Motorcycle Security Tips – Garage

A decent locked garage  will put off all but the most serious of professional thieves. An extra barrier to break will cost a thief extra time, incurring further risk. Keeping you bikes garaged will likely earn you a nice insurance discount, compared to parking on the street or a driveway. However, on the flip side, once in your garage a thief can work unnoticed on other security measures.

ensure your garage doesn’t contain handy tools a thief could use to steal your bike

However, do still keep your bikes locked up within the garage, ideally with a ground anchor in floor or wall of garage. Also ensure your garage doesn’t contain handy tools a thief could use to steal your bike either and similarly make sure the keys to your bike aren’t accessible to someone in the garage!

A locked shed can also be fairly effective too, but note many insurers won’t accept a wooden shed as sufficient to earn a discount. So be wary if you’ve stipulated your wooden shed as a ‘locked garage’ on your policy, you don’t want to find out it’s void when you put in a claim.
