At what point do you justify moving into a shop? Over the last few years I have accumulated numerous trailers,trucks & pieces of equipment that no longer could be stored at my house. For the last 2 years I have rented space at a local storage facility. To be exact I rent out 2 large gravel parking spaces and one small gravel parking space and 2 indoor climate controlled buildings (10X10). My bill is nearing $300 per month and a decent shop in our area of over 2K square feet is going for between 800-1500 per month. I need a spot where I can park all the trucks, equipment ect... in a safe spot and dump numerous loads of leaf mulch and clippings every week. Storage units just dont cater to my needs very well at all but at what is the breaking point that made you jump out and get a shop?? I see several guys at the storage place that I rent at run multiple cutting crews just out of the storage lots. Then again I have seen companies that have 1 lawn crew and have a good sized shop. Also for those of you who have shops...do you rent, own or lease? Whats the pros & cons? I can see renting I might not be able to dump my leaves from fall...owning I would have to find a nice size of land and throw a shop on it with extra costs and a large loan hanging over my shoulders...any insite?
