An ATV is an exciting and expensive investment. An ATV requires protection from the elements to avoid rust, unnecessary maintenance, and safety issues. There are numerous ways to protect your shiny new ATV from the elements, and one of the best is with a quality enclosed shed.
Why should I store my ATV in a shed?
Many ATV owners wonder if a shed is safe to store an ATV. However, builders often design sheds to store heavy machinery like riding lawn mowers and ATVs. Some are built explicitly for ATVs. They have strong floors, plenty of space, and doors that make inserting and removing the ATV easy.
An ATV is safe inside any shed with locking doors. For this reason, plastic tarp sheds are not ideal because a burglar can easily cut the tarp to remove the vehicle.
The Best Shed for an ATV
Several types of sheds are suitable for ATV storage. They protect the ATV from damage and theft while providing additional storage space for tools, gear, and other supplies.
A garage-style shed is ideal because it is spacious, lockable, and features a roll-up garage door. Pulling your ATV out of a garage-style shed takes seconds and locking it away at night is just as easy.
A barn shed is a quality, affordable option for ATV storage. It’s an aesthetically-pleasing wood shed that is burglar-proof, structurally sound, and customizable to suit the needs of each owner.
A lofted barn shed offers a loft above the ATV storage area for additional items. This can turn your ATV shed into a multi-purpose storage area.
A studio shed typically features a wood frame with vinyl siding. It is structurally sound and asthetically pleasing in the yard or driveway. This style shed is long-lasting, burglar-proof, and resistant to rotting or rust. However, it comes at a higher price tag to protect your ATV.
Preparing Your ATV for Storage
ATV owners should take several steps before driving their ATV into the shed for storage. These steps help preserve the beauty and mechanics of the ATV while preventing damage to the shed.
- Wash and dry the ATV thoroughly
- Ensure the tires are full of air
- Repair any gas or oil leaks
The goal is to keep your ATV and your shed in top condition for as long as possible.
