A motorcycle is a valuable investment, so bike owners naturally want to make sure that that investment is well taken care of. Long-term exposure to the elements can cause corrosion, a motorcyclist’s nightmare, but it’s simple enough to protect your bike from nature’s fury. By installing a carport, motorcycle enthusiasts can protect their bike and have a nice, shaded place to work on it, ensuring that it will be in great shape next time you want to hit the road.
Budgeting for a Small Carport for Motorcycle Storage
Alan’s Factory Outlet makes it possible to affordably install a small carport for motorcycle storage. Our sturdy storage structures have reasonable prices, and they’re easy to install. If you have the tools and time, you can certainly DIY this installation, but we also include free installation in select states. You also may need to consider a few other factors while budgeting for the cost of your motorcycle carport, such as:
- Foundation costs
- Zoning or permit fees
- Additional materials fees
Popular Motorcycle Carport Options
Customize a Metal Motorcycle Carport
When you shop with Alan’s Factory Outlet, you can customize your carport in a variety of ways. You can change the color and roof style to make an attractive structure that looks nice next to your house. And of course, you can also customize the size of your new metal carport. To make sure that you choose the right size for your carport, measure the motorcycle you plan to store. If you have more than one, line them up with appropriate space in between and measure the width.
You can also decide whether you want to partially enclose your new motorcycle carport: These structures are open on all sides by default, but you can add 3-foot panels or fully enclosed sides to give your bike extra protection. Choose an open, portable motorcycle carport, or enclose yours to make a full garage and anchor it to a firm foundation: The choice is yours!
Preparing the Ground for Your Carport
Grass, gravel, and dirt work just fine for a motorcycle carport floor. Gravel is the option we usually recommend, but no matter what type of surface you choose, you’ll need to ensure that it’s level. You can also install a concrete slab for extra durability and stability, but it’s not necessary. If the carport is installed and anchored correctly, it will be supported on the ground as safely as on cement.
