Keep looking. One will pop up eventually. Also look for a buyer/reseller locally. Prices will be a hair higher, cause they gotta make a profit, but still a lot cheaper than buying new. They tend to swoop in on restaurants that fail and buy very cheap, clean it up and mark it up. You can easily spend a third or fourth of new prices. It is crazy what the new ones go for.
Very little can go wrong with them. Occasionally a compressor goes bad and you are hosed, but most will run ten or fifteen years easily, with no problems.
You won't have problems in a garage. Most commercial kitchens are very hostile environments. The commercial units are built to stand up to extreme heat and cold and some moisture.
