    Ours is a storage place for the lawnmower, bbq, spare chairs, boxes from the pushchair etc. I don't know anyone who puts their car in the garage!

    I use my garage after having my car broken into when leaving it parked in the communal car park behind my mum and dads house. I'm compulsive over it, I'll get the car out and put it away every time even if I'm going out again later as the break in took place midday in a half hour gap between me getting in and my brother going out

    Ours is full of tools (every tool known to man!), lawnmower, outside furniture, boxes, wood & a canoe that's got loads of holes in it.

    DH did keep his motorbike in the garage until he sold it.

    We don't have a garage but do have a huge shed that is full of bikes, lawnmowers and all sorts of DH's junk. Everyone that I know that has a garage has just filled it with stuff and leaves their car on the drive.

    We don't have one, but in my experience they're generally used for all manner of crap whilst the most expensive item (the car) is left out on the street :rofl:

    Our garage is round the back of a load of houses so the only people that would be around are the people that live in 6 houses and we all leave our cars on our rear drives!

    At the old house, if dad wasn't parked in it then I would.

    At the current house, we don't as there's a) too much crap in there and B.) I could get the car in, but I wouldn't be able to get out :rofl:
