Many service centers are also motor distributors, keeping a large stock of motors to sell. In addition, many hold motors in storage for specific customers as their spares. Many end users also keep spare motors on site to keep production moving when a motor fails or needs an overhaul. In any of these cases, whether a motor is stored for a month or many years, there are certain steps that must be taken to ensure that as soon as a motor is taken out of storage, it will be in good condition.

Keep in mind that the suggested time periods are not absolute; different environmental conditions might necessitate a different schedule. Also keep in mind that smaller motors may not need the same special attention that a larger or more critical machine will need.
