Garage wanted in Portsmouth

I really want to rent a garage in the Portsmouth area to keep my rib and a few other things (bike etc) in. I've looked in the local advertising papers etc but havnt' been able to find anything. From what I hear garages for rent around here are like gold-dust.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Same problem in most places these days - see if there is a local storage facility using containers - place near me doing that - works out at 100 per month but prob lot more in your area???

In marinas they hire you a container (or let you put your own in) and the ground it sits on usually for about a pound per foot per week each. therefore a thirty foot container would be about 240 a month

a container in a lorry yard or a farm however do be a lot chaeper to store you can buy a thirty foot sea conatiner for under a grand.

Theres a trucker cafe in a truck yard/ truck wash in the arse end of Langstone. It's very close to the Hanson aggregates yard and the Council tip. you might try sniffing round there see what's on offer

I think my idea of cost is wwhhheeyy out of line with what seems to be the going rate down here. Back in Norfolk you can rent a standard sized garage for about 50 a month.....

I've had a few garages local to me for 50 quid a month, and I'm as muchj in the civilised world as portsmouth is. "Grannies" who no longer drive and want a bit of extra cash seem to be the most common. Of course, you never know how long they can rent it out for.
