Searching for a new portable shed requires time and research. With Cook Portable Warehouses we make it easy for you! We present all kinds of resources to help you see the quality standards we build our sheds to meet.

If you visit a Cook lot, you may have many questions and that’s great! Our Cook dealers are glad to answer any questions or concerns you may have. We actually encourage you to ask these questions no matter where you search for a shed.

Our Cook dealers hear all sorts of questions from, “what can you do with your portable building?” to, “can I add a door to this?”.

Here are a few more portable shed questions they hear pretty often. Their answers some customers find hard to believe, but we at Cook have years of experience and satisfied customers to backup our claims.   

Common Portable Shed Questions + Cook Portable Warehouses

Do I need to put my shed on blocks or a slab of concrete?

You can if you like, but this is not required, nor needed. Cook portable sheds are built to last. That means they’ve already been treated to deter termites and to withstand the elements.

We even have a lifetime warranty that backs up our claim! Many customers feel that they have to get their sheds off the ground, but with the materials we use, this isn’t necessary.  

One of our dealers has had a sample of our siding, sitting in water for about 2 years and it is still fine.  

It may be difficult to believe, but that’s why we have the warranty to back it up!


You have warranties, but who will I really have to deal with if something does happen?

We service our warranties. If the deficiency is from a third party, we will handle the communication with them. You bought from Cook and will continue to work with Cook if any issues do arise.


How much longer will it take to get my shed if I custom order it?

Honestly about the same amount of time as if you bought off the lot.  That means if you really want an extra door, or a different color, don’t let time be a factor that keeps you from getting the exact shed you want.  

Check out the different ways you can customize your shed.


You’ve told me the price of the shed, but what about delivery and setup?

The price your dealer gave is it! Delivery AND setup are free when you choose Cook Portable Warehouses.  Our delivery team will place it to your specifications and ensure it is level before leaving.

All of our delivery team members are uniformed and have passed criminal background checks, motor vehicle report reviews, drug screenings, periodic check-rides and medical certifications. We have this policy to ensure our customers are always in trustworthy hands.
