Are my goods insured?

We take a look at who insures your goods and the easiest way to do this.

One of the most common queries we receive from those looking to store their goods within our safe and secure self-storage facility, is whether they need to pay for insurance cover.

Customers are obviously concerned to ensure that their items are covered in the event of theft or damage and need reassured on this key point before they consider securing their own unit with us. The requirement for additional insurance is often one of the biggest misconceptions about self-storage facilities in the UK.

The building in which our storage units are installed is insured by us through the NFU. In terms of making sure that the contents of your storage unit(s) are insured, the easiest way to fully protect your items is as follows:

  • Contact your existing insurance company (this could be your home or business insurer);
  • Inform your insurance company that your goods are stored within a reputable self-storage facility;
  • Confirm the details of the items you intend to store there and the value of the goods in question;
  • In the vast majority of cases, your insurer will either charge you no additional premium or a small admin fee in order to ensure your goods are covered under your existing policy;
  • It really is that simple!
