How To Find Cheap Garden Sheds On Craigslist

There are a number of places online that you can find cheap garden sheds, but one of the best places I have found is Craigslist. Craigslist is the largest classified ads online and the world and even find just about anything you want including garden sheds. In this article I'm going to show you a couple of tips to help you find some dividends that will typically be a lot less expensive than buying one and one of the many home improvement stores.

What Search Terms Are You Using?

When searching for a cheap garden shed you want to keep in mind that not everyone is going to use these exact terms when listing or looking for a shed. For instance, a few examples of some related search terms might be: garden sheds, shed for sale, outdoor shed, backyard shed etc. So when you perform your initial search try typing in the exact phrase "cheap garden sheds" if your search yields very little or no results then try typing in a broader term like "garden shed" or "shed".

Search By Dealer Or By Owner?

There is a number of different ways you can narrow down your search on Craigslist and one of them is something that most people do not even think about. There's a little box at the top of the screen that allows you to narrow down your search by who is selling the item. There are two different options: someone who is selling something privately, by owner and a company or business that is selling that same product, by dealer. So in the beginning, make sure you have both boxes checked so that you are able to see search results from both of these types of sellers.

How About Surrounding Areas …

When people look for things on Craigslist they often stick to their local Craigslist area. I have found that sometimes I will be searching for something in the local results and it will yield nothing, but a few results will show up below my local listing in the surrounding areas of Craigslist ads for similar listings. So do not just look in one particular area, expand your horizons and search as many near Craigslist listings that you can.

Do They Have Sheds In The City?

It probably would not make that much sense to look for something like a shed in a populated area like a major city. This particular item is going to be found in more rural areas because people that live in regions like that are more likely to have one or more sheds on the property. People who live in the city are not as likely to have as much room, so therefore not as many people will have sheds for sale to live in areas like this. So try to think of what kind of area is you're going to find what it is that you are looking for.
