Advantages of a Private Garage

When you’re looking for your new apartment home, there are lots of factors to consider. One feature of apartment life that might be an afterthought is parking, because many apartments don’t give you options beyond surface or carport parking. At 82 Flats, however, we have garage parking with assigned spaces, as well as apartments with semi-attached private garages.

If you’ve never considered having your own garage, take a look at these ways it can make life more convenient:

Protection from the Elements

Perhaps the most obvious advantage to a private garage is the protection it offers from Indianapolis weather. You don’t have to worry about clearing snow off your car before you leave home, your upholstery is protected from sun-bleaching, and your vehicle is shielded from hail. As a bonus, when your car is parked in your garage, it will stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Security When You’re Away

When you’re on vacation or away on business, you can rest easy knowing your car is protected from dents and dings in your private garage.

Extra Space for Projects

Need a little extra room to do some bike repairs or a craft that’s a bit too messy to attempt in your apartment? A private garage gives you the space to tackle these projects, and the flexibility to leave them as-is at various stages without having to put everything away. If you’re a DIY-er who needs a little more space, a garage is a great option for you.

Additional Storage Space

A garage is a good place to store large items that you don’t want encroaching on your living space, or items you seldom use – holiday decor, snow skis, and bicycles, for example.
