Storage Solution Options
Many Maryland residents have a common issue, their home lacks adequate storage space. There are 3 viable long term solutions to this problem:
Expand the Storage Capacity of Your Home
This can be accomplished by adding additional garage space, repurposing a basement or attic space, or adding more closet space to your home. Any majors changes or additions to your existing home will require obtaining permits from your local municipality and often times hiring a contractor to do the work.
While this is the most convenient storage solution in the long run, it is also the most expensive, and the most time consuming to complete the project. For homeowners who have space to repurpose, or time and finances for a building project this is a great storage solution.
Lease Space At A Storage Facility
Leasing space at a local storage facility is the quickest way to resolve storage issues, all it takes is a phone call to rent space at your local facility. This option also requires the least amount of cash down but ends up being the most expensive option in the long run. A 10’ x 20’ storage space will generally cost around $250 per month. Which amounts to $3000 per year.
While this may be a viable solution for some Maryland residents, it is not a good solution for everyone. The distance to your closest facility may help you determine the feasibility of this option. Leasing space at a local facility requires that you have a way to transport your items back and forth between your home and the facility. Accessibility and storage capacity is generally not an issue as most storage units at storage lockers are available 24 hours a day and have units available in sizes from 5’x5’ to 30’x30’.
Likely the biggest drawback to this solution is that it is by far the least convenient. You will need to make a trip through traffic to the facility. Open your locker and load the items in your car, then make your way back through traffic to your home. Only to discover as you are unloading the car, you left one item at the storage facility that you really need for tomorrow’s party.
Expensive, inconvenient and frustrating are good words to describe this solution.
Purchase A Storage Shed
Amish made sheds are an excellent storage solution for Maryland residents. These outdoor storage sheds are available in a number of stock sizes, or a custom size to accommodate your specific needs.
Amish made sheds are in stock and available for purchase at our Olde Sale Barn, Denton MD showroom with quick delivery service available. Want to resolve your storage frustrations? Stop by and browse our inventory, pick a shed from our lot and have it delivered in a few days.
Purchasing a storage shed outright will be your cheapest storage solution option in the long run. A 12’ x 24’ shed will run approx. $10,000 depending on design and options. This is significantly more space than $250 a month buys you at the local storage facility. If you were to rent space at the local storage facility for 3 years and 3 months you would have spent the same amount of money and have nothing to show for it. In the same timeframe you could own your shed.
Don’t let $10,000 scare you off, we have small sheds with small price tags as well as larger shed swith larger price tags. We also recognize that not everyone is currently in a position to pay several thousand dollars for a shed. Therefore we offer rent to own programs so you can eliminate your storage frustration today and still save money long term.
Amish made sheds are considerably more convenient than storage at a local facility. No trips across town to your unit. No more frustration when you get back and realize you left something there. Your shed will be conveniently located in the backyard or beside your garage. Just walk out and stow what you don’t need or retrieve what you need.
