    If you have a trolley, pole, mower hedge cutter and some power tools and 10 25 litre barrels, would you need a garage to store them or would a small utility shed suffice? I am looking for a flat and am finding it difficult to get one with a garden or garage where I could store my equipment, but the stuff (just listed above) could if placed on each other get in a smallish place. I currently use the garage of an old lady who I do work for, but who knows when that will end. Garages rent for £70/month. Are there any other options? or should I only look for a place with a garden and/or garage?

    Hi mate, have you got a van? Depending on exactly how much stuff you have it may be worth considering just getting something the size of a Vivaro or Transit which should be able to store most of that.

    The £70 p/m could contribute to the van instead depending on what age/model you got.

    Just a thought - good luck with it all fella :)

    Surely having a van is asking for things to be stolen? Filters poles mowers etc are expensive

    It's easier to break into a shed than a van
    You could fit master lock all round I have

    I store a lot of my expensive stuff in my kitchen, the water barrells and cheaper stuff could be left in the van.
