Sounds like a figment of someone's deranged imagination, doesn't it? A ten by fourteen, four-hundred-pound building is hardly portable unless you're some sort of super powerlifter. In fact, you're now thinking, didn't you just see shed moving as an event in one of those crazy strongmen competitions? Not to mention that any assembly process that involves building a foundation could hardly be called instant. But, hard to believe as it might be, there are such things as portable instant sheds.
So What Exactly Are These Things?
Dreaming of a shed that folds up into a suitcase with push of a button or magic pellet that, when exposed to the appropriate amount of water, turns into the latest in outdoor storage? Now who's the one with the overactive imagination? Portable instant sheds, though sadly not button-activated, are designed to be easily put up and taken down as needed, usually with just a few standard tools. Some of them are house-like and resemble more traditional outdoor structures, while others feature unique shapes geared towards more specific purposes.
Since these instant sheds can be put up and collapsed at will, they're well suited to temporary jobsite and seasonal outdoor storage. But that doesn't mean that you can't use them like you would a more permanent structure. They can be used for anything from general storage to protecting oversized equipment and vehicles. Some of the larger models also provide great temporary shelter for livestock.
Permanent vs. Portable
How do you know if a portable shed is right for you? Well, consider what you're going to be using your outdoor shelter for. Is it going to be storing items all year long? Will the items you'll be storing need to move regularly? If you answered yes to either of those questions one of these instant storage structures might be the best option for you. It's also a good idea to think about whether there would be times where a permanent building might be in the way.
Does a portable shelter sound like what you're looking for? Then the next step is selecting the model that works best for you. Fortunately, these sheds come in the same size and price ranges as more traditional ones. No matter how specific your requirements, chances are good that you'll be able to find one that meets all of your needs.
