IN A SENTENCE...
Huge capacity, good feature set including a lockable lid and a handy interior light
Haier is a popular Chinese brand that has a good partnership with premium German brand Liebherr and this is a large capacity freezer with over 400 litres of usable space - which is around 21 bags of shopping.
It has those luxury features such as an interior light and a lockable lid, and being A+ rated uses only 333 units of electricity per year which is quite economical given its storage capacity.
A front drain port makes for easy access when defrosting, and a LCD readout shows the current internal temperature.
Haier confirm that this freezer "will continue to operate in an unheated outside building and/or room in the UK and Ireland and your warranty remains valid" although they don't mention specific temperature levels. We would err on the side of caution and say 10 degrees Celsius minimum - that might rule out your unheated garage.
