    We purchased two shipping containers 8'x8'x20'. they cost $1,100 a piece. we keep them at our storage yard wich we rent. we store the equiptment in them and back a truck against each door at night. Their great and worth the money. Some guys we see store their plow blades on top to prevent theft of the blades.

    I cant imagine you poor guys that live on a little residential lot in town and have to rent storage space for your equipment. I live on 28 acres and have my own 40x72 shop for the business.:confused:

    I had a 15' x 19' which cost me $225 a month which included parking my trailer. Gave that up to save money, plus it's easier to work on the equipment at home. Would like to lease or purchase a small office with at leat one overhanging door.
