Richmond Hill Winter Storage

There are a number of considerations to take into account when thinking about winter storage. You want to ensure that you properly prepare items like motorcycles so that they are safe over the winter months and ready to use come spring or summer. Depending on the items you're storing, you may want to consider a climate-controlled storage unit, so that your electronics, appliances, batteries and other valuables are not at risk of extreme cold damage.

James Snow Self-Storage offers secure, affordable year-round secured indoor, outdoor and container storage units to the residents of Richmond Hill and the surrounding areas of Vaughan, Markham and Newmarket areas.

When preparing certain items, like a motorcycle or a car for winter storage, there are a number of steps to take. Always check your user manual or manufacturer's website and closely follow the instructions specific to your motorcycle or vehicle model. Following your manufacturer's instructions on preparing cars and bikes for winter storage can help you avoid:

  • Build up of rust from moisture left on your vehicle
  • Gum or varnish deposits from unstabilized fuel, which can plug carburetor passageways
  • Your tires from developing permanent flat spots
  • Old oil contains acid, moisture and other contaminants that can damage your engine while it's in storage
  • Air space in the fuel tank can cause the fuel to become contaminated

Also, note that all vehicle batteries should be stored in a room that stays above freezing and off the floor, so you may want to consider a climate-controlled unit if storing your vehicle's battery over the winter months.

During the time your car or motorcycle is in storage, you should consider doing the following:

  • Once a week – turn the engine over a few times and visually inspect your vehicle for any oil or fuel leaks.
  • Once a month – recharge the battery. If your battery isn't kept fully charged it can become permanently damaged and may need to be replaced.

At James Snow Self-Storage we provide safe and secure winter storage for your seasonal items. Our climate-controlled units and around the clock security provide you with ease of mind. We also provide winter maintenance including snow and ice removal to keep your vehicles in their best condition.
