Store Your Motorcycle in a Storage Unit

Storing your motorcycle in a storage unit is a great way to make sure that it remains in tip-top shape throughout the year. Check out the information below to learn more about motorcycle storage.

Uses for Motorcycle Storage

  • Winter Motorcycle Storage: If you live in an area with a true winter, renting a storage unit is an easy way to keep your bike out of the way and safe during the off-season.
  • Living at an Apartment: If you live at an apartment that doesn't have garages available, renting a storage unit is a better option than letting your bike sit outside, exposed to the elements.
  • Weekend Riding: If you only take your bike out on weekends or for an occasional joyride, it's common to rent a storage unit to save some space at home.
  • Long-Term Motorcycle Storage: Military deployment, life changes such as having a child, and moving to an area where you'll primarily use public transportation are instances when you may need long-term storage.

Best Storage Unit for Storing a Motorcycle

If you're looking for the protection of a garage-like storage space when you're not using your motorcycle, a drive-up storage unit is your best option. With this type of storage unit, you can drive your motorcycle right into the unit, pull down the door, lock it, and go. And when you're ready to take it out of storage, you can back it out and head out.

A 5x10 storage unit is generally big enough to house one motorcycle and any accessories you may have, like helmets or jackets. However, if you’ll be storing multiple motorcycles, you may want to look into a larger unit, such as a 10x10. To get a better feel for the size of a 5x10 or 10x10 storage unit, visit our storage unit size guide.

Motorcycle Storage Unit Pricing

With 5x10 to 10x10 being the storage unit size range for storing one or two motorcycles, the monthly cost to store your bike should fit pretty closely within the price ranges below:

  • 10x10 Storage Unit Prices: This storage unit size ranges between $80 and $100 a month in smaller markets and goes for $80 and $185 in larger markets.

Motorcycle Storage FAQs

Can I leave my car at the storage facility when I take my bike out to ride?

This depends on the storage facility. Some will be perfectly fine with you doing this. Others don't have a ton of additional unused space where a car can be left, so they might not allow it. If this is something that you'll need, you can give our team a call, and they can help you find a bike-friendly facility that makes it easy to park your car while you take your motorcycle out for a ride. Your other option would be to rent a larger storage unit for your motorcycle that can fit a car when you take trips to the storage facility to take your motorcycle out.

Can I take my motorcycle out for a ride whenever I'd like?

Different storage facilities have varying access or gate hours. Standard access hours align with regular business hours, ranging from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Extended access hours range from 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. 24-hour access is available at some facilities but isn't as common. If you want more flexibility, keep your eye out for a storage facility with extended or 24-hour access.

Will my motorcycle be secure in self storage?

Storage facilities take plenty of precautions to keep your belongings safe while they're in storage. Take a look at the different security measures used by storage facilities to understand what's available and what to look for.
