How to Find Cheap Garden Sheds on Craigslist

There are several places online where you can find cheap garden sheds, but one of the best places I have found is Craigslist. Craigslist has the largest classifieds online and in the world and even finds just about anything you want, including garden sheds. In this article, I’ll show you a couple of tips to help you find some sheds that will generally be much less expensive than buying one and one from the many home improvement stores.

What search terms are you using?

When looking for a cheap garden shed, you should be aware that not everyone will use these exact terms when listing or searching for a shed. For example, some examples of some related search terms could be: garden sheds, shed for sale, outdoor shed, backyard shed, etc. So when you do your initial search, try typing the exact phrase “cheap garden sheds” if your search returns very few or no results, then try typing a broader term like “garden shed” or “shed.”

Search by dealer or by owner?

There are a number of different ways you can narrow your Craigslist search and one of them is something most people don’t even think about. There is a small box at the top of the screen that allows you to narrow your search by who sells the item. There are two different options: someone who sells something privately, by owner, and a company or business that sells that same product, by distributor. So at first, make sure you have both boxes checked so that you can see search results from both types of sellers.

What about the surrounding areas …

When people search for things on Craigslist, they often stick to their local Craigslist area. I found that sometimes I will search for something in the local results and it won’t return anything, but some results will appear below my local listing in the surrounding Craigslist ad areas for similar listings. So don’t just search a particular area, expand your horizons and look for as many nearby Craigslist listings as you can.

Do you have sheds in the city?

It probably wouldn’t make much sense to search for something like a shed in a populated area like a major city. This particular item will be found in more rural areas because people who live in regions like that are more likely to have one or more sheds on the property. People who live in the city are unlikely to have that much space, so not many people will have sheds for sale to live in areas like this. So try to think in what kind of area you are going to find what you are looking for.
