I have a 12 year old chest freezer that is still a good condition. Question is I would like take it out of my basement and put it in the garage.

Would there be any problems doing this. The temp in there here parts of Northern Alberta Canada can get at low at -40 c in the winter (outside temp not garage!!) my garage is not heated?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Our freezer is older than this and is a chest type,and has always been in a unheated garage it's whole life with no problems what so ever,so I would say go ahead and don't worry about it.
