Purchasing a Pod is easy. You’ll fill out the certificate of ownership paperwork and sign your lease documents. Once those are executed, you’ll wire 150k per pod you purchase, send your check in, deposit check directly in UOH’s account or fill out the IRA application for purchasing through your IRA. If you choose to purchase with cash, we offer secured armored truck services for delivery from you to us. Once your funds have cleared and your paperwork has been received by UOH, your official certificate of ownership will be sent to you with your Pod’s unique serial number and picture of the Pod after being installed at the designated UOH Property.
United Opportunities has obtained lease agreements and long-term contracts with cultivators to rent your equipment. Due to our attractive margins, we’re able to pass down to the Pod owner lucrative lease payments.
Yes, the lease payments are simply funds you’re being paid from a land management company for renting/leasing your Equipment. UOH does not touch or cultivate any crops themselves, they strictly deal with the purchasing and leasing of heavy agricultural farming equipment. Your lease payments are not from any percentage of the crops that the tenants are cultivating. UOH does not handle any produce, herbs or plants.
Yes, partners, group purchases or companies are able to purchase PODs, but your lease payment will only be made out to one individual or company. United will not issue multiple checks for lease payments on 1 pod.
You’ll have a few options at the end of your initial lease.
Option 1: We’ll purchase the Pod from you for the original purchase price of 150k.
Option 2: You can renew your lease with us for another 5 years with an increase to your lease payments, bringing it to 22% return and an additional 2% increase for every 5 years you sign with a max of 20 years total for the lease.
Option 3: You can have your Pod shipped to you or whichever address you choose for your own use.
We strongly advise not breaking the lease with United, due to the payment penalties. However, the Pod is your property and if you choose to terminate your lease with United, you’ll need to give United 90 days written notice and cover shipping costs of your Pod to the address you choose. You would also be liable for the early termination penalty that’s in your lease. The penalty varies depending on the time remaining in your lease.
All tax benefits from the purchase of agricultural farming equipment you should discuss with your CPA. That being said, our CPA’s have issued us letters of opinion, stating that your Pod’s full purchase price can be 100% deducted in year 1 with a cap of $500,000 dollars. This is due to the Pod’s being classified as agricultural farming equipment you’re profiting from through leasing.
Your first lease payment will be issued 90 days after the purchase of your Pod. You will receive your lease payments quarterly. Your payment will vary by the number of Pods we’re leasing from you but equals 20% and/or $30,000 a year per POD.
The Pod features the latest state of the art technology. Our cloud-based system allows you to operate every aspect of your grow room from one intelligent and fully programmable controller. Complete CO2 control, Light Timer, Temperature, Humidity, Recycle Timers, Vent Fans, High Temperature Shut-off, Air conditioning and heating. Vertical farming technologies are used to maximize the container square footage to its fullest. Our Pods proprietary lighting systems are designed to grow produce in the superfood category. Lastly, United’s Pods employs its own patented Bipolar Ionization air purification technology. Effective against bacteria, spores, VOC compounds and particles. Our smart technology treats the source of the contamination to deliver the laboratory environment serious farmers want.
The Pod’s will all have different strains, brands and manufacturers growing their crop inside of them. The products range from high-quality specialty crops, organic produce, specifically leaf crops, including many varieties of herbs.
Each property has city water, a well, catchment ponds and/or water truck delivery’s sufficient enough for all POD’s on the property. Our filtration systems are state of the art and use 90% less water than traditional grow systems. United’s property also has city electric with solar and backup generators for redundancy.
Our security systems and protection agency staff do more than just give us protection against theft. They also ensure compliance and help to avoid HR issues. All of United’s properties are heavily secured with personnel, cameras inside and outside containers, motion sensors, temperature sensors, automated fingerprint scanning locks, metal detectors along with dogs. There is no greater security for the tenant’s crops than a locked container.
There is other Pod Manufacturers, but United’s Pod’s are the most advanced medical Pod’s currently on the market and offering our lease program. The couple other pod manufacturers that exist today, don’t have a fraction of the technology United’s Pod’s do.
Yes, but none to the owner of the Pod. The only out of pocket expense for a Pod purchase is the original purchase price of 150k plus applicable tax if any and/or optional insurance of $250 which is deducted from your quarterly rent checks per Pod.
