Want to buy a tray larger than my my car to catch oil and snow drips
in my garage.  Size around 10 x 20 feet. Should have sides to contain

Hi electronic-ga,

I've found several garage floor protectors on the Web. However,
standard size is usually 9 x 20 (I have found one company that offers
a 10 x 22 pad), and all seem to use channels to get liquids and debris
out of the garage rather than sides. Since this doesn't exactly meet
your criteria, I wanted to check with you first before posting an
answer.  Would purchase information on such pads be acceptable to you?

The purpose of the tray is to keep water from running off the sides or
back where it damages the ceiling of the room below the garage.  If
the water goes out the entrance, OK.  9 x 20 OK; 10 x 22 is better. 
Please provide all links to catalog information for purchase. Thanks.

Thanks for your clarification, electronic-ga.  Here's the information
I've been able to find...

The best choice seems to be CARPADŽ, which claims to be, "the
patented, year around industrial vinyl garage floor cover with
flexible 1 inch raised sides for under an entire vehicle. Contains
leaks and liquid runoff and offers increased safety and protection in
your garage" You can order the CAPPAD from Tools Galore...

Scroll a bit down the page and you'll see the various CARPAD pads. 
Unfortunately, the Extended 22' X 9' Garage Floor Protection Pad
($174.95) is out-of-stock according to the site. The next size, the
Full 20' X 9' ($159.95) Garage Floor Protection Pad is in stock,
according to the site.

That link brings you directly to the catalog page. You might want to
come in through their main (framed) page at...

...and on the "Click here to See more CarPad products" link to reach
the page in the frameset.

You may want to call or email them to see when the larger CARPAD will
be available again, or if they have custom sizes that might better fit
your needs.  Their contact info is:


Toll Free 1-800-461-1126 
USA ( all 50 states ) and Canada
Outside USA and Canada


CARPAD has its own site, too, although it doesn't seem to be as
informative or shopper-friendly, and apparently more expensive, as
ToolsGalore, but you may want to contact them directly.  Their site is
at They have an 800 # -- 1-800-635-7927 and
their email is While I obviously didn't go through
the full order process, you can apparently order directly through
CARPAD througfh Yahoo Shopping.  They note they're selling the
"Etended" model for $225.00.


Better Life Technology claims to be
"The  World's Largest Producer of Garage Floor Protectors" and that
their "ParkingPad" "Channels liquids & debris out of garage." You can
read more about the ParkingPad at
 and Their 10 x 22 model can be
purchased through Sam's Club Online for $188.97 ...

...however, you'll need to also purchase a membership online if you're
not a member and if you want to purchase through Sam's Club.  Various
other sizes are available through other locations, including Yahoo
Shopping at

You may alsop want to contact Better Life Technology for a custom
quote, if you feel that the standard model might not do the job for
you. Call Tonya Robinson (913)-894-0403 ext. 25  or contact them
through email at

Finally, T. Byrne Motorsports offers a Garage floor protection mat,
which they claim also "channels liquids and debris." The 9' x 20'
version is $195.99, and can purchased through

Personal opinion only, based on my reading of the various sites, I'd
suggest that the CARPAD would be your best bet, though you may want to
contact either Tools Galore or CARPAD itself to discuss whether a
custom pad would better fit your needs.

Hope that helps. Feel free to ask for a clarification if you feel you
need further information.
