Life’s better with a little adrenaline.

RecNation offers reliable and affordable ATV storage options tailored to your needs. Find your nearest RecNation to take the first steps today!
Benefits of ATV Storage
You may think it’s easier to store your ATV at home, but there are actually several benefits to keeping your wheels in one of our storage centers. Aside from the simple curb appeal factor of not taking up space in your driveway, garage, or yard, RecNation facilities also offer increased protection from the elements and convenient round-the-clock access, among other amenities.
You might not care if the old four-wheeler you take mudding gets some rain on it, but you don’t want your newer vehicles taking a beating from rainfall, hail, or other extreme weather conditions. And even if the sky is free of clouds, harmful rays from the sun can damage your ride’s paint. Storing your ATV at a RecNation facility eliminates the fear of unnecessary weather damage and provides you with peace of mind that your vehicle is protected from the outside elements.
In addition to protecting your ATV from the weather, RecNation also operates with high-quality security measures in order to ensure your property is protected. Our facilities are fully fenced, and most offer keypad entry alongside 24/7 video recording. Many of our facilities offer closed-in car storage in addition to partially covered and uncovered units.
There may be enough space in your garage or shed to cram in your ATV, but why deal with that? Renting a storage unit for your ATV is a simple way to free up some real estate at your home and eliminate any unnecessary hassle in getting to your wheels. You can also identify a RecNation storage facility near your favorite trail park or other riding areas in order to cut down on time spent getting from hauling your unit out to sliding behind the wheel.

Preparing Your ATV for Long-term Storage
Before you store your ATV with RecNation, there are some important steps you should take to ensure your vehicle is ready for hibernation. Here are some ATV storage preparation tips:
Cleaning Your ATV
If you’re storing anything away, you should always clean it beforehand. This is especially true for your ATV. The first step is the most basic: throwing away any trash in your cup holders, wiping down your seat area, and cleaning off any obvious signs of mud or debris. You’ll also want to do a full wash of the outside of your ATV and lubricate any of the parts that need to be greased up before hitting the shelf for a while. You should also add a layer of protectant to plastic panels and parts just as you would after any regular day of riding.
Maintenance for Your ATV
Keeping your ATV in good condition is important all the time, but certain steps should be taken before storing your vehicle for long periods of time, including:
- Drain the fuel tank and/or add stabilizer
- Change oil if necessary
- Clean out the air filter
- Disconnect the battery and store it separately
- Cover muffler outlets to keep out moisture and pests
- Elevate tires off the ground or rotate tires frequently
- Cover ATV to protect from dust and damage
