Cycle Storage FAQs

Where can I position a cycle shelter?

It is advisable to locate your cycle shelter in a flat level area, ideally concrete. It should also be easily accessible for users and for security reasons be clearly visible.

How will I receive my cycle shelter?

Our range of bike shelters are delivered flat packed on a pallet. Please make sure there is sufficient access and space at your site when our delivery vehicle comes to offload the pallet.

How do I assemble a cycle shelter?

Tamstar flat packed shelters include fully assemble instructions and will normally require at least 2 competent people to assemble and install. You will also require a range of relevant tools to complete the installation to the required standard.

Does Tamstar offer an on-site installation service?

For most areas in the UK, we can offer an experienced contractor to install your cycle shelter.

How long will it take to assemble a cycle shelter?

This will depend on the size and type of shelter, but on average it will normally take approximately 6 hours. This does not include time for any ground preparation.

Does the cycle shelter come with cycle or scooter stands?

All our cycle shelter range can be supplied with industry standard Sheffield toast rack and scooter stands.
