Warmer weather will be here before you know it, which is exciting news for cyclists and bicycle retailers nationwide. But as anyone who owns a bike shop or rents out equipment can tell you – bikes are tough to store! They’re large, bulky and evidently consume a decent portion of floor space. And on top of that, they’re not known for staying put.
While most rely on standard bike racks, bicycle hoists, bike hangers, bike stands, and pulley systems to store their inventory, these options come with limitations. They’re neither cost-effective nor suitable for keeping heavy bikes and equipment out of harm’s way. If you’re looking to purchase a system that’s secure and easily accessible, consider getting a motorized bike lift storage system from Lift and Store. Below, we’ll outline their advantages and what sets them apart from the competition.
Why Should You Look Into Overhead Bike Storage Racks?
Unlike most bike storage options, an overhead ceiling bike rack fastens directly to the ceiling above your storage space, leaving more room to store essentials like cycling shoes, cleats, and helmets. Plus, rather than worrying about your biking equipment getting scratched or damaged on the floor, this heavy-duty machinery keeps each individual bicycle up high and separated with secure bike hooks. Each bicycle lift also comes with a locking mechanism. Once your inventory is loaded on, the lift moves up and overhead with the touch of a button. Then when you’re ready to retrieve it, another click moves it back down securely to ground level.
Aside from their security and space-saving benefits, a bike lift system can also spare your workplace from contributing to the prevailing number of hazardous ladder accidents happening every year. You won’t have to worry about employees climbing up dangerous ladders to unload a bike and risking an injury. Our motorized lifts take care of the heavy lifting for you.
