So, we all have stuff. Whether it is a lot of stuff or only a few things, everyone needs a place to store their belongings. The question is, are you going to rent a storage unit or buy your very own storage shed? Lets weigh the pros and cons.

Storage Unit vs. Storage Shed

Storage Unit

A storage unit is off site. Whether you have to drive 5 miles, or 30 miles, you still have to load up your things in a vehicle, drive to the location, unload everything into the storage unit, and then drive back home. This is very inconvenient and could cost you thousands of dollars! Lets look at the math below for example:

10 ft. x 20 ft. Storage Unit: $95 – $155
$95 x 12 months = $1,140 + tax
$155 x 12 months = $1,860 + tax

 

20 ft. x 20 ft. Storage Unit: About $255
$255 x 12 months = $3,060 + tax

 

Then, add the total cost of gas to go back and forth to the storage unit. If you stop making payments, you will lose the storage unit and everything inside of it. So why not just get your very own storage building? You would save so much time and money!

Storage Shed

A storage shed is in your own backyard. You do not have to drive to it or load up the car every time you want to put a few things in storage. Storage Sheds are just steps from your home and are very convenient. This is also a one-time purchase! You do not keep making payments on them forever. Once you have paid for the building it is yours! Cumberland Buildings has several cost effective storage buildings that will be the solution to your storage needs.
