How does your Rent to Own program work?2021-05-16T15:14:42-05:00

Rent to Own

We offer financing plans as low as $150 per month. Own your structure in little as 24 months. You can finance over 24, 36, 48, or 60 month terms.

Rent to own was established as an alternative to mini-warehousing. Our no strings plan allows for you to have your own storage facility for your backyard or business, when and where you need it.  No credit application necessary, nor are you required to keep your building.


Check or money order accepted. We recommend notifying your bank before making a large purchase as some financial institutions will put holds on large out of the ordinary payments. Preemptive notification will help ensure your payment clears and that your order can be processed as quick as possible.

Yes you can, with no pay off penalty whatsoever.
