No, I’ve never done the storage buildings, but I met someone who did. I bought a used one from him once. He had a small, tilt type utility trailer modified with rollers on ramps. He built his units with 5x5 pressure treated skids at the very bottom. As long as he could get the trailer to where the shed needed to be, he could just tilt and roll it off. To pick it up, he would jack it up slighlty in front, back the trailer to the skids and used a winch to roll it back on. In most cases less than 30 minutes to load or unload. Pretty slick really.
He would rent or rent to own, at prices that compared to mini-storage with a little extra for the convenience of having it in the back yard.
A local dealer here hires a wrecker guy with one of those roll off type wreckers to do pick ups and deliveries. They also winch the sheds up onto the truck body. Those truck are quite expensive to buy however.
