buying a garden/storage shed for the yard

I just bought a house with a small yard, and I am planning to get a garden shed for my yard maintenence and gardening tools. This seems like a basic thing to do, but before I spend $300-500 on a shed (or can I spend less?), what should I know?

Here's what I'm planning to put in it:
1) A shed big enough to squeeze in a bike or two
2) Mower, trimmer, and shovels/tools:
3) Other miscellenaous stuff for the outdoors.
It doesn't need to be huge. Home Depot seems to have some decent sized sheds, but the most basic starts at $499 or so (and includes delivery and installation).
Basic security is fine - just a regular padlock would work.
I would need someone to deliver and set it up - I think building one myself might be a little too much at this point. Also, is there a place where I could be looking for a cheaper (but durable) shed?
