Built to Move: Affordable Portable Buildings for Your Storage Needs


In Texas, where hobbies like gardening, outdoor sports, and festive celebrations are part of the fabric of life, managing your space and your belongings efficiently is crucial. For Texans with a passion for outdoor activities or a home buzzing with family, a storage shed isn't just a luxury; it's a necessity. If you, like many others before you, are under the impression that a shed is a static, immovable structure, think again. Our portable buildings are here to revolutionize the way you think about storage, offering valuable flexibility and convenience that moves with you.

What is a Portable Storage Shed?

A portable shed isn't anchored like your home, and it doesn't demand a traditional, permanent foundation. Instead, it finds its footing on alternatives like gravel pads, concrete slabs, or even just solid blocks. When we say portable, we're talking about a structure that can be easily relocated, often with nothing more than a trailer and a bit of know-how. These sheds are customizable in size and function, tailored to fit whatever role you need them to play. 

For this reason, these sheds make a great addition to nearly any lifestyle. Do you find yourself and your family moving often? No problem! Portable sheds are just that — portable. Do you plan to stay on your current property for the long haul? Great! Your storage shed is built to last and, more importantly, to withstand the harsh Texas elements for years to come. 

Why Choose Portable Buildings: The Texas Homeowner’s Guide

If you’re considering a portable shed, you’re likely also comparing it to the more traditional storage options such as a storage unit in a facility setting or a pod-based storage service. What is it that separates a portable backyard storage shed from these other alternatives? When it comes down to it, you’ll notice the biggest differences in flexibility, cost, reliability, convenience, and aesthetics, to name a few. While traditional storage options might seem simpler and maybe cheaper, you’ll likely find that a backyard storage shed is less expensive and provides significantly more value for your family. 

  • Flexibility for Future Moves: Whether you’re a renter, a homeowner with an eye on the horizon, or simply someone who likes to keep their options open, a portable shed is a smart choice. Its mobility means it’s always ready for your next adventure. Whereas traditional storage options may have you second-guessing your choice of location, with a portable shed, you’re free to go wherever you like and your trusty storage shed can come along with you. 

  • Budget-friendly Options: If you're watching the wallet, a portable shed can be a cost-effective solution. You can forego expensive foundations for more economical choices, ensuring your budget stretches as far as your space does. Particularly if you’re considering a longer-term storage investment, a storage shed offers one great price rather than an indefinite payment like at a storage facility where you’re faced with monthly fees and service charges. 

    Let’s say a storage unit costs roughly $100 per month. This can increase over time, and if you need a larger space, this number will increase. For the sake of comparison, though, we’ll say $100 per month. If you need the storage space for 3 years, you’re looking at a total cost of $3,600. Then, that number will continue to grow as time goes on. The pitfall with a storage unit is that you’re not paying anything off, and rather you’re responsible for the monthly bill as long as you’re using the storage unit. After 5 years? You’ve spent a whopping $6,000 for that same space. 
    With a backyard shed, however, your payments are contributing toward a set total cost. Let’s say a total cost of $3,200. So, if you worked out a payment plan of that same $100 per month as you would have spent on a storage unit, you’re effectively paid off in about 3 years, depending on your interest rate, if applicable. Better yet, if you can pay that full $3,200 up front, you now own a permanent storage solution with no ongoing payment or fees at all. For the savvy storage connoisseur, it’s a no-brainer!

  • Speedy and Reliable Storage: One of the standout perks of a portable storage building is its prefab nature. This means a faster turnaround time from purchase to use, perfect for when you need reliable storage in a pinch.

  • Unbeatable Convenience: There is a lot to be said for storage within just a few steps of your back door. With a portable storage shed, you can rest easy knowing that your belongings are safe and within arm’s reach if you should need access to them. Better yet, you don’t have to be overly concerned about security measures when you can likely see your shed from windows in your own home! 

  • Aesthetic: If you’ve ever looked into adding a portable storage building to your property, you’ve likely faced some of the less attractive options — plastic sheds, unfinished-looking sheds, unflattering colorways, you name it. There are certainly less appealing backyard sheds out there, but we’re proud to bring beautifully constructed and aesthetically pleasing sheds to our customers. Whether you’re looking to make a statement in your yard or are looking for a shed that compliments your home’s existing style and/or color palette, a quality storage shed can add beauty to your backyard like you’ve never seen before. 

From Gardening to Holidays: Creative Ways to Use Your Shed

Think a portable shed is just for storing old boxes and forgotten tools? Think again!

The best part is that no matter how you choose to use your backyard shed, you never have to leave it behind. The beauty of a portable storage shed is that it is built to go wherever you need it. Don’t stress about investing in a shed that would otherwise be left if you ever needed to move away. Your new hobby space can come too!

 Whether you’re an avid gardener or a home decor hobbyist, a portable backyard storage shed may be just what you’ve been looking for: 

  • Gardening Galore: If you've got a green thumb, a portable shed is like a treasure trove. It's a one-stop shop for all your gardening gear, from spades to shears, making it easier to jump right into your gardening without the usual prelude of searching for tools.

  • Pool and Hot Tub Upkeep: Pools and hot tubs come with their own set of maintenance needs, and a portable shed can be the perfect place to keep all those necessary tools and chemicals, organized and out of the way. Particularly for families with kids or pets, it’s critical to keep maintenance supplies out of reach for safety reasons, and a portable shed offers an easy way to lock away potentially dangerous chemicals and equipment.

  • Vehicle and Equipment Storage: From your trusty lawnmower to that adventure-ready ATV, a portable shed ensures that your equipment is safely stored and protected from the elements.

  • Holiday Decor Haven: For those who go all out during the holidays, a portable shed offers an ideal solution to store your festive arsenal. Color-coding your storage bins can turn the usually dreaded post-holiday clean-up into a breeze.
