    Have you tried looking into a commercial real estate investment company? The usually own and lease buildings in different areas. Also if you go with them ask if they will upgrade you to a bigger space if needed anytime. I have arrangement where anytime during my lease I can step up with only the difference in cost.
    Keep in mind one bay may have you stuck in bad weather. Two you can store one and move onto the next. Most places that have a drain do not slope to the drain

    I`m a hair under 1500sqft and it can get tight. I also have other things going on too.
    One day I`ll get to do my own car.

    Welcome to the business world! It aint cheap

    look in industrial areas, not retail space on major roadways. I`m in a 1000sq ft warehouse that I pimped out

    and come on - no one has posted this yet?

    Re: How much is rent?

    A good rule of thumb to follow is to cover your costs with a weeks worth of revenue that way the rest of the month youre in the black. So if your averaging X dollars a week then you get a good basis of what you can spend on rent. Between NY and NJ no space is going to be fairly cheap just the nature of living in the area.

    Also if business is slow you may not want to put the financial stress of having a shop on you until you build a steady business that can sustain it without putting pressure on you to come up with the money every month.

    Just my two cents.
