THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR MACHINERY SHEDS
Make the smart choice for your property. Choose a SmartShelters machinery shed.
Agricultural and industrial equipment is generally a New Zealand business owner’s most valuable asset, both in terms of cost and the potential to generate revenue. It makes sense then that this equipment is given a good home – one that offers complete protection, lasts as long as the machinery inside, and does all that without costing the earth.
Open vs. closed bay
Your choice of an open or closed bay machinery shed will depend on a couple of factors. Ask yourself:
- What level of protection does my machinery need? (Closed bay sheds will offer the best protection)
- Is the extra protection worth the small drop in efficiency? (You’ll be opening and closing the bays every time you need to use the machinery)
- What is my budget? (closed bay sheds will be slightly more expensive)
Still struggling to choose? A hybrid shed may be worth considering, as it allows you to better protect your most important assets while granting easy access to the rest.

Machinery shed size
The size of your machinery shed will usually be guided by the size of your machinery. Their clever lightweight construction means that SmartShelters machinery sheds can be built to almost any width, depth and height; spans can reach up to 35m, while the height is only limited by the amount of containers you can safely stack on top of one another.
Machinery shed examples
As mentioned above, machinery sheds can generally be grouped into three categories:
- Open Bay: A shed featuring three enclosed sides and an open face.
- Closed Bay: A shed featuring three enclosed sides and one closable face..
- Hybrid: A shed with three enclosed sides and any combination of open and closable sections on the final face.
Machinery shed cost
As they are generally bespoke constructions, machinery sheds vary in price. The factors that will influence the cost of a structure can include:
- The strength and quality of the shed.
- The span, depth, height and overall square metreage.
- Whether it’s pole- or container-mounted
