9 Things You Can Store in a Rental Garage

Rental storage garages are the perfect solution for people who need a place to store items that don’t fit in their homes. It is best to research to see if there are any restrictions on what you can store. 



Whether you have too much stuff and need a temporary place to keep it, or you want to make some extra money by renting out your garage space, these 9 things are great options for storing in a rental garage:



Keep your vehicle safe in a rental garage. If you’re renting a garage because you have a car that needs protecting, here are some tips for keeping it out of the elements:

  • Park your car in the garage. This will protect it from rain, snow and other weather conditions that can damage paint jobs or rust cars.
  • Keep your vehicle off the street. The more time spent parked on a curb waiting for someone to come home, the more likely thieves will want it for themselves! So park in private areas with less chance of theft and vandalism happening to your precious ride.
  • If you want to keep the garage for other items, it may be worth looking for secure parking for your car. There are many websites where you can search for long-term parking that offer discounts. For example, we searched for parking in different cities, typed in long term parking Seattle, and found prices ranging from $125 to $350. So if you want to keep your garage for storage, it is possible. 


Tires are heavy and take up a lot of space. They’re also expensive to replace, so it’s essential to store them in a cool, dry place where they won’t be damaged by moisture or temperature changes.

If you have room in your garage, you can set tires on their sides on the floor (or hang them from the ceiling if necessary). If not, consider hanging them from the walls with hooks or brackets designed for this purpose. Again, there are excellent garage storage options available online. You may also want to cover them with something like a tarp or shrink-wrap film; try searching online for “tire storage covers” or similar terms if you need help finding these items locally.

Gardening equipment

Gardening equipment can be large and dirty; it isn’t something you want inside your home. A garage is a perfect place to keep it secure. More oversized items like leaf blowers and lawnmowers can be kept on the ground. There are fantastic wall storage solutions for smaller items, with hooks and baskets to store your shovels and watering cans. As you don’t use these daily, it is an excellent way to keep them safe but still accessible.

Old books

If you have a lot of books that you don’t read anymore or want somewhere to store them in the short term, a rental garage is a brilliant option. First, store books off the ground in airtight containers to preserve them. Then, you can get plastic tubs and stack your books safely, away from any moisture.


It’s important to remember that moisture and temperature changes can damage electronics, so you should take special care when storing these items. Vibration can also cause damage if the unit is not secured correctly. Depending on what you’re keeping, it’s best to check with a professional before moving or putting anything inside. It would help if you also considered recycling old electronics you no longer use.


If you’re planning to store firewood in a garage, be sure it’s off the ground (and away from your car). This will help prevent pests like termites and rodents from getting into the wood.

Sports Equipment

Sports equipment is a great thing to store in a rental garage. However, if you have a lot of sports equipment too large for your home, keeping it away safe and secure when not in use is a good idea. Items like Golf Clubs, tennis rackets and basketballs can be kept in plastic tubs and picked up when you need to use them, creating more space in your home.


Tools are a great thing to store in a rental garage. In fact, you can keep just about anything that you need for your DIY projects and home improvement projects. If you have power tools, hand tools or other items that might be useful for your home improvement projects, then it’s wise to keep them all together in one place so that when the time comes for another project, they’re easy to find ready to use.

Christmas Decorations

If you’re looking to store your Christmas decorations, a garage can be the perfect place. Many have storage space for seasonal items such as boxes of ornaments, garlands and lights. If yours doesn’t have the space, consider renting out a second unit for this purpose.

To ensure that your Christmas decorations stay safe during their time in storage:

  • Cover them with a blanket or other protective covering that will help keep dust off of them during transit;
  • Place items in labeled boxes so they are easy to find when it’s time to take them out; and
  • Make sure you label which package contains what so there’s no confusion later on

Rental garages are an excellent option for storing these items

There are a few added benefits to storing these items; the building is more secure than your home, and someone intent on stealing from you will be less likely to if there are other people around and cameras watching from every angle. Plus, they are easy to obtain and provide an excellent way for people who don’t have their own space at home or work yet still want access when needed without cluttering up their living space.
