What To Look For When Buying Used Sheds


If you are like many others out there, you have a lot of things that need to be placed in storage, but you may not have a lot of money to pay for rental space or a brand new storage shed. A great option is used sheds, you can often find them at a great price and they will suit your needs. A few things to consider when you make the decision to buy a used building; is there any noticeable damage, is the price reasonable, and will the building suit your needs.

Used Sheds

Many people take the time to look over a used car purchase with the finest of combs, they like to make sure that they are getting a good deal on a quality car. The same care should be taken when looking at used sheds. You do not want to purchase a wood shed that has termite damage, and you would not want a garden shed that has a hole that might let critters in. It is reasonable to expect an outdoor shed to have normal wear and tear, but you don't want to purchase something so damaged you will not get your money out of it.

Negotiating a good price is always something to bear in mind. Before you purchase used sheds, take a look at home improvement stores for the price of new sheds. If the price of the used building seems too high, negotiate with the owner. Be sure to take price comparisons with you so that you will have leverage. You should also price how much it would cost to buy building materials to construct your own shed. Do not buy a used building if it would be cheaper to design and build one on your own.

Finally, bear in mind what the purpose of the used sheds will be. If you are looking to store your lawn equipment, you will most likely want a wooden or metal storage building. Children's outdoor toys can be easily stored in a plastic shed that does not take up too much room in a yard. Extra items from your home would be fine stored in either wooden or steel buildings. In addition to what you are storing, how much you are storing will help determine whether you should buy that used storage building for sale.

If you have a large number of wooden pallets (about 25), you can build an inexpensive and durable tool shed at a low cost. I used two 4x4 pallets for the floor, four pallets for the roof and two pallets on the lower section of each well. I bought a few pieces of wood at Home Depot but most of the materials came from the wooden pallets.

We bought a used plastic shed. Plastic sheds are more resistant to regular wear and tear and can better withstand extreme weather conditions. I actually prefer it more than wood.

Keep in mind that when buying a used shed you'll probably have to get it disassembled and pay for having it transported to your backyard. Do a double check.
