If so - at what interval?
Any other motor storage advice?

What do they fear? the mechanic pick up one motor, hide it in his pocket and walk away without register the inventory "transaction"?

If the Stores/Procurement organization does not desire to allow maintenance technicians into the store room to rotate motor shafts and measure insulation resistance periodically, then they must be trained and tasked to do so. The "maintenance" being done in this case is the preservation of the value of the stored asset, and the Stores organization is directly responsible for that by maintaining proper storage environment/conditions and doing what is necessary to ensure the stored spares are usable for the organization. Financially, any spare motor that is not properly maintained becomes worthless to the maintenance organization. My guess is, that once you propose that the stores people perform the maintenance, that maintenance technicians will be allowed in the stock room again with less hassle.
