    Where do you store and work on your equipment?

    Your own garage
    Leased/rented facility
    Own your own facility
    Work in your driveway?

    I am lucky enough to have a garage I can store my truck in and an enclosed trailer to store the equipment.

    Family has a 35x50 shop with 50x20 office/showroom space left over after they expanded their motorcycle biz. Now I maintain the property and use the facilities.

    I rent a 40X80 building about three miles from my house.
    $250 per month, water and septic included - power costs me about another $65, dsl about $68 per month and my telephone averages about $85 per month.

    Store and work on my equipment in my shop building at home. A 24' x 40' building with an additional 10' x 24' covered concrete floored patio on front.

    I rent a pretty big place. Has room for 4 trucks and trailers, outside fuel tanks, snow plows and employee parking as well. $650 a month for all I have people tell me is pretty good price, especially for NJ.
