Benefits of a Portable Building vs. Self-Storage


We all love our stuff and have a hard time getting rid of it. We love activities that involve tools, memorabilia, boats, bikes, holiday decorations and hobby supplies. Unfortunately, all this stuff can easily end up crammed in corners and closets, where it’s hard to get to and easy to forget. There’s a special name for too much stuff—it’s clutter.


Is renting a self-storage unit a good use for your money? What if you could apply that rental payment to a beautiful building that helps you manage your clutter, not hide it away? And on top of it, you can increase the appearance and value of your property, and enjoy multiple uses that no self-storage unit can provide. Take into consideration that we offer some type of financing. You may even opt to use a credit card or your own bank or credit union. The bottom line is if you own a home and rent an off site storage unit for more than a year you are throwing thousands of dollars out the window.


An attractive building is a great incentive to organize your belongings and get rid of the things that are worn, outdated, or just plain unnecessary. Rather than being hidden away, the things you choose to keep are valued and used on a regular basis. Are you heading out for some white-water kayaking or starting a woodworking project? Your equipment is ready for action, without having to drive to the storage facility or wait for it to open.


A Bennett Buildings Portable Building is more than just storage. It can also function as a workshop, potting shed, craft studio, or whatever else you can think of! Imagine a shed, mini garage, barn, or cabin as a new focal point in your backyard. Use it as an outdoor living space for entertaining with your own landscaping, seating, and a grill or fire pit. No self-storage unit can give you the satisfaction of a space that you can personalize as your own retreat. And at the end of the day, you’ll have a place to store your grill, tools, summer furniture, and more!


The self-storage industry is making a ton of money from people who need a place to store their belongings long term. Your backyard shed  will  pay for itself in self-storage cost savings, so save time and money with one of our buildings.
