Park your car really close to the side that's leaning in. That should stop it.

Your best bet would be to invest in a new garage. You would never want to have a defected garage since it holds important items

1: Borrow pickup truck
2: Find rope
3: Tie one end of rope to truck, other end to garage
4: Drive truck until garage is straight, put the e-brake on
5: Call friend and explain you'll need to keep the truck

Problem solved!

To save getting some rope, wouldn't it be quicker just to drive the pickup
gently against the wall until its plumb - and then leave the truck parked there?

the L you added to the OP's screen name was a perfect touch. Let's see if Mr. Fudd ever returns.

This is where explosives licensing can come in handy. My neighbors complained that my garage was an eyesore. Little of this, touch of that, now it's in THEIR yards!
