Sometimes you just need more space. That’s all there is to it. Whether it’s the basement overflowing or no room in the garage for your car, you know you need to do something.

It’s at this point that a lot of people start considering their options for storage buildings. Of course, not everyone is willing or able to spend the cash required to buy a storage shed up front. That leaves two main options: rent a self-storage unit or purchase a rent-to-own storage building.  If you are choosing between the two, one makes a lot more sense, financially and practically. Here are 5 reasons you should buy a rent to own storage building instead of paying for self-storage:

1. Rent to own storage buildings have a lower cost per square foot.

Let’s start with the month-to-month cost of renting storage vs. a rent to own storage building. estimates that the average 5×5 self-storage unit costs about $40-$50 per month (although that number may be lower in some areas). That’s about $1.80/month per square foot!
