Industrial Commercial Shed Uses


There are hundreds of commercial uses for portable sheds, many more than we could list, but here are a few of the most common ones.

Think about what a portable shed or utility building could do to improve your production and your bottom line.

  • Power generator buildings
  • Waste pump station housing
  • Water booster station housing
  • Chemical additive stations
  • Water, gas, and oil well pump stations
  • Central communication rooms
  • Construction office housing
  • Construction tool sheds

Having the ability to protect tools and equipment from nature and theft, or the ability to have an office on site particularly during inclement weather, or a spot to store materials until they are needed can be the cutting edge advantage in today’s competitive market place.

Storage Sheds Who Needs Them?


An alphabetical list of businesses that need storage, or work space and why. Almost everyone in the United States of America could use a little extra space for storing things that are not used as often as others that we might want to keep close at hand in our homes, offices and shops. We decided to make a general list of businesses and trades, and without being too specific we easily compiled this one. It would be easy to get more specific. You could add to the list under general contractors, such trades as plumbers and trim carpenters.

Take a look at the list and see where you might fit in. If you have further suggestions, email them to us for addition. If you look at this list and decide that you need a storage building for your business or home we would be happy to suggest a dealer near you.

Shed Uses | Commercial Sheds Work Sheds


Sheds are not limited to home use. For every backyard use, there is an industrial or commercial use for small sheds as well.
Construction contractors, factories, stores, and even real estate and insurance agencies can use utility buildings for such purposes as:

  • Tool sheds
  • Offices
  • Document storage
  • Break rooms
  • Materials storage
  • Pump houses
  • Drop sheds
  • Crew meeting rooms
  • Aid stations
  • Guard shacks
  • Drop points
  • Storing hazardous materials outside the main building

That is just a few of the ways sheds can be used, and we know you have your own ideas. We know salesmen who use storage sheds to drop off, and pick up sales materials, and have sales materials dropped by the carrier for them to pick up later. Some small businesses use sheds for temporary, or additional display space, or, in some cases, as the store itself.

From snow cone businesses, to construction and heavy industries,  sheds offer real world alternatives for business, commerce, and industry.
