Do you do offer free estimates for people?
We will gladly write a FREE proposal for you to review that is tailored to any add-ons that you are interested in. You can even get several different proposals so you can compare building styles. To get your estimate, give us a call or fill out our free quote form online.
How long are the estimates valid for?
Most proposals (estimates) are valid for 30 days. But due to the sometimes volatile commodities market some special order items (metal roof, vinyl siding, etc.) may be subject to change pending any unforeseen market changes. If you are still considering a proposal past the 30 days, please call for a current price.
Do you offer any financing options?
Yes, we offer Rent to Own through BLI Rentals LLC, and 100% Financing O.A.C through RTO National.
What type of payments do you accept?
We accept Cash, Check, Visa & MasterCard.(Note 3% finance charge applies to all Credit Card purchases.)
Do you rent the buildings or offer lease-to-own options?
Yes we offer Rent-to-Own through BLI Rentals. The rental agreement includes low monthly payments (up to 60 months), or 90 days same as cash price!
I live in Washington State, do I have to pay sales tax?
Unfortunately, yes. Our buildings are classified as detached free-standing sheds and labeled as “personal property.” This requires sales tax to be collected on the total amount (including any delivery fees).
However, you can buy a building from any of our display lots in Oregon and arrange delivery yourself (if you think it’s worth it – most people don’t). Or, you can buy a kit and come pick it up yourself and will be exempt from sales tax. There are some businesses that may be exempt if they carry a tax exempt license.
Do you offer any discounts?
We do occasionally offer promotional discounts (usually at Home and Garden Shows, coupons in newspapers, special advertisements, winter specials, tear-out coupons in the phone books, etc.)
The following are some of the discount questions we get:
- Multiple Building Discount – Yes, if more than 1 building is purchased at the same time.
- Senior Citizen Discount – No, (but we do respect you though and treat you like a king or queen!)
- Cash Discount – Cash or Check is the best value! 3% credit card purchase will be charged on all credit card purchases. We advertize the cash price.
- Off Season Discount – Sometimes (that’s when we usually build our stock buildings to replenish the ones that sold during the busy season) — but it still doesn’t hurt to ask!
- Contractor Discount – Usually, it depends on the situation. Call for details.
- Church Discount – Usually, it depends on the situation. Call for details.
Do you require a down payment on orders?
As most orders are considered custom buildings, your deposit assures us that you are committed to this purchase and helps defray our material cost should you back out unexpectedly at the last minute or default. This usually is a 50% down payment. Down payments are not required on already built stock buildings.
How long does it take to build a building?
That’s a trick question! – but a lot of people ask that question. It usually takes us only a few days to build the building. So the correct question would be “What is the lead time if I place an order for a storage shed?” This depends on the time of the year and our present work load schedule. Usually the lead time is only a few weeks or so.
During the busier summer months, there may be an additional backlog depending on the number of orders placed. If there is a certain date you need your building delivered by, please let us know at the time of purchase and we will do our best to ensure that it is delivered by that time!
If you need a rush order thrown in at the last minute, we’ll try our best to accommodate you. (i.e., your cheap metal building that your spouse warned you not to buy in the first place finally blew apart in the middle of a winter storm).
That’s why we keep stock buildings handy, in case someone needs one sooner. However, sometimes there may be other factors which may delay construction (such as purchasing a metal roof, vinyl siding, garage doors, windows, etc., or awaiting approval of a special building permit, if required.)
