Storage insurance for your personal possessions

Many people utilise self-storage at different times in their lives. It may be that you need some temporary storage whilst you are moving house, are storing your possessions whilst completing building work or renovating your house, or perhaps you have simply run out of room at home.

Whatever the reason you are using self-storage - you will want to make sure that your personal possessions are well protected whilst they are being stored. After all, if your personal possessions are worth the cost of storage, they are worthy of being insured.

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...

The issues of what is deemed essential and non-essential travel and essential and non-essential businesses seem to be open to a degree of interpretation.
Here at Store-Insure, customer service is at the heart of what we do, that’s why we ask for feedback from everyone who buys a policy from us.
Now that we have officially said goodbye to summer for another year, it is time to start storing away the items which are not likely to be needed again over the winter.
If you are planning an extended trip, whether for work reasons or just for fun, you may be considering using self-storage to house your stuff whilst you are away. For instance, if you are considering renting out your property whilst away, emptying it of your personal possessions would certainly be a recommended course of action.
