Very pleased with this product, the timbers were very substantial & the structure was secure enough to walk on the roof when fitting the roofing sheets (using crawling boards). As with other users I chose to add more of my own fixings & replace the nails supplied with screws. It looks great and keeps the car frost free. Must mention the fantastic service from the delivery guy as very helpful in placing the items in a convenient position.

I erected the Car Port today having taken delivery from Nederlands earlier in the week. The structure is impressive and does not look at all cheap. It is relatively easy to erect BUT all is not perfect. On unpacking 1 x Facing Board and 1 x Support Post were damaged- both were badly split at one end. The Port was erected as a " Lean To" from the existing garage. The so called "Screws No 1" are quite pathetic and are much too short and a waste of time. This makes moving the assembled part roof impossible. Additional more suitable screws were purchased and they worked well. The Polycarbonate Roof Sheets are fragile and were not used, I chose to fit a felt roof on 9mm boards. The completed Port looks impressive, it is solid and substantial. I recommend it to other potential buyers as outstanding value for money but I do have real reservations concerning the various screws and fittings provided, they do not seem appropriate given the size of timers used.

On the whole, a good experience putting this car port together. Only real issue with it, and reason for only 4 stars, is we couldn’t fit the final edging pieces, somehow they didn’t fit at all. Having said that, it is not a real issue for us anyway.
The actual putting together and erecting went really well and is straightforward.

Some points to note:
1. I only painted the top beams before putting together, and it would have been easier to do so before making the car port, (but the other half couldn’t wait!!)
2. When drilling holes for the posts, don’t go through a gas main (ouch).
3. The polycarbonate covering is flexible, and you can roll it out of the way to screw it down.

Very pleased with final result and it’s protecting my car well.

A very sturdy structure, which was easy to install, by following the instructions, very impressed with the service and delivery. admired by other people who have asked for details of supplier. Excellent timber product, poor quality of plastic corrugated sheeting. not used!!!

The quality of the wood is good, the delivery was extraordinary. It arrived at Just after six in the morning! This was due to the snow spreading all over the south. The driver had two more drops prior to going in to Belgium. He did remarkably well . The roofing sheets are good quality and should last many years. We had a query about the construction plans which did not provide the inner measurement between the supporting legs. The young lady was really very good but suggested that we should use whatever width we thought ! The final product will be very sturdy and perfectly adequate.

Overall we are very pleased with the completed built carport. The quality is good, however the construction instructions could have been more detailed. Advice on the best way to go about building the carport , e.g. how best to construct and fit the roof joists, would have been helpful. We also felt that some of the screws and nails could have been larger. We used additional ones to ensure all joins were strong enough to withstand any weather. We were very pleased with the delivery company who kept us informed of the delivery date and the driver was very helpful when he finally made the drop.

I recently completed the construction of my Tuin Carport and am delighted at the result! It fits perfectly around my VW T2 Camper with the extra height being the main reason for buying it and I wasnt disappointed! Our 'Kermie' is well happy in her new home.. now named Kermie's Kave :-)
Highly recommended...Thank you Tuin!

I found this carport to have minimal instructions included. There is no mention of having to shorten the posts by 600 mm if used with post supports as it now says in one of the online views but not in all.Some timbers were a bit warped but I managed to work around both issues as I was fixing onto a wall and to the house or otherwise it would have to have been rebuilt. Detailing parts not well made and have to be adjusted.

Could have been a real problem for an inexperienced DIYer.

Very pleased with the quality and extremely secure used as a 'lean to' car port. Carpenter was impressed as are many friends who've seen it. Blends in well with the house & garden.

Straightforward to erect and it looks classy. All the pieces were there including every screw and bolt. The delivery man was so helpful, driving his fork lift down 1 mile of country lane and he was spot on time.

We needed a shelter for our recently refurbished Camper. Having done some research into this, we decided to seek advice from Tuin, a firm we learnt about only last year, when our grandson Alex started his apprenticeship there.
We are quite limited for space, so we had fairly specific requirements. We took photos of the space showing measurements and accompanied this with detailed instructions of our needs.
The Tuin Team were very helpful from the word go! The Post Holders were ideal for our use, as the concrete was already in situ. This meant that no height was lost by setting the posts in the ground.
The drive has a slope which meant we were uncertain of the actual height until the vehicle was driven in. We ordered some extra long posts, but this was unnecessary. The rear of the shelter overlaps the garage roof to give further protection to the rear of the van, but this would then leave part of the bonnet uncovered. We made several contacts with Ben and Wayne from the Tuin Support Team for help and advice.
Nothing was too much trouble for them! From the original order being placed Alex and Karen, the delivery which came a day early which was much more convenient (we were notified by phone), the Technical Advice and back-up with the Carport/Lean-to, everything flowed really well!
The extension over the bonnet gave us exactly what we wanted!
Well done Alex, Karen, Ben, Wayne and all The Tuin Team!!! Friends and Neighbours have commented most favourably on the Structure, Sturdiness, and overall appearance and have queried which firm supplied us. We are praising Tuin long and loud to everyone and told them that we shall be ordering anything else we need in the future from Tuin!

All seems very good, we are in the middle of erecting it and fitting box profile roofing sheets to match our existing garage. When completed it will look splendid just in time for snow!

Easy company to deal with, the carport was missing the assembly instructions and fixings, a call had them delivered the next day,
It went together easily and was simple to modify as I needed it a little narrower.
A bit of DIY knowledge is needed as well as some tools, not a difficult project once everything has been set up square,
Good value.

We are so pleased with this product. It was very easy to put together and looks fantastic. Just in time to keep the frost off my car. The ordering process was extremely efficient. We were notified of the date and the driver phoned an hour before arrival. Our driveway is on a hill and the massive lorry could not get up there - but the driver had a small forklift truck and delivered the carport to the top of the hill - exactly where we wanted it! All done with a big smile on his face. Top service all round.

Excellent service. Good quality product. Easy to assemble. Only slight draw back was we had to buy 3 more roof sheets as we felt coverage wasn't enough with the number sent.

Very pleased with the staff that took my order, made my life very easy. Delivery was on the date and time they advised.
When the carport arrived found to be good quality and easy for two people to assamble.
Will contact them if and when I need anything else.
Thank you Turn

This car port is great and covers my BMW 650 and protects it from the sun, water and bird droppings. The pack arrived promptly with all required components. It was easy to erect and looks great. Really happy. I bought separately plywood and then added felt which looks nicer. I also ended up strengthening the roof with extra 4x3 to support the extra roofing. Highly recommend this product.

First of all Tuin were excellent, as were Walpoles, the delivery company,keeping us up to date on the intended delivery, which arrived exactly when specified. The carport has not yet been assembled but we are extremely pleased with the quality of the product.

A good quality product but delivery information could have been better. There were 2 missing major timbers but the Support Service the company has were excellent and we received the missing pieces very quickly. I would buy from Tuin again and would recommend them.

Fabulous product, arrived swiftly and good quality. Easy to put together and looks wonderful. Very pleased. Had previously tried to order this product from another supplier with no end of problems, would advise anyone interested in this product to buy directly from Tuin and you won't be disappointed.

It's ok, it's what I expected. Very cheap and does the job. Easy to put up but I might put a better roof on it.

Good service and the company was easy to deal with.
