first off sorry to hear you lost your Mom. as long as there are no mice in the garage there no reason why you cant store them in a garage as long as you take the drain hoses of the drain pump and let all the water in the pump and hoses out if you live in a cold climate,(so they dont freeze and crack the pump in the winter), mice can turn your machines into a nice little home for the winter and sometimes will chew the wires if you have any so thats not good but otherwise you will be fine. hope this helps, and God bless, Bryan
