Why use motorbike storage?

Over the 30+ years that we have been helping Queenslanders safely store their belongings, the team here at Fort Knox Storage have seen a range of reasons why our customers look to us for motorbike storage.

The most common reason why customers look for secure storage is to protect their motorbike from the outdoors. We understand that finding space in the garage can often be difficult and leaving your motorbike outside isn’t ideal, as being exposed to the elements can result in permanent damage. As the weather in Queensland can often be unpredictable, one thing you can be sure of is that your motorbike will be safe and secure in one of our many locations.

Another common reason our customers use motorbike storage is how cost effective it can actually be. Not only do you get the comfort of knowing your motorbike is well looked after, your insurer may reduce your premium if you are storing your vehicle in a secure storage unit, so the total costs may actually be cheaper than you think.

When it comes to security, having your motorbike stored at a facility with 24/7 CCTV, pin-coded gate access and on-site managers ensures that your pride and joy is in safe hands. Security is one of our top priorities, so you can rest assured knowing your motorbike is protected from damage, theft and vandalism with Fort Knox Storage.

Fort Knox Storage is an easy, secure, and affordable way to store your motorbike, car, ute and more. For storage enquiries contact us today or locate your closest facility.

Preparing your motorbike for long term storage

1. Thoroughly Clean Your Motorcycle

If you plan on leaving your motorcycle in storage for more than a month it is important you prepare it appropriately to ensure it can run smoothly once it is ready for action. The first thing you need to ensure is that it is completely clean before you store it. Otherwise, any dust or debris left behind can cause permanent damage to your paint work and any smells on your seat will be incredibly difficult to remove. After thoroughly rinsing and washing, leave your motorcycle in the sun to ensure it is completely dry before securing it in any confined space.

2. Change Your Oil

Now that your bike is clean, it is time to take care of some more mechanical aspects. It is best practice to replace your engine oil, as your motor oil acts as both a lubricant and to help the filtration system of the motorcycle. Therefore, it is important before storage to empty and replace any used oil, as dirty motor oil will create carbon that is suspended within it and will later rise to the surface causing excessive corrosion and etching on soft metal components (e.g., transmission gears and bearings).

3. Empty Your Fuel Tank

While you are changing the oil, you may be wondering if you should store your motorcycle with a full tank of fuel. A full tank of fuel is a risk of fire or leakage and is prohibited in a storage facility, so you will be required to empty the tank before storing.

4. Unplug The Batteries

We also recommend that you unplug the batteries of your motorcycle prior to storage to remove any potential hazards and acid leakage. Unplugging your battery is an important way to keep your motorcycle safe and keep it from draining.

5. Consider Your Tires

Leaving your motorcycle in the one spot for prolonged periods of time with its weight completely dependent in the same area can cause the development of a permanent flat spot on your tires. This can be prevented by purchasing a service stand to leave your motorbike on, or alternatively over inflating the tires slightly.

It is also a good idea to move your motorcycle every now and again so that the tires do not stay in the exact same position for too long.

6. Cover Your Motorcycle

Covering your motorcycle will safeguard its paint and body from dust along with minimising moisture build up that can contribute to corrosion and rust.

To keep rodents and insects out of your air filters and exhaust pipes ensure you cover up the air intake and exhaust openings with plastic bags or motorcycle exhaust plugs. It is also important to remember not to leave any electrical sockets open that might be permeated by water.
