Public Storage Units In Kansas City? Here is a Better Option

qsh-1216Have you been or are you looking into renting public storage units in Kansas City? When people need extra storage space for their belongings the most common option is to rent out a storage shed, but most people don’t know that there are better options! Here at Classic Buildings we offer a Rent-to-Own program which allows you to pay monthly payments on one of our storage sheds, and these payments go towards the overall cost of the shed. This means that after a couple of years you could own your own storage unit instead of continuing to pay for public storage! In this article, we’ll walk you through some of the benefits of our Rent-to-Own program, or of purchasing your own storage shed outright. If you have any additional questions you can click here to contact us today.

“It was a pleasure working with confident and qualified people. The workmanship and materials are second to none, We have a hand-built, quality building for the price of a prefabricated structure. I would recommend Classic Buildings to anyone who requires a building for storage, recreation, or whatever your needs are.”

– Mike Dinello from Wentzville, MO

Long-Term Cost

The worst part about renting a storage unit is that the long term cost adds up relatively quickly. On average, most storage units in Kansas City could run anywhere from $35-$80 a month depending on size and other factors. While that may be manageable for a limited period of time, for any long- term storage needs this will quite quickly become a financial burden. For example, let’s take a look at the cost of renting a storage unit for 10 years:

Low End: $35 x 120 months = $4200    High End: $80 x 120 months = $9600

Overall you’d be looking at a cost of $4200 – $9600 over a 10-year period but you have nothing to show for it. With our Rent-to-Own program, you’ll pay as low as $85 a month, however, after a couple of years you could have your unit paid off and will no longer have monthly  storage costs. You’ll also be the proud owner of a storage shed  that you’re free to use however you’d like.


With public storage units, there are rules that you’re expected to follow in regards to what you’re allowed to store. Some storage units also require a sign-in to access your storage unit. When you have a storage shed on your property you’re in total control of what you want to store in your shed and accessing your shed is much easier.

Accessibility & Convenience

As we mentioned briefly in the last section, owning your own storage shed means that you always have access to the items you have stored. With storage units, you may also be required to drive to your storage unit, whereas having a storage shed on your property requires you only to walk to your backyard (or wherever you decide to locate it).

Ability To Modify

minibarn-lpMost storage units are pretty standard in how they’re built. They’re usually just a big empty room.  While sometimes they have some slight shelving areas in the back, for the most part, you can expect no other organization options. When you purchase a storage shed you have a ton of options for how you would like for them to look. One of our most popular storage shed models is the lofted barn because its loft provides for additional storage space that makes it easy to separate seasonal items such as Christmas trees or gardening equipment from other items which may be used more often such as bicycles or wheelbarrows.

Want to modify your storage shed into a working area as well? That’s no problem! Some of our storage sheds are built with extra windows to let in additional light to make it an optimal place for adding a small workbench.

Increase In Home Value

This one is pretty straight forward. If you put money into renting a storage unit for several years you can’t expect to see a return on your investment. With a storage shed, however, not only do you have a convenient, more cost-effective storage space for your home, but you also increase the value of your home. If you decide a storage unit is still the best option for your needs try searching a business directly like Yelp, Angie’s List or T Section for what options you have in your city.
