7 Important Things to Consider When Purchasing an Outdoor Storage Shed

May 13, 2014 2:30:00 PM / by Cook Portable Warehouses


There are a lot of deciding factors you’ll want to consider when it’s time to choose a storage shed.  In fact, there are so many elements involved that some may actually slip your mind. That’s why we’ve compiled this comprehensive list!

  • Appearance

We know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but appearance is always one of the first things we notice – even when talking about storage sheds. Did you know that an attractive, functional storage shed can actually increase your home’s value? It’s true! That’s why Cook Portable Warehouses provides sheds in a variety of styles and sizes. You can even customize your own shed with our “Build a Warehouse” tool!

  • Features

Because your building will be left outdoors, there are a lot of factors that will come into play. Weather, outdoor critters, and repeated all share roles in the longevity of your portable warehouse. Don’t make the mistake of looking past a shed’s features. These details will be vital in the life of your shed and could actually save you a lot of trouble in the future.

  • Quality of Construction

Along with the features and materials involved, you’ll want to ensure that your shed has been built by experts who know what they’re doing. Professional craftsmanship results in a professional grade portable building.  That’s just a fact, and it’s why we can afford to place these three invaluable warranties on all of our buildings (both new and pre-owned).

  • Customer Service

From the first time you speak with a sales representative to months after your shed has been delivered, you’ll want to know that your needs are being met. Someone should be there to hear your concerns and offer guidance when necessary.

  • Delivery Time

As with any important purchase, once a decision has been reached, you don’t want to wait. At Cook Portable Warehouses, we understand this concern.  In fact, your new shed can be delivered in as little as seven to ten working days! How is that possible? Find out here!

  • Price

For many, cost is the most significant factor involved when buying a shed. That’s why Cook provides a Lowest Price Guarantee. If you find any same-size building offering all Cook’s special features at a lower advertised price – whether it’s now or up to six months from your purchase –we’ll be happy to reduce our price by 50%.

  • Payment Options

Cook Portable Warehouses also offers a variety of buying options. You could choose to purchase your shed outright, or you may want to look into our rent-to-own option. In fact, a large majority of our customers have chosen the rent-to-own method.  See what all of the hype is about!  Likewise, it’s important to note that our pre-owned buildings offer the greatest value for our customers. Find out why by learning more!
