Why You Should Ask About Storage Insurance
Storage insurance and coverage policies can vary significantly among different companies. You should never assume your belongings are fully covered simply because you rented a unit. Before deciding on a storage facility, you will want to inquire about their coverage policy and what types of damage are included. Also, we recommend consulting with your personal insurance agency about whether your plan covers damage to property kept in a storage unit, as this may have an impact on which storage facility best fits your needs.
When inquiring about storage insurance policies, it is important to be completely open about what exactly you plan on storing. Some belongings are more susceptible to certain damaging forces, so this will help you determine if that unit is safe for your property. You don’t want to make the mistake of expecting an item to be covered when in fact it’s excluded from the facility’s coverage policy. Some common loss or damage causes include:
- Excessive heat
- Building collapse/leaking water/explosion/vermin
The facility manager should be able to provide details on what is included in their coverage policy. Accidents can happen at any time. Don’t make the mistake of thinking your property is protected just because you have it in storage. Consider any time and effort you put into investigating a facility’s insurance policy an investment in the value of your belongings.
