Self-storage can be a great option for motorcycle owners who need extra space to store their bikes. However, there are a few essential tips to keep in mind to ensure that your motorcycle stays in good condition while in storage. Clean your motorcycle before storing it. This includes washing it, cleaning the chain and gears, and making sure there is no dirt or debris on the bike. Use a motorcycle cover to protect your bike from dust and other environmental elements. A cover will also keep your motorcycle out of direct sunlight, which can cause fading and cracking of the paint and plastic. Be sure to keep cardboard underneath your motorcycle while in storage to catch any accidental fluid leaks while it is parked. If possible, store your motorcycle on a stand or lift, this will keep the tires off the ground and prevent flat spotting. Make sure your motorcycle is properly secured before storing it. Use tie-downs or straps to keep the bike from falling over or shifting during transport. Consider storing your motorcycle in a climate-controlled unit. This will help keep the temperature and humidity at a steady level, which will prevent rust and corrosion. You will also want to be sure to complete any maintenance necessary ahead of time. Routine maintenance is essential to keeping your motorcycle in good working condition. Some of the most important maintenance tasks to perform on a regular basis include: Changing the oil and oil filter: This is one of the most important maintenance tasks to perform on a motorcycle. The oil lubricates the engine and helps to keep it running smoothly. It is recommended to change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles or three months, whichever comes first. Checking and maintaining the air filter: A clean air filter is essential for proper engine performance. Check the air filter every few months and clean or replace it as needed. Inspecting and adjusting the chain: A properly adjusted chain will help to improve the bike's performance and increase its lifespan. Inspect ...

Here at Modern Storage, security is a significant priority. We provide a secure safe place for our tenants to store all valuables without worry. Here are a few examples of how Modern Storage goes the extra mile to keep your mind at ease when storing with us. At Modern Storage, we always make it a point to know what is happening at our facility. Using over 100 cameras, we have eyes not only within our buildings but also around the entirety of the facility. We display these different camera angles in our front office on our TVs to show our tenants that we are continuously monitoring the property and keeping an eye on their belongings. Another layer of security that Modern Storage offers is we give our tenants complete control over the customization of their gate code. Modern Storage is a gated facility that can only be accessed using a specific gate code, and each of our buildings also requires a code to access the inside. The fantastic thing about Modern Storage is that we let you completely customize your gate code to make sure that it is easy for you to remember while also being unique enough that no one else will know your code. At Modern Storage, we believe in not only having a secure facility but also having secure units. For each storage unit, we require a specific style of cylinder lock that is drastically more secure than a standard padlock. The uniqueness of our cylinder lock is that it goes inside the latch, so attempts to cut the lock are next to impossible. Also, each tenant is given two keys only compatible with their specific cylinder lock. Lastly, Modern Storage believes that to keep constant surveillance on the property effectively and your belongings, we need to have staff always present. To ensure this, we are here every day, Monday – Saturday, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Sunday, 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Every day we are here at the ...
