Temporary Storage for Motorcycles, RVs, Campers, and ATVs

Do you get that sinking feeling when temperatures drop and snow covers the ground? Parking your summer vehicles for winter is never easy! But knowing that they are safe and securely stowed can give you peace of mind. Here are some of the steps to take to make sure that your motorbikes, RVs, campers, and ATVs will be ready when spring rolls around:

  • Make sure your insurance is up to date.
  • Find a good spot for parking your vehicle. It should be securely locked, dry, and sheltered. Avoid parking near a window where it can get sun-damaged.
  • Change the oil.
  • Charge the battery, or remove it altogether and trickle charge it during the time it’s being stored.
  • Top up brake, clutch, and coolant fluids. Pay particular attention to anti-freeze levels. 
  • With motorcycles, lubricate the throttle, kickstand, shifter, and clutch cables.
  • Fill your motorcycle, ATV, or RV up with gas, and just before parking, run some fuel stabilizer through the engine, following the instructions on the container.
  • Fill tires up to maximum PSI. Rotate them once in a while if possible.
  • Wash, dry, and wax your vehicle to help prevent rust.
  • Whenever possible, cover the vehicle with a snug-fitting but breathable cover.
