Many people go to self storage facilities with the intention of storing their valuable possessions whether it be wine, art, furniture or electronics. What some renters forget is these storage facilities do not protect your belongings in case of fire, tornado, flood or any other disaster which is why you need to get insurance for your storage unit.
Insurance is often overlooked and one of the last things renters think about even though it is one of the most important. There is no telling when tornado, hurricane, fire or flood will strike a location. The minimal monthly cost of insuring your items is far outweighed by the peace of mind you will have knowing your items can be easily replaced if damaged.
Many, if not all, self storage managers will ask you about self storage insurance once you move into your storage unit. If you have insurance on your home or your apartment, why wouldn’t you have insurance in your storage unit where you are storing more of your valuable possessions? You can easily purchase insurance through the storage facility, through a self storage insurance company or through your home/renters insurance.
The importance of renters insurance cannot be overstated. The monthly cost is minimal and the peace of mind you will have knowing your belongings are safe is priceless. The odds of a natural disaster or accident occurring at the self storage facility are minimal but why take a chance with your belongings? Be protected with self storage insurance.
