Garage Buying Process

At Lidget Compton we think we offer the most comprehensive range of product in the UK today. If you cant see what you want within our standard range, we can probably make the building you want. We haven’t been beaten yet!

Choose Your Garage Style

Although our range is possibly the most comprehensive in the UK, it is easy to choose your building.

The first stage of the garage buying process is to choose from the 6 basic SHAPES we have available. 6 shapes, but endless design possibilities. Our options range means that you can personalise the building to your requirements

Within the main garage shapes there are a wide range of different garage styles such as double garages, lean-to’s, garden rooms, battery garages and commercial buildings.

Choose Your Garage Size

Having surveyed your garden, select the width and length of the building you want. The size of garage you choose really depends on how much space you have available and what you intend to use the garage for.

Our garages start at 8’6″ (2.59m) wide and 16’3″ (4.95m) long (other sizes are available via our bespoke Design&Build service). If you intend to use your new garage for a car we would recommend a minimum size of 9’6″ (2.89m) x 16’3″ (4.95m) but this would depend on how big your car is. A 9’6″ (2.89m) wide garage would come with an 8′ wide door so measure the width of your car including wing mirrors (if they don’t fold closed) to ensure your car will fit.

You can get an accurate quote based on the size you require in our Get A Quote section. We also have a handy Building Size Guide available where you can find out more about the size of our garages and sheds.

Lidget Compton Tip

Surveys show that most people would have a larger building than they originally specified once its installed – a wider and/or longer building costs less if chosen when you first select – although possible to extend buildings later is possible, but much more expensive.
