Two Reasons To NOT Buy a Cook Shed

You are probably wondering why we would tell you not to buy our sheds. It’s a fair question. It’s not that we don’t want you to buy our sheds, it’s more that we want you to buy the shed that best fits your needs. Most of the time, we believe we’re the right choice, but we’ll explain the two times that we’re not. 

Storage solutions are what we know. We’ve been building sheds since 1984 and still love our job today! We’ve solved quite a few storage issues since we first began and we’ve helped thousands of customers find room for their stuff.

So, from our experience, here’s what we know: 

  • Everyone wants more storage space. We’ve never heard of anyone walking into a new home and complaining that there’s just too much closet space. 
  • Everyone’s storage needs and financial capabilities are different. No two shed sales are alike, and that’s a good thing! It’s why we offer custom options, even under our rent-to-own program. 

If you are someone who wants more space, then a Cook shed might be the right fit. But, when will you know if it’s not

Here are two reasons to not buy a Cook shed: 

  • Not enough yard space.

Since all of our portable buildings are built in a quality controlled environment and then delivered to our customers’ land, it’s possible you don’t have space for a safe delivery. Our skilled delivery drivers only need about 2 feet of clearance on either side of your chosen shed size. But, if you have a gate or fence, this could be a problem. 

The good news? We offer free site checks. One of our delivery drivers can make a special trip to your property, at no cost, to confirm there is enough space. This saves you time and money. No need in ordering a shed if there’s not a way to safely deliver it! You can read more about our delivery process and needs here. 



  • Not enough money. 

There are just some moments in life when you have to prioritize your budget. Maybe right now isn’t the time to buy for you. That’s OK. But, don’t forget we do offer a rent-to-own program that allows many families to get the storage solution they need at a price they can afford, today. We don’t do credit checks and we only require a small deposit to schedule delivery (delivery is even free!).

Plus, always check your local dealer lot to see what pre-owned sheds are available. They go quickly, but it’s just another, more affordable way to solve your storage problems.
