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.

Do I have to be an Aster customer to rent a garage?
The good news is that you do not have to be an Aster customer, anyone can rent a garage from us as long as you are over 18.
Will I be put on a waiting list?
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 will be added to a waiting list. Please do not contact garage officers to ask when a specific garage will become available as they will be unable to predict this.
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.
How long can I rent my garage?
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.
Will my garage have electricity?
No, Aster garages do not have electricity.
Who is responsible for the contents of my garage?
Anything you keep in the garage is your responsibility. You are responsible for insuring your own vehicle and personal possessions, together with any property stored in the garage.
We can't be certain that all our garages are watertight, so anything you store in the garage should be:
How can I pay my garage licence fee?
Aster's preferred method of payment is by Direct Debit.
Garage charges are due on Monday of each week, and are payable weekly or monthly in advance.
You will need to pay four weeks licence fees at the start of your new licence agreement.
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.
What happens if I fall behind on my payments?
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 arrears, your garage licence agreement may be at risk.
What are garage licence fee arrears?
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.
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 will be added to a waiting list. If this happens, we will contact you in the future to let you know when a garage is available.
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, we may need you to show us some photo ID.
If you decide to give up your garage, you will need to give us two weeks’ notice either by letter, phone call or email to your local Garage officer, whose contact details are listed below. Alternatively, you can complete the online form.
