. The biggest differences in price occur when you add features that are not offered in the standard option. For example, you can opt for extra sturdy 12-gauge steel framing instead of the industry-standard 14-gauge. You might also choose one of our premium colors—burnished slate, copper, or crimson red—instead of the standard options. Adding gables, extra trusses, roll-up and walk-in doors, or windows will all affect your metal carport’s price.
4. And the Certifications
We’ve briefly mentioned certifications and how they can affect the price of your new three-car carport. However, they’re important enough to get their own section. A certification is an official assurance that your metal building can withstand natural phenomena to a certain, predetermined extent. All our buildings can be certified to withstand various seismic loads, side snow loads, roof snow loads, and wind loads. For example, a 3-car carport in a hurricane-prone area will need to be certified to withstand wind loads up to 140 mph.
It’s important to understand that certifications aren’t all-encompassing. We manufacture your metal carport to meet the local codes and regulations in your area. So, if the area you live in isn’t prone to hurricanes, your building might have a lower wind load rating than one in a hurricane-prone area. Typically, the stricter the regulations are, the higher your price will be due to the increased certification requirements.
The Best Rule of Thumb
We’ve talked about the four main factors that affect the price of your new metal carport from Carport Central, but there’s still more we want to say. When it comes down to it, the most important thing to know about your 3-car carport and pricing is that, the more customized your structure is, the higher the price will be. If you’re still wondering what qualifies as customization, we’re here to explain! All of our metal carports and metal carport kits can be customized by choosing the foundation and anchor type, the type of doors and windows, the color and gauge of the paneling, the certifications, the fortifying features, and the aesthetic features. All of these will affect your three-car carport’s price.
We’ve touched on the four main factors that affect the pricing of your new metal carport from Carport Central, but there’s more! When it comes to metal buildings and their prices, the more customized your structure is, the more it will cost. Questions about what qualifies as customization? All our metal carports and carport kits can have customized foundations and anchor types, doors and windows, colors, and even varying panel gauges. Customizations also include certifications, and structural and aesthetic features. Each of these factors will independently affect the price of your 3-car carport.

Choosing the Right Size
There are three things you’ll need to consider when deciding on the size of your triple wide carport: width, length, and height.
Our three-car carports start at 26’ feet wide; with the industry-standard ranging from 26’-30’. However, we suggest choosing a carport width that’s 30’ or greater. This will give you that extra space between your vehicles, so you’ll never have to worry about tight squeezes or dinged doors.
The industry’s standard length is 21’. However, we suggest choosing a longer metal carport if you have larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. We also suggest a longer metal carport if you want to fully enclose your carport. Any extra space can easily be used for storage.
Your triple wide carport’s height is entirely up to you. We do suggest giving yourself plenty of clearance to avoid any future issues. Average carport height typically runs between 10’-12’.

All our steel buildings are prefabricated by our exceptional manufacturers across the country, streamlining the process from design to installation. We’ve streamlined the installation process, too!

This means customization options like foundations and anchors, panel gauges, carport color, doors, and windows! And that’s not all! We have many additional add-ons like trusses, gables, cupolas, and lean-tos.
3. The Best Protection
When you buy a metal carport, you’re wanting protection for your vehicles. This is exactly what you’re getting with a premium metal carport kit from Carport Central. A strong steel carport is the best way to protect your vehicles because steel is impervious to creepy critters, heavy rain, strong winds, and falling debris. Plus, with a well-built metal carport, you’ll have lots of room leftover to store the stuff that’s cluttering up your house!
4. The Most Affordable
The biggest appeal of a 3-car carport kit is that it’s so affordable. Steel is the most budget friendly material on the market because of its longevity. But you save even more money with the metal carport kit because you get a discount! Since we won’t be installing your building for you, you get to keep a little extra cash in your pocket. It’s a win-win situation all around!
5. The Best for the Environment
If you’re trying to be environmentally conscious, a steel carport is the right choice. Steel is the most environmentally friendly material on the market because it is 100% recyclable. In fact, all our buildings and kits are already made from 85% recycled steel.
Another factor that makes metal carports so environmentally friendly is they tend to be the most energy efficient structures available. Once you have them properly insulated, you’ll stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter!
What About Certifications?
Certifications are an absolute necessity no matter where you live. In the United States, there’s extreme weather of some kind no matter where you are. You may deal with seismic activity, severe storms, tornadoes, blizzards, or hurricanes. We have certifications for all those possibilities. Your triple wide carport must stand strong through it all, so you need to get it certified to meet your area’s codes. Engineering your metal carport to local standards ensures that it will stand for years to come, regardless of what Mother Nature brings your way.
What to Do Before Installation Day
Deciding to buy a high-quality metal carport from Carport Central is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. but you need to make sure your installation site is prepared before installation day rolls around. There are two main steps you need to take to prepare your installation site.
Buying a high-quality metal carport from Carport Central is a big decision! Before you start, you need to ensure that your installation site is prepared ahead of time. Two of the biggest steps in this process are:
-Laying your foundation
Your foundation sets the tone for your entire three-car carport, so you need to make sure it’s secure. The foundation needs to be completely level to properly support your steel building. Unlevel foundations undermine your structure’s security.
The second step will be to make certain you have access to all the utilities you’ll need in your triple wide carport. If you need to install plumbing or electrical lines, this will need to be completed before your metal carport is installed.
Get Your Permits for Peace of Mind
Another important step you need to take before you get your new three-car carport is to gather your permits. Building permits are documents that verify your metal carport is in accordance with local requirements. Having a permit is a good way to know that your building is safe and won’t be a legal liability. If you fail to secure your building permits, you might be subject to fines, forced to rebuild, or even, in some circumstances, be required to tear down your structure.
Now that you know why you need your permits, you’re probably wondering how you get them. The process isn’t difficult, but it can be time-consuming. We suggest talking with your local zoning commissioner to see what local requirements are in place before designing your building. After you’ve designed your structure, you’ll need to take the engineering drawings before your zoning board prior to installation. This should be done as soon as possible, because it can take up to three months for you to get all the proper permits.
