Insurance Options

Storage unit insurance covers your stored items should they be lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed in a variety of situations. However, it’s not always necessary to purchase a separate insurance policy. Your stored items might be covered under your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, but it’s important to learn what exactly is covered. While most of these policies provide some coverage for items stored away from your home, stored belongings aren’t usually covered the same way as belongings in your home. Your policy may provide only limited coverage, and you still have to pay your deductible first.

If your existing policy doesn’t cover stored items, sometimes you can add an extension to include items in a storage unit. While this will increase your premium, it should still be cheaper than purchasing a separate storage insurance policy.

You can also purchase a policy through an independent self-storage insurer, if you’d don’t have homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, can’t extend your current policy, or your insurance company doesn’t offer storage unit insurance. These plans are tailored specifically for self-storage purposes and typically offer higher coverage amounts with affordable monthly rates. You provide the insurer with an inventory of your contents with approximate values, then they usually offer a range of policies available that fit your actual needs.
