Most Frequently Asked Questions

I want one NOW! How long does it take?

The lead time on fabrication is typically 6-8 weeks.  Once your order is accepted, we can confirm delivery dates in more detail.

What are the payment terms?

We require 50% deposit to place your order and the remainder is due prior to installation.

What needs to be in place to accept delivery?

Your site does need preparation before the Bikebox arrives.  We will discuss site preparation as part of our free initial survey.

What is it made of?

In the main, mild steel in a structural gauge

Does it come looking that colour?

The mild steel is left to oxidise for 6 - 12 months to get a rusted finish

Is there maintenance?

Yes, after the desired finish is reached, it will need a finish put on it and then that should be done every 2-3 years

Can I have it finished in a different colour?

Yes, we can discuss options.  Priced on application.

Do I have to assemble it myself?

No, it comes assembled, but you will need to put the final finish on it once it's oxidised, and as part of maintenance. 

How many bikes will the bikebox hold

Our design team will discuss your requirements, but typically 4 bikes if that is all that is being stored 

Is it just for bikes?

No! It's been designed to store the rubbish bins, the baby prams and push chairs and the DIY tools.  Possibly all of it at the same time!

What are the internal/external dimensions?

There are slight differences between internal and external measurements, but all measures will be confirmed for your site as part of our design process.  Contact us for more details.

My garden isn't actually a 'typical Victorian terrace' - can you make it so it suits my place?

Yes!  We can design a solution that works for you. 

I'm not sure if I live in a 'typical' Victorian terrace.  How do I find out?

We conduct a free initial survey to see if this is the right solution prior to any orders being accepted.   

What have planning got to say about it? 

Every borough is different.  We have experience with some of the planning departments across London and can help you figure out the best way forward.

I live in a conservation zone, does that mean I can't have one?

Not necessarily, though you will need to engage with your planning authority.  We can discuss our experience with this. 

Is it really just a 'London thing'?

No.  Not really.  We will talk to anyone who wants some of this.
