If the bike is your bae, here are effective tips for secure motorcycle storage


 

Even though bikes are quite robust machines, they need protection from certain elements for their upkeep. And that’s why motorcycle storage is paramount. It’s all about doing the right things with your bike so that it runs on the road with a roar for a longer period. Here are our top tips for effective motorcycle storage. Let’s delve.

For the short run

This section is especially for those who won’t be riding their motor machines for up to 14-15 days. The good news is that you won’t have to do too much work.

First things first, clean your motorbike to avoid mildew attack. And let it go through waxing to restore the paint's health and shine.

Pro tip – use a rubber conditioner to secure your motorcycle against the dampening effects of sun and sand (used for poetic effect, the sand here means dust). Don’t forget to cover your bae!

Ground rule – take the wheels off the ground!

This is often ignored. But trust us when we say that if you religiously follow this, make it a habit, your bike will thank you by staying smooth on the road and you will thank us!

Getting your bike's wheels lifted from the ground means the wheels are protected against the risk of wearing out, softening, and eroding over long periods of inertia. This is usually not a risk factor when you are planning to abandon your bike for say less than 15 days. But, if this is going to be over a long haul or if your motorcycle is going to stay outdoors in the summer on a pavement, consider getting your bike's feet off the ground!

Pro tip 1– You can let the battery stay in the motorcycle. No need to use a stabilizer or some ethanol-free gasoline to prevent fuel drain. Without doing any of this, your fuel will remain topped off!

Pro tip 2 – To avoid not-so-good surprises with your bike, consider storing your motorcycle in your secure garage or parking area.

For the long run

If you’re putting your bike away in storage for a longer period then you need to consider battery upkeep and maintenance. It’s one of the most essential things to effective motorcycle storage over the long haul.

Simplicity is key. So simply take the battery out and reattach it when you are going to hit the road again.

Pro tip - go for a maintenance charger. It is easy to use and connect. It will provide the necessary charge throughout the winter season without damaging your battery.

Ideal motorcycle storage place

It’s indoors! Your motorcycle is the safest and happiest and healthiest when parked inside.

Pro tip – keep your motorcycle away from windows or any such cavities that pose the risk of theft, moisture damage, and paintwork fading out.

Relocating to a smaller place? We’ve got the perfect downsizing tips you need!



How do you trim and move a generation of memories and possessions from a big family house to a compact space? It may seem daunting deciding what to carry along, what to flick away, and of course, dealing with a deluge of emotions especially if you have stayed for a long time. But, our expert tips for moving will help you sail through it all. Let’s delve.

Keep what’s important

When downsizing, ‘less is more’ is the buzzword. Get rid of things that are not important to you. Coronavirus lead pandemic has made us all realise that minimalist living is the way forward. That doesn’t mean you have to comprise your quality of life. So ensure you make arrangements for your must-haves in your new home.

For instance, as you get used to less room inside your new compact abode, you may feel like going out more. Check if the place around your neighbourhood has plenty to offer like recreational hubs like a clubhouse or a tennis court. In this way, you will always have that sense of community.

Office inside home

Moving to a smaller place may put a frown on your face as you wonder – “What about my office space?” Let’s turn that frown upside down. Just find a corner you like and bring in a desk set-up that would fit right. If you want a private room as an office, make sure to check if the new place has enough room.

Pro tip - If nothing works, look for other homes or rent/find a co-working space.

Be open-minded

Moving to a smaller place need not put walls around your mind. Don't feel restricted. You’ll feel lighter and unburdened eventually as you realise how many things that you never needed have been taken off your shoulders! You have a lot of things to fall in love with - less maintenance, no more pressure to host a large number of people, and relocating to urban places. The latter can reduce your car drives in a comforting way and bring you closer to your favourite malls, restaurants and cultural programmes.

How To Check If The Self-Storage Company In Dubai And Abu Dhabi Is Safe?

 




Around 15 years ago, self-storage in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and other bustling cities of UAE was a bit more than a side business. Today self-storage has become one of the most essential services across UAE with ever-increasing customer demand. Having said that, there’s a rise in the number of self-storage players too which raise an important concern – Is my self-storage provider safe? We’ll help you sort that out through this article.

The trust factor

The wisest of the wise would tell you that you feel secure in a relationship when you trust the other person. Similarly, find out whether the customer base of your prospective self-storage in Abu Dhabi or Dubai company is built on trust or clickbait. Are they genuinely satisfied tenants? Does the self-storage provider have a history of creating strong bonds of trust with customers?

Meets every need

Another aspect of a secure self-storage company is its ability to meet customers’ needs in the long and short run. We advise you to choose a company that offers state-of-the-art security features like climate-controlled units, alarms, fences, and 24 hour CCTV. It should have a trained and experienced team of members who make sure they transport your valued possessions safely and securely using the latest packing and unpacking tools. Check if the self-storage company bases its services on sensitivity to individual needs and treats its clients and their goods with great care.

Social status

Don’t think for something as physical as a self-storage unit it need not score high on social. In this age of social media, it pays to check if the self-storage company has a good digital presence. Does the provider show signs of friendly, truthful, and responsive conversations on Facebook, Twitter, and other social platforms? Does it talk to its customers rather than talking at them? 

Choose a self-storage company that has a refreshingly relaxed and engaging dialogue with its customers, answering all their queries, and addressing all their concerns promptly. If it provides storage tips and other related solutions in their blogs, that’s a plus!
