Protect your vehicle with a Single Carport
Properly designed single carports are simple to install and don’t take a lot of room from your driveway or yard at home
How Much is a Single Carport?
That’s obviously an open question, as prices will depend on the following factors:
- Size – Width, Length and Height
- Design – What type of roof type you want
- Wind Region – A carport in cyclonic areas has to be stronger than a non-cyclonic carport
However, to give a ‘ball-park idea’, prices can start from $2000 and go to about $7000
Single Carport Size & Dimensions
The sizing of a single vehicle carport will vary, depending on the width, length and height you need. For example, a carport to suit a caravan or boat can be very different to something that suits a car. Caravans, boats etc. tend to be much higher and usually longer than cars. Typically a lot of suppliers see a single carport size to be about 3m x 6m, however Excalibur Carports have the ability to do just about any size that you need.
Carport Sizes such as:
- 3m x 5m
- 3m x 5.5m

Australia is made up of different wind region. The higher the wind speed, the stronger the carport has to be (which is one reason why prices vary) . All wind areas are catered for in the carport designs, including cyclonic. So no matter where you are, you will receive a carport that has been designed and quoted to suit your local wind and weather conditions.
Strong Steel Posts Used
With a carport, the posts are the only things supporting and holding the carport up. So it’s fairly important to have the right size and strength. Post size can vary depending on several factors such as carport type, height and wind region. Unlike some others, we would recommend and use at least 75mm size SHS steel posts up to larger 100mm SHS posts in nearly every case. 125mm posts have also been supplied for large projects including schools, factories etc. Don’t make the mistake of buying a carport with posts that are too small.
