The cost of cover depends on the value of your things, so get in touch for more information on pricing.

What's covered?

Actual physical loss of or damage to our customers’ property caused by fire, lightning, explosion, earthquake, aircraft or articles dropped there from, storm, flood, bursting &/or leaking pipes, ingress of water or other liquid substance, moth, insect or vermin from an external cause, theft accompanied by forcible and violent entry to or exit from the building or storage unit, riot, strike, civil commotion, malicious damage, and impact by vehicles or railway rolling stock.

2. Using an existing policy

If you prefer, you can use your home contents or business insurance if it covers your goods whilst in storage. You'll need to bring a confirmation letter from your insurance provider when setting up your contract. Read through the Insurance Policy Requirements to make sure you're covered.
