looking for a garage for rent

anybody know of a good place that I can rent to store stuff? I don't need ready access to it. (it's a pair of snowmobiles) I had a spot for cheap @ my sisters house, but she got a new car and wants to put it in the garage. My driveway isn't wide enough to get them in my garage, so im looking to rent something. U-haul wants $120 a month for a 10x20, which seems awefully high to me. For that price, I could get an enclosed trailer and store them outside, for alot cheaper.

suggestions?

I would search Craigslist. Or even make a post stating you are looking for a garage. You will just probably have to wade through a few "odd" responses for a few legitimate offers. If you want the items to remain near the city, then your best bet is probably a trailer or shopping the uhaul like storage yards for the best deal. If 120 is too steep, is there enough space that you could split it with someone else? Find someone you can trust that just has extra junk to store or also has a toy or two they want to hide away.

depends if it's on the way to eagle river (thats really the only place I snowmobile and thats what im trying to store)

I know in Eagle river, I can get storage for around $50 a month, and I have considered that as an option. It's less wear and tear on my vehicle not having to tow them up and back everytime, but at the same time when I need to work on them, I would have to tow them here and have no place to store them here.

so Im not sure what to do.
