Are you using your garage?

8 Jul '19

Hi everybody,

I’m looking for a garage to store my VW campervan. I want to keep the weather off it when not in use, and do some small jobs here and there - nothing major, no power tools. I’m also a professional cycle mechanic so sometimes I would use the space to fix my bikes.

I live on stanstead road near the Blythe hill tavern but anywhere within reasonable walking distance or even a bike ride away would do.

My only requirements are that it needs to be 2.2m high to fit the van, and electricity would be a big plus though not essential.

I can pay of course, I’m on the council waiting list but not holding my breath for anything anytime soon…

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi simon. Good luck it’s something I’ve been looking for too. I spoke to the council and when pressed was told they had 700+ people on the waiting list (they wouldnt say where I was) so yeah keep breathing.

When I was in Southwark it was cheaper for me to private rent a garage than get a council owned one as I wasn’t living in a council property.
