We were supposed to find a new everyday vehicle for my wife this month, but we haven’t gotten out to any dealerships yet. In the meanwhile, I signed a monthly lease for this nearby storage garage to hold a new ‘fun’ car for me.
I have an SUV for everyday needs that my son and I bought in North Carolina a few years ago. I also have a sports car that I got soon after I retired that I drive in the summer and in performance events. With our 3-car garage completely full (and our son’s car in the driveway), we were capped for parking space.
Still, I’ve been interested in expanding the fleet for some time. I’d love to have more room to rotate through some other vehicles as more of a hobby, starting with a Jeep. I have a few friends who have car collections with multiple cars in offsite garages, but I’ve been limited on space.
This ‘branch office’ – just 5 minutes from our house – will be easy to drive in & out of to switch cars. It’s about $170/month because single garage rentals like this are in huge demand right now. It’s a month-to-month lease, so I can easily exit if I find a better solution.
Anyone else have a fleet that extends beyond their home garage?
