Buying a shed or portable building to store away your personal belongings is an important investment. This is an investment to protect your other investments, so you want to make sure you make the right choice. You want to be sure you’re asking, and answering, the right questions before you make the decision to purchase.
These are some questions to consider:
- What size building do I need?
- Where would I put it?
- What do I want it to look like?
- What will I be using the building for?
- What type of shed do I want/need? Metal? Wood?
- Will I be able to afford it?
When trying to decide on what size building you need, you need to think about what you will be putting in the building and the amount of space you have available for the building. If you’re storing away your Spring/Summer tools, you can go for a smaller sized building. However, If you’re wanting to store that classic Monte Carlo or tractor, you’ll need something a little bigger. Another important aspect of this purchase is the amount of space you have for the building. You want to make sure you have enough space for the building, as well as safe ground to put it on. Another important thing to check on is to make sure there aren’t any size restrictions in your neighborhood or city. Bennett Building Systems offers dimensions ranging from 8’x8’ to 14’x36’, or even the option to get a custom steel structure.
The next thing to consider is what you want the building to look like. Most of the time the building you buy will be an extension of your home, so you’ll want it to look somewhat similar. Bennett Building Systems offers buildings in metal and wood, with a variety of colors, to suit the look you are wanting to pursue. If you have a specific football team you are catering to, or a specific hobby, you can also alter your building to mirror those preferred colors. Also, like mentioned above, you want to make sure that there are no restrictions (HOA) on what you can purchase. Be sure to check for these things before continuing on with your purchase.
The last, and most important, aspect of any purchase such as this, is the whether or not you can afford it. You also may need to consider the ways in which you plan on paying for the building. For most of the units we build, Bennett Building Systems also offers the options of financing and “rent to own” to make purchasing a portable building easy and affordable.
When thinking about your next portable building purchase, be sure to ask yourselves these questions. These questions will not only help you determine the type of building you are wanting, but help make sure you’re making the right decisions.
