Do Steel Buildings Make Good Gifts?
It’s that time of year again! Time to start shopping for the holidays. And you probably have a person in your life that’s incredibly difficult to shop for. It doesn’t matter why: Maybe they already have everything they need, don’t put much stock into material things, or have champagne tastes that don’t quite fit your beer budget … regardless, you’re left racking your brain.
Then it hits you — they’ve been talking a lot about growing their business … or needing additional storage for their tools and equipment … or wanting to work on another hobby vehicle, if only they had somewhere to put it.
So you start asking yourself … would a steel building make a good gift?
You know how easy and fun it is to design a Worldwide Steel building, you’ve seen how quick and painless the construction process is, and you’ve seen some of the amazing projects customers have built with our steel building kits.
But a building is still an investment, so you want to make sure you’re really thinking things through.
Do steel buildings make good gifts?
Yes! A steel building kit can make a fantastic gift, if you go about it the right way.
A steel building can make a great gift because it can make a big day-to-day difference in your loved one’s life, last for decades, and in some cases (like when used for a small business) even make money in the long run.
And when you’re looking to give the highest quality metal building on the market, you’re looking at Worldwide Steel. Here are just a few reasons why:
- We’re a manufacturer, not a broker. All Worldwide Steel buildings are built in-house in the Midwest, USA.
- We custom-craft your structure to local wind and snow load requirements, to ensure it always stands up to the elements.
- Our precision-engineered trusses bolt together so easily you won’t need to rent heavy machinery to erect your building.
- Our steel components are pre-welded and precision-aligned for a perfect fit the first time.
- Our wide variety of building components, accessories and features make Worldwide Steel buildings almost endlessly customizable.
Because Worldwide Steel building kits are so customizable, however, we’d say they don’t always make very good surprise gifts. This isn’t the type of gift you’d want to slap a bow on and present to your loved one completely out of the blue.
Worldwide Steel buildings are affordable, with 50-year structural warranties and financing options. But like any structure, they’re still an investment. That’s why it’s a good idea to involve the recipient in the details.
Unless you’re 100% sure you know exactly what they’re looking for, we don’t recommend secretly making all the design, dimensions and finish decisions on your own and surprising them on delivery day. But don’t get discouraged! There are still ways to make giving a steel building as a gift fun and exciting for both the giver and the recipient.
Here’s an idea: Get in touch with the Worldwide Steel team today and start letting them know what you’re planning. Guarantee they’ll be just as thrilled as you are to bring your plan to life. They can walk you through your options, start talking about pricing so you know what to expect, and send you some beautiful brochures about our products.
While you’re waiting for all that to come together, sit down with your gift recipient and show them how cool our online 3D building designer is! You can chat through all the cool options and elements, learn a bit more about which components they’d include in their dream building, and even start getting a feel for what colors and finishes they want. They don’t need to know you’re actually scheming to make that design a reality. Then, you can get back in touch with your Worldwide Steel consultant and pass along the intel. By the time you’re ready to surprise your loved one with your plan to give them a steel building kit, all the research will be done and you’ll just have the details to confirm and finalize.
