Does it need planning permission?
The Secure-A-Bike Garage is not a permanent structure therefore it needs no planning permission. However, if you intend to install the Secure-A-Bike unit in the front garden, it would be in your own interest to contact you local planning department to confirm that you are not contravening any local planning laws.
If I move can I take it with me?
Yes! It will take about an hour to disassemble and about an hour and a half to reassemble. You will need a friend to help you; it takes two people to handle the panels. We had one customer who moved his three times in one year.

The Racer weighs a 350 kilos and the Heritage weighs 500 kilos fully assembled.
Will it effect my insurance?

Do I need a side or centre stand?
