I am graduating college soon and am looking to start my business. I have been trying to fgure out storage options for my equipment. I guess if I really had to I could go door knocking at houses with lage garages/barns and offer monthly rent of $100 or so. Just wondering what you guys do, and what did you do when you were getting started?

Is there a self storage somewhere maybe you can rent and get space to put your equipment ?

I pay dearly every month for storage. The reason is I live in the city you can not have any trailers, boats , so on in your yard.

Yes, it is unfortunate to have to pay for storage but you gotta go what you gotta do I guess. Here I would be able to fnd a place where I can keep a trailer in the drive way but that leaves the possiblity of theft which makes me nervous. I guess I could find a place with a garage and unload every night.

I keep my equipment in the wintertime in my parent's shed and my grandmother's shed. During the summer time I keep my trimmer and blower in my basement and my mower outside covered up and locked to the gate post. I keep all my fuel containers outside always yearround under my steps. The fuels are stabilized so i dont have to worry about it going bad. No one messes with my yard on top of i have a gate lock installed too. Once i have a pickup truck, i intend to get a cap or lid installed on the bed and keep my equipment locked in the bed when not in use and keep my fuel containers where they are now. When i do get a trailer. i'll be storing that in my grandmother's driveway. but I'm not worried about that now since i'll be getting a pickup truck around may sometime. For now i am stuck with using my mother's 2nd car i borrowed cause my old car was totaled in an accident last week and without their help, i'd really be screwed.

Perhaps you can do some lawn mowing or maintenance for someone in exchange for parking/storage privileges? This would be a win/win.

Good luck,
