Garage rental prices
Rental charges are calculated based on garage size, condition and location. Please note, if you are renting more than one garage, this may also affect your rental charge.
Aster leaseholders pay less than private applicants because they are not liable to pay VAT.
Garage charges are due weekly in advance on a Monday. Direct debit is our preferred method of payment.

What happens next?
Once you have completed our application form, our team will begin to process your application and carry out the required checks to confirm your eligibility. Once completed, we'll write to you and confirm your application has been approved. Please note this may take up to 10 working days.
Depending on availability in your area, we may be able to offer you a garage straightaway. However, in areas where demand is very high you might be added to a waiting list. If this happens, we will contact you to let you know.
Once you are offered a garage, you'll need to sign a licence agreement with us. We also require four weeks rent in advance, paid by debit/credit card (we do not accept cash payments).
If you're not already an Aster customer, you'll need to show us some photo ID.
Giving up your garage
If you decide to give up your garage, you will need to give us two weeks’ notice in writing, ending on a Sunday. You can do this by completing the online form or by completing a paper form. You can obtain a paper form by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before you return your garage keys please make sure you clear the garage of all belongings and rubbish. If you leave anything in the garage we'll charge you the cost of clearing the garage.
You need to return all the keys to the garage by 10am on the date the notice runs out. You can return the keys to one of our offices - your garage advisor will let you know which, or you can return them by registered post to your garage advisor.

Whilst garages are offered according to the length of time applicants have been waiting for a garage, we do give priority to registered disabled applicants.
Generally you can keep your garage for as long as you need it, as long as you keep your licence fee payments up to date and keep to the terms of your licence agreement.
No, Aster garages do not have electricity.
Aster's preferred method of payment is by Direct Debit.
Payments can be made at any Post Office using a payment card we'll provide at the start of the garage tenancy.
Payments can also be made over the phone by calling 0333 400 8244. To pay by telephone you'll need to hold a valid debit or credit card.
Call us as soon as possible on 0333 400 8244 to discuss your account. Please note, if you are an Aster Customer and you fall into arears, your garage licence agreement may be at risk.
Aster will repossess a garage if your licence fee arrears rise to an unacceptable level or your account is in arrears for too long.
Unlike houses and flats, we don't have to apply to the courts for a Possession Order. Our policy is to repossess a garage as soon as the Notice to Quit is served, even if the money owed is then paid.
However, most arrears cases can be dealt with quickly and easily if you get in contact with us early enough. Ignoring the situation can only make matters worse.
Due to the low level of licence fee compared to the rent on a house or flat, some may regard garage licence fees as low priority. However we have a duty to recover all money owed to fund the services we provide.
