Common Questions. Not So Common Answers.
Every shed company works a little differently. We all have some similarities, but don’t fall into the trap of believing we’re all the same. If you want, you can even take our dare-to-compare checklist with you on your next shopping trip.
Below we’ll dig into 5 questions that are important to any shed purchase. Everyone always says to read the fine print, and we encourage it. We never want someone to do business with us if they don’t first understand what it is they’re purchasing or renting. If you have more questions, never hesitate to give us a call or ask your local dealer.
- What’s the interest like?
Many people ask us about our interest rates. But that’s just it. We don’t charge any interest. Now, yes, a portion of your monthly payment is applied as a rental payment, but the remainder of your payment is paying off your shed at the same time. This way, we never pull your credit report and if you need to send the shed back, you haven’t damaged your credit in the process.
- Are there any penalties for paying it off early?
No. If you want to pay off your shed after 2 months, then that’s great! If you want to finish out your contract, that’s great too. It’s 100% up to you.
- Will it fit where I want it?
There’s nothing worse than waiting for something to arrive only to find it won’t fit where you wanted it. With us, you don’t have to worry about this if you take advantage of our free site checks. We’ll have someone come out to your home to ensure we have enough space to get your desired shed to your desired location.
- Who do I call if I have a warranty issue?
Us. One number, one call. Here’s the number: 1-800-772-7883
Always ask about the warranties on a shed. We’ve been in business since 1984, so we’re definitely not new to the business. We continue to perfect our design and building materials so we’re always building the best shed possible for the most affordable cost. Learn more about our multiple warranties here.
- My storage needs changed, do I have to keep the shed?
No. If you’re currently on our rent-to-own program you entered into a rental agreement with us with the option to purchase. If you find yourself in a difficult spot financially or your needs for storage change, don’t worry, your credit isn’t going to suffer. Just call us and we’ll schedule pickup of the shed and we’ll end your rent-to-own agreement with us.
