This is probably going to go extremely cold but I've posted it anyway. I've been looking at getting something like this and it's a really good price.
You will need to pay £15 for the yearly Costco membership to purchase this.

Protect your car all year round with the elegant Palram Vitoria 5000 Carport. Quicker and easier to assemble, more cost effective and less space consuming than a traditional garage or shed, this durable and sturdy carport features a 4 legged design which provides for wide and easy access to your vehicle whilst shielding it from the elements. This multi purpose canopy is also ideal for use as a gazebo or sun shade.

The structure is constructed from a high quality reinforced aluminium and galvanised steel frame in a dark grey coloured rust resistant powder coat finish. This is complemented by virtually unbreakable bronze coloured 6mm Twinwall polycarbonate roof panels. The panels have anti-UV treatment which reflects strong sunlight whilst simultaneously providing weather resistant thermal insulation. The innovative Super Seal roofing system provides great sealing performance in severe weather conditions and prevents panels from thermal expansion damage, meaning your carport will provide you with years of low maintenance use.

The carport frame has pre-drilled holes for quick and easy assembly, and also offers the option for permanent anchoring if required using the anchoring kit included. The integrated gutter heads with universal drain pipe connection enable easy collection and removal of rain water, and the carport can be re-located and re-assembled to suit your requirements.

A thousand quid for a temporary car shelter when most other times it is probably parked without cover. I'm struggling to see where the value is.......except for being the only person down your street to have one.

Good as a car port or lean to but I think it'll look more like a bus shelter in a garden

Well, a shed generally has walls to keep out the elements so might be more practical. This is more like a £1000 rigid gazebo.

is this fixed to the ground or just relying on its weight to stay put ?

on the picture it has 4 bolts on every leg to be secured to the ground. without that it would fly like a kite.
Good price with a bit of customer back up. This type of design is usually sold on ebay by fly -by nights and you cant get any help after twelve months when they start to show signs of wear. Great find
Without sides, this looks like a sun shade sort of thing - can't see the point in the UK . Certainly no call for this here in Wales with it's horizontal rain
Perfect for clothes drying on a rainy day
I like the way it says it protects your car from UV rays and then doesn't in the picture trying to sell it
Surprised to see a level of ignorance in relation to function/existence of a carport.

If you have a drive, but have reason not to build a garage, these seem like a good idea to me. Keeps majority of weather off the car and useful if returning home in the pouring rain or using the car after snowfall.

Seems like a good price, heat from me.

In the winter you don't need to scrape ice or snow off your car if you've got a carport. I used to have one and it was great for that.
6mm polycarbonate, I guess it needs to be that thin to bend like that, my neighbour has a greenhouse with that in, its forever blowing out, I'd advise sealing edges with some good quality silicone for extra integrity

I used to have a convertible, where I had to leave it parked under pine trees and getting the sap off the hood was a real pain. Admittedly completely a ‘1st world problem’, but if I could have erected one of these I would have.

Polycarbonate has relatively good flexibility and has the ability to bend to that radius with thicker than 6mm.

I’d suggest it’s more to keep the weight/price down (polycarbonate is expensive in comparison to the other thermoplastics, but the benefits are worth it in an application like this). It seems to be trapped on all four sides of each panel within the frame and I can’t see it coming loose.

Whilst the addition of silicone may resolve any rattling issues, I can’t see it preventing panels this size from detaching if they are prone to doing so. It may however invalidate any manufacturer warranty.

Ok, thanks, I use polycarbonate and silicone quite frequently, (conservatory/porch roofs) have done as I suggested to small storm porches on many occasions, and all are still together after gale force winds, 6mm polycarbonate is rubbish, end of, the sealing around the edges if possible would hold it in place, and stop it from blowing out when it bends with the wind . You obviously have very little knowledge in what a good quality silicone is capable of!

The photo probably dose not do it any favours,it looks as though its been erected at a drive thru takeaway.But normally you would have the garage running down the end of the house and as these days what with most houses being built close together when passing it would mostly be seen as a arch.Nice variation from a square carport design.

On the contrary. I have designed several car cover type constructions from ports to pods and I am well aware both of the adhesive bond strengths of different kinds of mastics, either by field adhesion tests or laboratory testing.

I am also aware of the rigorous testing and design interrogation that this product would have undergone prior to release, in terms of wind pressure/suction, tensile strength of materials used, pull and shear resistance of fixings etc.

In contrast to the engineer involved in this product’s design, it is difficult to take seriously the questioning of the design competence of someone, whose only qualifying feature appears to be having installed some porches and conservatories and enjoying talking about the unfortunate folly of his neighbour’s greenhouse.

It sounds like your judgment of 6mm polycarbonate is based upon being installed in a flat plane with poor fixing. To deem a material ‘rubbish’ on this basis is laughable.

I used to know someone who fitted bathroom sinks to the wall with mastic. He didn’t know what he was doing either.

Ah, OK, so you're one of those types of people who's knowledge may well far exceed my own, but the 20 years practical experience you probably lack (almost always exceeds what should happen on paper) and wins hands down each and every time in the construction industry, I didn't come on here to argue , just to give some free advice to someone who may have none.
I'd like to know how you test one of these for the autumns 60-100mph storm winds!
I'd like to point out I don't use silicone instead of the correct fixings, I use it aswell as.

‘... but the 20 years practical experience you probably lack (almost always exceeds what should happen on paper) and wins hands down each and every time in the construction industry‘

Not only incorrect, but also probably the single biggest issue in explaining what is wrong with our construction industry at point of delivery.

Circumstantial knowledge achieved by hands on installation will never see the same range of criteria as experienced during testing and therefore, whilst still useful, can never surpass it.

In response to your comment about testing in 60-100mph storm winds, you design to withstand a maximum wind pressure/suction (kN/sq.m) and base material support on a suitable frame. If testing is required, there are various testing facilities, including the Centre for Windows and Cladding Technology (CWCT) who have a Rolls Royce aeroplane engine set against a rig to replicate high wind speed.

Thanks for the schooling!
This is a great item, I have the flatter version. I’ve had mine up for a few years and shows no sign of wear. It’s powder coated aluminium so no rust issues and very well made. Does rock in high wind a bit but as long as you are fixing into a strong substrate this won’t move. I’ve placed mine in front of my garage which has a fence one side and put on a composite side on the other side which shelters about 90% of the sun in my situation. It survived absolutely fine with the heavy snow we had a couple of years ago. The roof panels bowed with the weight of the snow and ice but went back to normal once it had melted. As others have said you never have to defrost the windows in the winter and keeps car cool in the summer. The panels do rattle a little in heavy wind but have never lifted, they push in from the sides and are in quite big channels. I wouldn’t want to try and stand on them but would likely have to snap in the wind for them to pull out. I have added several motion lights a ring camera along with 2 solar panels to mine which power the garage and camera. I live in Wales with horrible weather at times and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending.

Can you imagine the noise when it rains! 6mm polycarbonate you’d have to put ear protectors on to get to your car.
You better pray there's not a strong wind with this thing
This is a good for when working on your car. My partner is always doing something on his and obvs won’t when it’s raining , so heat from me
It is amazing how greedy people are ready to spend a thousand pounds for something that doesn't protect their car in any way. I've seen some wanting this just because it looks cool in the neighbours yard. God sake.
If this is fitted tight to side of house where flue from boiler terminates, the clearances from window etc may be to small now, potentially allowing products of combustion back into house.
Just incase anyone hadn't taken that into consideration

Also, the roof is thermally insulated so should be nice and toasty working on it in winter.
