Common Payment Questions about Cook’s Rent to Own Program

Our Cook portable sheds are available in a variety of styles, features and buying programs. In style you have options from the compact, unique Garden Shed to the larger Lofted styles with copious storage room. In features, Cook buildings can be customized based on the number of windows and choosing to add a heavy-duty floor. In their buying programs you can choose a Pre-Owned shed, or choose our most popular, Rent to Own program with it’s trade up option.

The Rent to Own program allows customers to get the shed that fits their needs, but might not match their wallet (at least right now). It’s the alternative to renting a storage unit.

In fact, when comparing the two options, our Rent to Own program is more convenient that choosing an off-site location to store your goods. Plus, it is more affordable, with comparable prices per square foot and your payment going toward eventually owning it.

Read on to get the answers to some of the most common payment questions we hear about our Rent to Own shed program.

 Rent to Own a Cook Shed

How do I Rent to Own a portable building?

First, call or visit one of our local Cook dealers to get a sense of what buildings are currently available in your area. Once you select the best one for your needs, all that is required for delivery is a deposit.

That deposit is 100 percent refundable when you exercise the option to purchase and a credit application is not required.


Are there interest charges associated with the Rent to Own program?

There are no hidden charges. Our Rent to Own program was established as an alternative to mini-warehousing, so it’s a no strings attached plan.

That means that a portion of each rental payment is applied toward the purchase price of the building. So, after renting the building for 36, 48 or 60 months, you own it!


Are there penalties for paying off a building early through the Rent to Own program?

Of course not! We are happy to work with customers to help them in any way possible. Customers can pay off their building at any time during the lease without incurring any penalties.


Can I return the building if I decide I don’t need it anymore?

Yes, you can return your backyard warehouse anytime during the Rent to Own agreement for any reason. We understand that your needs and priorities change. We want your shed to be useful, for when you need more room for your stuff and when you don’t.

If your building becomes a financial burden or you no longer need the building, simply give us a call and we will promptly pick it up. Returning your shed also won’t have any negative impact on your credit score.


I just purchased a building through the Cook Rent-to-Own program. When is my first payment due?

Monthly payments are due on the last day of each month. If your new building was delivered between the first to the 15th of that month, the first monthly payment is due by the last day of that same month. If your building was delivered between the 16th and the last day of the month, the first monthly payment is due by the last day of the following month.


Where do I send my monthly shed payments?

Please mail your monthly payments to:

Cook Sales, Inc.

P.O. Box 538389

Atlanta, GA 30353-8389
