You won't find a more affordable and convenient option for your motorcycle storage in the Ypsilanti and Belleville area. Please call U-Lock-It Self Storage today to learn about our 10 X 10 unit availability. In the meantime, here are a couple of motorcycle storage tips.
1. Don't forget fuel stabilizer
After filling your tank with fuel, add the optimal amount of fuel stabilizer. Doing this will protect your carburetor's parts from gas that has deteriorated. Don't forget to let your bike run for a couple of minutes after adding the fuel stabilizer.
2. Time for an Oil Change
Engine oil changes over time, and not for the better. Make sure you change out your oil before storage to avoid any erosion or damage. Also, don't forget to change the filter plug while you're at it.
3. Avoid sun damage with our 10 x 10 units
Sun in the winter? Yes, we do have an occasional sunny day, which can spell bad news for motorcycles stored near a window. Our 10 x 10 storage units will protect your bike from sunlight that can damage leather and fade paint. We also suggest using a fitted cover for your bike.
4. Clean and Wax
Protect your motorcycle from any moisture damage by giving it a good clean and wax before putting it in storage. Just make sure your bike is dry before applying the wax.
We hope these tips are helpful, and we look forward to keeping your motorcycle safe and secure during winter storage.
As we enjoy the final weeks of fall, it's time to start preparing for winter. From winter tires to purchasing salt for your sidewalk, winter can be a lot of work. Winter can also be cluttered. As we start to spend more time inside, it's essential to stay organized. One way to accomplish this is to consider self-storage in our Ypsilanti storage facility. While self-storage is a great option year-round to declutter, it's particularly useful in the winter. Here are typical items people tend to store in the colder months:
Lawn Furniture - While it's sad to see your lawn chairs and tables go, you'll ensure they aren't damaged by cold and wet weather.
Summer Clothing - Yes, there are the occasional Michiganders who will be caught with shorts on in forty-degree weather, but for the rest of us, it's time to put away your summer clothes. We recommend storing them in plastic bins, which will protect quality. Doing this will open up much-needed drawer space for sweaters.
Lawn care equipment - It's time to swap those lawnmowers for snowblowers. Keep your spring/summer lawn care equipment safe and out of the way with self-storage.
Decorations - Our self-storage units are great for keeping your summer and fall holiday decorations safe.
Small vehicles - From motorcycles to ATVs, our storage facility is a secure and convenient place to store vehicles that don't see much use in the winter.
We know that in Michigan, the weather fluctuates, which is why our 24-hour gate access allows you to access your items when needed.
We look forward to assisting you with your winter storage needs. Please call U-Lock-It today.
