Advantages of having a storage shed

Being able to store your extra belongings at home is a far better alternative than paying out huge monthly fees for a self-storage facility. Today people are turning to the *garden shed* from Col Western Shed as an alternative.

You can be paying a few hundred dollars a month for a self-storage facility, or you could take that money and invest in buying your own storage shed instead and you’ll increase the value of your home as well!

Why invest in a storage shed from Col Western Shed?
Any additional structures on your property that serve a useful purpose AND look good will only add value to your property. Your shed becomes far more appealing if your storage shed is a multipurpose shed, not just used for storing the lawnmower or even all your *keepsakes*. Some storage sheds can be used as a home office, place for guests to stay, a man cave, teenage retreat or even a games room. While you can call it a *shed* you can also dress it up any way you want and turn it almost into another room. Adding value to your home isn’t just in doing up the house with a new bathroom, if you can create a space outside that is impressive and adds to the value and appeal of your home.

A *shed* for whatever purpose you are having one installed can be up and ready for use in as little as 24 hours, and unlike a Granny Flat, you don’t need council permission to erect a garden shed on your property.

You get to keep your treasures and have a less cluttered home. It’s inconvenient when you realise you need something, but it’s in a self-storage facility miles away. By putting a nice storage shed in your backyard you’ll be able to keep all those treasures close by, and you won’t have to live through the stress or anxiety of needing something *now* you’ve got to get into your car to go and get. You reduce clutter, no more *I might need that* and keeping it in the house – when you need something it’s a few feet away in the backyard.

Advantages of Having a Storage Shed

If you are moving or re-designing your backyard storage sheds can be moved, or if you are moving you can opt to leave it behind included in the sale/value of the property.

A storage shed is a great investment – you are saving on self-storage fees, you have everything close at hand and you add value to your home. Over time you save yourself money and your storage shed *pays for itself*.

Buying your own storage shed from Col Western Shed is a great investment, save yourself time and money and have peace of mind of knowing all your treasured belongings are always close by.

  • I just want to advise you of the terrific service one of your shed builders provided to us when last week he built the shed we ordered through your Penrith office. Dave and his young helper provided first class workmanship, he was very polite, and the clean up was a pleasure compared to most other tradesmen. We are soon going to order a further shed via Penrith and I have no hesitation in recommending your products. Thank you Dave, and thank you to Col Western Sheds.

  • Thank you to all at Col Western Sheds for your excellent service. From the time I made a weekend telephone enquiry, place a telephone order for a shed early the following week, received by email a diagram and quote, received advice of expected delivery time and took delivery at exactly the promised time from friendly helpful delivery men, I received outstanding service
