Apartment living is convenient for so many reasons, but unfortunately, space isn’t one of them. Sometimes, you’re hard-pressed fitting all your furniture comfortably, and if you don’t have street parking or a secure garage, you may feel pressured to say goodbye to your motorbike. Fortunately for you, Dynamoto is the answer to your prayers. Our innovative, revolutionary stand allows you to fit your motorcycle into a small apartment parking space. Alternatively, you can use the stand to store your motorcycle in the apartment itself!
Wait, can I store a motorbike in an apartment?
You might be wondering, ‘Is it illegal to store a motorcycle in an apartment?’. While no law states you can’t store your motorcycle in an apartment complex, the answer depends significantly on the body corporate by-laws of your building. If there is no current by-law stating you can’t keep your motorcycle in your apartment, it might be a good idea to develop a plan outlining how you intend to safely keep your bike inside. Discuss your methods of minimising fire hazards and protecting the safety of other tenants before parking indoors. You may also want to show the body corporate committee Dynamoto’s motorcycle dolly for small spaces, so they can visualise the logistics of keeping a motorcycle in an apartment.
4 tips to safely store your motorbike in your apartment
The most important thing to consider when keeping your motorbike in an apartment is the safety of yourself, your property, and those living around you. Here are four tips to help you store your bike safely.
- Keep it on the patio or balcony. If you have an outdoor space to store your bike, take advantage of that. Your property will be safer if your motorcycle is kept outdoors. If you’re worried about sun exposure, invest in a dust jacket to keep on the bike when not in use.
- If you’re keeping it indoors long-term, take the necessary precautions. Whether you’re going away or don’t plan on riding for a while, if you intend to store your bike indoors long-term, you need to think about ways to minimise the safety risks. For example, drain the fuel and the oil and remove the battery before putting it in your Dynamoto stand.
- Make sure body corporate is aware. While the old adage might suggest you should ask for forgiveness rather than permission, when it comes to storing a motorcycle in an apartment, your body corporate needs to know. They have the best intentions for everyone living in your complex in mind, so they’ll help you find a solution that works for everyone. They may have even helped another bike enthusiast with a similar issue, so they may have valuable advice you can use to your advantage.
- Use a Dynamoto bike stand. Dynamoto allows you to store your bike in an upright, stable position, and the side-rolling multi-directional wheels provide 180 degrees of rotation. Plus, they’re designed to roll easily on a range of surfaces, including rough concrete, asphalt, and tiles. With precision sideways rolling, you won’t have to worry about damaging any walls or doors around you.
