Rent a garage

We have garages to rent across the Wigan borough.

Anyone can rent a garage, and you don’t have to be a Wigan Council tenant. The cost of renting a garage does vary depending on the location and if you are a council tenant.

How to apply

Take a look at our list of garage sites in Wigan and Leigh. If you would like to rent a garage, please complete our online application form.  

Some garage sites are more popular than others so there may be a waiting list. If you are offered a garage you will need to sign a garage tenancy agreement. When you sign this agreement you will need to provide:

  • Two forms of identification e.g. photo driving license, passport, bills addressed to you at your home
  • Your bank details, if you want to pay by direct debit.

Things to note when renting a garage

  • Rent is payable weekly, however you can pay monthly if you choose to
  • The best method of payment is by direct debit
  • Your garage must only be used to park your vehicle and not used for business purposes
  • If your garage needs a repair, please let us know and provide the full garage address
  • If you want to stop renting your garage, we require a month's written notice.
