Best Large Vertical Storage Sheds

Alrighty! Tom here again with a rather detailed look at a great selection of large vertical storage sheds. If you aren’t too sure what that means, let me explain. A vertical storage shed is typically the smallest of the outdoor storage sheds manufactured. As a result, they take up less space but provide excellent storage in a vertical space.

Think an apartment building of several stories as opposed to a rancher-style home and you may get a visual to help you understand the main design of a vertical storage shed. These are great for stashing away a lot of tall tools and some are perfect for shelving to give you even more storage space. Here’s a look at the 10 Best Rated Vertical Storage Sheds (in my opinion).

Overview Of The Top 10 Large Vertical Storage Sheds

1. Suncast BMS1500 Vertical Utility Shed

2.2W x 2.7D x 5.9H ft (20 cu ft)

The Suncast BMS1500 is a pretty nifty looking storage shed in that it has a wood grain texture making it look as if it is made of something other than the double-wall resin that it really is made of. What I like most about the double-wall resin construction is that it is durable. The floor of this unit is reinforced so you can store some pretty heavy items inside without fear of damaging the shed.

The doors are robust – a word I rarely use – with easy grip handles that can accommodate padlocks for security. There is shelf supports on the inside for a total of 4 shelves but you have to supply the wood yourself. Which, as far as I’m concerned, is a small price to pay to own one the top quality garden sheds available today.

Suncast BMS1500 Vertical Utility Shed, 20 cubit ft

Storage Shed Highlights:

  • Supports all ready to go for 4 wooden shelves, giving you 4 equal storage spaces for all those smaller items
  • Reinforced floor for your heavier items and great wood texture to blend in with your house/garden decor
  • Durable and rot resistant Resin construction with lockable doors

2. Rubbermaid Plastic Small Vertical Storage Shed

2.1W x 2.5D x 6H ft (17 cu ft)

Pop Quiz! What’s Olive/Sandstone in colour and has 17 cubic feet of storage space? If you guessed anything other than a vertical storage shed, what are you doing here? This Rubbermaid model has a double-wall construction making it really strong. Plus, it is leak-resistant, dent-resistant, weather-resistant and I wish my shirt was wrinkle-resistant which makes this shed built to last. The storage capacity means long-handled tools and small outdoor items can fit inside with ease.

The heavy-duty floor happens to be impact-resistant, much more than my vehicle is. In other words, this is a small plastic vertical storage shed that may outlast everything you jam into it. You can add wood shelves, but those are extra and just so you know, some assembly is required.

Storage Shed Highlights:

  • Leak, dent and weather resistant, meaning you won't need to replace this little beauty anytime soon
  • Reinforced floor for your heavier items that won't deteriorate over time
  • Without the shelving this is totally ideal for storing all your long-handled gardening tools like rakes, brooms and ladders

3. Suncast BMS4500 Large Vertical Storage Shed

4.7W x 2.5D x 6.6H ft (52 cu ft)

Here’s another one from Suncast that has that funky wood grain texture, is also double-walled and made from resin. The Suncast BMS4500 Large Vertical Storage Shed doors are big and the handles are easy to grip and can be locked with padlocks to keep your garden tools and other goodies safe.

The floor is reinforced so I can jump up and down for joy when I figure out how to get all my stuff inside of it. Again, there is shelf supports but you need to supply the wood for them – a total of 4 and as I’ve said before, not a big deal. For me, I have wood all over the yard well, not all over it but I have some so it costs me nothing to cut it to fit.

Storage Shed Highlights:

  • Accommodates 4 wooden shelves (you need to supply the wood yourself) giving you a ton of space for all your knick-knacks

4. Suncast BMS1250 Vertical Tool Shed

2.7W x 2.1D x 6H ft (20 cu ft)

Here are the dimensions in inches: 32 W x 24.75 D x 72 H. It doesn’t matter how you add them up, it means that the Suncast BMS1250 vertical storage shed has a 20 cubic foot capacity. What can you do with that? Don’t make me answer that. It’s a storage shed!!!

