We Start With How Much Garage Bike Storage You Need

First things first, the number of bikes you own will inevitably influence how much garage bike storage you need. Additionally, you’ll also need to consider the size of your bicycles; for example, kids’ bikes and beach cruisers have different space needs than mountain and folding bikes. Once we take stock of your bikes, we can move on to the next step: deciding where to set up bike storage solutions for your garage.

We Evaluate Your Existing Garage for Possible Bike Storage Space

As we look at your garage setup, we use a critical eye to evaluate if there is any space large enough to accommodate all of your bikes. If there isn’t a natural option for standard floor bike storage, we look for other storage spaces like the garage walls or ceiling. These areas are excellent choices for space-saving garage bike storage when you have limited floor space.

Are There Limitations We Need to Consider?

Before we finalize your garage bike storage design plan, we also consider if there are any limitations to the potential area, making sure everyone, including kids, can reach their bike. If we choose to put bike storage on your garage ceiling, will they hang too low and be in the way of your vehicles? Will we have to block any other stored items to accommodate your bikes? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we might want to choose a different location for a bike storage rack for your garage.

Deciding Where to Place Your Garage Bike Storage

After we evaluate your space, we’ll decide where we can add bike storage solutions for the garage. The best way for us to do this is to measure potential spaces as well as the length, width, and height of your bikes. This will help us determine if the chosen area will actually fit all of your bikes and help you reach the ultimate goal of a better-organized garage.
