Garages – No Longer For Just Storing Your Car

If you have just purchased a new property with a garage, the chances of your car ever being stored in it are these days very slim, with an estimated 7% of garages being used to store cars, which means for around 90% of us, our garages are used for many other reasons than what they were traditionally built for.
