Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of building on site?

If you would like your building located in an area that is inaccessible by a mule or your building is too large to be hauled by a trailer, building on site might be an option for you! Contact us for more information.

Can you build the unit in my backyard?

Sure thing! We offer on-site builds. The on-site build option is subject to additional fees dependent on the distance from the dealer sales lot and building purchased.

Do your buildings come with electricity?

Electric packages are offered in select locations and are not standard.

How long until I receive my building?

If a building is purchased from a sales lot and already built, the delivery average is 5-10 business days after purchase. If the building is a custom build coming from one of our manufacturing shops, the delivery average is 6-8 weeks to encompass the time it takes to build the product.

Are Stor-Mor buildings HOA Compliant?

While all of our buildings meet, and in some cases exceed, state codes, we ask that you give us a call to discuss your HOA's specific regulations to ensure compliancy.

How much do Stor-Mor buildings cost?

We offer a variety of building styles and sizes, along with the option to customize these buildings with additional features. Pricing will vary based on the features and the state in which it will be delivered because of regulations, hauling restrictions, and material cost. Please contact your personal Stor-Mor representative for pricing details.

Do I need to have permits or other paperwork?

It is up to the customer to get the required permits prior to placing an order. Please check with your state, county, city, and HOA for regulations or permit requirements for portable buildings. You should be aware of any setbacks and right of ways on the property. If we have to move a building for any reason, the customer will incur charges.

What kinds of maintenance will be required on my building?

No maintenance is required. We do recommend that you apply a stain to your treated building within 6 months to 1 year of receiving it.

Do you build or supply ramps for your buildings?

Yes, we sell ramps for our buildings: 4’ ramp for single-door 8’ wide buildings, 6’ ramp for double-door 10’ or 12’ wide buildings.

Will the installer remove and replace obstacles such as step railings, fence posts, basketball goals, etc., to facilitate the placement of the building on a customer’s property?

No. Any necessary removal and/or replacement of obstacles on the site is the sole responsibility of the homeowner.

Can a building be installed in an area where it is not possible for the truck and trailer combination to get close to the site?

Yes, with advance notice, the installer can unload the building from the trailer and maneuver it onto the site with some specialized equipment. The installer will discuss your specific needs when the delivery is scheduled.

How much vertical clearance does the installer need to get the gooseneck trailer and the building onto my property?

The trailers are about 30 inches in height. The buildings range in height from the short wall utility buildings (102 inches) to the lofted barn with 3 inches of optional, additional height (139 inches). Depending on the model the customer chooses, the installer would need a minimum clearance of between 11.5 feet to 15 feet.

How much side to side clearance does the installer need to move the building onto my property?

There must be at least one foot of side clearance during transport, and the building must be at least three feet from any other structures or the property line. In other words, if you choose a 10-foot-wide building, we will require 12 feet of clearance to get it to the site and 16 feet of clearance in order to place the building on the ground.

Will you obtain the necessary permits for a specific location?

We do not obtain building permits, conduct covenant searches or research deed and homeowner association restrictions. All local code or building inspection requirements are the sole responsibility of the homeowner.

Will you remove any unwanted building from my property?

No. The installers are not equipped to remove or haul old buildings or other debris of any type.

Can a building be moved once it has been installed?

Yes. Cost will be determined on a case by case basis. You will need to contact the transportation department and give them the exact location of the new address.

Do you deliver?

Yes! We have free delivery up to 50 miles from the dealer lot.

What are the standard door widths?

Standard single door clearance on a wood building is 46”, and double door clearance is a true 70”. On metal buildings, the single door clearance is 48”, and the double door clearance is a true 72”.

Can I choose siding or roofing colors besides the colors offered in your brochures?

Custom color options are available. Please contact us for more details.

What is included in installation?

Installation includes placing and leveling the building on site. We do not remove obstacles or provide ground leveling services. The buildings are leveled to the terrain with treated wood blocks (ground contact rated). If you prefer, you can supply 4″ x 8″ x 16″ solid concrete blocks (1 block for every 4 perimeter feet) to use in place of the treated wood blocks. These must be on site at the time of the installation. Drivers may charge extra for extremely difficult deliveries.

What type of building foundation is required?

A reasonably flat (as opposed to level) area is required – we will level the building to the existing terrain. The building does not need any additional foundation work such as gravel or concrete. We can certainly place the building on these foundations. However, they are not required for installation.

Can you construct a building on site?

Our buildings can be built on site! On-site build quotes are dependent upon where the build will take place, the building type, and size. We also require a larger up-front payment. Please contact us for a quote.
