Many people assume that self-storage providers insure all the goods they store for customers, but this is not generally the case. Very few self-storage companies offer comprehensive item insurance within the standard charges that you pay. Some may offer basic cover as part of the package, but this may not be enough for your needs, bearing in mind that the goods you store may be valuable or of great sentimental value.

Your first step should be to contact your home insurer to see if the items you place in the facility will be covered by your domestic home contents policy. It may be that you are fully covered for goods stored away from home or you may be able to pay an additional small premium to get such cover. This could well be cheaper than taking out a separate insurance policy. If you do provide your own insurance cover, be aware that the self-storage provider may ask to see proof of your policy before they let you rent their space.

The majority of self-storage providers will offer help with insurance. Some have policies of their own that you can buy, however these can be poor value for money. There are alternative providers who are not tied to a specific self-storage company, and in many instances are able to offer lower premiums. Do your research and you could save a tidy sum over the long term.
