    I'm one of those guys with big ideas for my Landy and nowhere to carry them out. So, I'm looking for a suitably sized under cover space with light and power to rent. If anybody knows of such a place in the west Manchester area please let me know. :confused:

    I don't think I can be too fussy about the exact location, there doesn't seem to be much around at the right price. Urmston would be perfect though.

    Hopefully there'll be some opportunites in the current economic climate. Good idea to check with farms though, I'll give that a try. If there are any farmers out there, what would be a reasonable weekly rental rate for a couple of parking spaces in a barn or outbuilding with power?

    do you need it to store your project or just to work on it cos the motor factors on flixton road has a workshop out the back you can rent but as far as I know it is just for an afternoon or whatever.. if not as the guys in there and see if they know..

    otherwise bound to be somewhere on trafford park I'm sure...

    Well, have turned nothing up so far. I think I'll buy some more warm clothes and waterproofs and get out there in the cold and wet!

    never heard of it but I'll google it now. Tried gumtree but no luck. Need to find a pensioner who doesn't use their garage and needs a bit of extra cash and help around the place...

    Thanks for the tip! Posted an ad, let's see what happens. Need to find a pensioner with a garage they don't use. I'm sure they would appreciate some extra cash and some help around the place.
