Garages and stores
If you're in need of more storage, apply for one of our 5000 lock-up garages or stores (limited availability). You don’t have to be a council tenant to rent a garage or store from us.
Our garages are 16 feet long by 5 feet wide and 6 feet high at the entrance - ideal for a small car or additional storage.
Garage rental costs
Garage weekly rental charges are listed in the table below - our garages cost less than the average market rate!
An upfront payment of four weeks' rent is required when collecting the keys for the first time
Applying for a garage
Complete the application form to apply for a garage.
You can select a preferred neighbourhood and road on the form but some areas are more popular than others so you may have to wait until one becomes available - garages are allocated on a first come, first served basis. We suggest you add a second-choice neighbourhood or road when you apply.
If you apply for a garage in an area where all our garages are let, we will place you on the waiting list for the next available one or we may offer you a garage in a different area.
Paying for a garage
All new garage tenancies must be paid by Direct Debit.
The direct debit amounts are calculated by working out the number of Mondays in each month. Every month the Direct Debit will be equal to either four or five weeks rent. You will know in advance how much will be debited from your bank account and when.
There is a limited number of store cupboards available for rent.
The cupboards measure 6 feet by 4 feet and cost £2.28 to rent per week.
Complete the application form to apply for a store. An upfront payment of four weeks' rent is required when you pick the up keys. Future rent payments must be made by Direct Debit.
There are no store cupboards available to rent at the present time.
Cancelling a garage or store
If you no longer want or need your garage or store you can cancel it by completing the form below.
After you complete this form, you:
- must remove all of the items in the garage or store and
- make sure the garage or store is completely empty
- must return both keys to us (Crawley Borough Council) at the Town Hall. If you have lost one of the keys you will be charged for a replacement or alternatively you can get a second key cut yourself and return both the original and the newly cut key to us
We will remove and destroy anything you leave behind and charge you the cost of clearing it.
