Three Tips for Keeping Your Farm Equipment Dry and Rust Free with a Portable Shelter
From covering animals to protecting crops, the needs of a farm vary. But, when it comes to portable shelters, the structure must keep your equipment, hay, and livestock dry and in good condition for at least several months out of the year, if not longer.
For giving your equipment the best level of protection, consider the following tips:
1. Invest in a High-Quality Portable Barn
One of the best ways to keep expensive tractors, haymakers, and other costly and delicate pieces of farm equipment dry and thus free from any sort of rust is to make an investment in a durable and reliable portable shelter. These particular shelters come in a wide array shapes, colors, designs, and price points: There are the engineered Steel Truss Buildings, a 20'Wx48'Lx12'H Round-Style High Tunnel line of buildings, and a 6'Wide x 12'High Peak Style Shelter. These portable storage buildings can be used to house farm equipment, recreational vehicles, or several commercial lawnmowers.
2. Have plants and crops? Consider a Greenhouse
In addition to the line of portable storage buildings, portable building retailers frequently offer impressive lines of greenhouses – another asset on farms. These portable storage buildings can be used for the protective storage of gardens and harvested crops, or they can be used to grow plants, vegetables, or other items. On low end, there is a 6'W x 8'L x 6.5'H Organic Growers Greenhouse, and on the other end of the spectrum, there is the enormous 20'Wx96'Lx12'H Round Style High Tunnel.
The best tip to keep in mind is that shelters are the type of purchase that will last a long time and that they are worth every cent of the farmer's hard earned money.
3. Go Versatile
When considering whether or not a famer or avid gardener should purchase a storage building, one of the last elements to keep in mind is that enclosed storage buildings are multi-purpose structures. Aside from being used to winterize vehicles or to protect farm equipment from harsh rain, they can also be used as short term shelters for horses that might need some shade or they can be used to temporarily store recently-harvested fruits and vegetables.
