 Gardening Tips from Cook Shed Dealer

One of the main questions to ask when considering the purchase of a portable warehouse is - “What size portable building do I need?” 

Because families and businesses are always growing, it’s never easy to predict your future storage needs.

At Cook Portable Warehouses, we are always looking for the best way to help our customers get the storage they need, on their terms. For example, the Rent to Own shed program provides a flexible way to get the right size portable building with monthly payments that are comparable to storage units and go toward the overall cost.

When picking the right shed size, here are a couple things to think about!
