With the upcoming storms in both Ontario and the east coast forecasted, we wanted to remind everyone: it’s okay, and even preferred that the buildings have some snow around them.
This prevents the wind from getting under them and it also means that the height above the ground is less. This significantly decreases the aerodynamic lift.
As we’ve stated in our winter care articles and in the installation guide, there are things you can do to prepare your building to withstand the storms as best as possible. Taking extra steps during the ‘worst case scenario’ situations can often make all the difference and help your building stay standing.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about any of these situations. Good luck and stay warm!

Multi Shelters offers a variety of shipping options to save our customers money on their buildings. We have now shipped structures to all 10 Canadian provinces, as well as the Yukon and 10 States, including Maine, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Nevada, Connecticut, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.
First and foremost, we offer shipping with our truck wherever possible. We still have enough deliveries to make to the east coast of Canada that we can save you even more money with our Multi Shelter Solutions truck!
We also have a new shipping crate that makes longer distance shipping with Manitoulin Transport more cost effective. Shipping longer distances with our new shipping crate certainly has added possibilities while maintaining quality, convenience and economy.
An added dimension is the rail service that Manitoulin Transport offers to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. By going via rail to Winnipeg and then road to Saskatoon, a recent customer is saving $400 on his freight bill.
Did you know that in many cases the difference in the exchange rate between Canada and the U.S. pretty well covers the freight? In most cases for the north eastern U.S. the currency exchange is about equal to the freight. We are now looking into using our truck to deliver to some of the North East United States as well to save our customers even more!
Still made and manufactured in Palmerston, ON. Call today to find out more!
