Why Motorbike Storage Is Essential
If you’re a motorbike owner, you’ll know they offer a sense of freedom that is impossible to replicate with cars. Whether it’s avoiding those traffic jams or enjoying the rush of the wind as you cruise down those country roads, there’s nothing quite like owning a motorbike.
But to get the most out of your wheels and ensure your bike continues to be a worthwhile investment, you must protect it. Motorbike sheds are the best way to avoid weather damage, theft and debris build-up.
The Great British Weather Is A Challenge To Motorbike Owners Everywhere.
OK, living in the UK has many advantages, and nobody could ever deny that. But the infamous British weather is something we all have to accept. It rains a lot, we get a fair amount of snow in the winter months and nobodies ever quite sure about what to expect, but the weather is more than an inconvenience.
Motorbikes are susceptible to water damage, and while a waterproof cover has some benefits, nothing beats the protection a shed offers. Small amounts of rust are inevitable, but if your bike continues to take a beating from the weather, it will be a costly problem to fix.
Keep Your Home & Your Motorbike Clean
Storing your motorcycle inside your home isn’t exactly practical, and bikes spend a lot of time outdoors. That means the wheels accumulate dirt and debris, which gets carried through to your home.
If you have even a small amount of garden space, installing a motorbike shed means you have easy access to your bike and can keep it – and your home – clean.
Protecting Your Valuable Bike From Thieves.
It’s a lot easier to steal a motorbike than it is a car, and the last thing you want is to spend a fortune on your dream bike, only for thieves to steal it. While there are some ways to reduce the risk of theft, storing your bike in a secure shed will always be the most effective.
Our motorbike sheds have reinforced doors with a pick resistant Euro cylinder lock, which ensures your bike is safe at all times. We can’t guarantee that thieves won’t try to target your motorbike, but we are confident that they won’t get very far with our sheds.
Covering You From Fault With Insurance Companies
Some insurance companies won’t even consider offering you cover if you don’t have a garage
or shed to store your motorcycle in – especially if you live in a city. Crime rates are always higher in urban locations, and the average insurance company expects you to prove you’ve done everything you can to protect your bike.
If you leave it in an open location, most companies will stand their ground and refuse to pay any money. Our sheds mean you can get effective insurance that enables you to enjoy your bike for years to come.
We Offer a Range of Secure Motorbike Sheds
Motorbike sheds should offer maximum protection from the weather and keep your bike safe from thieves. At 1st Choice Leisure Buildings, we place particular emphasis on using quality materials and providing sleek designs that will look great in your garden – without compromising on functionality.
We have a range of sheds to choose between, and all of our customers have a choice between high-quality galvanised metal or wooden sheds made from Scandinavian softwood.
Reinforced Metal Sheds
Metal sheds offer heightened security, so if you’re worried about thieves stealing your bike, you can’t go wrong with a solid design. Our metal sheds come in a range of sizes, but each uses galvanised steel to ensure maximum protection from the elements.
With reinforced, lockable doors and surrounds for extra security and pick resistant locks, you can keep your motorcycle safe from rain, snow and heavy winds.
Whether you need a small shed or would like a larger model to combine your motorbike storage with other items, our cost-effective, expertly crafted bike sheds won’t let you down.
Please take a look at our SafeStore Gold high-security secure bike shed workshops, as they are some of the best available anywhere. They have a weatherproof polyester coating, drill proof external bolts and are maintenance-free.
All of our metal sheds are built to withstand the harshest weather conditions and most cunning thieves. Better still, they come with free installation and an affordable price.
Secure Wooden Sheds
It doesn’t matter where design technology takes us; wood will always be a favourite. It’s effortlessly sophisticated and can blend in with your garden. Wood is also environmentally friendly, but there are some things to be aware of before choosing a shed.
Many budget sheds use chipwood and other cheap boards, which might seem like a good idea, but they’re susceptible to water damage, which can leak through to the interior. This can cause more damage to your motorbike, which completely defeats the object of having a motorcycle shed in the first place.
We use Scandinavian softwood in our wooden sheds, with polyester backing and roofing felt to prevent any water from escaping through the roof. You’ll also benefit from toughened glass windows and a Taurus manufactured safety lock with a 50mm strong bolt (on certain model).
Flexible Motorbike Storage Sheds
It doesn’t matter how small your garden is, because we offer a selection of sheds in all sizes. Smaller spaces can benefit from our alley shed designed to store your motorcycle without compromising garden space.
You can also customise your shed to meet your preferences, including choosing between a range of colours and floor types. We offer an assembly service on our SafeStore Gold buildings and free installation on the Diamond and Platinum timber building, giving you flexibility and peace of mind that our additional security features will protect what you value most.
