Why NOT to choose a Rent-A-Shed Option

Many of the Sheds Unlimited competitors offer a Rent-to-Own Shed and Garage Option. Find out here why we have discontinued this feature beginning in May of 2015. While Renting a Storage Shed in PA may seem to be a good option when you look at the low monthly payments, before you choose this option with one of our competitors consider the following: (Our competitors who offer RTO will not tell you these secrets!).


  • RTO will cost you up to 65 percent more in three years
  • While RTO suppliers do not charge interest, their rental rates are VERY HIGH!
  • To buy from Sheds Unlimited, we allow you to pay your shed in two payments. One upon ordering and the final payment upon delivery.

Rent to Own Sheds in PA, NY, NJ, DE, MD, VA

1. Rent-to-Own sheds and garages end up costing between 25% and 65% more than if you bought a shed direct from Sheds Unlimited
Why, you might ask, does rent to own cost so much more than buying a shed outright? First of all, when you choose RTO for your storage shed or garage, you are actually then dealing with a Rental Shed company. They simply buy the shed from our competitors and rent it to you at very high interest rates. Well, they do not call it interest, but again, you will pay substantially more for a rental shed than if you purchase from Sheds Unlimited.

2. If at any time you stop paying the rental fees, your building will be taken from you
Again, while the monthly cost for a rent-to-own shed may seem low, what happens if you lose your job in the middle of your contract? Or what if some tragedy happens and you cannot afford to make the montly payments? Remember, the rental shed or garage remains the property of the rental company until you make the final rent payment. You may end up paying more for the rent of a shed in two years than the entire shed would have cost you from Sheds Unlimited and still end up with NO SHED AT ALL!

3. When are Rent-to-Own Sheds and Garages a good option for the customer?
There are ONLY two situations in which RTO is good for a customer. First, if you are already paying a monthly rental fee to a storage facility and could then cut that cost out by renting a shed. This would mean no more running to the storage facility and at the end of three years of rental the shed will be yours (But again, it would be much cheaper to buy a shed from Sheds Unlimited dirct). Another time to choose RTO would be if you know you only need storage for a few months. In this case, you can pay the rental fees for several months and then the rental company will come and pick up the shed or garage from your property. But please don’t tell the rental company we gave you this secret!

The bottom line is that at Sheds Unlimited, we want our customers to have a good experience when buying sheds and garages. However, we have found that selling Rent-to-Own Sheds and Garages has created many problems for our customers. The exorbatant fees charged by rental companies came back to bite our customers over and over again and many came back dissapointed.

Our 14 by 24 one car garage was delivered and set up early November. The truck pulled up shortly before 7 am and left by 5 pm after the garage was completed and cleaned inside and out. Two carpenters worked tiredlessly without even a lunchbreak to make sure that everything was complete by the evening. Despite the workpressure the always had a kind word and did not mind to answer our stupid questions. We haven't seen such a work ethics for quite some time. On top of it, the garage looks terrific and matches the style of the house. When asked I will recommend Sheds Unlimited without any reservation - a job very well done!

The quality & craftsmanship of their product can't be beat. Everyone there from the time of purchase to the install was great to work with. The price can't be beat either once you compare the service and the quality of the product. You'll be more than happy with their product! Thanks for a great product guys!

Tim Miller from College Park MD

I could not be happier with our new 2 car garage. What a pleasure to do business with.The instalation crew worked till they got the job done.

Excellent service excellent quality and very professional from start to finish. Had it delivered which they were on time and accommodated our schedule would highly recommend and wouldn't think of going anywhere else

Steve from Clark nj

Purchased custom 8 x 30 shed after seeing one my neighbor bought a few months ago. Had an extra door put in the end and shed came as advertised.
Great job by the delivery guy since it was not an easy placement. That little device they call a MULE is fantastic. As long as your not trying to get a 10 foot shed in a 9 foot space they will get it there. Only question is delivery charges and permit charges. If they are piggybacking my shed with other delivery in the area why am I charged full rate on the delivery and permit. Seems to me they could share the cost. Other than that fair prices and excellent quality on the shed.

Rick williams from Southern NJ

The shed is beautiful. It is a great addition to our property and it was a great price.

Bonnie Haring from Boyertown, PA

Sheds Unlimited installed 3 sheds for our family over the past 4 years in two locations. Our first two sheds were delivered pre-assembled, while our most recent purchase was a build on site. All three sheds turned out great with high quality craftsmanship and friendly reliable delivery/installation. Accordingly, we'll never go anywhere else should we ever need another shed - great job Sheds Unlimited!

Ed & Lauren from Alexandria VA

Our local zoning board had a ton of requirements that resulted in us changing our shed order 3 times. Sheds Unlimited was very flexible and helpful. In the end we love our shed and are happy that we went to Shed's Unlimited to get it. We highly recommend.
