Garage Space For Rent using Stashbee

Rent out your garage Space in the UK

This article takes you through how you can rent out your garage space and make some additional passive income per month.

I recently decided to rent my garage out, as I only have a few belongings in there, using up all the storage space. I also wanted some extra income each month. After doing the research I decided to go through a storage site, to remove risks of having a direct deal with a stranger and to reduce time spent advertising online.

I stumbled across the storage website Stashbee the “market place for cheap self-storage, garages, and parking.”  The company links people with spare garage, general storage space and attic space with those looking for cheap storage, essentially, they are a storage broker, like Airbnb is, in the accommodation space.

Below I will take you the steps I took to renting out my garage space and help you do the same:

Placing an advert

I started by cleaning the garage up first and removing my few belongings, I took several photographs of my garage on my smartphone and then uploaded them with a brief description of the space, as well as uploading my ID and bank details on the Stashbee profile (all data is secure). I set the price per month by researching the prices of lock-up garages near me on the Stashbee site.

Replying to Stashbee adverts

After a few emails back and forth from a customer, we exchanged numbers (all on the Stashbee platform) and arranged a time to show him space. He needed a place to store his personal items (as he was looking to move in a few months).

The story added up (seemed legitimate) and the contract written by Stashbee settled any concerns I had. Stashbee ensured they have the ID of everyone who hosts or is a customer, which makes the meeting as safe as possible.
Time took = 10 minutes

Meeting the Stashbee customer

I met the customer and showed him the garage lock-up space. He was happy with space and security, we therefore verbally agreed all was fine, so I gave him a spare key to start his move in a few days later. The next day, I spoke to Stashbee to confirm the move-in date so payment would be aligned with this. I then phoned Stashbee directly about the timings.
Time took = 30 minutes

Signing the contract & finalising the deal

Both the customer and I received a contract online (as an email attachment) to sign online by Stashbee. In the contract, all the items he was storing were listed and were all covered up to £1,000 by Stashbee as part of their insurance policy. I also phoned Stashbee to confirm everything was already.
Time took = 10 minutes

The Contract Terms

Certain key terms included in the agreement:
To terminate the agreement, it is required one calendar months’ notice in writing to Stashbee. The “Duration” entered in the booking process is indicative only and
• The Host must provide a minimum of two calendar months’ notice in writing to Stashbee to cancel the agreement.
• All waste and rubbish in the space needs to be cleared of at all times by the Guest.
• Both Parties are responsible for informing Stashbee of any breach of Terms and Conditions

Once all signed, that was it! 50 minutes of my time. Both of us were happy with the garage lock-up arrangement. I am now getting £125 per month (with two months’ notice needed from the customer to cancel it). Overall it was an easy, safe, quick and efficient process.
