Why People Buy Our Backyard Storage Shed

Our backyard sheds offer the best value for the best price.

There are many benefits to having a backyard storage shed. Backyard storage sheds offer extra storage space for home and outdoor items, keeping them safe, protected, and secure. Backyard storage sheds can be a solution to house clutter, a preserver of rust-vulnerable bicycles, lawnmowers, tools, and equipment, and a lock-and-key protector of motorized valuables like motorcycles and ATVs. Simply put, a backyard storage shed stores and protects items that would otherwise be in the way, unprotected, or vulnerable.

It's true that you can go to almost any home improvement store to buy a backyard shed. The bottom line is that you can spend hours researching to find the right shed for your needs. Or you could look for shed packages intended to meet specific needs. 

If you're looking for a backyard storage shed and you live in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, western Wisconsin, northeast Nebraska, or north-central Iowa, we can offer you the best value for the price — our backyard storage shed is your solution


Customize Your Backyard Shed

Discover the top three reasons why customers have chosen to buy our Backyard Shed over other options.

Reason #1 Longevity

We understand that you want the best building for your money — and we do everything in our power to deliver that. When you buy from us, you never need to worry about low-quality material, poor construction, or cut corners. We always use quality materials and construct each building with care. Before any building leaves our shop, we inspect it thoroughly. Our inspectors work from a quality assurance checklist to ensure no component or detail is overlooked. You can trust that each building we manufacture meets our high-quality standards and is worth every invested dollar, giving you a backyard storage shed that’s guaranteed to last a long time.

Reason #2 Value

We believe our customers deserve the most value for their dollar. That's why we build the highest-quality backyard storage sheds possible then sell them directly to customers without the additional cost of middlemen. Selling directly to you ensures quality, fair prices, and a personal experience. Plus, you get a backyard storage shed backed by our guarantee — one of the best in the industry. 

Reason #3 Affordability

Our goal is to help you get the perfect storage shed in the quickest and easiest way possible. Even though our factory direct model allows us to sell high-quality buildings at an affordable price, we also offer three payment options.

Reason #3 Affordability

  1. Buy Outright: If you want to own your backyard shed immediately and not increase your debt, this is the way to go. There are many advantages to buying a Dakota Storage Building outright. The freedom to own and modify your building in whatever manner you choose is just one. When purchasing outright, a deposit of 25% is required at the time of order, and the balance is due upon delivery.
  2. Finance: Buy today and pay over time with the Wells Fargo Outdoor Solutions credit card, issued with approved credit by Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. With approved credit, you’ll enjoy convenient monthly payments and easy online account management. By taking advantage of this financing option, you won’t use up your existing funding sources, like a home equity line of credit or bank accounts. Available in SD, ND, MN, NE, & IA.
  3. Rent-To-Own: Rent-to-Own offers an affordable monthly payment plan. If you want to buy your building during the rental period, simply pay 60% of the remaining balance. Rent-to-Own is not available in MN.

Reason #4 Customer Service

People who shop with us are delighted by their storage building buying experience. From selection to delivery, we take pride in helping our customers through the entire process and making sure that our team delivers above-and-beyond customer service.
