Sports Equipment Storage Insurance

Insurance is mandatory for storing your belongings, which is why you can’t store with RSS without contents insurance. It’s your responsibility to make sure your belongings are insured while they’re in storage, so you have the option to:

  • Take out sports equipment storage insurance through Ready Steady Store
  • Use your own home contents insurance (providing it covers your goods being in storage and meets our requirements – speak to our team to find out more. Give them a call on 0800 321 3211) 

You can find out more about our insurance policy requirements on our website. Our insurance includes:

  • A new-for-old insurance policy that’s specially created for self storage and covers a broad range of incidents that may not be covered under your normal household policy
  • Insurance approved by the Self Storage Association

Of course, the cost of the insurance depends on the value of your belongings. If you choose to go with your existing contents insurance, before setting up your personal storage agreement you’ll need to:

  • Bring a letter from your insurance provider that confirms your policy details and clearly states that it matches our policy
  • Check with us to make sure your home policy will be accepted. Give our team a call on  0800 321 3211 to discuss it

If you’re not sure about your insurance cover, talk to our experts FREE on 0800 321 3211 and they’ll be able to help.


Frequently Asked Questions


How often can I access my stored equipment?

With your own PIN code to enter the building and your own key to your unit, you can access anything you’ve stored with us 24-hours a day. You won’t be restricted to our office hours, though there may not always be a member of staff on-site.

How safe is my sports equipment?

Safety and security are our top priorities. Each location uses PIN access, so only our staff and customers can access the car park outside regular office hours. Many of our facilities are also protected by high perimeter fencing. The premises are protected by CCTV 24 hours a day, with cameras also covering the entrances and exits. These cameras are monitored by Ready Steady Store staff during office hours, and by our surveillance partners outside normal working hours. All of our stores are fitted with smoke and fire detectors, and some also offer individually alarmed units for additional peace of mind.

Can you help me to transport my sports equipment?

We’ve partnered with Enterprise Van Hire to offer an exclusive deal for Ready Steady Store customers who require transport for moving in to their storage units. This offer includes:

  • Van hire from £49 per day
  • An Enterprise transit-size van for a full 24-hour period

Contact your local store or get in touch with us for more details. Terms and conditions apply.

Do you offer free parking?

Yes. All of our stores offer free parking for our customers. This allows you to easily drop off or collect large pieces of equipment with ease. Some units also offer drive-up access, which is ideal for unloading items like boats. Items such as jet skis can be stored in units, so long as the fuel is drained from the petrol tank.


While renting equipment helps to free up space in your home, if you’re a sports enthusiast you’ll know that the right equipment makes a huge impact. There’s no need to compromise by using rental equipment that isn’t right for you; simply take advantage of our great value storage facilities and know that your gear is never far away.

Whether you need to store large sports equipment that doesn’t easily fit in your home, or you’re looking for somewhere to keep it safe out of season, self-storage is a great solution. Whatever type of sport you’re into, there’s space for your kit at Ready Steady Store.
