- What is Rent-to-Own(RTO)?
Rent-to-Own is renting with the option to buy. We allow you to rent a storage building for a specific term, at an affordable rate, with no obligations. If you make timely payments for that term, you will own the building. If you do not want to keep the building, you can return it at any time with no penalty.
