Lease To Own

Lease-to-own

Unique Advantages

Lease-to-own has unique advantages compared to other types of payment options. We’ll look at some of its benefits and give you an overview of how it works.

Who It's For

Lease-to-own is a great option for customers who don’t want to use their credit when purchasing a building. Whether you’re saving your credit for other purchases like a car or a house, or you’re in the process of rebuilding your credit, this payment system doesn’t affect your credit score. It’s also great for individuals and small businesses who want to pay only a down payment initially, so they can keep more cash in savings.

Which products can be purchased with lease-to-own

Note that lease-to-own is only available for our shed and playhouse line of products. Finished cabins, site-built garages, and outdoor living products are not included in our lease-to-buy program. Certain restrictions apply to the total amount of purchase.

Benefits of
Lease-to-own

No Credit
Required

Save your credit for other purchases. No credit is required in this lease-to-own program.

3 and 5 year
options

Choose between our convenient 3 and 5 year payoff options. Note that you can always pay off your building early, if you prefer to do so.

Early Payoff
Discount

You can pay it off early with no early payoff penalties. In fact if you pay it off early, you get a discount off the remaining total contract balance.

Loss Damage
Waiver

Your building can very conveniently be added to your homeowner’s insurance or you can purchase a Loss Damage Waiver from us protecting the structure against Acts of God.

Easy
Ownership

In most regions, your down payment is less than 10%, making it easy to buy your dream shed right away.

Convenient Backyard Storage

Backyard storage in your own storage shed is far more convenient than making a special trip to an off-site storage unit. Also, once your building is paid off, it’s completely yours. No more monthly storage fees!

What lease-to-own is not

Lease-to-Own is Not a Loan

You’re not locked into the contract at any point, which means you can return the unit at any time during the rental period. This gives you a level of freedom and flexibility you don’t get with a loan.

Lease-to-Own Does Not Have Interest

There’s no interest, only rental. It’s the same as renting a car for the weekend. The rental that you pay is all rental, until the day you decide to exercise your early payoff option, or make your last payment. The difference between lease to own and a rental car is that you have to return the rental car when you’re done. With our lease to own program, you get to keep your shed when the contract ends.

Lease-to-own for renters

If you rent your home, it’s still possible to participate in our lease-to-own payment program. Be advised that we will need your landlord’s permission in order for you to use our lease-to-own program.

Installation

Once your building nears the end of production, your delivery date is confirmed or adjusted for weather complications. Your installation team conveys your delivery window on the day of install. Your building is placed exactly as planned and all accessory items are installed. Final touches and inspections are done to ensure your building is level and ready for you to move in. Once final payment is collected, all keys and documents are left with you, and your “Raving Fan Guarantee” coverage period begins – after which your warranty will start.

  • Confirming your delivery date
  • Onsite Install (or assembly) occurs and final touches (leveling, doors square, ramp installed, etc) and inspection after installation
  • Collect final payment, then hand you the keys & documents
  • Our “Raving Fan Guarantee™” starts and is in place for 2-weeks

The installed solution will be as purchased or a mutually agreed plan will be in place by noon the next business day from install.

  • Your warranty starts after “Raving Fan Guarantee™”

Production

Your design plans are reviewed in detail and then handed off to our production team. Any permits are submitted for review. Pending permit approval, your delivery date is then scheduled and materials are then prepped in our environment controlled facility (safe from the elements).

  • Internal order review and confirmation
  • Project site inspection virtual (or in person as needed)
  • Permits submitted / approved
    • If required, CAD and other engineered docs are drawn and certified at customer’s expense
  • Materials ordered and prepared – change order fees apply at this point
  • Order is checked prior to production completion / onsite build date
