Storage insurance for your personal possessions

Do I really need storage Insurance?

Yes - Most reputable storage providers will insist that you take out storage insurance, many will even try and sell it to you! The storage facility will be insuring its own risks to the building etc. but this will not cover loss or damage to your possessions.  Your household insurance, generally speaking, will not extend to cover your possessions out of the home.

From our blog...


Not all self storage facilities are the same. When deciding what works best for you it is worth taking time to consider the points in this guide.


Clothing is one of the most common items put into storage units by households. Clothing can take up a lot of space in a house.


Why declutter? In addition to the obvious advantage of having more space at home, decluttering brings a range of other benefits.

Keeping your storage unit organised is vital. When renting a unit, you pay for the floorspace. By keeping your unit organised you can fit more belongings in a smaller space, making your storage as cost-effective as possible. Keeping your unit organised also allows you to find items more easily and reduces the chance that anything is damaged in storage.
