There are many different options when it comes to purchasing a motorcycle storage shed or partial coverage like a carport. Every brand is going to claim that they have the best option. But what is truly important and what makes for a good quality motorcycle storage shed?
Why do I need a motorcycle storage shed?
There is so much more that goes into parking and storing a motorbike than a fully enclosed vehicle. You have to worry about rust, theft, corrosion, and vandalism when parking on the street. But if you don’t have a garage or don’t have enough room in your garage these are issues you just have to deal with.
Unless you have a dedicated motorcycle storage shed. A storage shed is an awesome option when it comes to motorbikes because you don’t have to build a giant structure to keep your baby safe from the elements and thieves.
What things should I look for when purchasing a motorcycle storage shed?
There are many options on the market when it comes to storage buildings. They make storage structures with various building materials like wood, metal, vinyl and plastic. There are more economical brands and then there are shed builders that are a higher quality but come at a higher cost.

Is it better to build a metal garage?
Metal buildings are an excellent option when it comes to a motorcycle storage shed, especially if you would
like a large building that you can use to work on your bike as well. They are sturdy, wind rated, and are an excellent defense against thieves.
However, they can be a little less versatile in terms of being able to move them. They also typically require a concrete flooring to make them as secure as possible, which can increase cost significantly. A wooden shed will come standard with a wooden floor with a moisture barrier and sit on 4×6 runners. So if you need to move it’s location on your property or across town it is not an issue.
