Small storage building

I have been looking at getting a small building to store some equipment in. I was looking at the arrow brand buildings. The 10x14 lexington. Are there any other companies that make ones a little bigger that don't cost 3 times as much

You will just have to check around for what is available in your area. Where I am there are several regional companies that supply storage buildings in a variety of sizes. Most are limited by width so they can be transported down the road. Once you get above about 10' wide the special permitting and transportation regulations make a pre-fabricated shed uneconomical so larger ones are often stick built on site.

Since it was mentioned, I just had a 16 wide delivered about 2 weeks ago. They had escorts & did need permits. However, the company that builds them here charges $100 for delivery & setup, no matter size or if permits are needed. So, in my specific situation, It was $100 to deliver & setup.
I agree that most probably, some dealers charge according to delivery costs, but just ask.

I also agree that we have 2 or 3 places within our area that build "portable" buildings... various prices & quality. As PD mentioned, just look around in you area.
The place we bought had 5 styles, basic, intermediate & best type buildings. They also sell barns & shops in their portable building lines.
In addition to the 5 styles, they also offered many options with every style. So the options are much more than just "how good are their buildings?" You choose how ell of how cheap you want it built to fit your budget. Just check around & go in & talk with them.

I have checked the pre built ones and the cheapest they go for the smallest of them is about 2000. I am ok with building it some but I am by no means a carpenter. I like the metal kit ones. I have seen some bigger ones but they never list prices online and I'm not about to give 15 different companies my email

Check Home Depot, Lowes & some of those big box stores. They sell those metal sheds that you can just put together. If you're not that handy, they will send a contractor out to put it together & level it for you.... for a fee, obviously. But then you at least have some sort of recourse it something isn't right within a period of time, like leaks, falls down, door wont open, etc.
