Do I need insurance for self storage?

Insurance is not automatically added to the belongings you choose to leave in storage. Some companies may include insurance to your renting price but others may not include insurance to keep the costs down, so that they are the lowest competing price – to encourage your business.  

When storing your belongings in an entirely new location, you’re probably wondering whether or not you need insurance. Thing is, nothing is certain, although there are excellent safety measures (i.e. CCTV, alarm systems, secure locking technology and staff on site) there’s always the unfortunate chance of fluke incidents. That said, not everyone does opt for insurance but most storage companies can offer insurance should you require it.

You may not require extra insurance: if you have a current home insurance provider because it’s likely that your policy will include any items that are not stored within your property. Be sure to check this before spending more money on insurance you don’t need.
