Motorcycle Storage in Idaho

You’ve finally purchased the motorcycle of your dreams, and you can’t wait to hit the open road, cruising through the Treasure Valley in style. But with all your focus on your grand motorcycle adventures, you might’ve forgotten to think about logistics, like where you’re going to store your motorcycle when you’re not using it.

We don’t have to remind you about Idaho’s weather. Between the Gem State’s snowy winters and toasty summers, you’re not going to want to leave your wheels out to brave the elements. That’s why so many motorcyclists turn to motorcycle storage units.

Here at Stor-It, we feature a wide range of motorcycle storage units in Idaho. Read our guide below to find out more about the benefits of renting these units and how you can find one for your own bike.

Why Use a Motorcycle Storage Unit?

Your motorcycle is your pride and joy, which means you should take proper care when storing it. For instance, you don’t want the sun shining down on your leather seats, and you certainly don’t want to expose your bike to torrential downpours or snowstorms.

That’s why you should go with a motorcycle storage rental. When you rent a unit, you can rest easy knowing outdoor elements won’t touch your bike. After all, tough weather conditions can do a number on your bike. UV rays can damage the paint, crack the leather, and even impact the fuel inside, while excessive rain can rust and corrode metal parts.

But when you go with a rental unit, your bike will have a roof overhead, so you won’t ever have to give the weather a second thought.

But you might be wondering, Can’t I just store my motorcycle in my garage? Yes, that’s always a possibility, but motorcycle storage units come with an added perk. You can rent a climate-controlled unit, which maintains a specific temperature and humidity range in your rental at all times.

This means if there’s a heatwave or blizzard outside, it won’t affect the temperature or humidity inside your unit. If you can’t control the temperature in your own garage, then it might be a good idea to take advantage of this storage unit benefit.

What Size Motorcycle Storage Do I Need?

Deciding what size unit you need for your motorcycle depends on how much space you want.

If your motorcycle is the only item you plan to store in your unit, you may go for one of the smaller, more compact units. At Stor-It, the smallest unit that will fit your bike is our 5x10 option, but we also have slightly bigger ones that measure 5x12.

Alternatively, if you’d like to store other items in your unit along with your motorcycle, then you’ll want to size up. Depending on how many belongings you plan to store, you might go with our 10x10 and 8x12 options. But if you want to store another vehicle or two in there, then our commercial-sized units might be a better fit. They come in spacious sizes like 10x30, 11x30, 10x36, and 11x56.

When it comes to the available storage unit sizes for motorcycles, the options are practically endless!

How Can I Prepare My Motorcycle for Storage?

Now that you’ve decided to rent a storage unit for motorcycles near you, all you have to do is drive your bike right up to the unit, right? Not so fast.

Before storing your bike, follow this short checklist to help keep it in tip-top shape:

  • Clean your bike of any dirt, dust, and debris.
  • Check battery fluid levels.
  • Prep the fuel system. Depending on the kind of bike you have, this may involve running a fuel treatment through the carburetor systems or treating the fuel system with an additive.
  • Empty engine oil and replace it with fresh oil.
  • Place your bike on a center stand to prevent extended pressure on the tires. If this isn’t an option, slightly over-inflate your tires to prevent flat spots from developing.
  • Put plastic bags over intake and exhaust openings.
  • Place a fitted motorcycle cover over your bike.
