Choosing a Two Tier Bike Shelter

The amount of accessible space at your bike storage location is crucial. It will aid in determining whether a two-tier bike rack will fulfil your unique requirements.

Although less aisle space is possible, 48 inches is the absolute minimum. Loading and unloading bikes from racks and manoeuvring them within the space may be challenging otherwise. 

Then there’s the issue of head clearance to consider. To function properly, Two Tier Bike Shelters require an average of eight and a half feet of room above them.

Prices might range between a few hundred to a few thousand pounds. Then it’s simply a matter of determining where the final sum fits into your budget.
