We know your possessions are valuable. That’s why, at Bristol Self Storage we do everything we possibly can to make sure they’re safe and secure while in storage. But there are some things we just can’t guarantee to protect your goods against, such as fire and flood. For those events you need self storage insurance. We provide bespoke self storage insurance.
For example, if a customer didn’t defrost their freezer properly before placing it within a storage building, this might lead to water leaking into your storage room causing damage to your possessions. Unfortunately the majority of home insurance policies don’t cover your valuable possessions while they are in self storage units. And those that do, don’t cover specific storage perils. So we’ve come up with a policy that can be tailored exactly to meet your storage insurance needs.
Ensuring everyone has self storage insurance
In the past, customers have taken out their own insurance at the start of their storage, then not let it continue. This meant they couldn’t make a claim if the worst happened or have storage insurance to offer if their goods damaged someone else’s possessions. For everyone’s peace of mind we need to know that all customers are covered at all times – that’s why all customers must insure their goods while they are in our self storage units. It’s worth noting that many of our competitors take the same approach. Bristol Self Storage insurance has been specially designed for self storage and covers a wider range of potential perils than normal household insurance.
What our storage insurance covers against
Our self storage insurance policy has a number of benefits over most household insurance policies. It will cover your goods against third party liability and just about everything else;
- Physical loss or damage to your property caused by burst pipes or escape of water (including damage to labels on wine bottles)
- Theft accompanied by forcible and violent entry or exit
- Moth, insect or vermin damage from an external source
- Civil commotion
- Malicious damage
- Impact by vehicles and aircraft
Protects your home insurance benefits
Because our storage unit insurance is designed specifically for items in self storage facilities, it doesn’t affect the ‘no claims’ on your home insurance or claims you might make on your home insurance in the future.