This particular one is blow molded which sounds sort of high-tech to me and the doors can be locked with a padlock hasp. If you have an abundance of long-handled tools and garden gremlins and other items you’ll be able to get them all into this shed.

5. Keter High Store Vertical Outdoor Storage Shed

4.5W x 2.5D x 6H ft (55 cu ft)

Say you want a vertical shed you can do some tweaking with. You know, paint it a different colour and drill some holes in the walls for extra hanging hooks and shelves and stuff. Well, the Keter Highstore is your shed. It is 54.9 L x 30.3 W x 71.5 H (inches, again) so you can sort of picture what size that is.

The wall panels are thick and rib reinforced for super-duper strength. There are adjustable brackets so you can put two shelves wherever you want and as I mentioned, drill some holes for more and paint it yellow or pink or whatever you want to give it some flair.

6. Suncast BMS5700 Vertical Shed

3W x 1D x 6H ft (54 cu ft)

The Suncast BMS5700 is a pleasing sand-coloured shed that has a total of 54 cubic feet of storage space. It has double doors that have handles that are padlock-ready but you have to supply the padlocks, which I would have expected to have to do anyway.

There’s a reinforced floor which will probably support my mother-in-law and this shed is a snap to assemble. That doesn’t mean it snaps together because it doesn’t. It’s just an expression to indicate it’s quick and easy to do. Oh, and it has built-in supports for wood shelving.

Storage Shed Highlights:

  • Lockable handles with double door opening allows you to easily pack away and retrieve your larger garden equipment

7. Rubbermaid Plastic Large Vertical Outdoor Storage Shed

4.3W x 2.6D x 6.8H ft (52 cu ft)

As one of the best rated resin sheds, the Rubbermaid is truly an amazing vertical storage shed. It is made from really tough double-walled resin and has an impact-resistant floor. Because this is made from a material other than wood or metal, rusting and rotting are out of the picture. You can customize this model with all kinds of extra do-dads from pegboard to racks to shelving.

One important point to make here is that putting this vertical storage shed together is not a one-person job. You are going to need two more buddies. One to help with the assembly and the other to watch over the beer cooler during to assembly phase.

8. Suncast Vertical Utility Shed

2.7W x 2.2D x 5.9H ft (20 cu ft)

The Suncast Resin Vertical Utility Shed is also a double-wall resin storage shed. It comes in sand colour and offers a total of 20 cubic feet of primo storage capacity. The double doors are hefty and have easy grip handles, which come in handy if you happen to be wearing garden gloves or some other hand covering.

The floor is also reinforced and where this specific vertical storage shed wins my favour is in the assembly. It has what the manufacturer calls “easy bolt” assembly which translates to mean, you should be able to put this together with minimal tools and effort.

9. Suncast BMS6500 Blow Molded Large Vertical Outdoor Storage Shed

So, the Suncast BMS6500 is another one of those Blow Molded top quality garden sheds. This one gives you 98 cubic feet of storage and has strong, durable doors with easy grip handles. The double doors open to 47.5 inches wide by 74-inches tall so you should be able to get most anything in your yard, minus your car, inside.

If you were able to squeeze your vehicle into this shed – which you won’t be able to do – the reinforced floor could probably handle the extra weight. It’s a pretty awesome shed, to be honest with you.

10. Rubbermaid Roughneck Medium Vertical Storage Shed

4.6W x 4.3D x 6.4H ft (106 cu ft)

This isn’t called a Roughneck for nothing. It’s massive in that it provides 106 cubic feet of incredible storage space which means you can get a lawn mower, adult bicycles and other non-gardening related things inside and still have room for the stuff you originally wanted to store in this shed.

The double-wall construction and impact-resistant floor give this shed some solid footing and strength. Plus, since it’s not wood and it’s not metal it won’t rot or rust sitting in your yard. You can give it the personal touch with pegboards, shelves and racks but it will take you and your neighbour to put it together.

Hi I'm Tom (aka thatshedguy) and as the name implies I'm a fan of outdoor storage sheds and pretty much anything else related to tools and gardening. I have a wood sculpting hobby that keeps me busy for ages out in my own outdoor shed and I absolutely love having a nice clean functional space to work in.
