I'm looking for a secure Garage to rent in the SE1 area (I live near Long Lane). I would need it from the end of March onwards. Does anyone have any suggestions or have one themselves that would be available?
I recently got a 25 sq ft self storage unit in Willow Walk, which works out at £60 per month. Although there isn't 24-hour access like you would have with a garage, it is cheaper and, arguably, more secure. We looked into the garages but at £18 per week I felt it was too expensive.
Southwark council are putting the price up again for non Southwark residents to rent garages.
They also introduced a discount for 70+ and disabled people last year, allowing them to rent garages for £5 per week, this has now been abolished from 5th April, however can still get a £5 discount from the £18.XX per week. a huge sum of money for a pensioner or someone disabled.
Southwark is trying to get rid of local people having garages and making it a more commercial venture.
Shame on you Southwark, I have seen garage rents go from £6 to over £18 per week in the last 6-8 years!
Thanks for the info Gavin, what was the storage company? I can see the garages have gone up in price.James, I will try the JMB website and comriverside, I will also take at look at the website you have put forward. Zoe, the council website for garages was unavailable when I looked the other night but I'll try again
