With the new year upon us, many are starting to clean up and clear out. If you are looking for extra space to house things like landscaping tools or garage overflow, then a shed is a perfect way to hide it somewhere where it is safe. There are many options when it comes to sheds; they come in many different shapes and sizes. You can also buy them new or used. So, how are you to know what you need and which will suit your needs best? These are factors to decide if you should buy utility sheds for sale that are new or used.
When you buy Used
You Won’t get to Customize
Although it is a shed and in the backyard, that doesn’t mean that it is hidden from sight. If you buy used utility sheds for sale, you’ll get it as is. That means that you can’t customize it to suit your home’s style. If you buy new, you can make it look like an addition to your home, not an afterthought. Sometimes it is better to spend a little extra to increase the equity of your home’s value than to buy an eyesore to save a couple of dollars.
You Won’t get a Warranty
When you buy used, you get what you pay for, and in this instance, that means someone else has used it. A good shed is meant to protect your stuff from outdoor elements, but there is no way to guarantee that your used shed doesn’t have some things wrong with it. If you buy new and something goes wrong, you have someone to turn to to make things right. If you buy it from someone else, you are working under the “buyer beware,” which can really sting if things go the wrong way.
You Have to Move it
If you buy a used shed, more times than not you are responsible for both moving and reassembling it in some cases. There is nothing less fun than spending your day, or even your week, moving a shed and then rebuilding it where you want in the backyard. Buying new might cost a little more, but then you have the luxury of someone delivering it and setting it up. That means you have safety knowing that it won’t be damaged in transit and that someone will be putting it together professionally for you.
You Can’t Finance it
Depending on how much you have to spend, when you buy used, it isn’t as if the person will take installments for payment. Purchasing a new shed might cost more, but if you find a company that will finance the total cost, you can pay it off monthly. For many people that means just a little bit, and to get something new over used, it is well worth it to go for fresh and new!
If you are ready to take the plunge and purchase a little extra space by investing in a shed, invest wisely. Sometimes when you try to save pennies, we end up spending dollars. A new shed will come with a guarantee, delivery, installation and sometimes financing, so what are you waiting for?
