When you are at home, your car is typically stored in your garage and is safe there. However, for those who do not have a garage or who have multiple cars, using a car canopy is crucial. Also, you should pick the right type of car shade canopy, depending on weather you are a business, traveler, or just want one for your home! There are many different types of car canopy. The first we will discuss is the Traditional Car Canopy.

Part 1: Traditional Car Canopy For Stationary Using

A traditional car canopy is the type of canopy you can build outside. It will typically resemble a small structure outdoors to cover the car, and is typically built long term. These are typically one of the cheapest types but are designed to stand long term so will handle many seasonal cycles. They look like the below example: These are commonly used in some public parking spaces for employees, businesses or for second cars outside one's own home if they have enough space. They will withstand a lot of weather and temperature cycles. These are the most expensive type but are also permanent. The car can also be secured with these by a chain or other security method to give an additional layer of security from car theft. The next section will discuss mobile car canopies.

Part 2: Mobile Car Canopy For Temporary Request

The mobile car canopy is like the traditional car canopy, but it is more mobile and can be disassembled and reassembled easier. These canopies are typically used on family outings such as camping. An image of one is below:

They have the advantage of being able to be moved around easily and will protect the car from weather and sun. They are not intended for long term, due to slow weathering and the UV light from the sun can make the material brittle. These do have the advantage of also being an ideal party tent when you have guests round!


They are versatile and can be easily moved when required. They are not permanent structures, but they will stand for a long time without disturbance.
