As an ATV owner, few things are quite as exciting as getting out for a ride with your friends. Of course, real life often gets in the way of those rides, so your ATV is bound to spend at least some of its life in storage. To make sure it stays in good condition, consider these top storage ideas.

Understanding the Goals
Before we get into our list of ATV storage ideas, we’d like to first cover the goals you should have in mind when selecting the right storage solution for your vehicle. These goals will make it much easier to figure out where you should be looking for storage, and what viable options may be available. We’ve boiled this topic down to three key points:
- Protection from the elements. You don’t want to leave your ATV out in the weather all year long. Sure, it’s meant to work out in the conditions, but it will degrade quickly if you leave it to sit in the rain, snow, wind, cold, etc. Finding a place to park your ATV inside will go a long way toward keeping it in top condition for as long as possible.
- Security. If possible, you want to park your ATV in a location that will be hard for others to access. No location is 100% secure but parking it out of sight and behind a locked door will discourage criminal activity.
- Convenience. It will be hard to use your ATV regularly if it is stored in an inconvenient location. For example, you might be able to rent a storage unit that will allow you to store an ATV, but you’ll have to visit that location every time you want to use it.
As you think about how you’ll store your ATV, keep these three points in mind. You might not be able to cover each of these three perfectly, but pick the storage option that works the best for you and offers the best protection for your ATV.
Top Storage Ideas
#1 – Garage Storage
This is the top item on our list because it is the best bet. If possible, store your ATV in a garage, as this approach will get great marks on each of our three points. It will be completely inside while stored, so the weather won’t be a factor. The ATV will be out of sight and locked up when the garage door is closed, and it will be easy to roll that door up and ride away when the time comes. As a bonus, most garages have space not only for the ATV, but also for the accessories and other items that come along with it. If you don’t have room in an attached garage to store your ATV, building a detached metal garage elsewhere on your property is a great option.
#2 – Storage Shed
If you don’t have the space for a full garage, a storage shed is another good option. With a shed, you won’t have the ample space that a garage provides, but you will still have the indoor setting that will keep the elements away from your ATV. When you order from American Carports, Inc., you’ll be able to customize the design of your shed so it allows you to move your ATV in and out with little trouble.
#3 – Carport Storage
Even if it does not create the indoor space that would be ideal, a carport is still a worthy option for ATV storage. Putting a roof over your ATV will protect it from most, although not all, of the elements. Also, with no doors to contend with, you can hop on and drive away in no time at all. You may even be able to put this new carport to use for other purposes, providing even more value for your money.
