Thanks all for you suggestions. "depot" is the closest for what we
need although it's not only a depot for vehicles. It's also keeping
various equipments required by municipalities (could be street
furnitures, salting of roads, plants (winter), compost, etc).

Btw, use simply "depot=*" instead of "depot:type=*". I don't
understand this recent trend to add a ":type" suffix in subtags. It
was not the case in the past (e.g. "building=*", "wood=*",
"traffic_signals=*", etc, etc, etc)
