Big Item Storage’s units hold all kinds of large items. They’re a great place to store vehicles of all kinds when you’re not using them, including ATVs. Keeping your ATVs in good shape is key, especially when storing long term. Here are a few helpful tips to make sure your ATV retains its value while being stored.

First, keep it clean! Any dirt, even small bits, can cause rust when introduced to moisture. Thoroughly clean your ATV from top to bottom to keep this from happening. You’ll also want to drain the fuel tank and run the engine to burn off any remaining fuel. At the very least, you should turn the fuel valve off and add gasoline stabilizer to fresh gas. Do not add the stabilizer to old gas.

Even when not in use, batteries will drain energy. So it’s a good idea to remove the battery all together and store it separately. You’ll have to charge the battery about once every month to keep it maintained.

Despite the secure storage we provide, sometimes moisture and vermin will still find their way in. To keep your ATV protected, secure plastic bags over your mufflers. You don’t want any nasty surprises when you get your ATV back from storage.
