The Billyoh Bike Storage Shed 4 x 7 – Our first impressions
If you’re a bike fan or your children spend hours outside riding around then this is perfect for you as it will keep your bicycles clean and dry plus it looks great. Not just for bikes or scooters, of course, you could use it for other garden or outdoor equipment such as the BBQ or children’s toys and it has excellent large double doors for ease of transporting your bicycles or equipment inside and out. Made from sturdy wood so it will last for years and the tongue & groove, rustic or overlap cladding gives it extra strength. It is an attractive looking storage building which will prove hard wearing even in the worst of weathers. Available in other sizes too to suit your particular bike storage requirements. With the opportunity to add a padlock or similar security fitting (both sold separately) you can have the peace of mind that your bikes are secure whilst not in use.
The Billyoh Bike Storage Shed 4 x 7: Questions you may have
These days they seem to have a storage solution for everything and Billyoh have definitely designed this bike storage shed with bike owners in mind. Below the team at whatshed.co.uk look at the specific features and aspects that make this bike storage shed superior to storing your bikes in a traditional garden shed or garage.
Exterior: An attractive timber cladded exterior and apex roof give this bike storage shed the feel of a traditional shed whilst being specifically designed with features for bike storage. The high quality, thick timber will protect your bikes inside from the elements and damp, rust and mould, keeping them in top condition.
Interior: The spacious 4×7 interior floor area is large enough for a whole family of bikes or if you simply wanted to use it as storage for your garden and outdoor items that would be suitable too. Shelves may be added to create further storage for all those biking accessories such as helmets, bike pumps and the like, keeping everything neat and organised.
Doors: The extra-large double doors cover the entire front of the storage shed meaning that when they are open you can see everything in the shed at once. Access to get bikes in and out of the shed on a regular or sporadic basis is fantastic and no hassle at all.
Security: We understand that when storing lots of bikes you may be concerned about security. There are no security fittings provided in the bike storage shed package, although a padlock set is available to buy separately at a modest cost.
