Summer has finally arrived, and for those in the Detroit area, that means it’s time to get those cars and motorcycles out of the garage and onto the road. You may have spent the winter and spring rebuilding or restoring a vintage car or bike, and all you want to do now is go for a nice, long ride on the highway. At EZ Storage®, we can help you find the ideal self-storage option for your motorcycle between rides, or for when you need to park it inside for a few weeks at a time.

Tuning Up the Bike

Checking the spark plugs will let you know if the motorcycle will start, and looking at the oil level will ensure that the engine runs smoothly once you have the bike started. If the shifter was sticking last time you rode, or you noticed that the brakes were a bit touchy, take a few days to make the necessary repairs before you hit the road. You want your rides to be fun, but you also want them to be safe.

Safely Storing Your Bike

Summer is likely a busy time around your house, and parking your motorcycle in the garage may not be the best option. The kids are getting their bikes and toys out of the garage every day, and the last thing you want is for one of them to knock the bike over and possibly be hurt. You may also need the space for your everyday car or truck, or you might be using the garage as a workspace for your summer remodeling projects. Whatever the case may be, a self-storage unit can be a great alternative for your motorcycle, especially if you only have time to ride on the weekends.

Reserving Seasonal Storage

However, if you’re going to be gone for a few weeks on vacation, or if the weather doesn’t cooperate, we can keep your bike safe until you need it again. Once summer has ended and you want to park the bike for the fall and winter, we can help you find the right seasonal storage options. Our leases are always month to month, so you only pay for the time you need. Even though summer has just begun, reserving a unit now will ensure that you have a space once the riding season ends.
