    what do u guys do when your business is at the point where it is outgrowing your garage. But you cant afford a shop. I was thinking storage units because im getting a 16 foot enclosed and it doesnt fit in the garage or the ladys back yard where i stored my 12ft open last year. So im asking for what people do?

    We rent a storage unit for our 16' trailer---$86/month for enclosed storage

    Around here a local landscape supply guy rents out space on his lot. I pay $50 a month for both a 14' enclosed trailer and a 10' open trailer. You may want to check with other contractors in the area as well. You might make a friend and get cheap storage too.

    Greg, Monday after lunch I'll show you mine. It's right up (north) Telegraph.

    I rent a 10x30 for $200 month and outside storage for my trailer is $50 month.

    I don't understand the question. Are you looking to store the enclosed trailer INSIDE a storage unit??

    I was wondering about the reasoning for this also.

    Try a storage unit! most are really cheap and you do not have pay electricity in most centers. I rent a storage unit that I can back my enclosed trailer into and still have enough room to have my desk and other equipment in for around 200 a month plus most places have security cameras, that is just added security for your investment.

    Whoa! I wish! That depends a LOT on where you're located. I pay $125 for a little 10'x20' with no elecricity. And I'm getting a bargain, most in my area are $175 for the same size unit.

    Anything over that size, and they really take off too.

    I'm looking to store my storage building that stores an enclosed trailer. Any stores available?
