Cook Beginnings: Process of Building The Best Shed

May 10, 2021 10:53:09 AM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in About Cook, The Cook Difference


We’ll be honest, in 1984 we didn’t build the best shed. Two businessmen, father and son, accidentally fell into the business because they had excess lumber they needed to sell. So, they asked a local carpenter to build a shed. It was a great shed, but it wasn’t the best shed. 

Building the best shed takes time, innovation and quite frankly failure.

Excess lumber, a handy carpenter and an innovative father/son team clumsily brought Cook Portable Warehouses to fruition. Before the first building was even completed, they’d already sold it to a local man who decided the color, the roof style and more. They hadn’t even said it was for sale yet!

May 4, 2018 1:00:00 PM / by Cook Portable Warehouses posted in Buying a Shed, About Cook



Thinking of purchasing a Cook shed? Here's what you can expect from Cook's shed delivery process.

Three main questions you probably have are these: 

1. What does your shed delivery cost?

2. How long does it take for the shed to be delivered?

3. Who will be in my backyard?


Let's tackle the first question. What's the cost of delivery and setup? It's FREE! We deliver our sheds free of charge. 

For your second question, our typical delivery time is 7-10 business days from the shed purchase date. We strive to make sure every delivery is simple and hassle free for our customers! 

Now, one question you should always ask when looking at shed options is, "who will be in my backyard during delivery?" With Cook Portable Warehouses only a Cook employee will be in your backyard. Our drivers have all gone through background checks and will be driving Cook delivery trucks. We do not hire out through a third party for our deliveries. When you buy from Cook, you deal with Cook through every part of the buying or renting process. 

To ensure you’re ready for your new Cook Portable Warehouse, here are some items to remember when preparing for your portable building to be delivered as well as more information about the entire shed delivery process.

Top of a Cook Portable Shed

If you are in the market for a portable shed, one of the first steps is to decide what style building you are looking for. Here are a few things for you to consider as you begin your search:

  • What is the purpose of the building?
  • What size will best fit your yard?
  • What additional features would you like? (ex. Windows? Extra door? Loft?) 

We've spent decades helping people find more room for their stuff. From gardening storage, to wood working workshops, to man caves, to art studios and so much more! You might be surprised what all you can do when you have the right blank canvas. 

So, how do you decide on the right storage shed for your backyard or business? There are a few things to work through, but here are the main things to always check:

  • Does the shed company have a warranty? Cook offers a Lifetime Warranty on all treated components. You won't find that anywhere else. 
  • Does the shed company work with third parties for delivery or their rent-to-own program? When you choose Cook, you'll always work with Cook. Cook employees sell the sheds and deliver the sheds. You always know the number to call no matter if you have a payment or warranty question: 1-800-772-7883
