The world is changing all around us, from the way we communicate to the way we travel. Vacation rental services, such as Airbnb and VRBO, have seen major success over the last few years. Rather than stay in a regular hotel, people gravitate toward a more low-key, personalized experience.

Andrew Kortez is following a similar business model with his new company, “Garage Time.”

Garage Time is a website where you can rent garage space for people to do auto repair work. This is especially useful for those in large cities, such as Chicago, Los Angeles, or New York, where many residents have to park their cars on the street. Basic repairs can still be completed outside, but Kortez ran into problems with larger repairs when he lived in Chicago. Kortez began paying his friends in the area to let him use their garages, which gave him the idea for the startup.

When listing your garage for rent, you can create a list of things in your garage. For example, does it have a vehicle lift, standard tools available, work lights, or a workbench? You can select all of the amenities available in your garage for advertising. In turn, those looking to rent can search based on amenities they need for their repairs.

Garage Time is a brand new launch; the website has only been up and running for about two weeks. However, the idea seems to have promise. As word gets out about the online marketplace, it’s expected that more people will begin listing their garages (and searching for them) over the course of the next few months.
