Garages owners are often interested in sharing their space with DIYers, but are unsure about what’s involved with listing their garage. To address the question about what is needed to open and operate a DIY garage, we’ve put together this guide as a framework. Each garage will have different requirements, such as a home shop space vs. a full commercial establishment, so be sure to consider everything that might apply to your unique space.
We’ve coached a number of garages at this point in terms of how to get going, and in turn those individuals have seen a steady stream of income from their space.
We hope this guide helps you operate and run a successful community garage, bringing not only extra income for tools, rent, and your dream projects, but also build a strong local community of motor enthusiasts and long-lasting relationships.
