Ive be asked to shoot the inside of a small shop that sell bikes etc, ive a 800d and 18 - 55mm lense but i dont think the lense will do the job. i would like to buy a wide angle lense new or secondhand. i have tripod and shutter release and a plash and triggers but unsure as to what lense would be best suited. Any suggestions would be great.

How much are you earning for the job? If it is a one time job paying $100.00 or $200.00 USD it would be hard justifying buying a new lens for it. Your lens should do fine. Then if you see where you may line up several jobs doing this and realize you need a better lens, then start looking for a lens that is better suited than what you have to get the job done.

You can rent a lens. Especially for a one off shoot.

I have the Tokina AT-X 124 AF Pro DX 12-24mm f/4 that I was able to score new for $160. Every so often you can catch a deal.

I've used a crop camera and an 18-55mm kit lens for interiors. But if the space is too cramped, it might indeed not work.

Just make sure your camera is level/parallel with the ground so that you won't get keystoning.

The tokina 11-16/2.8 is a fantastic lens but will limit you to EF-s mounts technically. Which is fine with your current body. But 12-24/4 is the better future proof option.

Not quite true! While designed for APS-C bodies, that lens will indeed fit any Canon with EF mount...Canon is the only vendor who USES the EFS mount on lenses.
I just mounted the Tokina 11-16mm on my 5D body, it fits just fine, and in the viewfinder I can see that anything shorter than about 16mm would vignette the image.

Another thing to consider is lighting, probably more important than a new lens. Shooting inside with poor lighting can be a nightmare and using a built in flash in a bike shop is going to be a shadow nightmare. Give careful consideration to how you are going to light the scene.

I didnt want to confuse OP which is why I said technically. I use that lens on my 5D4 quite a bit.
