How does your Rent to Own program work?2017-05-03T15:36:08-05:00

Rent-to-own was established as an alternative to mini-warehousing. Our no-strings plan allows you to have your own storage facility for your backyard or business, when and where you need it.


The low monthly rental rates are comparable to mini-warehousing rates per square feet. You are not required to fill out a credit application, nor are you required to keep your building. All that is required is a security deposit and your first month’s rent. Security deposits for 8′ and 10′ wide are $200.00 and $300.00 for 12′ wide. The deposit for 14′ and 16′ wide is $500.00. Payments are based on 36 months, 60% of payment applies towards purchase. Pay off balance anytime – no early payoff penalty.

Can I pay off my RENT TO OWN contract early?2016-02-03T10:37:12-06:00

Yes you can, with no pay off penalty whatsoever.
