4 Reasons Storage Sheds Beat Storage Units

Storage sheds and storage units: They both come to the rescue when you realize you need more space. But should you invest in an outbuilding in your back yard, or pay a fee for an off-site unit?

While there are clear instances in which you might need a temporary storage unit, like if you are moving, storage sheds provide more benefits over the long-term.

Here are four reasons you should start making plans with a shed builder today:

The Price

Units may attract you because they offer low monthly fees, but those fees can add up over of time, and your money isn’t being invested — once you pay the monthly fee, you’ll never see that cash again.

Also, storage facilities often reserve the right to raise rates without renters’ consent. Your fee could get jacked up suddenly. If you stop paying and aren’t able to move your belongings in time, you forfeit the right to the contents of the unit.

Storage sheds are different. They cost more up front, but they’re an actual investment. You get something in return: a durable, beautiful addition to your property. You will have this storage space forever with no monthly fees to worry about.

The Convenience

Whenever you want something in your unit, you have to get in the car, drive to the facility, look for the item and take it home. It’s inconvenient, to say the least. Plus, what if you can’t remember if the item is even there?

Save gas money, hours of your precious time and frustration. Get a storage shed, and all you’ll have to do is run out to your back yard to grab the item you’re looking for.

The Value

A storage shed increases your home value. Potential buyers are just like you — they have boxes and boxes of holiday decorations and gardening tools and no idea where they’re going to put it all, until they see that storage shed in your back yard. It’s a selling point. The value of a storage shed continues to pay you back years after it’s built.

The Enjoyment

It’s hard to get much pleasure from a unit that’s in a locked and gated facility. But a storage shed has so many fun, creative uses besides serving as a place to keep stuff. You can turn it into a hangout in the summertime, or it can serve as an outdoor playroom for the kids.
