Three Things to Consider When Building a Motorbike Garage
November 15, 2022
Motorbike ownership in the UK has boomed since 2020. With COVID-19 lockdowns putting a halt to indoor and team activities, thousands of Brits turned to motorbiking to keep their brains and bodies happy. And it’s easy to see why they haven’t looked back: riding a motorbike gets you out in the fresh air and gets the endorphins flowing.
But even the most committed bikers have to step out of the saddle occasionally. That’s when you need access to a secure, weather-proof motorbike garage to keep your bike safe.
In this post, we’ve rounded up some of the key things to consider when choosing a motorbike garage for your home or business. Keep reading for tips on safety, aesthetics, and keeping overall costs low.
Is Your Motorbike Garage Guaranteed to Keep Your Bike Secure?
It’s every motorbike owner’s worst nightmare – saving up for your dream bike only to have it stolen or damaged in bad weather.
It’s crucial that your motorbike garage gives you peace of mind when it comes to safety and security. The most secure garages keep your bike completely out of sight, and have security features like alarms and ground locks.
While it might be tempting to skimp on these extra features, they can save you a lot of money in the long run. Not only is your bike less likely to be stolen, you could also earn discounts on your motorbike insurance. Insurers are inclined to reward owners who take extra measures to keep their bike safe.
Make sure you also consider the material your bike garage is constructed from. At Trimetals, we use a sustainable PVC-coated galvanised steel that’s both fire and weather resistant, and is absolutely maintenance-free. That means you can relax in the knowledge your motorbike is sheltered from harm without having to worry about treating or replacing any materials.
Does Your Motorbike Garage Have Room For Additional Storage?
If you own a motorbike, you’ll know that the bike itself isn’t the only thing you need to keep safe and out of sight. When choosing your motorbike garage, make sure you’ve thought about where you’ll store your bike accessories too. This might be your helmet, your leathers, cleaning materials, top box, maintenance equipment – the list goes on.
Unless you’ve got additional storage space in your home, you’ll probably want space in your garage for all these extras. Make sure your motorbike garage not only has room for your accessories but can be fitted with the appropriate shelving and storage too.
Trimetals motorbike garages are available with both shelves and workbenches, ensuring you’ve always got the space you need to store your motorcycle accessories.
Does the Appearance of Your Motorbike Garage Matter to You?
Whether it’s at your home or your workplace, a motorbike garage is a fairly significant addition to your outside space. It’s likely you’re investing in a garage for the long run, so it’s important to make sure you like the way it looks. And while a metal garage is much more secure than traditional timber, it can be hard to find a metal finish that suits your outdoor space.
Trimetals motorcycle garages are constructed from strong galvanised steel, but finished in a subtle olive green with a lapped fence design – combining maximum security with an unobtrusive finish. In fact, our metal storage buildings are the first and only sheds and garages endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society for their design and quality.
