You know some people say that back in their day that they could leave their bike on the lawn and not have it stolen and also somehow not have it rust due to our British weather. Well those people must have grown up in a different UK to us! Anyway, today we are looking at the best way to keep your bike safely locked away from thieves and protected from the weather. Or if you have kids, they will finally have a place to keep their bike that does not involve you falling over it as you go to work on a morning. These ten bike shed retailers are the best in the UK and we are taking on the tough task of putting them in a top ten so you know what the deal with each of them is.

By far the best site on this top ten for bike sheds is Garden Buildings Direct. They have a great selection of bike sheds. Many of these do share the same kind of style, but they have made sure that each style can be purchased in different sizes which was something we really liked to see and also each one has a few extras available for it.  more...

They have bike sheds of all prices and in general they pretty much have a bike shed for every budget and every taste. Garden Buildings Direct can sometimes be a site that is a little busy and a little awkward to browse, but this section of their site is easy to navigate and they have made sure it is easy to know the ins and outs of every bike shed.

There is a great selection of bike sheds waiting for you at Buy Sheds Direct. One thing that we love is that they actually have bike storage for as low as £50 (which is for a cheap and cheerful bike tent). Their range then goes all the way up to a series of high quality and top of the line Trimetals bike sheds, so they certainly have bike sheds of  more...

all prices here. The site really could not be any easier to use and they do have multiple ways to contact them should you have any questions. While the information on the site is great, we do wish that some of the bike sheds had a few more pictures though.

Shed Store have a very interesting way of showcasing their bike sheds. You see as well as showing you actual bike sheds they also show the sheds that while not marketed as a bike store, would still offer an ideal space to keep your bike safe. We really like this and it does help flesh out their selection as well. It is easy to see all they have  more...

and the descriptions and photos of each bike shed are spot on. One thing they do which is pretty cool is give you a list of extras which they feel may interest you. This is a solid site with a decent selection and some excellent customer service.

There is a fantastic selection of wooden and metal bike sheds at Waltons and the site makes it very easy to learn about each of the bike sheds. Most of them do have multiple pictures as well. While the selection is great, Waltons seem to be more about the high quality bike sheds as most of them are £200 or over, so if you want something cheap  more...

then you will not find it here. Still for a selection of high quality bike sheds this is actually one of the best sites on the list. They also have a selection of extras and customisation options for a number of the sheds so if you want to pimp out your bike shed that would be easy to do.

The fact that a site that has as decent a selection and is as easy to navigate as Sheds.Co.Uk is at number 5, shows what a tough and competitive list this is! We really like their selection of wooden bike sheds here, they are a little bit more on the up market side so no sub £150 bike sheds here. One thing that we love is how they have also  more...

put some of their plastic sheds here as well – sheds that are not being sold as being for bike storage, but would do a great job if you were to purchase them with that in mind. With easy to follow information, multiple pictures and plenty of extras to consider, this is a site that came very close to being a couple of spots higher on the list.

B&Q actually surprised us with their selection of bike sheds, not only are they selling bike sheds, but they also have a couple that are marketed as motor bike sheds which we thought was pretty cool. They have both wooden and metal and as far as the major DIY chains go they certainly offer the best selection. As always the B&Q site is easy  more...

to look around, but we do feel that they could have had a few more, lower priced bike sheds. One other thing we must mention is that out of all the sites, bike sheds on B&Q had more customer reviews than any of the other sites, so you can get a good gauge on what customers really think here.

Homebase may not have a large selection of bike sheds, but we do like what they have. Specifically they have a great selection of Trimetals bike sheds which was a nice surprise. Most of their bike sheds are high end, so there are only a couple that are under £200. The site is very easy to browse and we feel that the information they offer for each  more...

bike shed is fine as are the multiple pictures for each one they have. Oddly, while Homebase sell just a ton of stuff, they do not actually list any extras that you may want with the bike sheds so you will have to search around separate for them. This is not a huge deal, but we find it odd that they are not showcasing some of the other bike related items they have with their bike sheds.

There are only three bike sheds for sale on Wickes site and do not get us wrong these are three decent bike sheds, but it is a very small selection. With two high priced metal and one reasonably priced wooden bike shed, you will not be overwhelmed with choice here which may be a good thing. Each of the bike sheds has a detailed  more...

description, but we do feel it would have benefited to have put more than one picture with each bike shed. Wickes do have a very well made site that makes looking around it a hassle and stress free experience.

Taylors Garden Buildings is a fantastic site, but while they do have multiple sections for all kinds of storage, we did have a bit of trouble finding their bike store section which we know may be a pain for some people. This is not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things and they do have a few different types of bike storage, but they also show  more...

you other regular storage sheds as well that would be suitable for bike storage. They do have great customer service so it would be easy to get in touch and ask a few questions, but as good as this site is their selection of actual bike stores is a bit lacking.

Sheds World do actually have a fairly decent selection of bike stores on their website, but it did take us a little while to find their bike shed section as it was kind of hidden away. They are great at giving you all the information you need to know and they even have a few different pictures for most of their bike sheds as well which is  more...

something we like to see. The issue with have with Sheds World is that they do not have the best reputation when it comes to customer service or delivery times, so we suggest you read some customer reviews before placing an order here.
