In some areas, we let garages or sites where you can put up your own garage. Garages should be used for the storing of private motor vehicles. If you wish to use your garage for storing other items you must first seek our written permission. We'll not grant permission for the storage of flammable or other dangerous substances.
Whether you’re a leaseholder or tenant of Bolton at Home/ private landlord, if you’re interested in applying for a garage or garage site, visit Rightmove or call us on 01204 329908 for further details.
All of our available garages are advertised through Rightmove on the Homes for Bolton website and are offered on ‘a first come first served’ basis. If you're offered a garage we’ll make an appointment with you to sign an agreement. At the appointment we'll explain the tenancy terms and conditions, ask you to pay a week’s rent in advance and give you the keys.
