Portable Sheds: Don't Pay for Storage Away From Home

Is your garage is overflowing? Do you have a bunch of items hanging around the house that you "think" you should just go rent a storage locker? Think again. Portable Sheds are the solution to your problem.

Think about it. Why would you want to store your items, even if they are not of any value, away from home? First off, now you have to pack it all up and take it to the storage unit. You pretty much have to have excellent credit in order to rent from those places. You have to sign a contract for a year or pay more for a month to month lease. The rent is high, and how do you know your stuff is actually "safe," like they say it will be. 24 hour secured monitoring - yeah right. Then when you don't pay, your stuff gets auctioned off, like in the TV shows.  That's downright messed up.

Now, what if you could store your items in your back yard, taking up remarkably little space. You don't need to acce ss your unit during "specific hours." It's your own storage shed. If you want to go digging for your old aquarium lid at 2:00 AM in the morning - go for it! You don't have to worry about someone auctioning off your stuff if your don't pay the bill. There are no contract cancellation fees for canceling your storage locker. And the best part of all - in some instances, you don't need excellent credit, or credit at all for that matter. You can do what is called rent to own.

The average cost to rent a medium size storage unit is about $1,200.00 to $1,500.00 a year. The cost of your own storage building, will cost between $800.00 to $2,000.00 Whatever you decide to do, consider the cost between a storage locker for a year and the cost owning your own storage shed. You will pay less to own your own shed, vs. paying rent to the "other guy."
