You will find that these bicycle storage sheds come in a large range of qualities and examples are the cheap shed ranges. These are inexpensive domestic garden sheds which could do a job of keeping your items dry in your garden. You may be able to fit a padlock to these to deter the casual thief but by their very nature and inexpensive price tags will not stop any professional thieves, so you need to be wary of these types of buildings.
Some of these cheap ranges have vents, but not all, which help to reduce condensation and if you build a purpose-built base with a DPC (damp proof course) built in then condensation should not be a such a problem. Most of these cheaper bike sheds are made abroad and are compactly packed for easy home delivery.
You could then look at the SafeStore Silver range of metal garden bike storage sheds. The walls on these buildings are shaped to give the appearance of wood so you can have the advantages of a metal shed with the look of a wooden shed or heavy duty workshop.

If security is the key to your requirements then the SafeStore Gold secure steel motorcycle sheds should be your choice. Although the price range is substantially higher than the more basic metal bike storage sheds, you will find this is reflected in the thickness and construction of these buildings. Most are made from extra thick 1.2mm thick Galvatite steel and with door and with surrounds reinforced with 1.6mm steel box section the thieves have no chance. The larger garage have a robust 5 point (pick resistant) locking system offering you unrivalled garden security.

Another popular choice are concrete bike sheds which are very strong and very secure from the point of view of stopping thieves getting in. Available in a range of sizes and styles they are all assembled free of charge. All you have to do is to provide a solid, level concrete base for the garage to go onto.
Timber make good outdoor bike storage units and is another good option. They are very flexible in the size of building available. However, only buy wooden bike sheds made from tongue and grooved timber as this will stop thieves getting into the building by ripping off the outer cladding. Always ensure your make sure the hinges and door is secured using security screws. Most wooden bike sheds will be erected free of charge.
Other advantages are that metal is not attacked by harmful termites or timber rot. It’s harder for mice and other crawlies to make their home in a metal shed and the roof felt does not need replacing as it is not used.
All in all its worth giving metal bicycle sheds some consideration before making your choice of a shed direct from the ‘web’. As I have said before always try to see the shed before buying and be very aware of the cheap metal sheds seen in the catalogues in the high street. You NEVER have an opportunity to view these and it’s not until they arrive in your garden that you realise why these sheds are so cheap. A well-known fact is that a cheap shed is not necessarily the best value shed.
