Owning a motorcycle is fun, but watching your bike endure the elements while it’s parked is not so fun. If you’re considering a permanent motorcycle storage solution, check out these storage options to find the best one that works for you, your bike, AND your budget. If you’re tired of paying storage rental fees and want to hop on your motorcycle as soon as you walk out the door, you do have affordable options.
The storage shed industry has come a long way, and there are quite a few options at your local big-box retailer. Don’t forget to factor in pricing for leveling and site preparation. If you’re not a fan of wood, you can order pre-fab metal storage sheds in a variety of sizes and colors.
If you have the room on your property, consider a combo unit. Most of these units are built as a custom metal building with a storage area and a cover to give you shelter when you need to work on your bike or detail it before and after a road trip.
Affordable Garage Options
It’s easy to assume that a garage is out of your price range or won’t work on your property. It is difficult to identify a general price-per-square-foot on a freestanding garage; HGTV outlines all of the following factors that impact pricing:
- Driveway/Foundation Costs
- Zoning & Permit Fees (depend on location)
- Materials Fees (depend on location)
A reputable contractor should be able to help you plan and budget for the extra items that come with a free-standing garage project. If you want to keep the cost of a free-standing garage down but don’t want to sacrifice quality, consider a metal vertical roof garage. Although prices will vary by state, a metal building site doesn’t require as much prep work as a regular building.
A Win Win – No Monthly Storage Fees
What’s the best part about investing in a permanent motorcycle storage option? NO MORE STORAGE FEES. According to Neighbor.com, the U.S. national average cost of a storage unit in 2018 was $88.85 per month. Metal garage prices start as low as $2615.00 per unit and financing is available on a rent-to-own basis in some locations. Sizes start at 12 ft wide x 21 ft long – much bigger than a storage unit!
