For those who have gone beyond solo, where do you store your equipment when it outgrows your garage?

Do you live on large properties with workshops, ect., or do you rent commercial space?

I have room for a truck and trailer, but not a few of each.

I have two customers with empty garages, I barter.

I rent an old building that contains my equipment maintenance tools, my office and under roof parking for all of my machines.
$250.00 a month and I am responsible for power and telephone - the water is included.

Thanks yardman! Rent is 1200 a month on our shop that was described above, we are in charge of all utilities. We keep a huge roll off dumpster in the lot for all the grass and organic matter, helps a lot. Our chemical shop is connected to our main shop but with another rented out space between the two that we do not rent. Chemical shop is only about 2500 sqft of shop area and 2500sqft of office area. There is no gated/outside area since we like to keep all of our chemical trucks inside during the night. The rent there is around 800 a month. Trying to get the land lord to let us rent the shop in between so we just own the whole block pretty much!!!!! lol

Im solo and have been for 7 years. I also recently purchased my first house and when we started to look we specifically looked for a house with a detached garage and some land so my company could grow and I wouldnt have to look elsewhere for storage. I have enough bills as it is. I dont need a rent payment.
