10′x20′ buckskin and cream©Portable: When a portable storage building is described as such, it should be completely portable. The building should have complete structural integrity. It should be capable of movement with skids and joists on the floor system underneath the building, and effectively, it should have a completely pressure-treated floor system.

The better the floor system in the portable storage building, the better the building. How better to move a portable storage building than to gauge it by its floor support system. So a good floor system is essential. Complete structural integrity encapsulates the fact that it should be throughout the life of the portable storage building.

Strength: When you buy a portable building, of course it should be strong. But what about 5, 10 or 20 years down the road? Will your storage building be PORTABLE at that point? Would a crew or a few guys be able to pull your storage shed out on its skids, load it up and move it without it buckling because of structural ineptitude, years of water damage or a sagging floor?

Important questions when you are considering the purchase of a building that you may just end up replacing, are they not? This is especially true when you are may be storing expensive, personal items in your portable storage building or unit. Remember, the strength of a pressure-treated floor system and a well-made, warrantied building can mean protection for your items – what you want – besides the added strength which is what you need as well.

Integrity: Let’s face it, a portable storage building is not a buy-it-and-toss-it type of purchase. Why not buy a portable storage building that is built to last? My husband always says, “Buy the best, leave the rest.” There are just some things that are worth checking into first and portable buildings is one of them. Like I always write – doing your homework first pays off; there is just integrity in that.

Do you have trouble finding space in your house to store your things? I do not think that houses are built with enough storage space anymore. There are probably many reasons why houses are not built with enough closet space or small closets. But that creates the need for outdoor storage or backyard storage. What about portable sheds? A lot of people pay for mini warehouses every month but that can get expensive too. It would be irritating to run out of options in just another way because of less space.

I do not even have a simple coat closet for guests in the house I live in and it is quite new.  I guess homes are not built with closetspace planned in advance.  So where do people store things that are not used on a regular basis?  Storage shed space is a good thing if it is paid for especially because then people do not have to rent space and keep paying to store their stuff.  If you own the storage space, you can keep it and use it for whatever you want.  If you buy a storage shed that is too small you can always upsize and the shed keeps its value.  Or if you buy big enough you will have planned ahead, so that you can store and store and have enough space for the future.  Then again, your shed is portable, so that if you move, your value is paid for and you can keep your shed or sell it if you want as well.
